According to the manual, the my dmx go app accepts midi notes, I am trying to send midi notes from a bluetooth pedal that can send midi notes, the app does not respond, does anyone have experience with this?

Thank You.

Hi,

Yes it is on an ipad, the midi bluetooth pedal works fine with my ipad as well as the mydmx app, but setting the notes is where the problem comes in, when setting the notes, there are many options and none seem to work right now, I am new to midi and was hoping there was a guide on what exactly needs to be set for the notes to be sent. The pedal manufacturer has no information on setting the notes or custom commands on the pedal. Getting the apps to communicate is where I am stuck.

Thank You.

Hi I also received a little more info from one of the developers: 

"The iPad version of the tablet app simply accesses the General MIDI info which is integrated in the iPad/iOS. There for there needs to be checks as to whether Apple actually allow MIDI over bluetooth, and also if the customers MIDI controller uses General MIDI as a protocol. And if that all does, then they may also need to remap their MIDI controller to send the correct notes which correspond with the app and that of the Akai APC MINI controller which it is currently configured for.
Unfortunately this is not something we have tested regarding bluetooth MIDI, so it would be trial and error for the customer."


Likewise with what you said in your last post, i think the main issue is you don't know what your MIDI is sending, and you need to have certain midi notes as you see in the manual for myDMX GO to get them to work, unfortunately we can't help you troubleshoot the midi device as it is not one of our products and we'd just be guessing. You should try to reach out to someone at the company either via phone or email and ask for those details.    

Thanks for the information, I figured it out though, I am using the Airturn BT200S-6, it is a 6 button blue tooth pedal, the problem was assigning the notes to the pedal and putting it in the correct mode for midi, called the company and they were great and worked it out, works good so far, haven't field tested it yet. If anyone is interested, the pedal works with the ipad version of my dmx go. The app that comes with the pedal is where you configure it to send notes and then save and put the pedal in midi mode and it worked from there.
