StaffPad and Speakers

I am wondering if anyone is using a particularly good Bluetooth speaker with StaffPad? I am able to plug my iPad directly into my soundcard, but it drains the battery very quickly. I had thought of purchasing a couple of Homepods, but then I found out that StaffPad won't play over them. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I use IK multimedia iLoud MicroMonitors. For such small speakers they kick ass.

They seem to be perfect for what I 'm looking for. Mixing with headphones is really starting to hurt my ears but I don't have the room for big studio monitors. They seem to look nice and small and from the reviews seem to have a great sound.

Thanks for the recommendation!!

So I picked up the IK multimedia iLoud MicroMonitors. It's truly a whole lot of sound that comes from those two little boxes, and these are the perfect complement to StaffPad. Thanks @dcoscina. (And no, I haven't gotten over the fact that you just cost me $300.:rofl:)

Instead of buying some bluetooth speakers, would anyone know if it's possible to route the audio from Staffpad on my iPad through to my iMac, so I could make use of the speaker system that I have for the iMac?

I am able to do this with my Apogee Duet, but it eats the iPad's battery in a big hurry.

How’s the low end? Do the contrabasses come through?

I bought a bluetooth audio receiver and connected it to my hifi system (which actually contains of a discarded pair of Genelec 1031a from earlier studio use).

Yes, it’s super easy. All you have to do is connect the iPad to your computer and enable it in audio/midi settings. I then set it as the input in logic and create a track for it that I leave in monitor mode. I also have one of my good Kontakt pianos on another track as a sketching tool. Now the audio from staffpad is played through logic and I have my favorite piano sound for sketching. The perfect setup.

How do you do so? is there a cable involved?

That's a good idea - thanks for the tip!

That's fantastic, I'm going to give it a try, thanks!

I just go one of these:

So, connect my tablet to this via Bluetooth and plug into my Scarlett and monitors. Works very nicely!

I had seen it on Amazon for $100, but that was a little steep. Then saw it was $60 on the manufacteror's site, so went for it.
