NAMM: iConnectivity Unveils iConnectMIDI

Winter NAMM 2011: iConnectivity Unveils iConnectMIDI, a sophisticated MIDI Interface that integrates computers and MIDI devices like keyboards, drum pads, and synthesizers with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch products.
Calgary, Alberta, Canada - January 13, 2011- iConnectivity, a leading innovator of modern MIDI interfaces, introduces the first professional grade, high-speed MIDI interface designed specifically to have plug and play capability between any MIDI controller type device while connected to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch iOS devices using CoreMIDI.

iConnectMidi users will be able to take advantage of a myriad of music apps that enable a user to play, record, and jam. Simply plug in iConnectMIDI into the iOS device like an iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. You can use this versatile connectivity device with your personal computer in the loop and run your favorite MIDI program there.

'We believe the success of the control surface in the iPad and iPod will create a new generation of music makers. We wanted to be the first to open the door to the other wise closed system to get your music out of the iPad. Both beginners and professionals will be at ease with the complete plug and play strategy and the negligible latency.” says iConnectivity CEO Michael Loh. Further, Mr. Loh states, “In opening up the platforms of MIDI and iPads and computers though one device, we want to engage developers to think even more broadly about what their applications can do in the future, the exponentially growing number of music apps is exciting. That being said we had some requests to add lighting control so opened the door for DMX lighting control with the use of small accessory dongle. All of this and more is possible because we are in full support of the new CoreMIDI framework introduced in iOS 4.2.'
