Are you saying you get 5 or 6 hours with iRig Keys or just in normal use of music apps? I should point out, I have an iPad 1 and I get fairly close to 10% battery loss every hour doing 'typical' web browsing/e-mail, even many games still provide around that much life. When I pop into synth apps, I definitely see a decrease, but I have never felt it unreasonable. I also don't have the 3G version, so am not using up battery for that.
I recharge about every 3 or 4 days with my use. Though I very rarely get below 20% before recharging. I usually charge around the 40% mark so I know I will have enough battery for my next day.
