Wondering if anyone has any experience/advice with sending a Program Change via MIDI from an iPad to a BOSS VE 500 Vocal Performer. What I would like to do is embed MIDI Program Changes in my charts so that the change is sent to the VE 500 to change my vocal effects. What interface would I need to accommodate MIDI out of my iPad to the VE 500? Thanks for any help/suggestions.
You would need either a USB to MIDI interface (this is the one I use: USB-C for my iPad Air 2022) or you could go the MIDI over Bluetooth route. Unfortunately the BOSS VE500 does not have a MIDI Out which is required to supply power for the CME WIDI master but you could use the CME WIDI jack which has a USB-C connector that you can connect a 5V power supply/charger to.
Philip, thank you for replying with your suggestion. You have given me a direction to go, and I will check out what is available here (I’m in Canada). I am not very technically minded, so I may have to pick your brain a bit more.
I'm a techie type but I'm still learning this MIDI stuff myself so we can learn together! I don't have a a VE500 but MIDI works mostly the same on any device that supports it.
Thank you Philip. I’m just finishing up some shows over the next couple of weeks, and then I’ll get into trying to make it work. I’ll let you know how I make out.
