Hello from Cracow; for many years I used to be "so-called" "akoustik piano player". Now I feel to change something, and my friend suggested me to use iPad based rig. What I have now? iPad from 2018 (6th generation) with Korg's Module Pro, MKSensations, Neo_Soul Keys, and Ravenscroft 275 piano Studiologic SL88 (not Grand) M-Audio Axiom 25 (which I want to use as the main controller for program changes, filters, and other stuff) old module from Alesis, S4, just for a couple of sounds, and that's all (plus small mixer)
I plan to use exclusively Korg's Module Pro for overall use (I'm excluding Ravenscroft's for only piano-sound gigs) Now's the Time for my question; I connected Axiom, and SL88 to a hub, then it goes to camera connection kit, and iPad gets input from both. but I want to get Midi from both keyboards to S4 connected to SL88 (pure midi connection) Is the MidiFire capable of those connections? Get back and forth from keyboards to iPad, and then to send data to S4 (pitches, CC, program changes, etc)?.
MidiFire can definitely route between the SL88 and Axiom. To add S4 into this you need one of two things:
1. Be able to configure the SL88 to forward all MIDI events received on the USB to the DIN port, sort of like a USB->DIN MIDI thru. I have no idea if the SL88 has this ability.
2. Or, if 1) is not an option, a USB to DIN MIDI cable and connect the S4 into the USB hub using that cable. There are many models of this cable available and they are relatively inexpensive. The cheapest ones probably don't do sysex but as long as you're not planning on that, just about any of these cables would do the job. Branded examples are Roland UM-ONE, CME U2-MIDI, iConnect mio
