Type C / USB-C bummer

Post by Bob Amser » Thu Apr 04, 2019 1:23 am

So, after a couple of years away from recording (life and a dying iPad 4 got in the way) I now have an iPad Pro for work and the first thing to be installed was, of course, Auria. As Ali G would say - “I is back!”

Here’s my problem. I was nicely setup with an iTrack Solo and a MIDI to lightening adaptor (iRig) but both have a lightening connection. The iPad Pro, I have discovered, does not. Thanks, Jobs, for that 😉

Anyway. Does anyone have experience if successfully solving that problem with some adaptor, or do I need to find a couple of hundred notes to replace my interface gear?

Auria, iTrack Solo, AKG414, Audio Mastering

Based on some searching around, the general consensus is that it is not currently possible to connect a Lighting accessory to a USB-C iPad.

Steve Jobs died before they made this change. He's not the one you should be blaming.

I’m way late to the party I realize, but you should have no issue using it with the usb cable and a USB C to USB A adapter. Or skip the adapter and get a USB type B to USB C cable. The USB C adapter on new iPad Pros is actually a big upgrade, you can use them with all kinds of third party adapters and devices and it supplies bus power, much better than Lightning.
