    I purchased a USB Hub from D-link with Type A outputs to connect the iPad mini to a Yeti microphone using a

    D-Link® DUB-1340 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub

    I followed the step below:
    1. Plug one end of the Apple Lightning to USB adapter into the Lightning port of your iPhone or iPad and connect the other end to the powered USB hub.
    My question is the powered USB hub also has Type A USB connections. The Lightning to USB adapter is also Type A.

    Will this work? If not do I need the USB hub end to be Type B connector instead in step 1 above?

    Which models of USB hubs contain both Type A and Type B connectors?

    Keep in mind the Yeti will also connect to this USB Hub and this connection is also a Type A USB connector.


    Thanks in advance.

    I think you can just use the new powered USB adaptor from Apple and connect the microphone directly. No need to hook up a powered USB hub.

    Yeah, i tried that and it does not work. That is the reason I went with the powered USB hub.
