Ipad 4 and Apogee Mini Me

Post by willkollar » Wed Dec 12, 2012 3:27 pm

I recently got an Ipad 4 and the lightning USB camera adapter. I have read that I can use my Apogee Mini-Me usb audio interface but now luck trying to get it to be recognized by the Ipad. Anyone have any suggestions. I tried using it with a USB hub without luck.
Thanks

We haven't tested one here. It's possible it's not compatible. Has anyone else used on with an iPad?

It works but you have to plug the Mini-Me through a powered hub:

Mini-Me -> Powered USB hub -> CCK -> iPad

One thing to note is that some people report that some powered hubs work and some don't. I used a cheap $10 Belkin 4-port with my Mini-me and it works fine.

There's a thread on this board discussing the use of a certain 3rd party Chinese 30-pin hub (also a youtube video) that would in principle obviate the use of both the CCK and the powered hub for these kinds of low-power USB outputs but it turns out these hubs are not all created equal and many don't work properly. AFAIK no trusted source for these has been found.
