Why cant I find an IPAD dock with audio and midi out??

I know about the Alesis IO dock and apparently its a piece of $hite
but nothing else seems to exist
Behringer has something but not available

3 versions of the Ipad and no one has made a worthy studio dock

Curious

what's the best adapter with input that you've found besides the alesis, even if it doesn't have midi?

...maybe that's a contributing factor: takes a while to get your dock hardware design ready to go and then Apple go and change the form factor or connectors or both...

Does it need to be a dock? How about Tascam iU2?

No im just wondering why there arent any docks that would be useful for studio purposes
A dock is just more solid you know

I finally was able to get rtpmidi going and now my ipad is wireless
Just gotta figure out how to get the latency down
Perhaps if i extend the count it to 8 bars instead of 4 it will get the sync earlier
But its pretty cool
I can play the Animoog from my master keyboard
As well as track the midi from the ipad 8)
