Reed Ghazala’s breakout desk turns the iPad into a serious music tool.

So many cool experimental music apps on the iPad! But what a lousy interface. Dealing with dongles to get audio into and out of the thing is a pain.

This desk allows all jacks to be mounted on the aluminum case for easy access. Plus, jacks are upgraded from dongly 1/8″ mini to standard 1/4″.

The feel is nice, the whole thing is lightweight and back-packable.

With the iPad at a comfortable playing angle and held stationary by the desk, and with the superior audio ins and outs, it becomes a much more serious and friendly music tool.
