Using IRig MIDI 2 on iPad Pro

Postby Midimonster » Sat Jun 13, 2020 1:19 am

I recently upgraded to an iPad Pro and of course I soon realised that I can no longer use my IRig MIDI 2 due to connector incompatibility. Does anybody have any experience of connecting an IRig MIDI 2 to the USB-C of the iPad Pro please? I looked at using an adaptor but apparently they only work for charging. Last time I changed my IPad I had to replace the IRig 1 unit as it only connected to the 30 pin connector. I could order a replacement cable from IK Mulimedia in Italy for €36.59 (£33) which is half the cost of the whole rig and seems a bit of a rip off to me.
Thanks.

Bummer. Proprietary connectors. I ran into that with my iConnectivity 4, but at least the cable was only 1/10th the cost of the device. I have a couple 2nd gen iPad pros so I’m not looking to upgrade any time soon, but I’ll follow this thread with interest. Good luck.

Looks like I’ll have to make up my own replacement cable for less than a fiver, can’t be too difficult.
