Good and compact interface

S.Merk, 04.03.2017
The plugKEY should solve a problem with me, because my old tried and tested Technics sx-KN7000 could not be used by USB on the iPad. Audio files have been transferred perfectly, and there are strong failures with MIDI. With plugKEY I wanted to expand the iOS devices by sensible connections.

The two controllable outputs sound very good, with a Bowers & Wilkins P9 were only noticeable with minor music, but with organic sounds, the interface could sound. The amplification is also sufficient to use it as a headphone amplifier. With a maximum of 24 bits of word width and 48 KHz sampling frequency, the data is matched with the converters of the iOS devices and so it is not suitable for high-resolution music. But it is also not intended. The apps can natively drive the plugKEY, plug in is enough and it works.

The latency of the MIDI input is pleasantly low and depends on the performance and the apps used. With modules, no delay is actually heard. The processing in the solid plastic housing I like, the connections are solid and the strain relief of the fixed Lightning cable is good. Let's just hope that Apple will remain with Lightning in the future and will not switch to USB-C.

The micro-USB socket is only for charging, the attempt with a microKEY 61 and Novation Launchkey Mini connected to the USB OTG adapter has been unsuccessful. First of all, because there is no USB hub between plugKEY and iPad. After all, the iOS device can be filled with energy during use, which makes sense on the stage.

Overall, it is a good and compact compromise, which can particularly accommodate owners of older keyboards. With plugKEY you can not only convert the iOS device into a sound module, but you can optimize the audio quality and a small headphone amplifier is still on top. And all this for the boot pocket, a USB-A-Port could still find place.

Good if you only need midi and audio out

29.01.2017
This midi interface is designed to be run MIDI input and output. So, no midi out to external synths.

Audio outputs Includes 2 1/4 jack, and a mini-jack for headphones. The connected directly on the phone or iPad, and you are running. Camera Connection Kit is not necessary. You also avoid having to be afraid of the little headphone socket on your IOS device, as this is a more robust solution.

It is also possible to connect a charger at the same time, however, this connection with mini USB.

Finish and durability looks fine, and the device fits easily in the trunk.

If now it also got midi out, it would be a enda better product, and if coupling for external power followed the same standard as similar charges, was it 5 stars.
