The iPAD had several apps that either make sound or records sound. The apps that record sound use the microphone next to the headphone port. I tried using a couple external mics in the headphone port, but I haven't had much luck with them. The microphone has about 5-7 foot range of good audio outside of that it depends on the person speaking. The iPAD speaker works well for small to medium size classrooms, however with students talking and larger classrooms external speakers will probably be needed. If you are listening to anything the has stereo sound, a speaker cord with a third ring will be needed to head the added layers.

The first video demonstrates the Jampad app. The second video show the full version of DigiDrummer HD lite in action.
