Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video The Mobile Keys controllers from Line 6, part of iPad Music Production: Inputs Mics and MIDI.
When I first started getting into MIDI, I didn't know what kind of MIDI keyboard to get. …There were just so many selections out there and today, the selection is even larger. …And if you've been watching the previous movie in this chapter, you've probably noticed that …connecting a MIDI controller to your iPad usually involves a couple of accessories and …a spaghetti tangle of cables. …So if you are looking for something portable that avoids having to use all those additional …accessories, you definitely want to check out the MobileKey series from Line 6. …It comes in both a 25-key and a 49-key version, and this is aimed squarely at the mobile market.…
If you look on the back of this keyboard--and this is identical on both keyboards--you can …see on the back here there is a port labeled Mobile. And the way this works is you just …take the included cable, run one end into the keyboard, run the other end into your …iPad, and that's pretty much it. …There is nothing more to do. You don't need additional power. …
