Originally announced in January of last year, and expected to have shipped in the second quarter of 2012, the Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD fell off the radar for a while. A new video just popped up on the Peavey YouTube channel!
This interface looks great, offering a digital connection to your apps through the 30-pin connector instead of the bleed-prone headphone jack solutions. At $100 it comes in at the same price as IK Multimedia's iRig HD, but offers substantially more I/O allowing for headphone and line-out from the box as well.
Additionally, it will even charge your iPad/iPhone/iTouch when connected to the optional AC adapter! That is a great advantage for AmpKit LiNK HD over similar USB interfaces.
This is quite a boon for people who want to record both to and from the iPad on a budget. Seriously, after a lot of recording from that noisy headphone jack I am desperate for anything else! If they can ever get this thing released it might be worth serious consideration as a low-cost high-quality interface.
Update: Ampkit just tweeted me that it is shipping now!
