I have an MC6 that I need to connect or send MIDI messages from pressing its foot switches to an iPad. I will add in that in addition to MIDI messages, I am also sending audio to the same iPad. I am using a USB hub to send MIDI and audio to my iPad: USB C Hub Detachable Cable | 1G Ethernet, 4K HDMI, 100W PD, USB 3.0 | Aluminum | uni®
My initial approach is to use a MIDI to USB cable to send the MIDI messages.
QUESTION 1: The MC6 has a USB B out (I think that’s what it is), which is to my understanding used to connect the MC6 to your PC to set the functionality of the foot switches. I’ve used a USB B cable to connect my MC6 to my PC before to do the setup/config.
Does this exact same USB B connection - send out MIDI messages when you press the foot switch? In other words, can I just run a USB B cable to my USB hub, and will send out those messages that can go to my iPad?
QUESTION 2: Does the MC6 support WIDI, aka a specific hardware and software protocol for wireless MIDI.
