Finally. I was wondering when they'd start supporting MIDI on Android. Now if they could only get the latency to a reasonable level ...

On a related note, I will be putting PdParty on iOS out for testing today or tomorrow (depending on 1 last issue to fix). That makes 2 mobile OS's for pockatable pd gigging! iPad + CCK + powered usb hub = midi in/out. Also, network midi over Wifi.

Sorry it's taken so long since my first tester announcement at the beginning of the summer. Let's just say what I thought would take 1 week ended up at 4+ in the midst of other goings on. In any case I have some gigs coming up, so gotta get going!

Email me if you want to be added to the testers.
