Web MIDI Browser is a web browser for browsing Web Apps made with Web MIDI API.
Web MIDI Browser can activate the Bluetooth MIDI functionality which is a new function of iOS 8. Instruments which support Bluetooth MIDI connectivity can be connected to Web Apps by using this App.
Web MIDI API is a new web client API. It's being standardized as a part of HTML5. By utilizing the API, you can build web apps that interact with MIDI instruments, for example, keyboards, DJ controllers and so on.
Originally, MIDI is a physical interface for connecting electric musical instruments to heighten expressiveness of playing music. But now it's used in many ways. Nowadays, web apps are a keystone of great services. If its power comes into the MIDI world, the usability of MIDI is likely to expand. Web MIDI browser can bridge both worlds in iOS.
- Fixed a bug. forEach(), a MIDIPort member function, didn't work properly.
- Supported watchOS 2.
Ratings and Reviews
Doesn't work with Novation Circuit
It doesn't work with the Novation Circuit. Also seems to drain the battery a lot. It used almost 30% of the battery usage for the day, and rest was taken up by the lock screen and various music apps. I removed since it doesn't work for me.
Very cool idea
This is obviously in an early stage — but what a clever idea! You can create a MIDI-enabled web page anywhere on the internet…. and then the page can play the synthesizers on your iOS device. Kudos to the developer for thinking of this; a really nice idea. I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes.
Use MIDI Web Apps
With this app, you can simple load in the link for a MIDI web app and it will then bring up the app which you can then use to run the apps on your iOS device. This works great, for example, there's a web app called iSEQTRIBE that allows you to control the MIDI clock on iElectribe and send it pitch data as a sequence so you can have a melody that accompanies your beats too. You can bookmark web apps from within MIDI Web Browser so you can easily recall them later.
