My Macbook can establish a wifi midi network with my ipad2 and send/receive midi data from the ipad to the computer. There is also a program called rtpMIDI that lets you create this MIDI networkfrom a wondows pc. I am trying to figure out if its possible to create this wifi midi link without a computer, using a wifi module like roving networks for example. I’m almost certain the Mac is the host, so the roving networks would need to mimic a “midi wifi host”? If I could do this, then I could make any kind of musically instrument with an Arduino that creates midi commands, and sends them via wifi to an iOS device. Right now, my homemade instruments have to resort to sending the midi commands through the dock connector of the iOS device, with third party hardware, but a wireless midi connection would great! I know the ipad supports midi over wifi, I just don’t know if its possible to create this network with a standalone module like roving networks makes. I’ll sure appritiate hearing from anyone who is familiar with a wifi midi network.
Attached are photos of some musical instrents I’ve made.
