Introducing Wej. Wireless MIDI base.

Wej is a non-skid performance platform that lets you connect your USB controllers to your iOS music apps wirelessly over the new Apple Bluetooth LE MIDI protocol. Plus it features super bright multicolor LEDs that dance in time to the music.

Wej needs you! With your help, we're looking to gather enough pre-orders to support building Wej. Save 20% and get Wej for just $99.00 if you order before November 7. Visit preorder.retronyms.com.

Connect your controllers to Wej, and it will transmit their MIDI messages wirelessly to your iPad. Expand your iOS studio with keyboards, drum pads, fader banks, sequencers, and more. Wej uses Apple's Bluetooth Midi protocol introduced in iOS 8, providing a fast wireless bridge. Wej is compatible with any app that supports this protocol.

Wej is powered. Use it to charge any USB device, including your iPhone or iPad (even while it's connected to a controller). Supply enough juice to run power-hungry USB music gear.

Use Wej to add ambiance to your studio or serve as an ultra-portable light show with its bank of programmable multicolor LEDs.

Customize your animated light patterns with the Wej Control App. It's a Tabletop Ready app that integrates seamlessly with Retronyms software and works with anything that supports Apple's Inter-App Audio standard on iOS.

Open Source and Hackable

Built with open source in mind. The core of Wej is an Arduino application processor. Download our open-source sketch and hack away at it. Learn more at preorder.retronyms.com/hacks.html

iMPC Pro free update available now (v1.1)

Hello everyone, version 1.1 of iMPC Pro is available now as a free update. Below is a description of some of the important improvements.

iMPC Pro V 1.1 changes include:

- Trim endpoint saves and loads properly.
- Delete Sounds.
- Velocity for iMPC Element fixed.
- Added sound delete (drag to trash).
- Crash on set global for FX return and Master Fader fixed.
- Can now open and close precision mode controls while popover is active.
- Performance improvements on save and load sessions and sample edits.
- FX returns were moving some fader controls. This is fixed.
- iMPC Pro now registers as a InterApp Audio Instrument. Should sync better with Cubasis and other hosts.
- You can now drag pads across banks using multitouch. (eg: begin dragging pad, select bank b, drop pad)
- Various other small fixes and performance improvements.

I think this is going to be a great update.  I'm also really happy to have had a chance to build the new delete feature. We are now off to add some polish to Tabletop and finish our last project for #summerofepic! Stay tuned.
