Does anybody know if you can connect an Apogee Gio to an ipad 2?
Thanks

    I was hoping this would be possible myself. However, since Gio requires drivers, I'm willing to bet the answer is "no".
    I've not tried any devices on my ipad yet, but my understanding is that, so far, devices will only work if they are "class compliant", meaning they don't require any drivers to work on either a mac or ipad.

    System requirements for the Apogee Gio cleary state OS: 10.5.7 or greater
    and a USB connection. Ipad provides neither.

    iPad 3 with camera USB adapter <- powered USB hub main into iPad. Apogee Gio into USB hub. The guitar input and headphones work. The pedal buttons do nothing. This was a breakthrough for me. Didn't want to purchase yet another input device. Apogee Gio can not be powered from the iPad. However once powered from the USB hub, it works. Also plugged my m audio 49 keyboard into USB hub. Everything worked. Rich sound through apogee with headphones.
