I think it is an issue between iRig and Steinberg.
I use MIDI and playing the piano as a form of ear therapy as I have really severe Tinnitus and it helps me to cope with it. I like keeping my mind occupied as if not you want me to list the various related symptoms it creates also? I took an early retirement, I can only hear partially on a phone.
So, have I tried everything, you determine, that no matter whether I am hooked up before I launch CubasisLE or afterwards, the same screen appears telling me that I am in Demo Mode.
I have tried it several times but whatever ping they are looking for, my product is not providing.
I am not going to return my keyboard and purchase the iRig Keys Pro vs the iRig Keys 37 Pro USB which I have now, it is more expensive and due to the fact that the interfaces after market parts plugging into either the lightning port or the 30-Pin port have been being disabled with updates to the iOS which happen automatically unless you say “no”, well I have a devise already which was disabled: my cellphone charger for my iPhone as it wasn’t an Apple product and did my cellphone company who I bought the phone from tell me it was not a genunine Apple product? No.
So I learned, to always be sure to buy genuine Apple parts from now on. I have asked on an iRig forum is their interface wires which come in the iRig Keys Pro are exempt from Apple’s disabling, so if I get an answer, I’ll report back.
In the meanwhile, though I bought my keyboard/controller on a Labor Day Weekend Sale for $79.99. I have also spent on two Apple Camera Connection kits: one for the iPad 2 (requires the 30-Pin adapter), and one for my more recent iPhone (takes the lightning to USB Female Camera Connection kit). Each was $30.00. The iRig Keys Pro sells for $150.00. I have spend $139.99 not including tax for what does with the keyboard/controller from iRig: EXACTLY THE SAME THING.
Should it work on CubasisLE, in my book, “YES”. But it does not.
I read lips fortunately so it is like being deaf with the amount of ringing I have in my ears called TINNITUS. I was very much hoping it would work.
As I said before, the light product would work for me and would likely upgrade to is, I’ve been very impressed with what I have seen.
But I have to afford things incrementally, does that sound familiar?
In the meanwhile, I have accessories I must pay for due to my hearing loss.
So I fall in between the cracks, don’t I?
Tell me, what could be better than the Apple Camera Connection kit hooked up to the iRig Keys 37 Pro USB? You know if I had stayed with the iRig Keys Pro and not bought the camera kits for my iPad and iPhone, I’d be using the Steinberg product now, whereas customers of the iRig Keys Pro would either be returning their products due to the newest diabling of the iOS of the iRig interface wires. They have to pay then through the nose again, except I bought my iRig Keys on Sale, still have 37 full-size keys, still supporting iRig who decided to sell the iRig Keys 37 Pro because I suspect the iOS updates are affecting them.
That I am a smarter customer, … well no good deed goes unpunished as they say.
In the end, who causes the most heartaches to a company, intelligent or unintelligent customers?
Everyday people return products which work but they don’t have the right hardware to coordinate with them. So in my case, I overthink? No, I think on the other end, no one considered that they were going to sell any iRig Keys 37 Pro USB keyboards.
Reviews by those who purchased it say it does all that the iRig Keys Pro can do, except qualify for what should logically work with Steinberg.
Oh, well, what more can I say?
