PUC Wifi MIDI IN or OUT for iOS - Indiegogo Campaign

On Indiegogo here.

The holy grail for iOS MIDI.  I hope it supports MIDI sysex.

Update2: I heard back from PUC on Facebook and it will support MIDI In or Out.  It looks like it will be configurable.  Striking out the first Update below so there is no confusion.  MIDI Out on the iPad is supported so you can use this for wifi control of your synths - think sequencers, synth template editors, and other controllers. We'll find out about MIDI sysex support hopefully soon.

via PUC on the Facebook thread: "Actually the PUC can serve as either a MIDI input or output from iOS. I'm going to pass along your SysEx details to the engineers that can let us both know how big the byte packet can be without causing other issues. Might take me a couple of days to get the answer, we're at DISRUPT in San Francisco this week."


Update:  I'm only seeing one MIDI port and based on the video and image below it looks like it's MIDI In only for iOS devices.  No MIDI Out for iOS.  If that is indeed the case, this will not work for using your iPad to control your synths - no editors, sequencers, controllers, etc. I left a comment on their Facebook page here. My first comments were before I realized MIDI Out didn't appear to be supported. Feel free to leave a comment there so they can gauge interest.

"The PUC is a wireless MIDI interface designed specifically for iOS devices.
PUC allows you to wirelessly connect any MIDI device (keyboard, DJ controller, drum pad, floor pedal controllers, etc.) directly to your iPad.
PUC can also work with any platform that supports a MIDI connection over WiFi.

"We are changing the future of MIDI technology- and we want you to be part of the movement. With your help, we’re creating a unique solution that will revolutionize an entire industry.

The Vision

When Zivix was developing the proprietary wireless MIDI technology for their award winning JamStik™, we saw the need for "legacy" MIDI gear screaming for the ability to connect wirelessly to iOS apps. Sure, there are a number of gadgets with more wires to tether your gear down with, but "mobile" devices should be just that - mobile. After a couple of hardware and software tweaks, the extracted design’s container got a mobile makeover and the PUC was born! Now everything that has a MIDI port can easily connect to your iPad, iPhone, Mac, and compatible PC.

The PUC

The PUC is a wireless MIDI interface designed specifically for iOS devices. The PUC allows you to wirelessly connect any MIDI device (keyboard, DJ controller, drum pad, floor pedal controllers, etc.) directly to your iPad. PUC can also work with any platform that supports a MIDI connection over WiFi.

The PUC communicates directly to the iPad via WiFi directly as a device, no "host" WiFi network is necessary. PUC uses an open standard for CoreMIDI over WiFi. Once your legacy MIDI signals are translated into CoreMIDI by the PUC, any CoreMIDI compatible app can recognize it.
