Mike Keller in PC World:
I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight one of the great new features of 4.2 that seems to have slipped under the radar. I’m referring to a little something called MIDI.
MIDI? Seriously? He’s right that no one is talking about it.
The iPhone and iPad have already gained some attention as music creation tools (if only in novelty), but I believe serious musicians may now start to recognize iOS as a real studio tool. The large touch screen of the iPad makes it a pretty powerful (and extremely flexible) controller. It will be interesting to see what developers come up with using the iPhone’s accelerometer and gyroscope as MIDI input.
Stranger things have happened.
