The whole idea of it is that it will turn ANY keyboard with a five pin DIN MIDI output into a Bluetooth transmitting and receiving capable keyboard when paired with your iOS device. I used it on a 15+ year old Casio CTK (pre-Bluetooth) entry level keyboard and turned it into a wireless controller for Korg Module and iM1 on my iPad.

It's not 100% plug and play; before launching your synth you have to open up a Yamaha app on the iOS device which recognizes and pairs with the adapter. Once that's done, you can open up your synth app. Unfortunately you need to do this each time you start up. I haven't tried it with any complex multi-app setups, e.g. with audiobus, iMIDIPatchbay, etc. I have no idea if it would be able to work that way.

Wow, I don't remember stating that brilliant sentiment so eloquently, but I'll take it. laugh

While I'm here just ordered a couple of these:



Exciting, isn't it?

2-tier Stay Tower model. I really like it. Quick setup/teardown, compact, great bang for the buck.

Crumar Seven. Arrives today from Kraft Music. Got tired of waiting for Sweetwater to get more in. Hope the wait was worth it.

Crumar Seven. Between the modeled acoustic piano and sampled acoustic piano I think I can make it work. The EPs are wonderful!

Received mine 2 weeks ago. I've only been able to test it in my studio, but wow what a difference! I think it was Chuck who said it sounds like someone took a blanket off the speakers.

Very much well worth the price.

Just unpackaged it. Wow, what a solid piece of gear. After performing some mandatory chores (food shopping with the CFO ) the entire neighborhood will be the beneficiary of my open garage door testing policy........

My Seven just arrived. Waiting for my heart rate to slow down before I open it. At least no sign of damage to the box (it IS UPS). Need to make some space for it in my studio (I fully intend to be buried with all my stuff).

I like mine as well, much better than the Spider Pro I had been using. Looks cool as well.

So far, I am really liking it- for me it is an ideal set-up; 8-voices, three OSC with waveforms (need more waveforms), no aliasing despite the digital oscillators, desktop module format, love that the EG's are sliders, multi-mode filters which sound nice, but can be aggressive, very wide range of sounds available, fairly extensive modulation matrix, RESPONDS TO POLYAFTERTOUCH!!!, effects sound excellent and very useful, well-contracted with sturdy knobs, and the new bonus that it can be used as a knobby controller for Omnisphere 2.5 (coming out later this month?).

I am still just scratching the surface, but I am getting some pretty wonderful poly synth tones out of it, including Roland-ish stuff. Has powerful bass, and sounds decent mono. I think the DSI OB-6 exceeds it in pure analog tone, but the Peak is way more versatile. I am surprised it is not mentioned around here.

This one took a ton of work. Wes was great with it. It works now but man it took a lot of money all said and done. This is the 9th 145 I have had and one of the worst to work on.

Today I pulled the trigger on a NE6D from Sweetwater. It's replacing a laptop with Gig Performer, Kontakt/Komplete 11U and a KKS49Mk2 for stage use. Will midi up with the SL88 for larger stages than the cramped 3 piece corner stage for a 5 piece band, and solo for those very stages. I'm done with computers on stage.
