Thanks to the upcoming Midi Pad App,  you’re no longer to find a reason to buy the Apple iPad. The Midipad is an exciting new app for the iPad/iPhone for music creation and live-performance.

The striking feature of midipad is its ability to directly communicate via network-MIDI-protocol. So there is no need to install any communication-peer-software on the Mac! Simply plug-and-play via Apple Bonjour – wireless. This kind of connectivity has not been used in any similar iphone-software.

This multitouch-capable midi-controller-application communicates with your Apple Mac your Windows-based PC and even standalone hardware-synths via Wifi. So you can control all of your music-applications with just a few finger-gestures without having to sit at your desk and no annoying cable.

In the production-environment midipad can control host-applications like Apple Logic, Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo, Ableton Live etc. It can also be used to control stand-alone applications from companies like Native-Instruments, Spectrasonics and many more.

As a live-musician you can control sub-mixes of your virtual keyboard-rig, activate setups and change parameters of the virtual instruments or even hardware-instruments – all in realtime on stage. If you are a DJ, you can control your favorite application wireless as well. So you just might take a stroll through your ecstatic audience.

Midipad incorporates various commonly used controller-types like buttons, trigger-pads, sliders, ribbon-control in one & two dimensions, rotary-knobs, or complete functionality blocks like transport-control. Check out the official site for more info.[via MidiPad]
