  • Need an audio / MIDI interface for your iOS device?

    If so, then you should check out my review of Korg's plugKEY. Depending on what your needs are, it might be perfect for you...

    If you have any questions or comments about the review, this is the place for them!

    Phil, did you test this on Auria?

    Did you test it with an 2017 iPad Pro?

    This is exactly what I need to get back to recording.
    But there have been some issues with 2017 iPad Pros & Auria.

      No, but if it has a Lightning port, this should work fine with your iPad.

      But please note that the plugKEY just an audio OUT / MIDI IN interface - there is no MIDI out, and no audio input on the Korg. Works great if you're trying to send MIDI from your DAW running on another computer to drive a virtual instrument running on your iPad. For DAW use with a program like Auria, I suspect you'd want a more fully-featured Audio / MIDI interface, with both MIDI in and out, as well as audio inputs so you can record audio... unfortunately, the plugKEY doesn't support that.

        That could help turn an iPad into a stage rig.

        MIDI IN (from a piano for example) and balanced line out to feed monitors/FOH and a power supply.

        I have a Yamaha MFC10 programable MIDI foot controller that has a MIDI mixer built in - it combines the MIDI input with the foot controller functions and sends them both out the MIDI OUT jack.

        I see great possibilities.

        Thanks for the review Phil.
        As a human being, you come with the whole range of inner possibilities
        from the deepest hell to the highest states.

        It is up to you which one you choose to explore
        .
