This is the same guy who made the MC-20 controller for Korg iMS-20. He has made quite a lot of these one-off controllers for software synths, and occasionally he sells them. Start saving up now, because the parts alone cost as much as a Moog synth!
Jay Coggin was up to some interesting MIDI hacking over the weekend, with iOS MIDI over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
The goal of this project is similar to the WiFi MIDI device, Missing Link, providing wireless MIDI connections for old MIDI gear that doesn't have it. Jay describes his project as being particularly useful for bringing connections for lots of different gear.
