Apple’s products traditionally are popular with musicians, film makers and other artistic folk. MIDI is the standard in digital media – so far, it was not supported officially on the iOS.

CreateDigitalMusic now reports the following:

Now, the hardware picture is clear. The Core MIDI framework appears to support two avenues for MIDI:

1. WiFi MIDI, via Apple’s own (apparently unique) wireless implementation, which should allow communication with other Apple handhelds and Macs, but likely not other devices. (WiFi is a common standard, but the way MIDI is transmitted over it is not necessarily so.)

2. USB MIDI support for class-compliant devices, using the iPad Camera Connection Kit’s USB adapter.

With that, we can expect devices to perform a variety of control functions in music production – stay tuned for cool products as we hear about them!
