komplete kontrol a25 ipad

Hello fellow IosIans

I have a thought... would the A25 work with an ipad? with the camera thingy and a powered hub? Considering that's native instruments i doubt it, but we never know...

  • Hello partners

    Watch this video where you will see how it is connected ... I hope it is your help.

    You will have to use an Apple adapter and a USB cable with Midi.

    P.D: I imagine that the different versions and models of Komplete Kontrol ... will be valid as Midi controllers ... together with your iPad.

    Greetings to Tod @ s

  • Thank you! but.. the A series doesn't have midi :/

    No Midi ?!?

    How do you think this keyboard will communicate with all the NI Stuff?
    Kontrol A can control Logic ProX,Ableton Live, Garage Band, Cubase, Nuendo...

    So I think no problem with the iPad. 😎

    I use a Kontrol S. Everything works also with an iPad!

    I think the main differences to the Kontrol S series are no displays, a different keyboard and no 5-pin Midi ports.

    I know how to connect things... i also know that a midi keyboard as midi but i also know that maschine for example doesn't work with the ipad... do you get what im saying?

    I just want to know if the A series keyboard is compatible with the ipad, considering native instruments ways

    I’ve had no issues with my S61 connected to my iPad with the standard CCK. When it’s not connected / tethered to the desktop and their Komplete Kontrol software it functions as a normal MIDI controller. You just don’t get all of the bells and whistles the software provides like the arp, chord and key mode etc. I can’t image any of this is different with the A Series.

    You bet. If you end up getting an A Series do report back with your experiences with it overall. I’m interested in replacing my aging S61, but I’m not yet sure the A Series is the way to go.

    It works like a charm :)

    Cool!
    I tried an A61 today in a store and I REALLY like the keyboard action!
    Do the encoders work like they should on the iPad?
