A nice little interface which packs a lot of features, including 8 inputs simultaneously on the iPad! Has USB 2.0 class compliant drivers and works flawlessly. Extremely high audio quality from RME.

Here's a video that features MultiTrack DAW at the 2012 NAMM show.

I saw a NAMM video (w. MT) a few days ago, which showed when they did a "class compliant" mode change to make it work for Ipad. I.e. they made it to also work for Ipad. However, I think I saw somewhere it would cost $1000 which is a bit too much unless the buyer also runs a studio.

The new small black Tascam IU2 interface (2 in + midi) looked nice though at $149 with included Idock-cable. Also works with computers. http://tascam.com/product/iu2/

Behringer also have a Alesis IO-dock clone. But what if the user prefers to turn the view 90 degrees? Might not cost too much maybe.

This new sound card apparently has ADAT input, useful if like me youve got a 8 channel mic preamp. does anyone have any knowledge on whether inputs to the fireface thru ADAT will be seen by the iPad and MultiTrack?

Unfortunately not, however I have heard that this will be possible with a firmware upgrade. You will be able to create templates which are mappings of various hardware inputs to the Class Compliant topology setup.
