Just for the benefit of those still contemplating an iPad I'm curious if you tried any other software other than GarageBand? And if not did you try re-installing GarageBand? This feels like a pretty classic case of sample rate errors.
Or could there be a difference between the iPad and the iPad Pro that causes the problems? Maybe the performance of the regular iPad is not enough?

That's what I think.
Using a maginal spec machine as always been a bad plan, I know....
I'm OK just using an iRig Pre with a good microphone in a decent room

Iím using a old, first edition iPad mini. Iíve never had even a hint of trouble and Iím fairly demanding when it comes to recording environments working well.

Alright so then we're back to software issues

Most likely

I don't wanna get too terribly deep here. zguitz point (I think) was it didn't work for him. I believe and respect that. I'm also certain he had a frustrating time of things. My only point is that since it didn't work for zguitz doesn't mean it doesn't work and in the end folks following this thread deserve to know the distinctions. I think zguitz is on board with that

I tech supported Pro Tools for years and I'm aware of how terribly frustrating tech issues can be and it's clear from zguitz post he got frustrated. Who wouldn't under those circumstances! But my experiences also tells me that 95% of what a customer interprets as a product failure were quite simply, and in the end, set-up failures.

Properly configured the iPad makes a viable recording platform

No need to apologize for sharing your experiences! It just added to an interesting topic and shed some light on the fact that the setup might not work for everybody and that there are software/compatibility factors to consider.

Default iPad Pro recording setup - love it

Just wanted to share that I have had great success using an iPad Pro 12.9, a Roland Rubix 22 USB audio interface, and two AKG P170 small diaphragm condenser mics. I use iRig Recorder 3 software which does both audio and video recording. I really love this setup. When not recording, the iPad Pro is great as a tab music reader with the forScore app.

Default NIPD New IPad Day

I love recording on IPads. Iíve owned and used them for years.

My drummer is an engineer with a bunch of gear, so I rely on him for higher fidelity recordings, but Iíve recorded solo albums and have done commercial work with my IPad.

The ApogeeMic+ is terrific, but handle it carefully. It is nowhere near as rugged as a 57. Also, Iíd recommend a pop filter for vocals.

As far as a DAW goes, Auria is too complicated for me, and Garage Band is too basic/low fidelity. The perfect DAW for my skill level is the Harmonic Dog DAW. It sounds excellent and is modeled on an old, simple analog interface. I recommend it to anyone who misses the simplicity of a tape deck.

Iíve been recording on iPads for a few years. Iím extremely happy with the iRig Pro Duo - it allows for a powered mic and guitar to be simultaneously fed digitally into the iPad as two separate tracks. I use Cubasis as the software. Cubasis is a pretty powerful DAW with a good amount of built in effects, digital instrument samples (I mostly use the drums) and mixing capabilities. I rarely listen to my stuff and say, Ďgosh I wish the recording quality was betterí. I DO listen and think, Ďboy, I wish that guy was a better singer / player.í

IK Multimedia, which makes the iRig, does have a variety of hardware and software products that seem designed for IPad and even IPhone recording. I like their stuff.

Cheers

Dave
