Developer Michael Tyson (Loopy, AudioBus) wants his upcoming Loopy Masterpiece app to have rock-solid MIDI sync, with hardware and other iOS apps. In working on this, though, he found that he’s fighting the fact that MIDI sync is not implemented consistently across iOS apps.
To address this, Tyson has announced The Spectacular Sync Engine – an open source, standards-compliant, solid MIDI sync engine for iOS.
The Spectacular Sync Engine is designed to easy to work with, and provides precise, jitter-free MIDI clock transmission and robust, error-tolerant MIDI clock reception for iOS apps.
According to Tyson, the Sync Engine is unit-tested, accompanied by extensive documentation and a complete sample app, The Spectacular Sync Engine is designed to let devellpers easily add sync support, without needing to worry about the details.
