Midi Sync - a fool's errand?
For almost two years now I've been dreaming of a setup where I could have 2 iOS devices running loopy and have them synced via the midi clock, and have it be stable enough to actually use as part of my rig (guitar through one, keys through the other). Well, I went out this weekend and bought an iPad2 (to fit into my Alesis i/o dock) and an iPad air (note: iPads 3 and 4 are discontinued). Sadly, with the devices synced via Wifi, there's no real stability there. It was my hope that these devices would be powerful enough to do the job.
As tracks increase, the sync gets off or, if the master is paused and then started again, it's way off.
So the only hope left is: if the devices are physically connected, would that ensure a stable midi sync?
