ConcertinaXL and EnglitinaXL updates for iPad 3
Posted 31 March 2012 - 02:37 PM
The current version works fine on the iPad and iPad 2, but had issues as a result of the new high-resolution touch screen digitizer on the iPad 3 delivering fractional coordinates to my touch detect logic. I've verified the fix on an iPad 3.

The iPad makes a fantastic midi source. There are a couple of ways to this. Firstly, (i havn't used this) you can use the camera connection kit available from apple stores. This can then somehow be connected to your midi concertina.
I have downloaded your app, and I was wondering if you could answer the following question. Will the IPad act as a midi sound generator? I was thinking of buying a midi concertina and wondering if the sound you supplied for the app could be accessed. Thanks, JGGUNN
The method I use with great succes is the iRig midi interface. It is a small device that plugs into the bottom of your ipad or iphone, and has interface cable with standard midi plug to go in your concertina.
Once connected you have a wealth of apps to use that will see the midi input from your concertina. The app requirement is that they use something called Coremidi to see the interface and midi concertina. If the app supports coremidi it will work with your concertina.
There are literally dozens of apps that work with a mdiconcertina set up this way. Some like thumbjam work in background mode so you can play along in apps like tunebook with ABC tunes.
Garage band, Thumbjam, Animoog, Sample tank, 50 In one piano, and a wealth of other synths and keyboards will work. You can sample sounds in garageband and play them back on your concertina, layer them, lay down beats you name it.
Thumbjam is superb with a midi concertina as the sound samples are such high quality.
I use the S- wave midi concertina, getting the irigmidi device has added a whole new lease on life to it.
Instead of using the ipad, sometimes i use my iphone and clip it on top of the concertina and bluetooth to my amplifier. Totally cable free midi concertina! Same apps.
Lastly there is zero latency with this setup.
