iPad 4 and Roland A-88

Postby snab » 07:45, 22 March 2014

I am not sure if it's the right forum for this problem:
I just got the Roland A-88 midi keyboard - very nice.
I want to connect it to my iPad 4 (lightning), got the lightning to usb camera adaptor, which is supposed to work.
Unfortunately, iPad doesn't recognize the A-88, or rather, says this usb device is not supported (??)

(BTW, connecting a cheap evolution e-keys midi keyboard to iPad 4 works like a charm...)

Any suggestions how to solve the problem much appreciated.

Welcome to the clan, snag.

I don't have an A-88, but I tried USB between a Jupiter-80 and iPad with lighting connector and a lightning to USB converter. Seems to just work without any special settings. So don't know what the problem might be, but looks like it should work. Don't give up.

Good Luck,
