Secret Base Design has released version 1.4 of MIDI Control, an app for for iOS that provides keyboard and drum pad interfaces that can connect to multiple synthesizer apps running in the background on an iOS device, or to external MIDI equipment and DAWs.
By using Virtual MIDI, you can play more than one app at at time; play a bass line with one app using the lower keyboard, while you play a lead with a different app on the upper keyboard.
MIDI Control allows you to mix and match with the whole range of iOS music apps at once. Play Animoog with Magellan, Sunrizer with BS-16i, or Cassini, Arctic Keys, and Thumbjam, all at once. You can even take advantage of the synths and samples from GarageBand and SampleTank.
The keyboards also rotate around, allowing two people to play using one device.
In addition to the iOS synths, you can also connect to external equipment using CoreMIDI or DSMI.
For musicians who use sheet music, the app allows you to import PDF files. Keep track of music, transcriptions, song lyrics and set lists, right under your finger tips while you play.
This version has been updated to handle multiple Virtual MIDI connections, Retina display on the iPad and iPhone 5.
