iPad 3 Soundcard purchase

Hi everyone,

I am considering a coupe of soundcards to use with Cubasis on an iPad 3 for some sessions I’ll be running at a school.

Based on my need for Midi i/O I liked the ‘Roland DUO-CAPTURE EX’ and I have also read some good things about the ‘Focusrite Scarlett 8i6’. The Focusrite iTrack solo is recommended by Steinberg, but there’s no midi.

Has anyone had experience of any other good I/O devices.?

Also, has anyone got an recommendations for a midi switch box that will allow something like 10 midi switchable into 1 output (into the soundcard)???
