  • no direct import or export of audio files is possible,
    for file transfer you would need a WiFi or lightning external flash drive (search it)

    Live audio streaming is possible however with the right equipment.
    An audio/MIDI interface may be connected to iPad with this accessory,
    the added lightning socket enables lomg term use as the iPad can be charged while you use it.

    I have seen a professional jazz pianist perform using a USB/MIDI controller keyboard
    and the lightning to USB (powered) camera adapter to access the grand piano sample
    library in Garageband app. his piano sound was quite good for live performance. What
    a great way for touring musicians to travel light. One can always borrow a MIDI controller
    keyboard with forward planning for an overseas trip.

    Thank you Apple for including the charging socket on this device, the earlier camera adaptor
    kit was less useful.
