    I have a mini retina that I'd like to play with some more synths on. I'd like to pick up a small midi keyboard to use with it, but can't find many good options. I was hoping that someone had come out with a bluetooth midi implementation by this point, but that doesn't seem to be out there. What other options do I have? I'd love something that I can connect directly - can I just use my lightnight - USB cable to connect directly to a usb keyboard? It seems that I can't, but I don't really understand why. I'd appreciate any help.

    Have a look at the CME Xkey. It connects USB via the lightning CCK or generic lightning USB card reader or lightning USB hub you can find on eBay from China. The Xkey retails for 99.00 US.
