Secret Base Design has released Apollo MIDI Over Bluetooth Free – a time-limited free version of its Apollo MIDI app, which is designed to try out using MIDI over low-latency Bluetooth LE connections.
With Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth, you can easily connect a pair of iOS devices, or an iOS device and a Mac, using Bluetooth LE. Bluetooth LE is designed for low latency, which makes it a good option for music applications.
The app requires that your devices support Bluetooth LE.
- This is available on the iPad3, iPad4, iPad Air, and iPad Mini.
- iPhones starting with the iPhone 4S support Bluetooth LE.
- Newer Macs also support Bluetooth LE; older Macs may require a USB Bluetooth LE adapter.
If you’ve got older devices, they don’t support Bluetooth LE and work. Try the free version of the app to try it out and verity that it will meet your needs. See the Secret Base Design site for full technical details.
