how to make Traktor Audio 6 recognized by Ipad 7 and Dj Player Pro ?

I saw that it was normally possible to connect the Traktor Audio 6 interface with timecode vinyls (DVS) to an iPad, via the Apple camera USB 3 adapter, using for example the "Dj Player Pro" software.

my ipad is a 7th generation with the 16.6 update.

everything is plugged in, the 9v power supply is also connected, the 2.0 usb cable is connected to the Apple adapter... but nothing happens. I really tested everything, I can't get the DVS signal in the Dj player pro software.

it seems that the ipad doesn't recognize the interface.

However, in the DJ Player Pro user manual, it's indicated that it works without problems with Traktor Audio 6, and on the Native Instruments website, it is indicated that iPads also support the interface.

i tested with my computer on windows 7, it works perfectly with Traktor 2 software.

    Are you plugging the interface directly into iPad via cck? Try to connect it to a powered usb hub and plug THIS into the iPad

    Hey there, thanks for responding to OP's question. I have a follow-up question.

    I have two Pioneer PLX-1000 Pro vinyl turntables and an Allen and Heath Xone 23 (2-channel) mixer that I use in conjunction with a Traktor Audio 6 interface and my iMac, on which I run Traktor DJ Pro 3.

    I'd like to use my new iPad with the Traktor Audio 6 instead of my iMac, and if I'm reading your response correctly then my question is this - in order to get the Traktor Audio 6 to connect with an iPad fully, I would need to first plug the USB from the Audio 6 interface into a powered USB hub and then plug the powered USB hub into the iPad?

    I just want to make sure I'm understanding you fully. Thank you!

    That was my suggestion. Which doesn’t mean I’m sure it will work.

    Some changes made to iPadOS made some audio interfaces not working anymore (I had tested it on a Z1) so I was saying to the OP to try it this way to see if something different happened. It’s just a guess, so if you can, try it…if you have to buy a powered USB hub expressly for this…don’t take my words as if it will surely work.

    Maybe if you can’t test it with what you already have see if someone can borrow you one, before spending money on it 😉
