ittyMIDI MIDI Player
By Ray Finch

Re 041218 MMDigest.  I think some clarification is in order before
we get too far into this subject:  The ittyMIDI MIDI player runs on
a hand held computer called the Palm Pilot.  The iPod is an Apple
product that is a personal music player that plays MP3s and several
other music formats through headphones.  The iPod has no way of
sending MIDI data out to run a piano or other MIDI controlled device.

Since the ittyMIDI MIDI player runs on a small computer (the Palm
Pilot), it is possible if the ittyMIDI people wanted to, to make their
system operate as Andy LaTorre has suggested.  This of course would be
up to the ittyMIDI company.

To answer Andy LaTorre's question about what the iPod is (I think he
was actually talking about the Palm Pilot), the Palm Pilot is a small
computer but not a mini PC per say.  It can do PC-like things (like
send e-mail, keep notes, remember phone numbers, etc.) but it is its
own type of computer device.  Much like a Macintosh is a computer and
can do many PC-like things but it is not a PC: it's a Macintosh

Hope that helps,

Ray Finch
