I have an iPad connected to my DGX-670..... Is it possible to communicate and receive power at the same time ?

There are no midi ports.

Right now I am hooked up to #1...... It seems like I am always charging the ipad so I am hoping that I can have the iPad plugged into power and the keyboard at the same time !

You been an adaptor for the iPad (Same applies to Android) that will accept the USB connector and power lead at the same time.

You’ll need at the least, a camera connection dongle with an additional Lightning input for power. Is yours a Lightning based iPad, or the older long connector? Bit harder to find those old connectors.

Does your iPad have 1/8” headphone out? If not (I know the newer iPhones don’t have one, not sure if newer iPads dropped it, I’m on an old Gen6) you’ll need one with USB, Lightning and a 1/8” audio out too…

I believe I have the #1 adaptor that’s in the above post. Works fine.
