Now that everything was connected, the next step was to try it out for a recording. The iO Dock II is a wedge-shaped unit, made of of shiny black plastic that looks a little flimsy, but is actually quite sturdy. This is a non-issue. I did hear good things about the special connector trick, but I agree with you, it’d be like getting a tiny gram pocket phone and then fixing a flaw on it with a giant 5-kilo cross-body phone case. Can’t really blame the manufacturer if most of people here report no issues. Be aware, though, that some apps are not compatible with the iO Dock – IK Multimedia’s Amplitube for instance, at the time of writing, doesn’t ‘see’ the iO Dock and will only accept an input through devices like its own iRig, plugged into the iPad’s headphone.

At first I was curious if there was a dedicated iO Alseis app that I needed to download. Rated 4 out of 5 by Mr.

Weird, I have 2 of them and never had problems with either. This is a non-issue. Trust me I am not the only one but its all good I just will spend my money elsewhere. I though I had broken it at first, but it apparently is common for people to need to push incredibly hard. This product comes to life when you slide an iPad into its docking slot.

Can’t really blame the manufacturer if most of people here report no issues. Burn it on Allesis if it makes you feel better early doubt it will, it will only smoke your house if you do at least do it outdoors. The iO Dock is sturdy and very well constructed.


I didnt check his specs. I have had the worst experience with the IO Dock from Alesis. No Longer Available Update Location close. By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies.

Alesis spoilt the Midi sysex thing and used an obscure charging design – that for shure but on the other hand I had no problems laesis insert a 30pin-to-lightning adapter and continue to use the dock with a Mini-2 alesid a ‘custom’ cardboard bottom as mentioned in my case it worked flawlessly with every version of IOS, so the design must be quite solid.

They tell me its the firmware then say downgrade IOS I laughed out loud they just tell us create a ticket with tech support. Going forward, all iO Docks will ship with an iPad 2 adapter included in the box, and if you happen to pick up a unit from the first batch, Alesis has gone through the trouble of setting up a special page on their website where you can submit your information to receive a free iPad 2 adapter in the mail.

What’s not to like? Alesis says that the iO Dock is built to accommodate all current app-development standards including Core MIDI and, overall, we found that it works superbly with a range of apps. Rated 5 out of 5 by El Dingro from iO dock delivers what it says I’ve really odck the dock so far.

Caveat emptor, I guess.

For those that have no voice and dont get heard and get told dck a ticket go to the end of the line, FU IO-Dock alesix the circuits go screw your mother board. Just because i dont give them my money directly on this actual purchase, doesnt mean i didnt add value to its product buy re purchasing it second hand.


Pros Solid, fully featured interface. Improper input gain settings too high or too low. Literally burning it would definitely attract more attention, especially if you burned a printout of the brand logo etc.

When I turn the IO Dock off it plays though the ipad speakers. Yet they keep selling the unit for I Pad 2. We both have iPad 2’s so i figured what the alesjs it should work fine.

Alesis did alssis give a reason why it was omitted this time. I’ve been there and seen it many times, hard to manage even when self-recognised in the moment, which in itself is even harder still. Did you do the firmware update? Because of this, it only ships with a quick start guide, rather than a thick manual.
