Can wireless MIDI be as fast as wired MIDI?
That’s one question raised by the new PUC wireless MIDI interface. The PUC is a wireless CoreMIDI interface that connects any MIDI hardware device to CoreMIDI-compatible apps.
This video, via JamStikVideo, captures some of the preliminary latency tests Zivix is doing to demonstrate the MIDI transmission times over WiFi on a MacBook Pro (i7) and an iPad 2 (iOS6) using their new WiFi MIDI interface, the PUC.
The PUC is being developed as a crowd-funded IndieGoGo project.
Let us know what you think of this comparison. And if you’ve got other concerns or other things you’d like to see demonstrated with the PUC, leave a comment! For a crowd-funded project like this to be a success, the developers will need to address the types of questions that Synthtopia readers bring up.
