Our coverage of music will never really end, it only will continue to grow with each new product launched or discovered that we here at TNN believe is a needed supplement for your iPad 2. Music is Magic parts one and two focus on the guitar and percussion respectively. That being said, as committed to in previous posts we’ve begun the final chapter: Music Production on the iPad 2: Music is Magic Pt. 3. This post will start a little slower than the others meaning we’ll post one product at a time adding another when we find a suitable addition. Producers, the ones who stay in the studio 24/7, tweaking the timing of each audio track and fine tuning the levels have a needed companion for their iPad 2 in the Alesis iO Dock. Music producers are very familiar with Alesis. Alesis does it all when it comes to music production: designing and marketing electronic musical instruments, digital audio processors, audio mixers, digital audio interfaces, recording equipment, drum machines, professional audio and electronic percussion products. In fact Alesis produced the first, under $1000, 16-bit professional effects processor, the MIDIverb. Alesis has moved right alongside technology with the Alesis iO Dock.
