MIDI comes to iOS devices

That’s right, it’s exciting news for people like me all over the world. Information has just leaked that apple has implemented the MIDI standard in the next version of its iOS operating system for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touch’s. Apple allows you to send data over USB (via the camera connection kit) or over WiFi, which presents some very interesting opportunities (as long as there is no lag!)

It’s brilliant news, and although some say MIDI may be a dying standard I believe it’s seen a new lease of life on lower powered mobile devices such as these. I think it won’t be long before we see some really creative uses of the new API and I personally cannot wait to try developing with it! Below is a video showing how one developer has used the new API!
