I found this sent to me in a IK Multimedia Newsletter, it seems there is a new product from the guys down at IK Multimedia where you can record your vocals into a IPod, IPhone or IPAD. what should be next is a midi interface from IK Multimedia but we can always hope for it, I know people are working on that right now and this is interesting to see the IRig for recording guitar and the IRig MIC for recording Vocals, but I suggest something that has a program like cubase or FL Studio, ect on the IPAD like maybe a LOGIC Express for the IPAD, ect. I think that would be cool to have.
Here is what they have to say about the IRig Mic:
