Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video The iRig MIDI interface by IK Multimedia, part of iPad Music Production: Inputs Mics and MIDI.
Previously, we took a look at how to connect just about any type of MIDI device to your …iPad using the Apple Camera Connection Kit, and this involved taking a USB cable from …the device into the Camera Connection Kit, or if your device doesn't have a USB port, …getting a MIDI to USB converter, plugging that into the kit, and then plugging the kit …into your iPad. And while that works, it's not exactly an elegant solution. …So if you do a lot of MIDI recording, you'll be happy to know that a lot of products that …are coming to the market aimed squarely at getting MIDI devices connected to the iPad.…
One of those devices is the iRig MIDI. …This is a fully featured MIDI device. …It features in and out ports for MIDI, as well as a thru port in case you want to send …your MIDI sequences to an external device. …What I really like about this is it also has a power port on the side, so you can keep …it plugged in via USB, which will keep your iPad charged, something you can't do with the …Apple Camera Connection Kit. …
