Future Retro has introduced the Mondovox… a rack module that’s designed to provide “new ways to play, control, and breathe new life into your MIDI sound modules.”
The Modovox takes polyphonic MIDI data and translates it to so that each voice is on its own MIDI channel.
With the Mondovox, you can polyphonically play up to 16 monophonic synthesizers in ways you would expect to find in features-laden polysynths, expanding upon those ideas for many new and exciting possibilities.
Although it’s designed to play multiple monosynths (such as our popular XS semi-modular synthesizer) polyphonically, the Mondovox can be used with any monophonic, polyphonic, multitimbral or single voice, analog, digital, virtual synthesizer or sampler…. it doesn’t matter, as long as it has MIDI.

Can wireless MIDI be as fast as wired MIDI?
That’s one question raised by the new PUC wireless MIDI interface. The PUC is a wireless CoreMIDI interface that connects any MIDI hardware device to CoreMIDI-compatible apps. Continue reading
Today at Disrupt, Zivix launched the PUC – a new device that adds wireless connectivity to any MIDI device – even your vintage synths.
The PUC is a wireless CoreMIDI interface that connects any MIDI hardware device to CoreMIDI-compatible apps. The development of the PUC is being funded as a ‘crowdfunded’ IndieGoGo project.
“We’re excited to introduce a peripheral that connects legacy MIDI gear to present day mobile technology, providing accessibility to the exploding number of MIDI apps,” said Zivix Vice President, Chad Koehler.
Here’s an overview of the PUC: Continue reading
Z Vector is a new visualization tool that lets you use depth sensors, like the Microsoft Kinect and PrimeSense Carmine, “to sample reality in real-time, visualize it the way you like and explore it in 3D with Full HD resolution.”
Designed to be a live performance tool, rather than a programming environment, Z Vector can animate nearly every variable within the software, using integrated sound analysis algorithms, synthetic rhythms or via externally triggered MIDI/OSC signals. Continue reading
iConnectivity has released iConfig, a free companion app for iConnectivity’s MIDI interfaces.
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.
This video via MusicAppBlog’s John Walden, takes a look at how to setup a wireless MIDI connection between your iPad and a Windows PC desktop computer. Continue reading
