I’m trying to figure out if I can connect my iPad directly to the OPLab using Apple’s 30-pin connector.
You need a CCK it activate MIDI on the iPad
CCK it the key! Get ready for OPfun.
Aargh! I knew it! I hate that little CCK*ing thing!
|Q: Can I use an apple lightning to 30-pin connector with the supplied 30-pin connector?|
Can I use a camera connector cable instead?
|A: Until we can supply our own Lightning equipped connection cables, the Apple 30-pin to lightning adaptor will indeed work with our 30-pin connection cable.|
The Camera connector wil NOT provide full functionality with our unit.
Short answer, No. The USB Type A Host only supports USB MIDI class compliant devices such as keyboards and controllers, either directly or through a standard USB hub. Although you can plug in your iOS device through this port using your sync cable, the iOS device will not initialize with iConnectMIDI.
If you want to get a second iOS device connected to your iConnectMIDI, you can order one directly from us by selecting here.
I get it. There’s no way around it. I either need the CCK or something that replicates it. Sorry for being daft, thanks for clearing this up!
