Midi Mobilizer And Iphone 5 - Which Adapters Work?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks;

Having recently switched iPhones from the 4s to the 5s, I now find myself unable to use the MIDI Mobilizer without some sort of 30-pin to Lightning adapter. I bought some off-brand adapters from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DGMVRMY/ref=shptrk_scth), but they don't seem to support the data transfer needed here (when plugged in, I get a message like "this product is not certified for use with iPhone", and then when I open the MIDI Memo app, I get the message "Requires MIDI Interface", as if nothing was plugged into it at all). Does anyone have any experience using the Apple-manufactured adapters with the Mobilizer instead? (although my suspicion is that both Apple's and this other product I bought from Amazon are made in the same factory in China)

Thanks for looking and for any helpful ideas on this.

Same thing happening to me. 
Bought a 30 pin Adapter from Takashi, had to buy the whole bundle. Guess what, it does not work. I mean, is there people out there still using Iphone 3 and 4? Mine is the 5s and I believe that Line 6 products should be within same pace as the new stuff from Apple's Iphone, What are we gonna do? Right now, it is useless. Sorry, I feel disapointed, I am dying to try my new Mobile Key25 also from Line6.

Same thing happens to me, I just opened a ticket with line 6 to find out what they have to say about this. Apparently midi mobilizers are still being sold online with adapters included, so there must be a certain type of adapter that does work, I'm guessing.???

Please take a look at the other post: I use an iPhone SE with iOS 10 and tried both adapters from Apple: the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter and the one with the 0.2 m cable. Both adapters from Apple work with my Line 6 Midi Mobilizer 2. With both apps MIDI Memo and Garage Band.

 

Hope, that helps...
