Trigger Finger Pro with iPad Air 2, Alesis iO Dock II or iPad Camera Connection Kit

I am considering other ways to create drum parts outside of Auria which I am running on my iPad Air 2. I also have the Alesis iO Dock II and the Camera Connection Kit.

The Trigger Finger Pro looks interesting, but with so many options on the market, and the fact that I am still learning about DAW's, (in my case Auria), I am concerned about the work flow if using the Trigger Finger Pro.

I assume that I would be able to connect it directly in some way to the iPad and program drum parts directly into Auria, correct?

Has anyone any experience using this controller with an iPad, and what are the pros and cons of using it with my setup?

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Trigger Finger Pro is not technically supported for use with an iPad. It is class-compliant so there is a chance it will work, but the included software will not be available for iOS.

    So, in the end you may be able to get it running as a basic MIDI controller and sequencer, which is probably all you need anyway but I wouldn't be able to guarantee it would connect properly via USB.

    You may even want to just run the MIDI Out of the Trigger Finger into the MIDI in on the IO Dock instead of USB. That would require a power supply for the TFP but it would work to just get MIDI into the iPad and Auria software. I would plan for that route if anything.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions!
