Will this work with a mic for recording vocals?

Could be wrong but I don't think this interface is intended for vocals/mics.
Generally mics use a different connector and require additional power/preamp'ing to work.
Apogee IS coming out with something (a mic) called MIKE that is intended to direct plug into the iPad, with typical Apogee sound/transfer quality.
I'm planning on getting both and eventually the Symphony I/O mmmmm.

You'll need an impedance converter. And you'll need to make sure +40dB of gain is enough for your mic. And if the mic is a condenser, which most vocal mics are, you'll need an external phantom power supply.
