    Is it possible to connect two microphones to the iPad in any fashion? And if you can, is there a way to record both tracks simultaneously as L/R audio?

    I imagine you can connect one mic to the 3.5mm audio jack and one through the dock connector via USB, but will the system recognize them as two input devices? And is there a program that can record each device, simultaneously, to separate audio tracks?

    Thanks for any help.

    I have yet to find anything like that, although you may want to just pick up a small mixer, run the two mics into that and then that into your iPad. Unfortunately, it will record as only one track in most applications, but there isn't a whole lot of other options that I know of.

    That's what I thought. Thanks for confirming though.
