iRig MIDI is an ultra-compact standard Core MIDI interface for iOS that connects any MIDI compatible device to the iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad®.

iRig MIDI connects MIDI keyboards, drum machines, drum pads, pedal boards and more to an iOS device to control not only the included SampleTank FREE* but also a world of MIDI-compatible apps such as GarageBand®. You can also use iOS apps to control external MIDI equipment such as sound modules, DAWs or lighting systems right from the mobile device.

iRig MIDI is the only compact iOS MIDI interface sporting 3 MIDI ports: IN/OUT/THRU. These connect to any standard MIDI jacks using the included 2 x 1.6m/5.2' cables. iRig MIDI also has 2 LEDs for displaying the MIDI activity on the IN and OUT ports.

iRig MIDI also exclusively provides a micro USB port – with included cable – that connects to any standard USB power supply source so that the iOS device can stay fully powered during long sessions.

There are many ways to integrate iRig MIDI into a mobile rig for various types of musicians such as: keyboard players, producers, guitar/bass players and vocalists to name a few.

An iOS device as a synthesizer/instrument

There are many instrument apps for the iPhone/iPad, and it's fun to play them on their multi-touch screen. But this is impractical when it comes to using them as a live instrument. iRig MIDI has the ability to use any MIDI keyboard controller (from home digital pianos to advanced synthesizers or computer controllers) as an input source an iOS device to easily control instrument apps in a familiar way.

The included SampleTank for iOS also offers a high-quality mobile alternative to traditional software and hardware sound modules and has been studied from the ground up to work as a live performance instrument where it can access as a vast 750 MB library of over 400 ready-to-use sounds.

An iOS device as a drum machine/sequencer/recorder

Use iRig MIDI with drum machines, "MPC-style" pads and groove boxes. Connecting one of these devices to the iRig MIDI input allows the hardware device to play an iOS instrument app or to use the rhythm patterns of an external device with an iOS app as a drum and groove sound module. iRig MIDI also works as an easy-to-use MIDI recorder with the free iRig MIDI Recorder app.

Alternatively, producers can play MIDI rhythm patterns or MIDI sequences on their iOS device and use an external drum machine or any MIDI sound modules connected to the iRig MIDI output as sound modules.

Use a floor controller with guitar and vocal app

Connecting a MIDI floor controller to the input of iRig MIDI allows the user to control effects processing apps for guitar and bass such as AmpliTube or vocal processing apps such as VocaLive which will be updated soon to receive MIDI messages. This will allow the user to change presets or to use pedal controllers to operate wah or any type of continuous controller effects. This also enables keyboard players, DJs and other performing musicians to control iOS effects apps without taking their hands off of their instruments.

Advanced applications using MIDI thru

With the exclusive MIDI thru port of iRig MIDI, the user can create advanced rigs such as simultaneously using the iOS device and an external sound module as sound generators controlled by a single MIDI keyboard. Or record MIDI performances live using an external MIDI recording device such as a computer!
