iPad MIDI connection continues the 80s theme in Apple’s aftermarket

The folks at Create Digital Music have provided further proof that the iPad is in fact for consumers and creators with a series of new tutorial videos.

Using the camera connector and a USB-MIDI adapter, CDM’s Peter Kirn uses several MIDI music devices from the 80s in conjunction with different apps to create beats, synthesize tracks and hash out keyboard scores on the tablet.

It’s only a matter of time before somebody makes a MIDI version of AmpliTube’s iRig guitar adapter, but until then techno musicians can take solace in the fact that the iPad camera connector does indeed work with the old MIDI sequencer you inherited from your Uncle B.

    That’s pretty neato, since I’m a big music fan/producer in-a-sense. I use programs like Fruity Loops and Reason 5 to produce hi-def sounding music and also use Pro Tools to audio record vocals onto my beats and instrumentals. This would come in handy to be on the go and make music and whatever else. Since I’m a big piano fan myself :)

    I really like this. I am a music education major and we have had a class on this before. The idea of using MIDI with an iPad is something that I think should be incorporated in the classrooms. It looks very simple and would really help out.
