Hey there everyone how are you going?
If you have a Lightning-based iPad, then the Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter.
Also ios 7 has a more robust MIDI set-up
I can recommend Genome. Steppolyarp is also great fun. There is also Brainwave, but I have no experience on that.
Xsynthesizer is pretty boss for me!
+1 on Xsynthesizer - I love the ‘life’ morph on the sequencer - and free
Ooo what’s life morph @KrisM? I have yet to explore the app entirely
I bought a 1st gen. iConnectMIDI that came with a mini USB-to-30 pin cable, then I got myself an iPad Mini Retina. I also got a lightning-to-30 pin flex adapter cable off eBay. Yesterday I tried to hook up my OP-1 with the iPad but it didn’t work. None of the apps (Korg Gadget, Waldorf Nave, DM-1, etc.) was receiving MIDI info from the OP. I tried connections thru the iConnectMIDI and also OP-1 - iPad direct, all to no avail. Now, I’m sure that it’s either me doing the whole thing wrong, or the lightning-to-30 pin adapter is defective, or maybe it’s the wrong cable and I should have bought the lightning-to-USB camera kit. Any suggestions or advice on this will be much appreciated. Sorry for all the dumbness, it’s just how I function when it comes to technical issues.
Some of the ebay special fail at midi… you are best to go with Apple products for tried and proven cables. I recommend also camera connect cable.
Try controlling the OP-1 with the computer via the ICM. as a metal check.
Also I will try the my icm with my retina mini tomorrow and tell you if it works with can converter cable.
Thanks a lot dimi3 ! I’m almost sure it’s the copycat cable… looks like buying cheapo stuff costs me more in the end… lesson learned! Speaking of original Apple cables and products: is it the lightning-to-30 pin adapter or the lighting-to-USB flex cable that I should get? Or is either one fine? I’d go for the light.-30 pin as I have the 30 pin-mini USB that came with the iCM.
Either is fine, but I like the flex only because that is a lot of tension on the connector. So I recommend flexible.
Thanks again @dimi3 , I’ll grab an original Apple lightning-to-30 pin cable then.
thanks for all your responses.
Yeah Verified! works genome on an ipad mini retina, ICM+ funny cable with 30pin to lightening adpter from Apple does work.
