iPad air 2 and focusrite 18i20 with Auria?

Post by Toni » Tue Jan 20, 2015 2:34 am

Hi!
I´d like to know if someone is using focusrite 18i20, Auria and iPad air 2 (Ios8) which have this lightning port.
I was going to buy focusrite 18i20, but local dealer claimed that only 30 pin (old) connector iPads are working.
Has anybody got this combination working and how?
Regards, Toni

Hi everybody!
I bought today Scarlett 18i20 and everything works amazingly!
First I installed 18i20 to my PC laptop. Scarlet Mixcontrol open and updating firmware.
First time it failed, but I noticed some advices from other forum that Scarlett has to be switched on and off a couple of times and after that it´s capable of installing new firmware and that was how I succeeded :)
I changed sample rate from Mixcontrol to 48kHz and saved to firmware.
Then I switched Scarlett off and back on and connected it to iPad Air 2 with lightning cable to usb (official Apple Camera connection kit) and without any powered hub.
Then I opened Auria and selected new project and sample rate to 48kHz and chose 8 channel.
I opened input Matrix and checked that everything was ready to go!
8 channel straight ready to record!
Nothing to say more! Too easy ;)
Regards, Toni
