Instruments Korg 01/wfd
- An older MIDI keyboard (with sounds). No knobs/sliders for live sound editing. M-Audio Oxygen 49
- A USB keyboard controller (no sounds). Has knobs/sliders so I can edit sounds. I've had this for just about a year. Great with the Camera Connection Kit (CCK) and the iPad. I often bring it in to work and practice. Yamaha Motif-Rack XS
- Rack mount synth based on Motif series. I got it at the beginning of the year and have been having a great time with it. Roland JV-1080
- Another rack mount.MIDI Interfaces iRig MIDI
- I ended up not using this very much. But I have it just in case. It is definitely a good little device, just haven't needed it. Camera Connection Kit (CCK)
- This is what I've used just about this whole year. I hook it up to the M-Audio USB keyboard and I have a complete, 100% portable take anywhere, play anywhere device. iConnectMIDI
- I just bought this three weeks ago and it is absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Brings together all of my equipment (USB, iPad, MIDI, computer), allowing them to talk to one another. I can now use the Korg to play sounds on the Yamaha Rack and use an iPad app with knobs/sliders (something the Korg lacks) to control various aspects of the sound in real-time. How cool is that? With the iConnectMIDI I can now easily connect all of these devices together. I've already used it twice in live situations. I no longer need to bring my laptop, which I am very happy about. Now that I have this equipment talking to one another, I am learning how to use Genome Sequencer (for iPad).
I have no audio interface at the moment. One of the things I still need to get. I'd like to use the iPad for recording and MIDI at the same time. I'm keeping my eye on the Roland Duo-Capture EX
as a possibility. So I'm still trying to figure out what to do for audio. But MIDI/Keyboard-wise I think I have covered.
