Using a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (& Solo) with an iPad or iPhone


The strictly controlled environment of iOS and Apple mobile devices makes it hard to use them with regular USB audio interface, however it's possible. Unfortunately, it seems there is no magic bullet and workarounds are on a per-device basis. I managed to make my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 work with my iPad 4 and iPod Touch 5. The 2i2 being quite a popular interface, I hope this guide can help someone out there.


UPDATE 02/01/15: this tutorial also works with the Scarlett Solo. Just be aware that the Solo does not have combo XLR inputs so the Mic input will show as Mono 1 and Line/Instrument input as Mono 2. If you're using the Scarlett Solo to record line or instruments, you need to use an app that lets you choose inputs.

DISCLAIMER: this tutorial is to be considered a "hack" and isn't officially supported by Focusrite. The author of this tutorial won't be held responsible for any potential damage or harm. Use at your own risk.

The Scarlett 2i2 is actually recognized by iDevices but does not work connected directly through a camera connection kit. iDevices display a message saying the Scarlett 2i2 isn't compatible as it requires too much power. The problem with this is that the 2i2 is powered by its USB connection. What you need to do is provide an external source of power to the USB plug of the 2i2 while still allowing data to go in and come out of the same plug. This was the most challenging issue to overcome, but here's how to do it.




What you will need


1. Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter ($15) This will be the bridge between USB and lightning. The older, non-lightning version of this may similarly work for older devices but I haven't tried

2. Jackery Bar Battery Pack (6000 mAh recommended) ($30) This will allow you to power the Scarlett 2i2. I chose this brand and type after much research. It's simply the best company for this type of product. I've had a couple of these for a while and I still haven't been disappointed


(UPDATE 12/29/15: you don't have to use a portable source of power. An AC powered USB hub will also work. I recently got this RAVPOWER Charger and it works great. If you do use a wall charger, just make sure it can provide enough juice to power the 2i2.)

3. A USB 2-Port USB Hub Splitter ($10) For some reason, the workaround should work without this but it doesn't. If you don't use this, you'll get a warning message saying the "device uses too much power".

4. This specific USB Y Cable ($7) This is sort of the key piece that ties everything together
and of course, your iDevice and 2i2.




How to put everything together


How to use a Focusrote Scarlett 2i2 with an iPad, iPhone, iPod
Click for larger image


1. Plug the USB-B end of the Y-cable (the square one) into the 2i2


2. Plug the red end of the Y-cable into the Jackery bar


3. Plug the black end of the Y-cable into the USB Hub Splitter


4. Connect the USB Hub Splitter to the Camera Connection Kit



5. IMPORTANT! Push the switch on the Jackery Bar once. The Jackery LED charge meter should light up and the 2i2 halo indicator either/or USB power LED should indicate it has power

6. Once these lights seem to have settle, plug the lightning end of the Camera Connection kit to your iDevice. The 2i2 halo indicators should flash and you should be ready to record.


You can use both channels, monitoring and phantom power on the 2i2. On rare occasions, the connection will not work right away but once it's been made, the transfer of data is reliable. The 2i2 will "sleep" when your iDevice auto-locks. When you unlock your iDevice, it will power up again EXCEPT if you're recording. In this case, the connection will remain even if your iDevice auto-locks.




Extras


I use THIS to set my iPad 4 (may not be compatible with iPad Air) on a mic stand and it works fairly well for the price you pay. The allen screw in the center of the plastic holder has a tendency to come undone easily after several adjustments but you could easier keep an allen key handy and check whether it's tight or not regularly or use some Loctite. I use THIS for my iPod Touch.


Let me know how this works for you!

      1. You're welcome! The 2i2 wasn't built with iOS compatibility in mind. Focusrite has the iTrack Solo for that but it only has 1 mic preamp.

      1. Hi Ari., I just tried with my desktop computer and it works. If you use the Y cable it "should" work with your laptop however keep in mind that it may be unsafe and damage your 2i2. I would recommend using the Jackery Bar as it is is safe in my experience (still, use at your own risk). However computer specifications are so different that I can't recommend the laptop method.

        Delete
      2. But isn't the interface designed to be charged via computer in the first place? Why would you consider this unsafe?

        Delete
      3. I'm just saying that I haven't tried the method so I can't confirm whether it is safe or not.

    3. I'm trying to run AudioTools app on my ipad for RTA and FFT and some other acoustic analysis tools. Could I use a 3.5amp powered hub instead of the battery pack? You definitely need the 2-port usb hub splitter? Any specific kind/brand? Thanks Jazz VP

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. A powered USB hub would probably work, just like it did when I tried with my desktop computer, however I don't have one so I can't confirm, sorry. 3.5A should be enough power. The Jackery Bar I've been using generates 2.1A and it works great.

        As for the 2-port USB hub splitter, I actually tried without it again recently because it just doesn't make sense that you would need one but you do; at least with the battery pack. I can't really recommend another brand than the one I have listed in the article as it's the only one I've tried because it worked great right out of the box and is reliable.

    4. I´m thinking about to use an iphone 6+ or an ipad to put ios and Focusrite Interface together. But... Is this combination also really working with a iphone 5 or 6?
      Because you cannot connect the iphone via Connection camera kit. Or...?
      Thanx a lot for answer... Dirk

      1. It worked when I was using it with an iPod Touch 5 on iOS 7 and the camera connection kit isn't supposed to work with the iPod Touch either. In our case, we're using it merely as a USB adapter, power being provided by an external battery pack.

        So I'm thinking it should work with an iPhone 5 or 6 but, again, I haven't tested. Apple loves to tweak things between iDevices iterations and iOS versions.

        If you do try could you please report back and let us know whether it works or not? Thanks.

    5. Oh, man. I'm so annoyed.
      I live in Brazil and things here are relatively expensive, I paid double the price you paid for this things there, including Scarlett 2i2 :/
      But the investment would be worth it if the final result was good. The problem is that I'm trying to use an iPad air and when I put things together the iPad gives me the following message "Cannot Use Device. Scarlett 2i2 USB: The connected device is not supported.". So I understand that the problem is not in the cables I used to make the connections, but the incompatibility between the iOS 8.3 and the 2i2 software, right?
      Please, could you help me? Are there any workarounds? Have anybody succesfully used it with this version of iOS? Could this work with some kind of jailbreak?
      Sorry for the bad english. I hope you can help me!
      Thanks!

      1. I don't have an iPad Air but the method works with my iPhone 5S on iOS 8.3 so the problem isn't incompatibility with the OS's version. Are you sure you're plugging everything correctly? Are you using the USB hub splitter? Are you using the Jackery bar or another battery pack? Maybe it doesn't generate enough power.

        Delete
    6. Thanks, man! it worked! Altough the message said it was not compatible, just by changing the source of power it started running!

      1. Awesome, glad it's working. When iOS says the "device is not supported", in our case it means the 2i2 requires more power than the iPad or iPhone can provide. Which is why we use an external battery.

    8. My Workaround: I use a cheap powered USB hub. Plugin the iPad via CameraConnector (use the square connector on the Hub). Now you can use the USB Ports on the Hub for the Focusrite and (!) a Midi Keybord e.g. Akai MPK mini. Works great!

    9. hello there! i would like to consult some things regarding to this matter.
      i tried the steps explained above, but instead of using battery pack, i used an adapter that connects directly to electricity (adapter for cellphone). the focusrite light indicator went on but the voice couldn't enter the ipad, it made some noise from the earphone instead. do you think it was because of the adapter? does it need to be using battery pack only? i used the old ipad 1 with ios 5.1 btw. thank you very much! and sorry for my bad english.

      1. No it should work connected directly to a power outlet. I recently tried and it worked flawlessly. My guess would be that an iPad 1 and iOS 5.1 are the issue here. The hardware probably isn't supported by the odler hardware and OS version.

    10. Hi. I have a Scarlett 2i2 and it used to work perfectly with my iPad 2, but I've tried it with my new iPad Air 2 and it says 'device not compatible'. I'm using a camera connection kit, with the 2i2 going into a powered USB hub (same as with the iPad 2). A Kork nancontrol on the same system is working OK. I'm on ios 9.02, by the way. Any ideas? Thanks.

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. Hey there! Well, I'm not using iOS 9, but were you using iOS 7 or earlier on your iPad 2 by any chance? There was a change in how iOS handles powered devices with was introduced with iOS 8 I believe.

        Just to make sure, you're using a USB Y cable, correct? One end powers the 2i2, the other transmits data. Are you also using a USB hub splitter as shown in the diagram in the article? With this hack, if you're not using the USB hub splitter between the Y cable and camera connection kit, iOS will show the "device not compatible" message. I know it doesn't make a lot of sense, but that's the way it is. The hub splitter probably "disguises" the 2i2. At least that would be my guess.

        Delete
      2. Hi. Thanks for the reply. Well, I'll be honest - no, I'm not using the setup you describe. I've got a powered USB hub, which the 2i2 is going into, then the USB hub going into the CCK. Like I say, a NanoKontrol going into the same USB hub works OK. BUT - on the old iPad, I was running ios 9 too and they both worked. Also, I have to confess that the CCK is a cheapo, non-Apple thing (but it does work - I mean, like I say, the NanoKontrol works, plus it reads SD cards and doesn't give the 'non-Apple device' warning). Finally, I think I will be most likely using mains to power it all - I do have a powerbank though. So I guess most iPhone charger-type wall plugs would work. Anyway, with all that said, it looks like I'll need one of those splitter cables, at the very least, right? And will I def. need the 2 port splitter?

        Delete
      3. Hey Sam. All I can say is that the method described in the article works. Unfortunately I can't really test other setups if I don't have similar equipment. So it's a bit delicate to help out with a possible solution.

        With this said, the reason why the NanoKontrol works may be because it uses way less power (less than 100 mA according to Korg's website) than the 2i2, with its two audio channels, phantom power, audio converter, headphone amp and so on.

        I don't see why the powered USB hub should not work but the 2 port splitter is essential yeah. Another user asked about it in this comment section, and I double checked at that time to make sure - as, again, it doesn't make much sense - and you definitely need it.

      4. Cool, thanks. Looks like I'll have to get those cables! Cheers.

        Delete
    11. OK bought all the cables. Here's what i don't understand: Usually my 2i2 is connected to my Macbook pro through the USB 2.0 cable that comes with the 2i2. That way I can select, play and record over music from my computer's iTunes library directly into the Scarlett and control all through Ableton showing up on my computer screen. I don't see a way to do this now because the USB 2.0 input on the 2i2 is now unavailable because it is connected to the Jackery and camera adapter with no way to have the 2i2 connected to my computer and its iTunes Library. Please advise. Thanks!

      1. I'm not sure what you're trying to do. You don't need the cable, camera adapter and Jackery to connect to your computer. These are meant to be used with an iPhone or iPad. So if you want to play and record over music, you'll have to first import it onto your iPad and use something like the GarageBand app, Cubasis, or similar apps. Ableton is not available on the iPad unfortunately.

    12. So I just ordered the adapters and can't wait to try it out. What apps is this compatible with?

      1. Any DAW that recognizes different outputs and inputs. So apps like Cubasis (which I use), Auria, maybe GarageBand. If you have AudioBus, things start to get really interesting.

      2. pardon my ignorance, but can you use the irig2 in the ipad which has a 1/4" input and run a 1/4" guitar cable out of the 2i2 into the irig/ipad?

      3. I suppose you could, but why? Why not plug the guitar directly into the 212?

      4. I was thinking guitar into 212, 1/4" guitar chord out of 212 (one of the monitor outs) into the irig 2 that is plugged into the ipad with a 1/4" input? or is that totally wrong?

    13. So...Eventually I got it all working. I'm adding this comment as a bit of extra information for anyone trying to do this:

      I'm using an iPad Air 2 running iOS 9.1, genuine Apple CCK, plus the Y-cable and a 2 port USB hub (as per the article). For power, I'm using a mains-powered charger adapter.

      What I discovered is that for this to work, you'll need a GENUINE Apple Camera Connection Kit. I bought a cheapo generic one from Amazon, and while it worked for reading SD cards and even directly connecting my Nikon DSLR, and also not giving an MFI warning, it has something (I don't know what) missing from it's electronics that allows it to be used for an audio interface.

      Secondly, I discovered that I had to reboot my iPad to make it work. Spent quite a while beforehand wondering why it wasn't. After that, it was all dandy and I can also confirm that when you use a powered USB hub last in the chain (before the CCK, obviously), you can also use a USB midi device (Korg Nanokontrol 2 in my case) quite happily alongside it.

      Lastly, though, something a bit strange is happening - if I leave it all connected and idle, even with no apps open or in the background, it will automatically 're-connect' with the 2i2 every five minutes or so, causing the halo lights on knobs of the 2i2 to light up and the audio clicks that happen when the 2i2 powers up. This is a slight problem for me, as these clicks are not good for speakers when the volume is up - I try to make a habit of killing the volume when powering up manually. Not sure why it does this and whether it's normal. It didn't used to happen with my old iPad 2 setup (but then again, I didn't need the Y-cable or 2 port hub workaround either).

      1. Thanks for the follow-up comment Sam; very helpful.

        As for the reconnection problem, I've been having the same issue unless there's an app using the audio interface.

        Officially, only audio devices and interfaces powered by the iDevice itself are supported I think, so my guess would be that the reconnecting is actually iOS tring to put the 2i2 in sleep mode to save battery, but as it is powered externally with this hack, the 2i2 instantly reconnects.

        Delete
      2. Glad I'm not the only one with the reconnecting issue. I also really can't see why the 2-port hub thing works - but it does and it is indeed essential. Can't see why it doesn't work with my 4-port powered USB hub. Strange...

        Delete
      3. "I also really can't see why the 2-port hub thing works - but it does and it is indeed essential." I know, I don't understand it either.

      No USB Y cable required. 'a' is a 5V battery pack I put together. 'b' is a cheapo USB hub/splitter. 'c' is a "piston power" battery that can also power the system. 'd' is a 5V 2.1A USB wall charger that can also power the system. Finally, 'e' is a USB to coaxial cable that works with 'c', 'd' or with the USB port on your computer. The Onkyo HF Player software says I'm getting PCM out up to 96kHz and the sound is magnificent. Battery power sounds especially nice - better than getting it from the wall or from a computer. Thank you for inspiring me to play with this!

      6. Greeting, i haven't use the splitter. I use the original apple charger. Also using the apps call "impact" from forcusrite, and "wirecast" for live recording (as I saw some people use the same Apple CCK with Shure x2u and it works fine)

        But I think the power connection is the main problem rather than the apps recognize issue (ant the apps I also seeking advice from u guys as a pro . Bcoz, the 48v light is keep turning on when I plug the interface to USB charge directly. However the v48 indicator kept flashing when connect to Apple CCK.

        Hence, today I tried to use a higher amp charge 5v with 2a. But problem haven't solved.

        If the connect kit doesn't works ultimately. I might buy the original iPhone CCK (without lighting power input) and find the USB Y cable

        Delete
      7. If you're not using the USB Hub Splitter, and USB Y cable, the Scarlett 2i2 will just NOT work with any iOS device. You have to make the connections exactly as they appear on the schematic in the article.

        You need:

        1. a power source (power bar or wall charger)
        2. the USB Y cable with one end going to power, the other going to 2i2
        3. the Hub Splitter
        3. the CCK

    33. The reason you get the "device requires too much power" message when not using the hub splitter is because at the end of the camera adapter it is looking only at the next device in line. If it just saw the usb the the focusrite it know that it can't output the power to run it. When you put the splitter between it the iPad only sees that data transfer is needed because you are supplying power to the focusrite externally.

      Thanks for this info. I couldn't get it to work with Jackery bar so I plugged the red end straight into an i phone charger plug and still didn't work so I reset my ipad( which took 2 attempts), It still didn't work then I noticed the green monitor light slightly flickering and it just started to work.It's as if the Focusrite needed to charge for a little bit, so worth a try if your having trouble. You do need the usb splitter or it won't work.

      1. What do you wish to know exactly? Keep in mind that this article was written almost 3 years ago. I don't have a 2nd gen Scarlett 2i2 or and iPad Air 2. I don't use iOS 10 either.

    36. Hi everyone! Thanks for your guide.
      I have a scarlet 2i2 2nd gen and inuse it to record with bias fx on a macbook pro. For the ipad (same software) i've always used the apogee jam. Do you think i would have a better sound quality and a lower latency using the scarlet?
      Thanks!!

      1. Possibly but is the small difference worth the trouble? The Apogee JAM is plug-and-play.

    37. Is it possible to power the Scarlett Solo and use it only as a mixer/monitor and not hook to the iPhone or iPad? I just want to plug in the guitar, and play out the RCA outs in the back. Is that possible?

      Thanks,
      Paul

      1. Hmmm. Good question. I think it needs to be connected to a device (PC or phone/tablet) to work.

      2. Thanks for your feedback. Follow up question, do you think this will work w/an Android phone and USB C? Instead of Lightening connector you would have USB C and that plugs into Android phone. Do you think that would work?

        Thanks,
        Paul

      3. It should work. You will need different cables and adapters though. Take a look at this: HERE .
