iConnectivity has announced the availability of iConnectMIDI2+, an interface which enables users to use their iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with their Mac/PC like a plugin, controller, and much more.
iConnectMIDI2+ is a multi-host interface that features iConnectivity’s unique multi-hosting and audio passThru technology.
iConnectMIDI2+’s multi-hosting capability allows for more than up to 2 computing devices to share the same interface as well as access and share MIDI resources over its 2 pairs of MIDI DINs and its 8 additional user configurable ports. This enables workflow such as, sending midi from a controller or synthesizer to DAW and an iOS device simultaneously, setting up redundancy in a live MIDI environment, sending MIDI from multiple computing devices to one another, and more.
As a part of its multi-hosting capabilities iConnectMIDI2+ also features audio passThru. This technology enables 2 computing devices (PC, MAC, iOS) to not only pass MIDI data but also act as an audio interface between them, seamlessly bridging each computing device into each other’s audio and MIDI environments. Now a synth running on a user’s iPad. iPod touch, or iPhone could behave as if it were a touch-controlled plug-in running inside a host DAW, Adventurous users can even use their Mac or PC as a slave to their iOS device. The iConnectMIDI2+ offers seamless integration in all directions.
In addition to its expanded connectivity iConnectMIDI2+ includes iConnectivity’s iConfig MIDI manager software for iOS, MAC and PC allowing the user complete control over how MIDI is routed, remapped and filtered to and from all devices connected to it.
