I want to add one more thing
There are Mini jack-USB Converters out there in which you can plug into the apple iPad Camera Connections.
So, hypothetically I can plug the iRig Mic into the mini jack-usb converter-into the camera connector into the ipad port INSTEAD of the headphone port. Ive been reading that if you use the headphone port there are limitations.
Would doing the converters be an unneeded expense, would it be recognized using it that way?
