Forum Information

Dear users, I have decided to phase out the posting on the forums on this website and move any discussions over to this private facebook group. While the forums were great 10 years ago, they are now difficult to maintain due to constant spam. I spend most of my time just cleaning them up, rather than interacting. This, combined with finding it difficult to directly communicate with other users through several different social media platforms, I have decided to consolodate it all to one group where people can chat with me, ask questions and jibber jabber with other users on a regular basis. I will not make the forums offline as there is a wealth of content, but posting has now been disabled. Thanks to all those who have contributed over the years, and I'll see you over on the Facebook group! -Tom

the ipad communicates via either a usb addon (camera kit/docking thing) or via wifi and uses either midi or osc. So it should be possible. If using midi you would need either a midi over ip tool for the pc (this is built in to the mac) or an actual midi port on the ipad connected to the midi port on your sound interface.
OSC is designed to work across a network so that's easier.

www.humatic.de/htools/touchdaw/man_midi.htm (solution for touchdaw but also contains links to a number of midi over network software packages)

if going the other way, you need to check the synth software on the ipad works with virtual midi/osc/real midi

I'm trying to sync my Nexus 7 tablet to use as a midi controller for Traktor. It's extremely complicated and it doesn't just happen. Even with a USB cord.

I had to download and install three pieces of software, collect hidden ip addresses and find a Windows-please video to figure it out. (plenty of ipad videos to wade through) And TouchOSC seems to only grudgingly include Windows on it's bare-bones website. Of course, these things are smoove and easy with a Mac.

D'oh! :pinch: hexler.net/software/touchosc
