If I plug this controller through the USB MIDI ...

If I plug this controller through the USB MIDI Input of my Apogee Duet for iPad & Mac, and connect the interface to an iPad Air 2 through lightning cable, would I be able to play the virtual instruments inside an iPad DAW (like, for instance Cubasis)? Just as a MIDI Keyboard, I don’t mind the other functions.
Asked by: Andrés
We have not tested that configuration, but probably not. A better controller is the IK Multimedia iRig Keys Pro 37, which is designed to work with lightning to iOs devices. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1004505-REG/ik_multimedia_ip_irig_keyspro_in_irig_keys_pro_37_key.html
