Can wireless MIDI be as fast as wired MIDI?
iConnectivity iConfig provides access to some sophisticated MIDI features in the iConnectivity MIDI interface connected to your system, as well as the audio settings. It allows you to save and open complete routing and processing Snapshot files that make working with sophisticated systems very simple. You can name inputs, route MIDI selectively, and process MIDI in various ways.
It’s compatible with iOS devices running iOS 5 or later.
iConfig is available as a free download from the App Store.
Developer Nic Grant (Audeonic) has announced MidiBus – a C and Obj-C source code library for developers, designed to make it easy to add comprehensive MIDI support to their apps. It is based on the MIDI engine in MidiBridge.
Grant describes MidiBridge as “a tool for helping developers manage their MIDI implementations.” He adds, “It will be their choice whether to use it or not and will not lock anyone in to some sort of new MIDI bus as it is just a layer on top of CoreMIDI to help make MIDI on iOS more consistent to the end, user as well as saving developers work in making it so.”

iMIDIPatchbay - a new iPad app that’s designed to let you organize your whole MIDI setup from one central point – is now available.
The developer notes:
“iMIDIPatchbay aims to be used on stage. As I’m a live keyboardist myself and make frequent usage of the app, a great user experience and ease of use is taken care of. While some other apps also offer routing for MIDI data on iOS, none of them addresses the needs of live musicians. For example, iMIDIPatchbay allows to switch programs while still holding down keys without interrupting the sound. Furthermore, the user interface?s artwork fits nicely to real hardware devices.”
