iPad2 and M-Audio Keystation 61es = compatible

Thinking of buying this as gift for someone. Are the iPad2 and M-Audio Keystation 61es compatible using the camera connection kit?

Class-compliant MIDI interfaces are supposed to be compatible through the Camera connection USB port.

The alternative is the IK Multimedia iRIG MIDI which gives standard MIDI ports for old-school keyboards iRig MIDI - Core MIDI interface for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad

I'm really surprised there aren't more replies to this. Aren't there a bunch of Mac shop (former) owners, staff, etc. who would know this on here?

Hello,

I have the exact same equipment, but I can not make it work.
So could you please help me?

1) How did you connect the 61es to the Ipad?
2) Did you use a power adapter for the 61es?
3) Which app did you use?
4) How did you get it to work?

Thank you.

Yes, you will need to power the keyboard from an AC adapter
