This is just showing how to set up FCP with an iPad app. Some people I know were interested in getting it going so I created a short tutorial demonstrating the process...

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I solved the issue with the simple restart of the iPad. Everything connects fine now but not getting control in FCP. Have the mode set to FCP in the AC-7 app and I'm hearing audio clicks within the editor telling me that I'm pushing buttons on the app but no ability to play, scrub or anything. Getting closer though. I'll play around with it a little more tonight.

Thanks...great info! Unfortunately I'm running into connection issues as well. Everything is on the same network but my edit station isn't seeing my iPad. Maybe I'll try changing the port.

The other thing that worked for a friend was to reboot the iPad after you set up the Audio/MIDI setup. Then go through the whole process again...

Great tutorial! But when I'am on my MBP and is setting up a connection to my iPad in the "MIDI network Setup" I can't get it to find my iPad even though I followed your steps.

What is different in my view of the "MIDI network Setup" is that where you have your local ip-address (on the right side of the window) I see my bonjour-name:5004 instead of x.x.x.x:5004

Any suggestions?

This is one of the common problems when your computer and iPad are not on the same network OR if your network has restrictions. At the university I can't use the wireless because it locks down all of the ports. Instead I use an adhoc network by switching my computer (this works if you have a wireless option) to share its network over the wireless port. I'm attaching a shot of this in the sharing menu of system preferences. I have also used a wireless router for this as well. I have both computers connect to it (regardless if it is connected to the internet or other network) and then my computer and iPad usually see each other.
