iConnectMIDI Demo Video

iConnectivity has posted an elaborate demonstration of how to use their iConnectMIDI hardware to bring 5 USB-MIDI controllers into an iPad with iConnectMIDI via a USB Hub.

It is a cool video, but I can't tell what iConnectMIDI is actually doing in this scenario. Can't we do the same thing with just the powered USB Hub going into the iPad directly? Saving $180 in the process.

I asked iConnectivity that same question yesterday, but they didn't get back to me...

I use a powered USB hub with my 3 Korg nanoSeries controllers and a simple usb to midi interface cable to connect my Electribe to my iPad and it all works perfectly. You only need the usb to midi cable if you are using a controller or hardware device that doesn't have usb midi. You need, of course, the camera connection kit. Now this set up doesn't work on my iPod 3G as it doesn't recognize the camera connection kit.

This video highlights what's common between iConnectMIDI and the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, for sure. And additionally, one thing that the CCK does is that you can plug other, non-MIDI devices to it (like USB speakers). And that's great. Of course, iConnectMIDI goes beyond the--what should be a given--capability of connecting USB MIDI controllers, with its built-in MIDI DIN ports and multiple heterogenous connection to iOS, Mac, and PC computing devices. It is seamless interconnectivity and we think that's worthwhile. So if that's what you need, then we're happy to provide that piece of gear to you.
