  • Korg Polysix controlling iPolysix on iPad

    Not sure where to put this... So I've had Polysix for something like 20 years now, and I also have the iPolysix on my iPad. I installed Kiwisix replacement / MIDI add-on board on Polysix some time ago, and now realised I can actually use it to control iPolysix. Not so useful as a mobile controller though

    This is all done on iPad except for the sound recording and video editing. Most likely I could have done this solely on iPad too. iPad is connected to iConnectAUDIO4+ interface. Polysix sends MIDI to iPolysix. On iPad app called Midiflow is used to reroute Polysix control change messages to iPolysix. AUM is used to create audio connections between iPolysix and Mac.

    Nice! It would be great to see a video of a whole song done with this setup. I have a Korg Kronos 2 that I use as a midi controller for Korg iM1 and iWavestation on my iPad Pro. Sound is routed to a TASCAM DP24-SD hardware recorder. IMG_0405.jpg

      Very nice! iPad is such a versatile piece of equipment. I'm running my things on the first gen iPad Air, and it still manages to do everything I need. I haven't decided if I want the larger or smaller iPad pro to accompany it. Usually in a live set I have Animoog, iPolysix and Flux at least running simultaneously and I use Aum as the mixer.

      I wish there would be multiport lightning/usb-c interfaces to connect multiple iPads and a Mac (or can you just plug iPad to Mac and have it as an audio interface?). I'm using iConnectAudio4+ now. The same interface is seen on the iPad and Mac and multiple audio and midi channels can be shared and routed freely in between + one can connect max 16 USB devices too like controllers and keyboards etc. I haven't found a solution for connecting many iPads and a Macbook digitally at the same time.

      When I have too much free time I intend to record something with exact same settings (as far as the precision allows) on Polysix and iPolysix and see how their sound would differ. That should be interesting.

        The size won't really matter to the audio quality on the iPad, but if you want to pipe the sound to your audio equipment, I wouldn't get a brand new iPad Pro, because they've eliminated the earphone jack, and you have to buy an adapter.. mine is a first generation iPad Pro, so it still has the earphone jack. I had to buy a USB 3 adapter so I could plug in my Korg for a midi controller, and still have it plugged into the power adapter, and routed to my recorder at the same time- without it, the original USB to lightning adapters won't power the midi controller. Also, if you have to use an earphone to lightning adapter, you won't be able to use your iPad with the midi controller unless you have something like I got for my iPad 3, which is a dedicated audio interface for iOS, and has regular midi input and output, plus normal rca and headphone outs.
