If I were going to spend $70 on another MIDI dock connector, I would get the iRig because (a) it can charge your device while you play and (b) it has MIDI thru. Plus you get some extra SampleTank instruments. Or, I would save my shekels and get something that can also do audio input and output.

I was hoping that there would be a significant price difference between this and (amongst others) the iRig Midi, but there isn't.
I like this because as an owner of an Midi Mobilizer, I'm not a fan of the whole 'sizeable device hanging of the side of my iPad' thing.
I'm not too worried about chaging, as I only use it for short periods; the Midi thru would be nice though.

Bleb, I too dislike the IRIG's cumbersome design and curse it repeatedly..Moreover, I use a Belkin brand cozy to sheath my beloved I-Pad and that makes for an even worse interface connection. Which brings me to the real reason I posted: I wear 2 condoms at all times, this way when I take one off, it feels like the real thing...

I haven't made the dive into the midi connectors yet, but I can't help but feel that a better device will be forthcoming. I worry about the device simply breaking the connector and $70 seems a little like a monopoly across the board. Same for audio devices ranging from $70-200+. With midibridge, I can get some pretty reliable signals between iOS devices and PC.

So true, my hallowed testicle. My Akai Synthstation 49 will be shipping by month's end !!
