MIDI with iPad Air 2 and MIDI keyboards (No computer)
« on: May 29, 2017, 09:08:41 AM »
Hi!  I'm about to purchase "Set List Maker," an in-app purchase or two as needed, and the iRig MIDI 2 interface.  I want to send patch changes to my keyboards from hyperlinks in "Set List Maker."  I will NOT be using a computer.  Is the iRig MIDI 2 the only hardware I'll need, other than my iPad Air 2 and keyboards?

Thank you!

Does at least one of your keyboards have MIDI Thru port? If so, you can chain them together from the iRig to one keyboard to the next keyboard. If not, you'll need either a MIDI splitter after the MIDI interface, or a MIDI interface with two ports, like this one:

Yes, I'll be chaining the iRig into a Yamaha CP33 (has a MIDI Thru) and then into a Yamaha MX49.  I know I may need an in-app purchase and I will read the documentation and setup instructions.  But hardware-wise, is this all I'll need for sending patch changes via Set List Maker?
