?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.
Griffin Technologies has introduced a new DJ Cable for iOS DJ app users:
Not just another splitter cable, our DJ cable is wired to enable the Split Output function in djay, and simultaneously hear both what the PA is playing and the track you are cueing up.
With Split Output mode enabled, djay sends the master output to the left channel, and the cue output to the right channel. This lets you cue songs through your headphones independently of the mix that’s going through the speakers. At the same time, you can hear everything that’s going on. No DJ would want to be without it!
The use of special cables like this with iOS DJ apps is a kludge – but currently necessary for many iOS-based DJ set ups. Continue reading →
Griffin has introduced the StompBox – a $99 pedal controller for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
With assignable foot switches and a 1/4″ effects pedal input jack, the StompBox is designed to let you use a compatible iOS device (i.e., iPhone, iPad or iPod touch) as a portable, programmable effects board and practice rig.
Connected to a compatible iPad or other iOS device with a 1-meter-long heavy-duty dock connector cable, StompBox gives the user four professional quality foot switches. StompBox accepts an industry-standard 1/4″ mono plug from a wide range of variable inputs, including volume, expression, and wah-wah pedals. Continue reading →
