    Just purchased the Kontrol Z for use with my iPad. When I plug in the power supply the unit's lights turn on and cycle through and then goes dark. When I plug in my iPad nothing happens and when I load up Traktor the unit doesn't control the interface. It works fine when I bus power it through my laptop but obviously can't use my iPad. Any suggestions?

    The most common problem is the lighting to 30 pin adapter, if you bought a pirate adapter it won't recognize the z1, is the original adapter by apple?

    Step by step what i do.
    1 plug the power supply to the electricity
    2 check the lights turn on of the z1
    3 connect the z1 to the ipad
    4 check the message from the z1, "do you allow the z1 connect to traktor dj" or something like that
    5 start
    If the step 4 doesn't appear or if in the app the z1 doesn't turn the lights on i closed the app and restart it and it fixes the issue.
