You will need to make up a special lead from the arduino's USB to the right pins on the connector. I don't know off hand what these are numbered.

I found the  30 pins connector map here http://www.allpinouts.org/index.php/Apple_iPod,_iPad_and_iPhone_dock
I'll give a try.

Thanks. I'll take a look at Leonardo.
Also, is there a way to avoid even the camera connector and plug directly into the iphone with the 30 pins connector?
I would prefer to build my own interface to the iphone even if that means additional components for Arduino.
3  Using Arduino / Audio / Arduino MIDI to play Garage Band on the iPhone/iPAD on: November 28, 2012, 07:57:07 am
Hi,
I'm building a drum kit and I'm now able to play the sounds on my Windows PC through the Serial to MIDI converter running on the PC.
I would like now to do the same using my iPhone 4 with Garage Band instead of a PC.

Garage Band accepts MIDI-in, and devices like the iRIG Keys mini keyboard is provided with a simple cable to connect the keyboard to the iPhone to play the sounds of any MIDI compatible iPhone app.

I'm wondering why I shouldn't be able to do the same.
I can probably use something like Sparkfun iPOD 30 pins male connector (which pin??), but I don't know what to do on the Arduino side.

Do I need a MIDI Shield?
Is my Arduino UNO USB connector enough?

I don't think you need to play 30 different sounds at once, unless you have 30 hands to play 30 different percussion pads!
I'm assuming you can play 2 sounds =2 hands at once.
You should additionally consider that when you hit a percussion the sound could overlap the tail of the sample that is currently played (if any).
I never wrotecode for DSPs, but that's probably what you need to do.

And this board could be the right one: http://www.openmusiclabs.com/2011/08/arduino-audio-codec-shield/


If you write good code, please share.

I'm building a drum kit that I will connect via MIDI to a PC for the generation of sounds.
If you find a good solution, my drum kit could become a stand alone device!
