A few months back we posted about our friends over at Zivix and their ultra technologically cool guitar controller, JamStik. Now Zivix is taking on the world of iOS MIDI over Wi-Fi with their latest and greatest tech piece, The PUC.
Imagine a scenario where you can do away with the huge spaghetti ball of wires that mess about in your back pack in the name of mobile musicianship. There is where the PUC lives. With the PUC you can have a quick set up for any number of musical applications and purposes. Keyboardists, DJ, Beatmakers & guitarists alike will benefit from the PUC wi-fi MIDI capabilities. With the PUC your iPad just got cooler as a synth because of less wiring.
What is the PUC?
The PUC is a wireless MIDI interface designed specifically for iOS devices. The PUC allows you to wirelessly connect any MIDI device (keyboard, DJ controller, drum pad, floor pedal controllers, etc.) directly to your iPad. PUC can also work with any platform that supports a MIDI connection over WiFi.
The PUC communicates directly to the iPad via WiFi directly as a device, no “host” WiFi network is necessary. PUC uses an open standard for CoreMIDI over WiFi. Once your legacy MIDI signals are translated into CoreMIDI by the PUC, any CoreMIDI compatible app can recognize it.
Zivix currently has a IndieGoGo campaign underway. Be sure to drop by and donate so we can see this awesome product come to market. We all need it.
“We are a small company bringing a new type of product to market in a competitive consumer electronics space. While we are confident in our ability to engineer a high quality music interface and ramp it into volume manufacturing, you are the indicator of market demand. A successful Indiegogo campaign will allow us to fund production tooling and purchase materials in quantities that keep costs down.”
