The iPad Application implements a new kind of a MIDI-Master-Keyboard to be connected to your favorite Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).
Features of v2.6:
1.) Update due to legal issues
2.) Minor bug fixes
Features of v2.5:
1.) The Synthesizer includes now a Physically Modelled Piano
2.) A Velocity Slider has been added to support the Attack Simulation of the Emulated Piano
3.) The Synthesizer got a Brickwall Limiter to avoid "digital overs" -> The red Limiting Indicator (LIMIT) is located left of the Synthesizer Configuration Button
Features of v2.0:
1.) Support of iPad compatible external MIDI-Keyboards to be connected via the Camera Connection Kit (USB-Adapter)
a.) inHarmony maps the selected scale (e.g. g-minor) to the keyboards C-Major scale. Well, just use the white keys to play any scale.
b.) Set MIDI-Keyboard velocity to ON/OFF
c.) Set MIDI-Thru to ON/OFF to route the MIDI-Keyboard data directly into the connected Digital Audio Workstation
2.) Improved internal Synthesizer attack and release
Features of v1.5:
C-Major with 4 Note Chords (Sevenths)
g-Minor with 3 Note Chords (Triads) - MIDI-Configuration
a-Minor with 2 Note Chords (Dyads) - Synthesizer-Configuration
MIDI Master Keyboard:
First of all inHarmony is a new kind of a MIDI-Keyboard to be connected via WLAN or Bluetooth with your favorite Digital Audio Workstation either on Mac OSX or Windows (Bonjour for Windows and rtpMIDI must be installed).
External MIDI-Keyboard Support:
Connect an iPad compatible MIDI-Keyboard via the Camera Connection Kit (USB-Adapter). inHarmony maps all scales (e.g. g-minor) to the keyboard's C-Major scale. Well, just use the white keys to play any scale.
Learn more about the theory behind music by getting insights into the different scales (e.g. C-Major, g-Minor) and their related notes as well as chords.
1.) Mac OSX:
- Connect the iPad with the same WLAN as your Mac OSX computer. To reduce latencies it is recommended to setup an adhoc network. Furthermore, the latency can be minimized by connecting via Bluetooth.
- Start the MIDI setup tool: Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup.app
- Go to the menu "Window" and click on "Show Midi Window"
- Start inHarmony
- Click on Network
- Find your iPad in the Directory and click on Connect
- You need to install Apple's Bonjour for Windows as well as the free software rtpMIDI, which emulates CoreMidi on Windows: http://www.tobias-erichsen.de/rtpMIDI.html
- Please refer to the rtpMIDI tutorial for detailed installation and setup descriptions
