    Default iPad USB Audio Via Camera Connection Kit?


    Though it's a completely unconfirmed rumor at this point, sources are saying that the long-awaited iPad Camera Accessory Kit will support USB audio. Based on a post to a public mailing list maintained by Apple for audio developers and some second-hand reporting, the Creative Digital Music blog is saying that the Camera Kit - which is essentially a USB adaptor for the iPad's dock connector - will support the USB audio device class protocol. This would allow the iPad to connect to a whole range of Audio Class-compliant devices like USB speakers or MIDI musical instrument controllers.

    Most USB interfaces do not support USB Audio Class without custom drivers, and generally an interface box is required. Direct support for Audio Class through the Camera Connection Kit might indicate that Apple is thinking about marketing the new device to high-end audio designers. In addition, the USB Audio Class supports USB telephony, and so this could potentially allow the use of USB voice modems with the iPad, with supporting (read: jailbroken) software.

    It's not known at this point, of course, what USB devices will work with the camera Connection Kit, if any will work at all. But the existence of a standard port seems likely to enable a range of uses for the iPad, whether envisioned (or supported) by Apple or not.

    Wow. Was it so hard to just put a usb port on there? Why all the crappy attachments? That "dongle" looks so sloppy and breakable...

    Should have put a USB slot in the first place. The iPad is getting kind of good now even though I used to make fun of it as a big iPod Touch, 2nd gen here I come.

    I need some iPhone news, I'm sooo desperate, I keep coming back to MMi for an update!!!!! I really can not stop

    I really don't think the iPad is ever going to have a camera in any future generations. Based on how apple has done things, everything in future generations will be internal upgrades via the Memory, Ram, A5,6 chip i5 i7 processor etc type things. Remember, this device is for casual use to use in-between the iphone and Macbook/Pro. I think the usb adapters is a great accessory btw.

    Because of the screen size and processor of the iPad I am guessing.

    not really...u see those comments are only for people that complain about the iPad and want a laptop...u dont really need usb still but if it adds it then fine, if not, then fine...

    im mean seriously what would u use it for? charge something? idont think you want to charge anything off the iPads battery...
    sync something? now thats dumb...

    camera? well kinda but why not over bluetooth like camera-a/b available on the appstore....
    keyboard? already has one with a dock and u can use bluetooth
    mouse? seriously...no go

    now this audio thing is a go for me but wont be supported by most cards like mBox or m-audio unless its a small one...
