When major system upgrades are released – like the recent OS X and iOS updates – many musicians like to wait a few months before upgrading, to avoid compatibility issues.
And then there’s guys like Colin Swinney of The Sound Test Room, who’s exploring the new MIDI over Bluetooth available with OS X Yosemite and iOS 8.
In the video above, he demonstrates using Ableton Live to wirelessly (over Bluetooth LE) sequence Caramel running on his iPad.
Here’s what he has to say about the video:
Our demonstration uses the recently updated Caramel, by Holderness Media, one of the first developers to adopt this new feature in their apps.
First I show you how to make the connections, followed by a run down of how to set this up inside of Ableton Live to automate our effects.
If you’re an early-adopter and are trying out the updated OS’s, let us know about your experience and whether you’ve experimented with MIDI over Bluetooth.
