    Default Connection Question

    Hey Guys and Gals! Fellow DJ's!

    I have a question

    My current setup looks like this: photo.jpg

    But now i want to go for a similar but different approach Aka my new project!

    I want to replicate my setup but with iPads running TouchOSC.

    The problem i have run into his how i will go about connecting 4-5 iPads to my computer to run traktor with.

    I currently have a Audio 8 behind my setup that is connecting the mixer to traktor if that helps.

    Please help me out

    why would you want to only run ipads and loose the tactile feeling?

    A camera connection kit, 2 USB to midi leads and 2 midi to midi adapters per iPad
    You could connect via wifi but I wouldn't rely on it tbqh
    Another option is to buy a dock add on for each iPad, to add midi connectivity, like the IODock.

    You could always just have separate pages on the iPad in TouchOSC or Lemur. I personally run my iPad to my computer over WiFi. Occasionally I'll use 2 iPads over WiFi, but you need to be sure that the midi channels are different. Latency has never been a problem though.

    As someone who has used an iPad in his setup though, I'd advise you to stick with a physical mixer. I have been switching between the iPad and a real mixer for quite some time and I still feel that while the iPad can sometimes do more, it also is better at supplementing a mixer than being a mixer.

    I had issues with midi over wifi. If I were going to run multiple iPads I would probably go with the I/O dock.

    If cost wasn't a factor I agree, the IOdock would be good. Has anyone here ever used it though? Hows latency on it?

    Thanks for the replies! I will be sure to check out IODock.

    And yeah, ive been debating whether to have a physical mixer or not... But ive gone thru 16 different setups in the last 4 years and so far ive loved the External mixer more than anything, so ill most likely stick with my ddm4000

    And is it possible to run the ipads straight into my computer thru the Apples Standard USB Cable? Just a question
