I thought this would be a simple task, but so far I haven't come up with a decent solution.
Basically, I want to send and receive wireless MIDI from/to my MIDI Keyboard controller (Arturia KL88), Motif Rack XS and iPad.
I'm using the Yamaha BT-01 for my wireless transmit/receive device, and it works great IF I am using USB mode on the Rack XS, but I'm really trying to avoid having to bring my computer (and the complex setup that goes with it) to a live gig.
As you probably already know, you have to at least plug the OUT end into a powered MIDI 5-pin din receptacle, but I"m pretty sure I'm also going to need the IN port as well. So, if you plug the IN/OUT plugs to the MIDI controller, how does the Rack XS send/receive MIDI? If you plug it into the Rack XS, how does the MIDI controller send/receive MIDI? It's almost like I need two of them, but I don't think that they would talk to each other...
I've also purchased lots of other interesting devices in the hopes of coming up with a solution, but have not been successful as of yet. For example, I thought for sure if I got the iConnectMIDI4+ that I could plug my iPad lighting connector into the USB port, and plug the Rack XS and MIDI Controller to its 5-pin DIN plugs, and then use their app to act as a MIDI traffic controller. No luck there.
I also tried using MIDI Solutions Quadra Merge and Router but no luck there either. I also tried using the Presonus AudioBox iTwo but it doesn't help.
Has anybody out there ever been successful with getting this type of scenario working?
