Alesis Updates iO Dock

The popular iPad dock interface by Alesis sees an upgrade to version II. Alesis iO Dock II now supports both 30-pin and Lightning-powered iPads with interchangeable connectors. Unlike the earlier announced iTrack Dock the iO Dock II doesn’t support the iPad Mini and the product details don’t mention the iPad Air either.

Other than that, you’ll find all the necessary MIDI and audio in- / outputs that you can use in your Core Midi / Audio apps
