Create and connect to ad hoc WiFi network


On your Mac:

  1. Go to Mac OSX Wi-Fi Menu (top right of screen).
  2. Choose Create Network…, give your network a name and press Create.

On your iPhone/iPod touch:

  1. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and you should see your new network under DEVICES.
  2. Choose your new network name (if you get a message warning that the network is not connected to the internet, click Join Anyway).

The next step is to create and connect to a MIDI Network Session


WARNING! WiFi interference in live venues

Ad hoc networks between laptops and iOS devices can get 'drowned-out' by mobile phone signals in live venues. The bigger the crowd the bigger this problem becomes.

In this scenario it is better to use a MIDI cable (eg iRig MIDI) from your iOS device to the MIDI target, or set up a special wifi router that can isolate your signals from the crowd, and is connected to your laptop via ethernet.
