I’ve been using the AKAI AMX for quite a while and I’ve been very happy with it, especially because though it’s tiny it can do powerful features such as DVS.
In many of my use cases, I have tried using it with iPhones and iPads through the Lightning to USB Camera Kit. It worked especially well when used with the USB 3 Camera kit which also allows power delivery to the iOS device.
However, after recently testing this with an iPad Pro 2020 so through USB-C, I noticed it didn’t work at all, even with USB-C hub that provides power delivery.
There is no audio coming out from either the headphone out or the master out. When used a power delivery enabled USB-hub, I do get some heavily saturated but still very low level of audio from the master out.
All the Vu-meters appear to behave properly? The unit is mapped to Algoriddim Djay with LED feedback. I also tested inverting the audio master/monitoring outputs in the software.
Connecting back to a lightning iOS device or my computer, and the AMX behaves normally so it’s not like the unit became faulty. It still works very well.
Has anyone experienced anything similar with their iPad Pro 2018 or 2020 using USB-C ?
Is there a fix for that ? Maybe a power-management issue ?
