Other good stuff on the Alesis iO Dock includes the composite video output for connecting to an external video monitor, the USB connection, and a footswitch input for even more control options. Use it with practically any Apple iPad app... you're gonna love the iO Dock!

Needs some software fixes

Written by Alesis IO Dock bad things from NY
June 30, 2011
Music Background: Pro
So far it's a great piece of engineering, but there are a few things that are not good.

1. Video only plays out the video RCA jack when connected to the Alesis io dock, not good if you don't have a tv handy.... You have to slip your iPad out of the dock to have the video play on the iPad again..... Gotta get a fix for this ASAP.

2. It's not that easy to remove the iPa... read more [+]d once it's in the io dock..... Maybe good? Maybe bad?..... We'll see over time.

3. My Akai lpk25 keyboard will not work into the USB post on the io dock, probably does not supply enough power..... Too bad as this is a great little keyboard for travel. close [-]
