i-MX1 is a MIDI interface cable which enables an iPad / iPhone to be connected to any MIDI instrument. There is no difficult setup, simply connect the i-MX1to the iPad / iPhone and a MIDI instrument such as synthesizer, electronic drum kit, or digital piano and use any Core MIDI compliant iOS app. For example, you can play the virtual instruments in Garage Band for iPAD using a MIDI keyboard or electronic drum kit.
There are dedicated applications (Voice, Performance and Multi editors) for Yamaha synthesizers (Motif XS/XF, S90XS, MOX) which will expand the functions of your instrument. Yamaha also has created a number of unique Core MIDI compliant apps which work with any MIDI instrument. The Faders & XY Pad MIDI Control application controls your synthesizers sounds by sending MIDI control change messages from the iPad. Keyboard Arp & Drum Pad is an application that transmits notes to the synthesizer. Set List lets you create a set list with detailed note and MIDI program changes and volume settings program changes for up to 5 MIDI devices on 5 different channels. By combining the unique interface of your iPad / iPhone with your MIDI instruments, you can create a professional mobile music thats both fun and creative.
