I am not sure but something like this might get the job done. I have not tried it personally.

Can you tell us a bit more about the device? If it shows un the Finder you might be able to import the files into iTunes and transfer them to the iPad that way.

There is no such thing as a Firewire to USB converter that actually works. I think you're barking up the wrong tree here sir.

I suggest you look into posting the files created into something like Dropbox and retrieving them on the iPad that way.

What is the Alesis 014? Link please - they have nothing on their site by that name and google returns nothing.

As chas notes, there is no firewire to USB device that I am aware of - the 2 are incompatible.

Without knowing what the Alesis 014 is, not sure how the Alesis ioDock for the iPad will work since there is no firewire connection on it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

sorry my mistake io14.......The Alesis iO|14 uses state of the art FireWire technology to deliver professional–level features such as Alesis High Definition Microphone Preamps, Cirrus audiophile converters and jitter elimination technology, with high–quality 24–bit/192k audio input. The iO|14 is designed for easy use with PC o
again sorry but my question is still can i connect the 'Alesis io14' to ipad?
just found this site sonicelectronix.com check out the review with 'Alesis iO Dock' they seam to think it can work.

After seeing the device, I am inclined to think it would work also as you wouldn't be using the FW ports to connect to the Dock, but the XLR, Phone, Midi, etc. ports.

With the iO dock, you would be recording directly to the iPad rather than your Mac with whichever app you're using.
