Remapping Notes Not Working with Garageband on iPAD

Post by seyfreedrum » Sun Nov 10, 2019 9:04 am

Hello,

Seyran here from Freedrum. I have our sensors connected in Midiflow. I am trying to set the sensors to play the in the same key no matter what drum we hit, but even though the input and output match on the app Garageband doesn't change the key it is in. Can someone help me out with this?

Hi,
first: nice to hear from you! I actually got two sets at Kickstarter last year! Nice work! :-D

Garageband does not really work with Midiflow, because Garageband listens on all MIDI ports, and there is no way to change that. So, even if Midiflow is remapping something and outputs the data on some port, Garageband will probably receive the original data as well. Other apps with better MIDI implementations allow you to deselect the original MIDI source, so that only the remapped data is received.

Does that make sense?

Best,
Johannes
