App Developers Invited For Line 6 Mobile MIDI Interface


Line 6 is inviting software developers to create apps for MIDI Mobilizer, which they describe as the only MIDI interface for Apple iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Marcus Ryle, SVP of New Business Development at Line 6, told us, "With Apple's new iOS 4 it is now possible for any developer to create MIDI-enabled applications that work with MIDI Mobilizer. As an open invitation to developers, we are now providing the SDK at no charge, and are not charging any license fee or royalty."
MIDI Mobilizer is a low-profile hardware device that fits into the standard 30-pin connector of an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. It can connect these Apple products to millions of pieces of classic and modern MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) gear, such as synthesizers, digital pianos, effects processors, and virtually any device with standard MIDI 5-pin DIN connectors, including Line 6 guitar amps and POD® products. Thanks to the free MIDI Mobilizer SDK, future applications can be developed that will allow virtually any MIDI function commonly performed by a computer to be held in the palm of your hand.
Recent third-party apps for MIDI Mobilizer include MIDI Live, which provides playback and real-time modification of any Standard MIDI File song, and MIDI Surface, which can turn an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a general-purpose MIDI controller. Also available from Line 6 for MIDI Mobilizer is MIDI Memo Recorder. It presents MIDI musicians with a host of solutions related to performing, recording and data backup. All of these apps are available on the Apple App Store.
Pricing and Availability:
The free SDK (Software Development Kit) can be requested from Line 6 via MMdeveloper@line6.com.
