Useless – – total waste of time
Totally useless. The app can’t connect to griffin’s iTrip BT adapter. When you try to send an email to support from inside the app it fails. Nothing happens when you press send. Griffin used to make good products I don’t know what’s going on there now.
Studio Connect issues may have become hardware issues...
I scored a Griffin StudioConnect at Guitar Center Outlet today for $8. Eight frickin' BUCKS!!!
I was so happy I bought two... and I am sooo glad I did.
I've got an iPad 3 and an Akai MPK61 Controller. I just got the Akai a few days ago used and haven't used it up until now. I've been using all my apps touchscreen for almost two years. I got home and immediately hooked everything up. I've been waiting for this day for quite some time. I had no clue of any firmware issue or utility app in existence. Everything worked fine for the first 30 minutes...then the power on the SC would shut off and on every 20 seconds. I went online and discovered the iPad 3 needs the FW update and the utility app is how you do it.
After 10 to 15 failed attempts on BOTH current and recent updates, I knew something was wrong. I decided to open the 2nd one ( I was going to give to my nephew, but he has an iPad 2, he wouldn't need the update) I powered the 2nd up, opened the utility, ran the update. Blame! Less than 30 seconds I had my latest firmware.
I truly believe the powering down and overheated wall adapter had done damage to something. Hardware issue. If you rN your SC on an IPad 3+ and experienced the powered down episodes... I'm betting you aren't able to update your FW
Brilliant, about time someone is thinking
This is a brilliant way to update the firmware in a device like this; I look forward to greater capabilities and a more effective beacon as time goes by. Why can't my TV manufacturer figure out how to do this?
