Plug and Play: Yamaha’s i-UX1 Connects iOS Devices to MIDI Instruments

USB MIDI Interface Cable Is First Yamaha Connector to Work With iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch

ANAHEIM, Calif. — At the 2013 NAMM Show, Yamaha will introduce the i-UX1, a MIDI interface cable that enables quick, easy, seamless connection between the iPad /iPhone/iPod Touch and MIDI instruments. Just plug it in, and the i-UX1 works with Core MIDI compatible iOS Applications.

This is the first cable that connects instruments that have USB MIDI (vs. regular 5-pin DIN MIDI) to iDevices. The i-UX1 works with the iPad/iPhone/ iPod touch. Following an intuitive setup process, the i-UX1 quickly expands the functions of Yamaha MIDI instruments, enabling players to easily launch Yamaha’s innovative Apps, such as Piano Diary and MusicSoft Manager. It also allows users to edit the sound of their instruments from the iPhone, or the larger display of the iPad.

“The i-UX1 is yet another example of the growing synergies between Apple products and Yamaha music technology,” said Dane Madsen, Yamaha Digital Piano Marketing Manager. “This elegant connector will open up a whole new world of possibilities and functionality for Apple users.”
