Recommended MIDI interfaces

 

Wireless:

Yamaha MD-BT01

Wired:

Roland UM-ONE MKII + Apple CCK USB3

Note that wireless and wired connections can be used at the same time, so you can connect to your iPad wirelessly while having a wired connection with your laptop.

 

So using HX Stomp MIDI controller and HX Edit simultaneously is not only possible, but very practical!

I just purchased and downloaded this.

 

But whenever I try an OPEN-IN to install the preset in M D  nothing happens. 

 

On iPad Air 2 latest iOS. Latest MD PRO

 

How do I load this file into MIDI DESIGNER ?

i've got the file in both my DropBox folder on iPad AND iCloud 

 

Hi, d0dtenning! Thank you for your support, really appreciated!

 

So, were you finally able to load the file from dropbox or iCloud?

 

Personal note: I really need to document some procedures like this, to make things easier.

Yes, Ed - I have moved this topic to the Promote Your Patches section as you suggested. This is a useful template/utility and since you are understandably selling it this properly belongs in the new section.

 

Thanks!

I bought the template yesterday.

Quite tricky to get MidiDesigner to load it, I'd suggest a brief tutorial for new users...

Anyway, I got it running, in the end.

I have two questions:

- How is the Favs page supposed to work? It seems nothing can be edited, only a credit page?

- On my 4th generation iPad I get frequent 'possible memory issue' alert. Maybe reducing the number of pages may help. Would it be possible to have a 'light' version? Say, without Presets page, just to see if it runs smoothly. I believe the edit should be very easy...

Hi Giatur! Thank you for your purchase.

 

- The Favs page is the only one where you need to operate in Edit Mode, just to change the label and the Program Change associated with each button.

- The 'possible memory issue' shouldn't be really an issue unless you're running other apps simultaneously. However, you can safely delete the Favs pages, to see if the performance gets improved with your iPad 4th. The rest of the pages are way more tricky to delete, as they inherits from the main one.

 

I need to improve the manuals but have been too busy lately with my daily life. Hope to find the time soon to keep improving!

Hi Ed,

good answer; when I read it first I thought 'should have guessed it before'.

But..... The layout is locked, and in order to unlock it I'm prompted to buy another module, Pack Extra Features #2. (from MidiDesigner, not from your layout)

Is it the intended behavior? In the other thread you wrote about the total cost of your solution, and no extra pack was mentioned.

It's not a lot of money, but it should be explained before since it's seems to be mandatory to use the Favs page.

Hope I'm missing something.

 

Thank you

Ok, 

since Ed is not nearby, here is what I found on this topic..... would someone be interested .....

The Fav page is locked (so it's mainly a credit page) and the only way I was able to UNLOCK it (and edit labels and Program Changes) was buying the extra modula Pack Extra Features #2.

It's 5.42 euros in Europe; not a big price, but it should be counted for the total cost of the layout.
