Yes, you can connect the Reloop Buddy and a 2nd audio interface, but the setup will become non-travel-friendly. You’ll need to use multiple devices, multiple power supplies and different wires to get it working.
To connect the additional audio interface you’ll need:
a powered USB Hub (to plug-in both the Reloop Buddy + audio interface)
an Apple Camera Connection USB adapter (for lightning port iPads)
** in addition you’ll need the assorted power supplies and cables to get it all working.
I’ve been using latest IPad Pro w/ Djay Pro + Mixtour + Audient ID44 (external sound card) all connected with usb-c powered hub for a while. I love the fact I can route to an external higher quality sound card (sorry no offence but the Mixtour one is pretty shit, as you might expect at that cost).
Anyway, I recently purchased a Reloop Buddy assuming I would be able to do the same thing but oh no, this has turned in to cable conundrum that’s been driving me crazy.
I have tried all variables with both the existing powered usb hi. I have been using for the Mixtour set up but also swapping that out with the apple usbc dongle adaptor.
Anyway, bottom line is I can only get the Reloop buddy working when I connect the iPad up to the Buddy’s usb-a to usb-c connector.
Obviously doing this forces me to use the onboard Buddy sound card and rca outs which for me is a total no-go and deal breaker.
Can anyone suggest any other options? It’s driving me nuts.
Yeah I had to do the same thing with the Mixtour - in that djay only recognises the last sound card that is plugged in.
The issue I’m having is that the controller just doesn’t come alive unless I connect it straight into the iPad.
And just to make sure I’m not doing this wrong… I’m connecting the usb-b port into a power source. And for the usb-a I’m connecting that into the iPad Pro - is this correct?
If so, then as I mentioned the only way the buddy wakes up is by connecting directly to iPad and also vice versa - it’s the only way DJay is seeing Buddy. Using both apple’s usbc multi port adaptor doesn’t work (and I’ve got two and tried both without success) and also using my usb-c powered hub also nothing.
Any other ideas gratefully welcomed. I really want this thing to work but it’s gotta be with an external sound card.
