Here is a five part series of tutorials for CoreMIDI app developers looking to get started with MIDI programming on iOS devices. The author (developer of the Little MIDI Machine app) has gone into great detail explaining the conceptual overview of MIDI development and best-practices relating to CoreMIDI for iOS. So far, only three parts has been released, I’ll update this blog as the final installments become available.

This is a must read for anyone considering adding MIDI to their apps.

  1. Killer tutorial thanks! I am anxiously awaiting the last two parts on MIDI networking and multi-tasking for an iOS app I’m working on now. How long will you make us wait? 😉

    • Hey Chris, Lots of rare knowledge in those articles, but giving credit where credit is due: I’m not the author. The folks over at Synthetic Bits have authored this “CoreMIDI Brain Dump” series. Really good stuff, I eagerly await the final two as well. 🙂

  2. this is great stufff manx

  3. Hi! The files are private. Any chance you make them public again? 🙂

  4. hi Xmidi
    any chance to have this tutorials back inline? it would be very helpfull! thank you

    • Hi luca, as I’ve mentioned in this thread, this tutorial series was originally posted by Synthetic Bits Blog and I do not have a copy of them. I’ve attempted to email them asking them to either repost them of allow me to post them here, but my emails have (so far) gone unresponded.

  5. I’ve written some CoreMidi tutorials. Especially geared towards playing MIDI files on iOS. If you’ve interested they’re available here: CoreMidi iPhone tutorials.

  6. Hi,

    I’d love to read your posts, but require a login password.

    Please advise.



    • These tutorials are hosted offsite by the author ( I have no control over when(if?) he might make them public again. I’ve tried numerous time to contact him in order to host his valuable tutorials here on this site to no avail. 🙁

  7. Hi, I cannot read (open ) these links:

    Synthetic Bits Blog – CoreMIDI Brain Dump, Part 1: Intro
    Synthetic Bits Blog – CoreMIDI Brain Dump, Part 2: Basic MIDI
    Synthetic Bits Blog – CoreMIDI Brain Dump, Part 3: Clocks and Threads

    where do I make mistake?

    thank in advance for your help

  8. The articles are available at Wayback Machine, thankfully. Don’t know why they took them down unless they feared enabling competitors, but if that’s the reason they also hurt those who aren’t. I just needed to know about threading.
