Question Equipment needed to connect interface

I get a little confused with iOS connections. Using iPad Pro 2018 what do I need to buy?

I'd like to be able to record of course. Also would like to give online lessons with stereo pair on piano and a separate microphone for talking to student. I have lots of good microphones (no USB ones though)

I would also like to connect a midi keyboard to the iPad Pro for some synth playing live.

Also would be good to record audio on the iPad.

I was looking at RME Babyface Pro.

Do i need a camera connection kit or adaptor of some kind or are the Audio/Midi interfaces USB C now?

Thank you. I looked up lots of YouTube and forums and can't seem to find the answer.

i am in the same situation as you

i do not think the ipad pro 2018 has a USBC connection, isn't it still a lightning ?

if so, you'll need a adapter cable, but i was wondering if a simple(r) Lightning-USB cable wouldn't do

i hear good things about the tascam & steinberg (USB) interfaces

It is USB C. Very similar to the 2020 pro.

I'll read some reviews on those thanks.

I've been messing about with a Lightning iPad 2019 and my bus powered SSL2+ (audio x2 + midi). I'll not be using it in anger but will be good to have the tools when required.

I've ended up with a powered USB hub, a Lightning/USB adaptor and a small cable to hook up a powerbank for battery use.

So far works perfectly.
