I’m trying to connect my iPad Pro 12.9 inch 2017 to the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. Here are my connections:

1. iPad to CCK via lightning port.
2. USB cable from CCK to Belkin 7-port USB power hub.
3. Scarlett 2i2 to Belkin 7-port USB power hub via USB cable.
4. Belkin 7-port USB power hub plugged into surge protector that’s connected to a working outlet.
5. Scarlett has two speaker monitors connected to the back of it that work completely fine when I have the Scarlett connected to the iMac.

When I go into Auria Pro to play a project it simply doesn’t work. Auria still plays off my iPad speakers. I also tried playing music using the default Apple Music app and that doesn’t work either.

The lights on the Scarlett flash when I plug it into the power hub but the green light doesn’t st6ay on like when I plug it into my iMac to use with Logic Pro. However, if I push the 48V button it will remain red so that means that it is getting power.

I’ve read every post about connecting the iPad to the Scarlett 2i2, but I’m not sure if it works with the 2017 iPad Pro 12.9 inch.

I’ve run out of ideas! Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m thinking about just buying an MFi audio interface off the Wavemachines Labs list if I can’t get the Scarlett 2i2 to work.

Thanks!

One thing you can try is to get the newer Apple USB3 CCK (https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MK0W ... ra-adapter)
You should then be able to get rid of the USB Powered hub and instead plug the extra lightning cable into the CCK and USB wall outlet.

Yay that worked! I got the “Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter” that has one Lightning male end that connects directly into the iPad, one female USB port that the Scarlett 2i2 plugs directly into, and one Lightning female port that should be connected to a USB wall charger via a Lightning to USB cable.

Thanks!

Just to make sure, it’s 2i2 Gen 2 you’re discussing? I can’t get it to work with my iPad Air 2 and bought an expensive power hub, and it turned out that it couldn’t support the interface.
