iRig MIDI is an ultra-compact standard Core MIDI interface for iOS that connects any MIDI compatible device to the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. IRig MIDI connects MIDI keyboards, drum machines, drum pads, pedal boards and more to an iOS device to control not only the included SampleTank FREE but also a world of MIDI-compatible apps such as Garage Band. You can also use iOS apps to control external MIDI equipment such as sound modules, DAWs or lighting systems right from the mobile device. iRig MIDI is the only compact iOS MIDI interface sporting 3 MIDI ports: IN/OUT/THRU. These connect to any standard MIDI jacks using the included 2 x 1.6m/5.2' cables. iRig MIDI also has 2 LEDs for displaying the MIDI activity on the IN and OUT ports. IRig MIDI also exclusively provides a micro USB port - with included cable - that connects to any standard USB power supply source so that the iOS device can stay fully powered during long sessions. An iOS device as a synthesizer/instrument There are many instrument apps for the iPhone/iPad, and it's fun to play them on their multi-touch screen. But this is impractical when it comes to using them as a live instrument. iRig MIDI has the ability to use any MIDI keyboard controller (from home digital pianos to advanced synthesizers or computer controllers) as an input source an iOS device to easily control instrument apps in a familiar way. The included SampleTank for iOS also offers a high-quality mobile alternative to traditional software and hardware sound modules and has been studied from the ground up to work as a live performance instrument where it can access as a vast 750 MB library of over 400 ready-to-use sounds. An iOS device as a drum machine/sequencer/recorder Connecting one of these devices to the iRig MIDI input allows the hardware device to play an iOS instrument app or to use the rhythm patterns of an external device with an iOS app as a drum and groove sound module.

that is the case of the iRig midi, the main feature, which is the one that I have been haunting and
looking forward to have is an interface that allowed me to use and charge my ipad with a midi device
simultaneously, I bought this one as it is one of it's main features, since I knew it was coming:
- I bought headphones to USB adaptors.
- Midi to USB adapter, as the device I want to use it's a USB mini keyboard and a launchpad.
- The headphone input adapters bought were a waste as this one uses the mini one. I used the ones provided,
with a midi to USB adapter.
- Even if I use the supplied keyboard doesnt seem to charge anything and my charge gets lost instead of
On the top with the adapters I feel I have been throwing good money to the bad. I dont understad why it doesnt
charge. Besides the grip to the ipad is so flimsy in the 30 pin connector and easy to pull that I had to put a small piece of adhesive tape, the slightest move of the cable cause the device to separate. It hasnt worked for me.
Support was timely, polite and knowledgeable. If it the device would plug in more securely like a regular 30 pin apple usb cable does I would have simply replaced it. Now I am undecided on replacing it or just letting go of the idea of using midi with the iPad. I hope they revise the product to correct the issue with plugging and possibly add some quality control testing prior to leaving the factory to remove the defective units prior to shipment. It may have waisted an hour or so of my time troubleshooting and dropping the return off at UPS, Amazon is the one loosing out in the end on these kinds of situations as they paid for shipping to me (with prime) and paid to return it.
Don't go out like that. Buy something else.
