power ipad and use a audio interface at the same time

Post by acaonweb » Fri Dec 12, 2014 5:23 am

Hi guys!!
Maybe i can find the solution to my problem

I've a great Scarlett Focusrite 18i8 that works great with Auria and my iPad Air (1)
The only problem is that the audio interface doesn't power the ipad.

So i'm asking to everyone: there is a way to connect USB audio interface to ipad and power the ipad at the same time? Obvusly i don't want change my focusrite :)

So:
1) There is a way using some powered USB HUB?
2) There are maybe any thirdy part Camera Connection Kits that allow Midi USB and powering the iPad?
3) Any other idea/solution?


Thanx in advance

Theres a "Charges iPad?" column. There may be other ones too that fellow forum users have found, but these are what the Auria team has tried out and verified.

No, you can't do it. Stop trying!

You need an MFi interface. And not any old MFi interface. Apogee or iTrack, not Avid.
