When Googling « Lighning midi », we have some interesting cable :

https://www.amazon.com/RVOKOMS-Comp...ophone/dp/B07R9Q6VZ5/ref=mp_s_a_1_2_sspa

It seems a CCK packaged differently (Male USB-B instead of Female USB-A) with a charging Male USB-A plug added.

I think the Male USB-B could be used with a Hub if we have multiple devices to connect.

Everyone is trying to be helpful but some are also just trying to figure this out, adding to your confusion.

Listen to Jonky or better yet, search on YouTube - a video is worth a million words!

I didn't want to spend the money on a genuine Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter but did anyway because I didn't want to take a chance on a knockoff not working properly.

Another gadget that I've found useful is the BM-A01 Wireless MIDI adapter. Again, do a search on YouTube if you're not familiar with it.

OP here,

Thank you to everyone who responded and is trying to help. I ordered a few adapters to see if I can get this to work. One is usb-b to lightning and the other is the belkin audio + charge rockstar. This setup should allow a direct connection from the piano to the Iphone instead of through the hub. If this doesn't work I will just order the cck adapter mentioned above.

Here is the apple product. https://www.apple.com/shop/product/HLJV2ZM/A/belkin-35-mm-audio-charge-rockstar

Once I get the piano working I will worry about speakers and such later. For right now the quitar amp should suffice.

I didn't mean to offend those of you with very helpful answers; I only mentioned Jonky because he was the first to offer the right advice; other members have also been helpful by confirmed the need for the camera adapter but there were also advices from those who clearly didn't have a useful answer making things even more confusing for the OP.

Now that the OP knows he absolutely has to have the Camera Adapter, maybe a quick YouTube video on how things connect will make sense?

That Belkin cable will allow you to charge you phone while listening to music, which is nice... now back to your Ravenscroft VST issues...

So usb B from the VPC1 to lightning into the belkin won't work?

It will not work for the issue you posted about.

According to the product description, what it will do is allow you to listen to music through headphones while your iPhone/iPad is charging.

I want to point out that there are a couple other adapters out there that would allow you to plug your VPC1 to your IOS device. The problem is, even when they work, as soon as you plug something in, the battery on your phone will start to drain so even if it does work, it doesn't work for very long and you will have to unplug everything so you can charge your phone.The USB 3 camera adapter allows you to charge your phone at the same time.
