Frequently Asked Questions for iConnectMIDI4+

How come I can't hear audio from iPad when connecting to iConnectMIDI4+?

By default when connecting an iOS device to the iConnectMIDI4+, it will enable the iOS’s digital audio to pass through the iOS device's dock connector and disables that iOS device's internal speakers/headphone jack. To change this, so that audio will sound through the iOS device's headphone jack/speakers: In iConfig, under the Audio Info section, de-select "iOS " for the iCM4 USB Device Jack that iOS Device is connected to and then perform a "Commit & Reset".

Is it possible to change the names of the ports on the iConnectMIDI4+?

You can change the port names on the iConnectMIDI4+ within the MIDI Info section of the iConfig application. After changing the names you will need to select “Commit Changes to FLASH” in iConfig and then disconnect iConnectMIDI4+ from your Mac. Open up Audio MIDI Setup and delete any iConnectMIDI4+ images that are in the MIDI window. When you reconnect the iConnectMIDI4+, the Mac will retrieve the new names. To have the custom names reflect on your iOS device, you need to reset the iOS device. You can do this in Settings/General/Reset/Reset All Settings.

PC no longer recognizes iConnectMIDI4+

Wed, 10/08/2014 - 00:34 -- admin

This seems to be an issue where disabling the Mac/PC Audio passThru for the USB Device Jack that a PC running Windows is connected to, will no longer communicate properly with the PC. To regain connectivity, re-enable the Audio passThru using the iConfig application on a connected iOS device, or if you haven't disabled the Mac/PC audio passThru for the remaining 2 USB Device Jacks on iCM4, connect to one of these jacks and connect to iConfig to re-enable the audio passThru. Don't forget to save your changes to FLASH.
