Welcome back! I've used the io Dock in our band jams with iPad 4 with the adapter cable from Apple for over half a year without issues. The adapter with the short interconnect works best, the smaller adapter puts a bit of a strain on the connectors so wouldn't recommend it.

I managed to get get a CME Xkey from Thomann 2 weeks ago, if anyone's struggling to find them. Great fun.
