However, I think they should have called it the i-junk MIDI. The device is shakey at best when plugged into an iPad/iPad2. It doesn't make a solid "locked in" connection. If you move the ipad in the slightest way that causes the cords to move around, the iRig MIDI moves enough out of place that it loses the MIDI connection. Also, the provided USB-micro cable that is supposedly used to charge the device is smaller than my pinky finger. So that makes it nearly impossible to plug it into anything. Once you've figured out a way to finagle your setup so you can plug it in, all of my iOS devices (iphone/ iPad) say "NOT CHARGING". So after all that, it doesn't even work. I tried it plugged into a USB port on my computer and also with using the usb/AC adapter that comes with the iPad. I then tried a different, longer USB-micro cable. Still Nothing.

  • I-junk indeed

    1.0 out of 5 stars

    it takes a lot of patience to get the connector to take a solid connection to an iPad or anything else. For the first hour I thoug it takes a lot of patience to get the connector to take a solid connection to an iPad or anything else. For the first hour I thought the device was defective, it worked its just poorly constructed and the design is very cheap. Tight balancing act to keep the connector turned on with all the wires hanging out. This will cause you a lot of frustration when there is slight movement and the irig connection is lost. I sent it back.

It works. However, it doesn't make a solid connection. I use electrical tape to secure it in. Also has trouble charging using any cables longer than the included one (which is like 6 inches long), so it needs to be charged before you start playing. I blame the not charging issue on Apple's hardware though. You should be able to use any USB 2.0 compliant cable, but for some reason it wants something more..

However the secret apparently is to have it plugged into a power adaptor. I use one of those micro usb connectors plugged into an ipod power supply or the adaptor for my irig mix works. Hope this helps someone!!

    I bought the iRig MIDI interface directly from an Apple retail store after reading all the reviews. The most common complaint was I bought the iRig MIDI interface directly from an Apple retail store after reading all the reviews. The most common complaint was its flaky connection to the iPad. I agree. I solved that by using a $16.99 30-pin 4-foot "Charge and Audio" extension cable purchased elsewhere (Amazon) (because Apple unfortunately doesn't sell one at this writing - I asked). The extension cable has the "old" style male end that includes latching ears so it firmly locks into the iPad's dock connector. Inadvertent disconnection is eliminated. Good little device, does what it's supposed to do, and I'm happy with it,

Simply, the cheap device loose connection, i mean i can't play more than then seconds, then loose comnection you must tu unplg, re plug and lot of times nothing happens again. Ibought it just for the good idea of usb power and the midi, but doesn twork at all. . I have ipad camera connector too, and it works perfect, yes not real midi, not auxiliary power but it works perfect. I returned my irig midi to the store. Totally disappointed.
