Hi Lara thanks for your note. I’ve just seen that the audio device setting in settings is set to iPad microphone how do I get it to pick up my microphone? I have a mic plugged into a presonus audio box one with a lightning cable going into my iPad
It sounds like your iPad/Cubasis is not detecting the Presonus interface, it should show up and be selected by default under “Audio/Audio Device”
Keep in mind that the Presonus needs to be powered via the USB 2.0 port and an AC adapter of some kind, the iPad should be connected to the Device port via a Camera Connection Kit (the iPad will not power the Presonus)
Power up the Presonus first, then plug it into the iPad
In general, we recommend to use Apple’s original adapters to connect hardware interfaces.
Since we’re not equipped with the PreSounus audio device, we suggest to get in touch with PreSonus to discuss the topic.
We’re at hand to provide them with a Cubasis promo code for testing purposes if required.
Had a quick look at the manual, you don’t need a CCK for this interface, but you DO need to power the interface separately from the iPad.

USB 2.0/Power Port…
This port also provides power to the interface when used with an iPad.
Simply use the included USB cable connected to a compatible 5V, 2.1A
(2,100 mA) USB power supply, such as the one from an iPad.
so you need two cables:
USB(type A) to lightning between iPad and interface (the cable that came with your iPad)
USB(type B) to USB(type A) for power supply (this came with your interface, you can use any USB power supply, like the one that would normally charge your iPad)
