Anyone else successful at using the 12 Step with an iPad Mini?

So far, I cannot get it to work.

It's also possible you may need to power the 12 Step externally (plug the Expander port into a USB power supply), or use a powered USB hub going into the iPad. The 12 Step may potentially be drawing just enough power to light up, but not enough to actually function properly. Every now and then Apple likes to play around with the power draw limits between iOS revisions.

I've got an iPad mini 1st gen, which now won't play ball with my 12 step, I think the problem is ios 8.1.2 but can't roll back now to double check!

I have the 12 step running fine with my iPhone 4S running 8.1.2.

Have you tried changing all cables? Also make sure to go into your specific app and select "12 Step" in the MIDI list.

O.k guys! The solution for my non communicating 12 step to iPad mini was to UPDATE THE FIRMWARE on 12 step. Please KMI people take note of this, this is something you should ask that everyone does before troubleshooting with them. Anyway, glad to be back in the game again!
