  • Hi,

    You should! The USB-B cable from the keyboard would Connect to the female USB-A input on the adapter, and you’ll still be able to charge your iPad Pro at the same time via the USB-C pass-through power delivery connection on the adapter.

    If you’re listening to the audio directly from the iPad, the above sets up is all that you will need. However, if you are using external speakers, I would suggest instead that you use a powered USB-C hub that has at least a 3.5 mm output and the minimum number of USB ports to connect your midi devices and audio interface (that’s if you don’t get a USB-C hub with a 3.5mm output).

    Hope this helps.
