Hi! I'm currently trying to create an iPad-based live setup, and I'm wondering if MidiBridge (+FreEWI?) will solve my main issue. I'm using an iPad Air 2 with Korg Gadget, Moog Modular 15 etc, usually routed through AUM. I have a midi-keyboard connected through iConnectAudio2+, and a Korg NanoKey Studio through bluetooth. What I would like to achieve is to play 3-4 synths layered on top of each other, played from the keyboard, but at the same time control the synth parameters separately, from NanoKey. (And maybe even play yet another synth from the NanoKey keyboard.) Would I have to route the main keyboard to multiple midi-channels to make this happen (and can that be done with MidiBridge), and can I route the NanoKey controller to those same synths at the same time? Someone must have tried this. I would just like to know if MidiBridge is the app I need, or if I should look for something else?
Seems you need to route and clone channels from your main controller to the various synths and then dynamically remap the nanokey's channel to 'point to' the synth you wish to control and play as you go.
I'd suggest you start off with simple routings and then you can delve deeper with scenes so you could (for example) switch between synth combinations (main or nanokey) using buttons on either controller.
Just post here for extra help with this as you go. Be aware that each 3rd party apps' MIDI implementation will differ so there *might* be some gymnastics involved in getting it right, but generally speaking it should all be doable.
Wow! Thanks for the fast response. Makes me even more sure that MidiBridge is for me. I will download tonight and start programming. I'm thinking I will set up one mix scene on the NanoKey, and then various sound edit scenes for the most important parameters. The main keyboard controller will just send on one midi-channel which will therefore need to be "cloned" as you say. I'll post something about my experiences ones I get it up and running. Thanks again!
