Post subject:  Looking for beta testers for a wireless MIDI Concertina app

Hi y'all,

I'm taking the iPhone apps to the next level and developing a wireless polyphonic English MIDI concertina controller app called "Miditina" based on Englitina. This app uses WiFi to send MIDI control data to either a Mac or Windows system running a small server application, the MIDI data can then be delivered to sequencers, software synths, or routed to external hardware synths connected to the system via a hardware MIDI interface. It supports note transposition and optional realtime control messages like volume, expression, modulation, and breath control using the accelerometer built into every iPhone/iPod Touch.

In my home studio, I'm able to test the Windows configuration, which is working really well, but before I release the app, I'd really like to get some feedback and some testing on Macs and other Windows configurations, so I'm looking for anyone who might be interested in being a beta tester.

Here's the requirements:

You must have an iPhone or iPod Touch (2nd generation or newer) running OS 3.0 or newer.

You must have a Mac OS X or Windows based computer and are familiar with use of MIDI port routing on the platform, use of software synthesizers, sequencers, and installation of drivers, etc.

Ideally, you should have a hardware MIDI interface on the computer connected to an external MIDI synth.

You must have a home network that is visible to both the computer either via WiFi or Ethernet, and the iPhone/iPod Touch via WiFi.

If you meet these requirements and would be interested in being a beta tester, please contact me via private message.

Here's more information about the application:

I would like to complete the testing in the next couple of weeks, looking for two or three beta testers.

Cheers and many thanks,

Michael

The app has been expanded to be a general purpose 27-button MIDI controller, with one of the options being an English Concertina button mapping:
