NLog getting Line6 MIDI compatability soon

The excellent NLog synth is getting MIDI output with the Line6 SDK coming soon according to this tweet:

Play a real synth: Plug a MIDI keyboard into your IOS device & load "NLog MIDI Synth" app. Out soon! (interface like Midi Mobilizer needed)

I hope the latency (delay between playing the keyboard and hearing the sound) is insignificant on these sorts of solutions:

MIDI keyboard, wind controller, etc -> Line 6 interface -> iThing -> iThing app -> audio output

If so, we have many good things in store.

I think it would be better to wait the NLOG update with its compatibility with the new dock IPK25 Synthstation from AKAI isn't?

Now if they could just take some time out their busy schedule to update the iPad interface.

latency was always an issue for keyboard makers, many hundreds years ago mechanical church organs had a lot of latency ;-) Anyway, some years ago software synth were fighting same issues with sound card and audio driver latencies. Now this is solved in the desktop & laptop world. Doing the IOS MIDI part was quite tricky, but I believe that what I achieved is pretty much close to what it needs to be and it is really great to play. When the app comes out Line6 will be supported. Once I got an AKAI Synthstation that will be updated and every other interface which I can grab. The "NLog MIDI Synth" app will go in review this week and hopefully does not take too long...

The "NLog Synth PRO" app will be completed next. First release will be iPad only, later also for other IOS devices with arm7 CPUs.
