Focusrite Scarlet 2i4 PROBLEMS!!!!

Post by markfrancombe » Tue Jan 17, 2017 4:04 am

Hi Im trying to get the above card to work with iPad Pro.
I know that its not a specifically designed iPad card, but...
I have routed the usb via a powered usb hub, via the Apple Connection Kit and into the iPad.

Im getting a HORRIBLE signal in the iPad.

Firstly its very low (im comparing this with the "direct signal" that I can achieve by panning the Direct knob on the interface.) which is nice and loud and clean sounding, Using this to monitor is useless to me as I will be adding effects "in app".

In addition it is on the verge of "breaking up" the whole time, not "nice" distortion, as the result of slight over saturation (that is still possible via over doing the input level knob a bit) but a real NASTY crunch.

I read on another post about installing some "iPad Patch", is that a thing with this interface or only on the biggie rack mount ones?

Can you suggest a solution?
