    Yes!

    I use it to connect a Akai LPK25 mini 25 key usb midi keyboard. Straight connection.

    My iPad Mini actually supplies power to this keyboard, but a larger one may need to be powered separately.

    Very sweet and helps make it worth the $30.

  • According to one user on another forum, it does support core midi and midi audio:

    "midi through the lightning port and the USB adapter is working as I hoped.

    I can confirm that connecting the MAudio UNO midi adapter via the lighting to USB cable works fine. All my synth apps like Alchemy, Magellan and Animoog are able to see my attached Roland A500 Pro keyboard through the midi ports to MAudio UNO to lightning connector on the iPad.

    Note, my keyboard also has a USB port on it that can connect directly to a PC, but since it draws power for the keyboard through the USB this method will not work with the new iPad. But that never did work even on my older iPad. I have to power the keyboard with an external power supply and use the midi adapter."
