A wireless connection?

Post by andrew13 » Thu Oct 16, 2008 7:28 pm

Right i got my previous thread abit wrong. It's just some guy said that was what it was called.
Anyway how would you go about sending MIDI information wirelessly to a laptop? Is there a little device or something?

Also I was at a concert a bit ago and the synth player plugged his MIDI controller into osme machine that looked like a hospital machine. What is it?
M-Audio oxygen 49, Microkorg, Alesis Micron.
I only wish I could own a Clavia Nord lead 2.

it's easy to do on the macintosh- MIDI-over-network is built-in to OS X, no extra software required. of course i was setting up MIDI to communicate between two computers over WiFi- in this scenario, you are communicating between two computers networked wirelessly.

Have a look at the M-Audio MidiAir. I haven't used this, but it looks pretty cool. 8)

If you know the term 'wireless midi' and didn't Google it on your own, I dunno why you expect anyone would want to help you.

Sorry Andrew, this belongs in the Medic forum.

But since we don't have one of those- I suggest you stop smoking Mary Jo. She's clearly disrupted your ability to do your own research before asking daft questions.
