MiDiGenerator Quick Start



MIDI Setup


Setup MIDI to connect to external MIDI devices.
Plug the camera connection kit to your mobile device and connect it to a USB MIDI adapter. Connect the USB MIDI out to an external MIDI synthesizer input. For performance, connect the MIDI in to a MIDI keyboard output.

Setup Inter-app Audio if you want to connect to other IAA music apps on your device.
Select the SETUP tab. Tap ADD INSTRUMENT to connect to an app running on the same device. Likely you will want to connect to a synth or perhaps a MIDI controller. Choose apps listed as (instrument) in the pop-up list.

Track Setup

Select the PLAY tab. Here you can select the bank and configure its tracks.
Tap on the bank name to select another bank.
Tracks 1 through 8 output on MIDI channels 1 through 8. The track MIDI channel determines the MIDI channel number output to your MIDI synthesizer for that track. To change a channel number, tap the track yellow gear to view the PROG pop-up menu. Select the MIDI CHAN, change the value and then tap DONE.

A track's notes may be programmed by Randomization, Auto-generation, MIDI Record, Step Arpeggiation, Step Program or SMF upload.
If you would like to quickly generate some percussive tracks, just tap the RAND button. Tap again for a new pattern. The randomization parameters are set in the track PROG menu.
The track may also be auto-generated in the track PROG menu. Tap REGENERATE? to bring up the Regeneration help. Select one of the regenerations to program the track.


A track may be recorded from the KEYS keyboard or a MIDI keyboard.
To record, first select a track's INPUT triangle on the PLAY page.

Now tap REC. The first note played begins the recording. Tap track STOP or REC again to stop the recording.

Arpeggiation Record Trigger Mode

In the PLAY and KEYS pages five yellow square buttons set the function for incoming MIDI notes.
The ARP mode is in red letters because it is a recording mode. Select ARP to change a track's notes from a MIDI keyboard. Select the track INPUT you would like to record and tap the track's play button. Now play your keyboard and listen. Tap the track play again and hear what happens!

Other Trigger Modes

For keyboard control of the tracks there are a number of trigger modes. For example:
MULTIPLE is great for percussive rhythmic effects. A new track sequence is created for each trigger event!
SINGLE plays one sequence on the track. Subsequent MIDI notes transpose the sequence.


The MiDiGenerator may be performed and used in many ways.
Enjoy performing off the grid!
