Midi to lightning cable for NE3

Postby Jjhildy04 » 22 Jun 2020, 21:39

Can anyone recommend a midi to lightning din cable for NE3 to iPad? I’ve seen some where the midi cable is 8 pins, and the NE3 has a 5 pin midi output. Any help would be very appreciated, thanks!

To connect the NE3 to an iPad you have basically 2 ways

a) buy a Lightning to USB adapter (better if Apple official and with recharge port) + a Class Compliant MIDI USB interface (or cable, example Roland UM One)

b) buy an iPad specific MIDI Interface (or dock), for example https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irigmidi2/

Got this one for my Stage 3 and iPhone
Yamaha MDBT01 Bluetooth MIDI Adapter
Works great with Garageband e.g.
Kind regards,

Right! MIDI BT is actually a 3rd option (I forgot about that, although I have a MD-BT 01 myself :? :D )
