I received my blues harp mouthpiece today. I did not have any problems with the original mouthpiece on DM48 but if you are a diatonic player like me it feels like coming home again. Thank you Brendan and David !

It's no problem with the iPad for two inputs. You just need a twin USB hub with one output going to the Apple female USB connector. I've been using both on my iPad no trouble. Here's the Apple connector I have:

and here are some multi USB hubs:

Great, i was unsure if it could read midi signals from two units on one port. Maybe i can find any iPad app that have pitchbend option. So far i found one (Music Studio) but must wait until the mini pitchbender arrives to try it out.

Brendan, you have Thor on your iPad. It must mean that you can switch the pitch range 3+ to use the mini pitchbender in this app?

Thanks Brendan !
I really like the possibility/simplicity to use it with my iPad and use it at all places. Just plug it in and play. And there is also a growing numbers of apps to choose from.

Cool! I'm gonna try this app.
A good player is always on guard. I consider myself a good one. I explored more than you can imagine but haven't found the perfect one. Do you know any?

So far i found 3 apps in Appstore that have variable pitch settings to use with MiniPitch Bender. These are Galileo(organ), Poison-202 and Music Studio 2. And of course Thor we mentioned earlier.

I've really been getting into Thor on iPad with the DM48 this past week. Bernzilla's patch set is good:

As you say Lizzie, its so user friendly. Nearly ready to take it on a gig, quite a threshold to cross!

The Mini PitchBender are nearly ready to ship, just a couple of final tweaks.
