iOS son yıllarda bir müzik yapma platformu olarak olgunlaştı, ama isteyen bizler kanca-up için gerçek MIDI kontrolör böyle bir iPad veya iPhone için klavye veya davul makinesi gibi genellikle cihaz başına kablo ve adaptörler birkaç kullanmak gerekir. Bu küçük bir sorun, ancak belirgin un-Apple hissediyor biri. The PUC iOS MIDI interface by Zivix promises to free iOS music-makers from this hassle by enabling a MIDI controller to connect to an iOS device wirelessly.
İlk bakışta, the PUC may be accused of offering a solution where there is no problem; hepsinden sonra, what’s the big deal with simply plugging in your MIDI interface? But I’ve knocked my MacBook Pro and iPad off the table enough times to realize that a wireless MIDI interface could be useful. It’s also nice to reduce the number of wires in the studio where possible.
The PUC I tested arrived with a basic instruction booklet, a couple of AA batteries (though it also has a Micro USB port for backup power), and a standard 5-pin MIDI cable. The PUC is marketed as an iOS device, but PC and OS X drivers are also in the works, and there’s an OS X beta driveravailable for download Zivix dan.
A company rep informed me that the two AA batteries are good for up to 15 hours of continuous use. While I didn’t test this claim, I did use it over separate sessions for a few hours each without it running out of juice. It measures 7.6 cm (3 içinde) in diameter and 3.2 cm (1.25 içinde) tall.
To get started using the PUC, you’ll first need to download the free PUC companion iOS app. This runs in the background and interfaces between your iPad and the PUC. You’ll also need to be running at least iOS 6, and using an iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch with a Lighting Adaptor. Ek olarak, the MIDI interface needs to be packing a real 5-pin MIDI output, and not just a USB output, as is seen on many modern MIDI controllers.
Switching on the PUC using the power button on top presents some pleasant flashy green and red lights, and launching the companion iOS app then walks you through the steps of creating a new Wi-Fi network, over which the PUC and iOS device communicate. This obviously means that you won’t be connected to your wireless home network on the iOS device, so there’ll be no web browsing, social media updates or checking emails as you jam.
Initial setup complete, I connected the PUC to my inexpensive M-Audio MIDI Keyboard with the supplied MIDI cable and fired up Garageband on the iPad. The keyboard immediately connected to iOS Garageband and worked perfectly.
It’s really very simple to use and there was no lag or issues of any kind during my time testing it. In particular, the virtual Piano in Garageband worked great, and it was nice to have a few less wires to worry about while playing. Though I only tested it with Garageband, PÜK tüm Core MIDI uyumlu iOS müzik yapma uygulamaları ile uyumludur.
Tümünde, Orada PUC tartışırken hakkında heyecanlanmak için çok fazla değil - ama bu karşı hiçbir işareti var. PÜK çok iyi ve en az zahmetle işini yapar basit bir araçtır. Yani MIDI basitleştirmek arıyorsanız / iPad kurulum, o zaman önerilir.
