To use Touch For Virus you will need to connect your VIRUS TI and iPad with a USB to MIDI interface.
Some interfaces can’t handle the large amount of Sysex data or sending speed used by the Virus TI when sending patch dumps. As a result fetching patches will not work with these interfaces. In the table you can see which functionality is reported by users to work for some interfaces.
March 2020: Table is updated for app version 1.5.4
|Alesis is dock 2||Yes||Yes|
|ESI MIDIMATE II (USB)||Yes||No*|
|Roland UM-ONE (USB)||Yes||Yes|
|Yamaha MD-BT01 (bluetooth)||Yes||No|
|Yamaha UX16 (USB)||Yes||Yes|
|ZOOM U-44 (USB)||Yes||Yes|
- Patch dumps cannot be initiated with the “Fetch” button in the app, but are reported to work when initiated on the Virus TI. You can do this in the “Save”-menu by choosing the save-option: ‘patch dump’.
Please feel free to send me a note with your USB to MIDI interface and how it works, so I can keep this list updated.
