Focusrite iTrack Solo not working on new iPad

Postby Francer » Mon Jun 12, 2017 12:51 pm

Hi folks

New Auria user here, Sorry my first post is a problem report.

I'm experiencing the nearly exactly same issues as here with the iTrack solo.

Running a new 2017 ipad with 10.3.2

Cannot record audio, records for a 20 secs or so and then appears to be recording ok but on playback is see repetetive spikes on the waveform and audio sounds like a stuck record.

When playing back the built in Heartbeat project, will play ok in mixer view but sound drops out after about 20 secs in playback when looking at waveform view.

My iTrack works fine with Garageband, and other audio apps.

Also, i tried my Digitech Multifx RP255 and this doesn't work so well either, different problems though, glitches in sound, and at one point horrible full volume screeching that left my ears ringing for a while - not pleasant!

Is someone at Auria looking into this please?

Can anyone confirm a reasonably cheap USB interface that does work with new iPad + Auria.

Auria does look great and I'd really like to stick with it if I can get these issues sorted without spending a bunch of cash on new hardware.

Cheers,
Francer

It is the Wimpy power supply that can't seem to charge both the iPad 2017 and USB midi power. Look in your garage and see if you can find a 12 volt, Center positive that is equal to or stronger than 1500 milliamps.

Thanks for the reply, I do have a compatible 5v/2A supply but that didn't work either. To be honest I'm sceptical that a 12V supply would do the trick if a USB one were available, the iTrack runs off USB power, not from a centre positive style power supply.

It works fine with other apps, it's just Auria that doesn't work. I'm a software developer myself and whilst you should always keep an open mind when trying to resolve these issues, for me I strongly suspect it's an Auria bug/possible compatibility issue with the new iPad model.

Would be great if someone from Auria could respond to this, I would imagine the iTrack is pretty popular as an interface and more and more people will be moving to the new iPads so I can't be the only one.

Of course, if there are people already using this combination with no issues (new 2017 ipad, 10.3.2, iTrack Solo) please let me know and I'll look into my set up again.

We have multiple reported issues with the new (5th gen, 2017) iPad and Focusrite interfaces. We should have one of these iPads in our possession next week and Focusrite is also looking into the issue on their end.

We will report back shortly.

@Francer What is the model number of your iPad (Settings App> General> About> Model)?
