Audio midi interface recommendations.
I am looking for recommendations from this group for using the iPad Air 3 at our weekly jam session. Currently I am usually bringing a Roland a Fantom X6 plugged into an amp. I am new to integrating the iPad into a live setting. So far just using GarageBand on the iPad (will add more apps). I have an old non powered UM 1 SX USM midi interface to the camera connector into the iPad. Audio out to a tube pre -> amp. All works fine for about 1 hour then no sound. I’ve used the search function here and seems that I need a powered USB hub and or an audio midi interface. The Fantom does not send midi data over USB so the need to use midi cables and the UM 1.
I’ve just ordered new cables with mono 1/4” plugs to replace my old ones that have 1/4” stereo plugs. At times I’ve taken a Korg Radias, Prophet 08 or Juno 60 to these jams.
Once I get the interfaces worked out I’ll purchase AUM, Audiobus, Galileo, Heavy Brass, ISymphonic , SWAM when available. I also intend to pickup a Roli Rise as a 2nd controller and later purchase either a Mojo 61or Viscount Legend Solo to use as the main controller.
My plan is to bring the clonewheel + Roli and use the iPad for these jams for lightweight simplicity. Looking forward to your advice. .
