New iPad Air 2 with 30 pin connectors

Post by supanorton » Sat Jan 31, 2015 3:29 pm

I did a search on this and came up empty. I have an Apogee Jam, iRig Midi, a 30 pin CCK, and a Focusrite 2i2. I'm currently on a 30 pin iPad 2. I'm assuming I can buy an Apple lightening to 30 pin adapter along with an Air 2 and all will work fine. Is my assumption correct? Thanks in advance.

I'm not using the exact same gear as you, but so far I've not had any problems.
So far works with Akai EIE (redface) & Griffin Studio Connect.

I bought the Apple 30 pin to lightning adapter, and also the same version with a short (about 6 inches long) cable. Both work, but the cable version has less issues because it's flexible and doesn't pull on the lightning connector, which occasionally would pull out due to too much weight with the non-cable version.
i.e. the original CCK attached to the 30-lightning adapter gets too heavy.

Thanks, Marty. I appreciate the tip on the cable version.
