What MIDI devices are supported?

The basic Fairlight App supports Core MIDI, so it can receive MIDI events via WiFi or (for the iPad) many MIDI USB devices via the Apple Camera Connection Kit. See the Live MIDI Help for details.

Any device that sends Core MIDI via MIDI Bluetooth Low Energy (MIDI BLE) will also work.

Some devices that we have tested with the Camera Connection Kit, and we know work, are:

  • AKAI LPK25 keyboard
  • ESI Midimate II
  • M-Audio Oxygen 8
  • Cakewalk UM-1G

Note that due to WiFi latency on a busy network, we recommended that for real-time performance or recording you should use a dedicated WiFi network with just your iOS device(s) and the Mac.
