I have an Audiobox USB 96 and I am wondering if I can hook it up to my iPad Air 2 and use my guitars and mics with Garageband and Amplitube.  The Air 2 has a lightning connector and while I know that there are USB to Lightning adapter cables, will this setup work with a USB type B (old printer style) to lightning adapter?  Any help will be appreciated.

I also have an Audiobox USB and would like to know if I can connect to an iPad or iPhone with a USB to Lightning adaptor versus purchasing an Audiobox iTwo.

I have what is known as the Apple camera (or OTG) adapter. It essentially allows the usb A male end of the cord to connect to an iPad or iPhone via the lightning connector. I have had success using an iRig this way and the iPad recognized it just fine. The problem I am running into with the Audiobox96 I just purchased, is that the iPad cannot supply enough current (>100mA) to power the box. (iPad returns a message on the screen)  I would therefore have to use the camera adapter which also includes a female lightning port for in-line charging. I believe it is sold by Apple as the Lightning to USB3 adapter, for around $35. Third party also have cheaper knock-off versions. At this time, I cannot confirm that this will work, but that is my next move. If anyone tries it before I do, let me know how it goes!
