Can I use my bus powered Scarlett with an iPad?

Applies to: Scarlett Solo, 2i2, 2i4, 4i4

 The Scarletts are class compliant audio interfaces. This means that it can use the core audio driver built into iOS. While not officially tested or supported, we would expect the Scarletts to work with an iPad.

In addition to the included USB cable, in order to connect your Scarlett to an iPad, you will need:

You should connect the devices in the following order:

  1. Scarlett to powered USB hub via USB
  2. USB hub to official camera adapter via USB
  3. Camera adapter to iPad

Once connected, you should be able to use your 2i2 as an output and input device for your iPad.

Please note that the above instructions apply only to iPad models that feature a lightning connector.
