The Seaboard GRAND and RISE transmit MIDI over USB. MIDI can be sent directly to music apps, including Seaboard 5D and GarageBand on an iPhone or iPad by using an Apple camera connector kit. Note: while NOISE standalone does not currently support connection via camera connection kits, you may connect via USB and load NOISE as a plugin within GarageBand.
