New iPad Pros 2018 look like :-) USB-C heaven (-: for musicians
OK, I'm tired of posting info on that "USB-C hell" thread (no offense to the OP) but I wanted to keep the topic going. Its an important discussion, but I think it deserves a more positive outlook ;-)
I honestly think USB-C is going to be amazing. We've got a few reports from new owners that USB-C is working well. I'd love to see people post screenshots with details of what is working. I don't have a 2018 iPad Pro... yet. But here's my dream setup:
This large, bulky hub can just sit permanently on my studio desk with:
- 5 USB devices (4 MIDI + audio interface) .
- plus ethernet for fast transfers from my NAS files.
- plus external monitor when I'm working on video/photo.
- plus 80 watt power to charge iPad and power all the peripherals
At $100 its not any more expensive than the lightning dongle when I want USB + the HDMI dongle when I want external monitor + different charging situations, USB hubs, etc.
Post pics below if you have USB-C working its magic on your new iPad Pro
