This video demo doesn’t look like much – but it’s the first time we’ve seen an iPad app MIDI synced to other MIDI hardware
This is a demo showing our FunkBox drum machine iPad app synced up with an x0xb0x synth, using CoreMIDI and an iPad camera connection kit with an m-audio uno MIDI interface.
This will be included as a bonus feature in the next FunkBox 2.0 update which is coming soon!
If you’re an iPad musician, the addition of MIDI sync could be a big deal.
It means that you can buy an app, for the price of a cup of coffee, that turns your iPad into a multi-touch hardware drum machine.
As more developers support CoreMIDI, iPads are likely to be attractive alternatives to some dedicated MIDI modules.
How big of a deal is MIDI sync for iOS? Let us know what you think!
