MIDI Memo Recorder
By Line 6
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Please Note: The MIDI* record and play features of this free app require a hardware MIDI accessory from Line 6: a Mobile Keys 25 or Mobile Keys 49 keyboard, or a MIDI Mobilizer II or MIDI Mobilizer MIDI interface. For more information on these products and the many compatible MIDI apps, please visit www.line6.com/mobile.
MIDI Memo Recorder simply records and plays any MIDI data - any time, any place. The app's streamlined design makes it quick and easy to store, find, recall, and even email any type of MIDI information - all your synth sounds, Line 6 effect patches, musical inspirations, and more. And with iOS version 3.2 and higher, MIDI files can also be transferred between your mobile device and your computer using iTunes File Sharing.
When the MIDI Memo Recorder app is used in conjunction with the MIDI Mobilizer II and MIDI Mobilizer hardware MIDI interface accessories, it's compatible with every single product equipped with standard 5-pin MIDI connectors. That means literally millions upon millions of keyboards, amplifiers, effects devices, and other types of audio gear throughout the world.
The MIDI Memo Recorder app also serves as the firmware updater for Mobile Keys keyboards, and for the MIDI Mobilizer II and MIDI Mobilizer MIDI interfaces. That means you can always get the latest firmware simply by updating to the current version of the MIDI Memo Recorder app and running it.
* "MIDI" stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, the worldwide standard for communicating musical performance data between musical devices, computers, and mobile devices.
What's New in Version 3.0.4
The Line 6 Mobile Keys 25, Mobile Keys 49, and MIDI Mobilizer II now officially support iPhone 4S and iPad (3rd Generation) through the firmware included in MIDI Memo Recorder 3.0.4. The included Mobile Keys firmware is now version 1.0.6, and the included MIDI Mobilizer II firmware is now version 1.0.4.
Worked fine for me
I installed this app into my iphone 4 to use my new line 6 mobile keys 25. Out of the box it would not work with a 3rd party synth app saying that my device was not supported on my phone. I installed this app and updated the firmware and she works like a champ! Fast and easy. As far as the recording ability built into this app, it seems very vanilla and I don't expect to use it much.
Best thing since sliced bread
To someone with a twin tube rack mount that hasn't been able to remember its own name since I bought it over 20 years ago, the idea of a pocket device that I can dump and pull sysex data to is awesome. Now I can program the midi preamp however I want and not worry about the memory.
Super buggy after last update
Start playing back one 'memo' and want to switch? You need to force quit the app and restart. Accidentally enable record mode during playback? The app gets confused -- you need to force quit and restart. Has this thing ever been tested? Basic midi record and playback should not be this broken. I tried to contact technical support to report these issues, but their support site seems to work about as well as the app -- i.e. not at all.
