Topic: iPad Pro 2020 USB-C only detects RME ADI-2 DAC FS every 2nd attempt

Dear all. I‘ve owned the wonderful ADI-2 for about 2 weeks now an I love it!

One thing bugs me, though. I am using the ADI-2 exclusively with my 2020 iPad Pro through USB-C, directly connected to the ADI-2. The iPad detects the ADI-2 only on every 2nd attempt - always! No matter if the ADI-2 is powered on or not.

So, every time I want to listen to music, I -> Connect USB-C Cable to iPad, nothing, disconnect USB-C Cable, Connect again - detected as AID-2 DAC music interface.

Is there anything I can do to get the ADI-2 detected as soon as I attach the cable, first try?

BTW. My portable DAC Ifi Hip-Dac, connected to the same iPad via USB-C is detected without flaw, every time with the 1st attempt. So I think the Problem exists between ADI-2 and the iPad...

We have seen this behaviouir with the iPad Pro on several CC devices. IMHO Apple will fix this sooner or later.

Thanks for your quick reply! So this problem relates to software and exists in iPadOS?

I understood the answer exactly this way.

Hi, when you say you connect the iPad through usb-c, do you use the camera kit or you use the iPad usb-c cable and a usb-c to usb type B adapter?

Re: iPad Pro 2020 USB-C only detects RME ADI-2 DAC FS every 2nd attempt

iPad Pro connector is usb c so no need for an adapter.
