Hello!

I have a few questions about connecting my dtx450k to my ipad and macbook.

1. How do I connect the drum kit to the dtx400Touch app?
I already have a usb b to usb a adapter so I tried to connect Ipad->30-pin to usb a cable->usb a to usb b adapter->dtx450k brain.
This did not work. Do I need some other cable and/or adapter for this to work or why does the app not recognize the drum kit?

2. I want to record sound from the drum kit to garageband or other software. How should I connect the drum kit to my macbook?
Can I use a USB b to USB a cable and connect the kit straight to the computer? Can I connect the devices with an aux cable?

3. I want to use the drum kit as a midi controller and use it to play sounds from a music software in my macbook. Is this possible? How should I connect the kit to the macbook?
Do I need to change any specific settings in my computer or the software I use to be able to trigger sound from the drum kit?


Available cables/adapters at the moment:
Aux cable + 3,5mm to 6,3mm adapter
30-pin to usb Ipad cable + Usb b to usb adapter
Usb b to usb a cable


I don't know if I should buy a yamaha i-ux1, an irig 2 or some other cable/adapter and I feel like I'm losing out on some pretty cool features if I don't solve the connecting problems.


I'd be very greateful for helpful advice. Thanks in advance!

    Ok so the obvious USB to Lightning doesn't work for any OS after 7, so is the only solution two adapters costing £60-£80? Ouch!
