Author Topic: Ipad pro 12.9 wont charge while plugged in (camera connection kit + usb-c)  (Read 1235 times)

Im having issues with the audiofuse draining all the power from my ipad pro 12.9 second gen.

Its connected through the usb-3 camera connection kit which has a lightning power through coming from an 87W apple usb-c adapter. Usually this fast charges the ipad quickly, but even when the audiofuse is powered by the wall adapter it will quickly drain the power from the ipad.

Any ideas?

PS: still waiting patiently for the promised iOS editor :)

Hi willhindson,
you're reffering to this adapter, right?

don't have such device at the office , i only have the standard lightning camera connection kit.
I assume you're using the AudioFuse in full power mode(PSU + USB connection). Then i would kike to know that if you change AudioFuse power mode (green , mixdown, mixdown green), does it save the Ipad power in a better way?
as a reminder :
On green mode, you'll have access to all AudioFuse features, but max level for I/O will be +18dB (instead of +24dB when in full power)
On mixdown, you'll have access to outputs only, with max level  of +24dB (and +18dB in mixdown green)

you can set the power mode in AudioFuse control center settings . "Auto" will equal to full power mode when connected with PSU+USB, or will equal to green mode if connected with USB only.

if you don't wan't to use AudioFuse control center , we've got a special trick for this!
while powering up the unit hold some buttons this way :

auto : hold phone 1 "mono" button while powering
green : hold phone 1 "cue" while powering
mixdown : hold "talkback" while powering
mixdown green : hold phone 2 while powering.

Hope this helps
best regards,

So ive Got a shiny 11 iPad Pro with the usb c port.
I bought the AudioFuse to connect via a USB-C hub.  Plugged it in and used the micro usb cable supplied and errr nothing.  Anyone else similar problems?

I use a satechi usb hub with my 3rd gen 12.9 iPad Pro. No issues recording into Auria pro.
