aww man this is so close to working perfectly for me but I keep getting lag spikes, every 20 - 60 seconds. In between those it runs at a fantastic 3ms latency :/. Wonder if it's the pc or the ipad

It should work for any iOS Device running iOS 5 or maybe 4. Whenever they added CoreMIDI. It is basically just using the network connection that CoreMIDI makes.

CoreMIDI came into iOS way back in 4.2. I've found that the rtpMIDI has some bad lag issues with PCs; I'm not sure if it's the networking stack in the PC, or if it's rtpMIDI itself. They're trying to emulate CoreMIDI support from Apple, and some piece of the pipeline is not working the way I'd like it to.

I've had better luck with DSMI connecting to PCs, but neither one has matched what I get when connecting to a Mac (and actually, DSMI on a Mac seems to be just a little bit faster than CoreMIDI, but I normally use a CCK wired connection, which is the best I've found).
