Default Roland TD4KP - What Next

Hi there, I've just bought my young son a TD4KP to practise on after his weekly lessons.

What will help him is using something like V-Drums Friend Jam that will allow him to play along with songs without drums included and to get feedback on timings etc.

Id like to use my iPad but from what I've read I'd need a module that has a USB connection to connect up wirelessly. That is what I thought until I read this in the Roland website.

"Now Compatible with the iPad
Compact, convenient, and fast, the affordable UM-ONE mk2 boasts high-performance FPT processing for low latency and tight timing. The bus-powered MIDI interface is compatible with Macs and PCs, and now with the iPad as well via the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit!"

Can anyone tell me how the iPad Camera Connection Kit works in the above scenario please, I don't understand :o(


Many thanks in advance,


Jim

I do not know for sure but my guess is the camera kit will allow you to plug in a USB device to an ipad the um-one mk2 needs a USB port to connect to anything. So it's a bridge to allow the connection in other words.

Ah ok, that makes perfect sense now (I think)

So I connect the Camera Connection Kit to the ipad, connect the USB from the UM-One to the connection kit and the MIDI from the UM-One to the TDK Module?



Thanks,



Jim
