Hi im a big sierra fan but this whole midi stuff totally confuses me. I tried to read this thread for an hour trying to make sense of it.
If you could try to say yes or no, then give explaination if possible, im really interested but kinda slow with midi.
So theres an app on the store which emulates the old mt32 or whatever unit box that people used to use for great sound right?
People here are talking about hooking up their pc to the ipad ...sending sound from the pc dosbox to the ipad instead of the old boxes right? Im thinking this is nice to prevent boxes getting old right?
I think thats what everyone is talking about, is their a way i can use idos2 on the app store to send mt32 output to the roland sound canvas app WITHOUT any midi irigs or cables or anything? just to use my ipad as a gaming machine with great sound?
If the above is not possible, could i buy an irig midi 2 , load idos2 have the midi mt 32 from lets say space quest 3 go from idos2 to the midi out with a midi cable, then just insert the other end and loop it back to the midi in and somehow get soundcanvas to make the sound?
the last question i had was, why would anyone want to send sound from a pc to an ipad for better sound when there are great programs for the pc that emulate mt32 like scumm for windows, or dosbox with munt installed (special munt edition). is it because the quality and repoduction is more accurate ?
thanks for the advise! i hope that this might work.
