    Default Cheapest way to connect my ipad2 to midi-usb?

    Ok since alot of apps are doing core-midi now i want to jump on it.

    I have an ipad 2, the apple camera adapter and a midi to usb cable

    so it goes like this

    Ipad2>Cam Adapter>Usb to midi cable>????>Macbook

    so what is the cheapest missing piece of my puzzle (some sort of i/o?)
    or is there something else i can connect from the cam adapter straight to the mac?

    thanks.

    you need another usb to midi adaptor I think!

    it's a slightly weird way of doing things tbh though...you're basically converting usb to midi and then midi back to usb.

    Correct ..... and 2 female midi to midi adapters to connect the midi cables if you don't want to snip the midi connectors off and join the wires yourself.

    does TouchOSC work with a midi cable from the iPad??

    why not use a usb to usb from the iPad camera connection?

    I've used MidiTouch and TouchOSC with the camera kit and USB to midi leads.

    AFAIK that only works with a jailbroken iPad and a Cydia USB network app.

    Yeah it does

    but it has to be usb to midi.

    and midi over usb only works on ipads

    Hey Hippie, I'm getting some packet loss with using TouchOSC over wifi, can you explain more or send me a link to what I can do with these Cydia USB network app?
    I have a jailbroken iPad 1, a camera connection kit but no midi-to-usb cable
    Do I need this cable or I can do with usb-usb cable and Cam. Conn. Kit alone ?

    I read it in this thread on the TouchOSC forums
    http://hexler.net/forum/viewthread/117/

    The USB to midi leads I'm using are only $5 each (delivered) on eBay so I've not tried using MyWi or any of the other apps that allow you to send network data via USB tbh.
