    Hi,
    I am planning to use a 61 key weighted keyboard for my regular slot at a restaurant, i want to run this through my iPad via the MIDI in and use a piano app for the sound BUT I also use iBooks to read the sheet music,
    which apps can you recommend that run in the background so that I can still use iBooks?
    Thanks
    Jacob

    Interesting multitasking challenge.
    I found that most midi keyboards that require decent power from the iPad may require a USB hub and that itself is just the first hard part. The second part might be easier to use a second iOS device for. I believe yamaha has a learning keyboard that let you read the corresponding sheet music. But it looks like you have special sound requirements. On the positive side, this does give you a valid reason to get another iPad.
