SSL Connex is not officially supported on iOS or Android, however, SSL Connex is a class compliant USB audio interface and should work with any device that supports class compliant devices. Additional cables/adaptor kits and an external power source may also be required to connect SSL Connex to iOS/Android devices.
To connect to a Lightning-based* iPad you may need the following:
- The supplied USB cable
- Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter
- A powered USB hub (unlike a computer, an iPad does not supply power) - this hub must be capable of delivering 5V and more than 0.5A
Some newer iPads are USB-C instead of Lightning. In that case, the camera adapter may not apply
Connect in the following order:
- SSL to USB hub.
- USB hub to the Apple camera adaptor.
- iPad power to Apple camera adaptor.
- Camera adaptor to iPad.
*We have tested a direct connection to an iPad Pro 2020 and successfully recorded audio into Garageband. As such we expect iPad models that support reverse charging with a USB-C connector to work with Connex.
