Connecting Scaler 2 on ipad to hardware?


I have an MPC key 61 and a hydrasynth, and I also have scaler 2 on my ipad. How do I connect my ipad to both keyboards (not at the same time) so I can play chords from my ipad using scaler ios?

You can either use the Apple iPad camera connection kit, which is basically an adapter to connect iPad to USB based MIDI hub. Or I have been using a more sophisticated setup,which also transfers the sound from iPad digitally over the same interface….iConnect MIDI 2

Hey, thanks for the reply. I have the latest iPad Pro which is USB C. It looks like the camera connection kit is the older Apple plug style correct? Can I just use a USB C to USB A connection?

You’re right. I have an older one with Lightning connector, which still required the adapter. More power to you if you have a modern USB based model. That should make it easier indeed.

So I bought a usb C to USB A cord and connected my hydra synth. scaler app recognizes the device and when I play keys on my hyrdasynth it shows them in scaler, but when I press something from scaler, it does not trigger anything on the hydra synth. Any thoughts?

Did you get this to work?

I want to play scaler 2 iPad into studio one and have the full features of scaler 2 in studio one not just the Audio output of the iPad

Any ideas @james ?
Do I need to buy the thing listed above?
