iConnect MIDI2+

iConnect MIDI2+ 

ConnectMIDI2+ is not only a 2 in 2 out MIDI interface for PC, MAC, and iOS, but it also introduces two exciting new features to enable musicians to professionally integrate more than one computer or an iOS device into their music making environment: allowing more than one computing device to access the same MIDI device at the same time and audio pass through - all for under $100!

The first of these technologies allows for more than one computing device to access the same MIDI resources. This is useful in many ways such as, sending midi from a controller or synth 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.    

iConnectMIDI2+ also features Audio Pass-through. This patent pending technology is integral to using iOS, and multiple computing devices (Mac, PC, and iOS) in a professional environment by enabling the devices to pass not only MIDI data but also audio data from device to device. There are many practical applications for this technology, for example now musicians can use a DAW on their MAC or PC to control a virtual instrument or other music making program on their iOS or other computing device (PC, MAC, iOS) and send the MIDI data as well as audio data back to the DAW without extra cables, or signal degradation or additional analog to digital conversion.    

With all of this connectivity comes possibility and nearly endless options.iConnectivity’s Port Manager software for Mac, PC, and iOS allows the user complete control over how MIDI is routed, remapped and filtered to and from all devices connected to it.    

Don't forget our iPad and iPhone guide that can give you ideas for using your iOS device for making music!
