Line 6 have released the 2nd version of their portable MIDI interface that connects all classis and modern MIDI gear to iPhone and iPad (and iPOD Touch).

It supports CoreMIDI on the Apple iOS platform, and can me used for many free and paid for MIDI compatible applications, such as GarageBand.

“MIDI Mobilizer II makes portable music production easy,” remarked Chris Grigg, Line 6 mobile products manager.  “Anyone with an iPhone or iPad and a MIDI controller can connect MIDI Mobilizer II and be recording and playing music in seconds.  And with new apps being developed all the time, users can access an incredibly wide variety of instruments, software and more.”

MIDI Mobilizer II plus MIDI Memo Recorder, an app created by Line 6 that’s free on the App StoreSM, allow users to record, play and back up any MIDI data.  MIDI Memo Recorder features a streamlined interface for easy storage and recall of MIDI recordings, patches and more.  Users can back up and transfer MIDI data into replacement keyboards, classic and modern MIDI equipment and a variety of Line 6 guitar amplifiers and multi-effect processors.  MIDI recordings can also be opened in any digital audio recording software that supports the SMF (Standard MIDI File) format.

MIDI Mobilizer II is compatible with iPod touch (3rd and 4th generation), iPhone  (iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4), iPad and iPad 2, and is powered through the device – no batteries required.

The first-generation MIDI Mobilizer interface is still available and the perfect choice for older iOS devices. It is compatible with iPod touch (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation), iPhone (iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS), iPad and iPad 2. MIDI Mobilizer does not support CoreMIDI.

    • thanks for commenting chaps… yeah that ireg midi looks like in interesting product. I guess it depends on whether you need midi thru on the iphone/ipad side, and how long you can use your phone without changing it… for me, if I’m doing any serious audio work on my iphone, I turn on aeroplane mode, as I don’t want to get interrupted while recording. The iPhone can last a very long time on battery when the phone functions are turned off (i.e. aeroplane mode)… So really, including a power charging socket I’m certain is not necessary for most people.
