Zivix recently announced that last year’s IndieGogo project, the PUC wireless MIDI interface, has begun shipping.
The PUC is a wireless MIDI interface designed specifically for iOS devices. The PUC allows the user to wirelessly connect any MIDI device (keyboard, DJ controller, drum pad, floor pedal controllers, etc.) directly to the user’s iPad. PUC can also work with any platform that supports a MIDI connection over WiFi.
The PUC communicates directly to the iPad via WiFi directly as a device, and no “host” WiFi network is necessary. PUC uses an open standard for Core MIDI over WiFi. Once your legacy MIDI signals are translated into Core MIDI by the PUC, any Core MIDI compatible app can recognize it.
We previously talked about the PUC when it was announced at Disrupt last fall. The development of the PUC was being funded as a ‘crowdfunded’ IndieGoGo project, but is now available to the general public.
Pricing and Availability. The Zivix PUC wireless MIDI interface is available now, and retails for $129.99 US. Videos, product specifications and additional information at the PUC website.
