Miscellaneous Information
Important Note
This app works on iOS 6 and 7, with devices that have Bluetooth LE. These are the iPad3, 4, Air, and Mini, and the iPhone 4S and newer. Older devices *do not* have Bluetooth LE, and Apollo is not compatible. For the OS X version, Mountain Lion or Mavericks is required. Newer Macs support Bluetooth LE; for older Macs, try a USB Bluetooth LE adapter (we have had good luck with the IOGear GBU521). Please verify that your Mac supports Bluetooth LE if you wish to use the app. The OS X version of the app is free, and will alert you if Bluetooth LE is not available.

MIDI connections between iOS devices have been a continual problem; hardware MIDI adapters are expensive and bulky, while MIDI over WiFi introduces too much latency.

With Apollo, MIDI can be sent over Bluetooth wireless connections, eliminating hardware adapters, and providing much lower latency than is possible with WiFi. Apollo uses Bluetooth LE: this is supported by the iPad3 and newer, the iPad Mini, the iPhone 4s and newer, and recent Mac desktop and laptop computers.

** Important ** Apollo is not compatible with the iPad1 and 2, and the iPhone4 and earlier. Please make sure that your device supports Bluetooth LE.

Install the app on two iOS devices, select an "A" endpoint for one, and a "B" endpoint for the other. Press the search button on both, and a Bluetooth connection will be established. After connecting, MIDI messages sent to Apollo running on one device will be forwarded to the other -- and these messages can then be redirected to synthesizer or sequencer apps.

In addition to MIDI connections between iOS devices, Apollo can also be used to connect to Mac desktop and laptop computers. Recent iMacs and MacBooks support Bluetooth LE; for older Macs, a USB Bluetooth adapter may be required. The OS X version of Apollo will be available in the Mac app store shortly.

I set everything up as indicated in the video, but it kept saying no connection.

i have a 2012 model MacBook Pro (9,1) and an iPad (3rd Generation)

after choosing A on the iPad I hit connect on Mac and iPad and it would say connected for a few seconds, then it would change back to no connection.

please help.
