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.

Partially good iPad interface with weakness

Thomas985, 04.10.2016
The PlugKey provides significantly better audio quality than the iPad headphone jack. Apps such as Korg modules make the iPad a full-fledged sound module. Korg seems to use quite good DAC converters. The volume control is also a great plus in the use of the iPads as Midi sound source.

But why does the thing have no USB-Midi in although a mini-USB socket for loading the iPads is installed? This is probably only the Korg Product Manager ... USB keyboards such as the in-house Korg MicroKey can not be used with the PlugKey! How silly is that?
