  1. Does it works between iPad Pro generation one and printer? By the way the video was so so so useful ❣️❣️❣️

  2. 6:57.

    Can you please define good to go? I can connect no problem. However, I'm limited on which synths I can record. Is there a universal app that will simply take the sounds from any synth and record it in the iPad/iPhone? (WhatYouPlayIsWhat'sRecorded?) if so, which apps and how? I have tried for months with no luck..however, I don't even use a DAW so not so much in the integration aspects (technically I get it…however I just need to understand the business logic). Thanks

  3. Is there actually anyone on YouTube who’s not trying to be Johnny Carson? Why are these people doing these 12 hour introductions, 15 hours of telling us they want to do a short video, another 33 hours of “here we go let’s get to it,” at some point they have to get to the point right? Do we need to see the entire musical instrument collection they’re mentioning, like a “keyboard?” Do we have to see the keyboard? Really? Can saying the word “keyboard” be enough? All that to realize this isn’t the information I needed. Can someone hold up a jack ass for me? Whew! I was afraid no one would know what I was talking about. Good thing we had one to hold up!!

  4. Hello There.
    I’ve watched some of the video but I have a few questions:
    Do you have to have a usb 3 lightning adapter?
    If so does it have to be from Apple or can I get it off amazon?
    Can I import files from my phone to the flash drive and then import them to share factory and my PS4 capture gallery?

  5. Thank you so much Pete! You explained everything very clearly and you helped me solving my problem. Thank you mate, keep going 💪🏽✨😘

  6. Does our usb interface or mixer have to be ios compatible ? I have an Audient interface , and a Yamaha mg10xu. Not that I use them together but I was wondering if Either of those would work ?

  7. Hi, I could not find Lightning to USB Camera Adapter v3 .. will the v2 work..? I am not worried about charging my Ipad because my audio interface can be powered by DC power..

  8. Just got one today. Hoping to use some MIDI drum pads and keyboards, as ive always preferred live recording but love the benefits of MIDI!

  9. A quick question: i just connected mi iPad 7 to audio interface M-Audio fasttrack 2 ,and to my keyboard Casio CT-X5000 with the usb camera cable through an usb hub. The problem comes when i connect the iPad, i start hearin’ a hiss… what could it be?

  10. Thanks for that. I’m upgrading from the dinosaur era desktop so all advice gratefully received – (and very happy to hear an Australian accent for once. )
    So – Question : I didn’t realise I can use my I pad Pro for recording until watching your vids. But – is it possible to somehow get the I-Pad screen onto a separate large monitor screen ?

  11. Would it not be easier (and cheaper) to use the cable supplied with your charger? It's USB on one end and Lightning on the other. Or would this not work for some weird, Apple-y reason?

  12. I got one of these with the power plug in, plugged in my mic, and turned on what I needed to in GarageBand and I saw that it was recognizing my voice but not actually recording do I need a powered usb hub??. It’s not working ☹️

  13. Hey peta , Please i live in mid east
    And i need this adapter so bad but
    We dont have it in our stores
    in my country how can
    I buy it online please help bro ,,,,, 👍
