thanx for that, I read this for the latest update of GB too; but I think it's a Bad joke! The producer of the iPad and the developer of QuickTime (the IOS recognizes a xxx.mid-file as file which QuickTime is capable to Open) and CoreMidi publishes a music app (which originally was a MIDIsequencer) that can't Open or Import real MIDIfiles???
I really hope that this feature is Part of the next update of GB, otherwise GB is worth to be trashed.
As i grow old waiting to receive my ipad2 in the mail, I have been viewing the forums to get a better understanding of what I will be able to do on this thing. I import midi files into garageband on my macbook all the time as a method of teaching myself piano. I would love to be able to do this on the iPad. On my macbook, garageband can't "import" midi files but it I am able to drag midi files into an open garageband project. If this method doesn't work on the ipad, I will just drag the midi onto garageband on my macbook, save it as a garageband project, and transfer it to my ipad. This will be an annoying step but better than nothing.
If someone could give this method a try and respond that would be great!
it seems so, that you just can move a GB-session from the ipad to the mac; the way from mac to ipad doesn't work. So here is an alternative I found in the AppStore, it's called Music Studio.
You can find infos, tutorials here:
GB may be nice for some folks; in my opinion it's a toy, but no editor.
