Summer NAMM 2012: Griffin MIDIConnect

At the 2012 Summer NAMM Show: Griffin Technology has announced the availability of MIDIConnect, a MIDI interface for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad.

“MIDIConnect offers musicians a compact and portable solution to create and edit music on the go, at a fraction of the cost of a recording studio,” said Ethan Opelt, Line Manager of Griffin’s Audio category. “We are excited to be showcasing MIDIConnect… at Summer NAMM in Nashville, our home town.”

MIDIConnect adds a MIDI input and output to iOS devices, and allows the user to plug MIDI keyboards and other MIDI-capable devices into an iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. The user can play MIDI instruments straight into MIDI-capable applications like GarageBand. MIDIConnect users can also download MIDI controller apps to make use of the MIDI out port and the iOS devices’ touchscreens as a MIDI controller.

Both MIDI in and out ports are industry-standard 5-pin DIN connectors, compatible with most commonly available MIDI cables and connectors.

MIDIConnect is now available for purchase (MSRP $79.99) at www.GriffinTechnology.com.
