  • Thanks a lot Tom, Sound wise the the ICA4+ delivers better results. I think thats due to the internal digital routing from iPad to iMac instead of having a stereo pair of cables running from the sonic port to the ica4+. However, I keep researchin…
  • Thanks Telefunky. Absolutely, any amp in BIAS FX or AMP produces noise, depending on how much gain you drive it gets way worse. Interesting enough though, when I use my Line6 Sonic Port (powered by the iPad and not connected the house circuit) on t…
  • OK, I tried another USB cable to connect ICA4+ to my iMac. It works great so far. No issues within 8 hours. I took some other measures too, so am not too sure if it was the cable or something else. I unplugged everything else from the iMac. Exchang…
  • The problem is not caused by the IOS device. I have unplugged it and still communication is lost after 2 minutes or less. I also tried the other USB Port on the ICA4+: still same issue. Assuming that the cable that came with the device is a regular …
  • @nickbatz: allow me to correct myself. I meant to write: Does anyone know how to make MY device run stable. I know there plenty of users who don't have any issues. That is why I still have hope to work with the ICA4+. Apologies if I may sound a litt…
  • Same problem here on IMac late 2013 Newest OS X. Hitting OK doesn't help. There is not even an OK option. It just says "Communication Error" and gives me an option to refresh. That doesn't help, the ICA 4 does not even show up in Iconfig anymore. I…
  • Kgmessier, Nope, but since you don't use the ICA4+ I think I rather like to hear the experiences of people who use the exactly this device. Thanks anyway.... Cheers.
  • Seems like I finally figured it out! Sample rate 48.000Hz does not work with Bias FX on iPad 4! Don't know if the iPad 4 is just to old to run Bias FX at 48Khz. I did not bother to try BIAS yet. However, here is what I did after alle the great advi…
  • Thanks for replying, this gives me a hope. And yes, I bought the device because it is unique and the perfect fit for my set up. I would have to pay at least 200€ to replace my iPad Apps with the desktop versions. I think I gonna wait a few days and…
  • Has anyone made experiences with 10.11.2 beta 4 and iOS 9.3 beta 2? Supposedly, the bug is fixed and the IPad and IMac work together at 44.100Hz. I tried to download the IOS Beta, but it does not appear im my IPad Software updates (Beta Profile is i…
  • Ok, seems like the Garageband outputs are USB 2 (OS X) 1&2 in the Patchbay. Routed them to the hp out, works. So these seem to be the master channels. The routing you described for using the iPad as a "plug in" works, but with pops and clicks. T…
  • Thanks Kanegon. I think the concept of the ICA4 is awesome. The ICA4 does work with my iPad/IOS9/Bias FX just perfectly, when the iPad is set as clock master. However, when I try to route the I Pad signal back to the iMac where I record in Garageba…
  • OK, thanks for taking the time to explain. I filed a support ticket already. Until it is hopefully fixed, I will send the Audio signal from the iPad Interface to the ICA4+ to record in Garageband the old fashioned way....hope that this works...
  • Thanks for replying, at least I don't feel being left alone.... I use the iPad Retina/Ipad 4. The Audio Signal from the IPad (running BIAS FX) is just fine when not routed back into Garageband. In my scenario it does make little difference wich dev…
  • I still don't get it. After a frustrating week of trying to get things to work I stumbled about this post only to read, that Connectivity states you are nit planning on a fix, but rather leave to to Apple?!? Really? My Old Alesis IO2 worked great o…
