Hello. Saw this on IK forum "I connect my blueboard to the blueboard app on the iPad, then route the midi out of the iPad via the Midibridge app through a wifi-router and into my windows laptop via the rptMidi freeware. Then i can control whatever i want on the laptop. Works ok when you have set it up, but is potentially quite unstable." I require this facility to send CC's to Tripleplay on windows 10 and wondered if this is possible using this method. Thank you.
I think the issue will be getting the events from rtpMIDI into the TriplePlay software. I have TriplePlay for mac (not windows, but assume it is similar) and I think it is configured to only receive events from a directly connected FTP unit, but I could be completely wrong about that. I don't see any MIDI options in the TriplePlay software preferences. This would be something you would need to check into.
Essentially the signal flow you would want would be something like:
BlueBoard -> Bluetooth -> BlueBoard app (iOS) -> MidiBridge -> wifi router -> rtpMIDI on windows -> TriplePlay application
Whether you can tell TriplePlay to react to CC's coming in from the rtpMIDI network port directly (or indirectly via virtual loopback) is the potential problem that I don't know about solving. If it can't be solved then this isn't going to work.
NB. There is also a BlueBoard firmware upgrade that makes it BT MIDI compliant negating the need for the BlueBoard app, but I would not worry about that just yet.
Thanks Nic. My actual problem is that I bought Blueboard not realising that there was no windows app support even though my tablet runs BT 4.0 LE because it uses Core midi and there is no iOS version of Tripleplay software, so maybe the firmware upgrade is the way to go but I would be prepared to try the midi bridge route.
