If you have a MIDI controller that is currently not natively supported by djay for iOS, you can still use it with djay’s easy-to-use MIDI Learn feature: Simply connect the MIDI controller to your iOS device (see below), and follow the on-screen instructions to map the hardware controls to functions in djay.
How to connect a controller via USB adapter
Please follow these steps in order to use a MIDI controller via USB.
- Launch djay for iOS.
- Connect a Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter or USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter to your iOS device (depending on your iOS device connector).
- Connect the power adapter from your iOS device to the USB adapter (required for some controllers with higher power requirements, or simply to charge your iOS device during your performance).
- Connect your controller to your iOS device and power it up if required.
- Start using your controller – djay for iOS will automatically configure the MIDI controller and audio interface (if available).
Note that it is important to perform the above steps in the given order to ensure that iOS will detect the MIDI controller.
