Code 61 for use with Ipad

Hi. Just bought code 61, and I'm completely new to midi keyboards. I'm planning to use this one for live performances, mainly on church or for school concerts. And I really want portability so I'm planning to use it with an ipad. Thanks! Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Code series is not supported for use with iPhone or iPad, so I cannot guarantee that will work.

    If you would like to try it out, iOS users would typically use an Apple Camera Connection Kit and a powered USB hub to connect the keyboard to the ipad. The powered hub would help power the keyboard because phones and ipads are never very good at this.

    I hope this helps!

    For all users with code series and iPad, I confirm that works Ok, and with the iPhone too.
    You need a 9v 1A power adapter for the code, a printer cable like comes with the code in box,a USB unpowered hub and a apple camera connection kit.
    I use a little Trust USB unpowered with cable and works ok.

    Connect the printer cable to the code, and the USB plug to one port of the USB hub, and the USB from the hub to Apple camera connection.Of course you need the power adapter, the code has many pads with light and need this power.

    I check with Korg module, sampletank, CMP grand piano,Korg Im1, Neo soul keys, Isymphonic orchestra, Sunrizer, Galileo organ... And all app are ok.

    With the iPhone and same combination that's ok too

  • I’m thankful
    Great! Thanks Miguel.
    Just posted the same problem and question on the Community forum.It NOW works!
    How come you need the USB hub also?
    Another question relating to this application.
    How can you control the Leslie/Rotary speaker speed control using the Code 61 by mod wheel or some other way?
    Your advice would be most appreciated.
    Regards

  • You need the USB hub umpowered with the power adapter too. I connect the cable with the apple camera connection without the USB hub and don't work.
    What app do you refer? Korg module? Galileo organ?
    In Galileo organ it's simple.
    You must go to PREFS BUTTON, MIDI MAPS, LEARN, search the Leslie control, select, move the mod wheel in the keyboard, and save the map control.

    You can assign all you need, to buttons,sliders,pads, etc.....

  • I'm having no luck connecting my Code 61 to my iPad 3. I'm powering the keyboard with a power adapter. Even though the adapter only outputs 540mA at 9V (the Code supposedly requires 1A), the Code's LEDs and display light up brighter than when powered over USB). When plugging in my unpowered USB 3 hub (via the camera connection kit), the iPad complains "Cannot Use Device - IOUSBHostDevice: The connected device requires too much power." The LED on the hub remains lit however.

    Perhaps this will only work with USB 2 hubs? Mine is a StarTech Portable 4 Port SuperSpeed Mini USB 3.0 Hub. I also tried with a TeckNet HU043 USB 3.0 3-Port Hub with Ethernet Adapter, but this also draws too much power. This is less of a surprise due to the presence of the ethernet adapter. The LED on this hub is on for a very short time after plugging it in.

    Did you get warnings about the hub using too much power?

    I'll see if can lend a USB 2 hub (powered or unpowered) and test with that.
