Melo Audio is now OEM for the Harley Benton MP-500

(both are identical)

And now there is finally a readable Owners Manual

FWIW  - the trolls who run TGP have nuked the MElo ToneShifter mega thread

it never shows up - despite recent updates

I just picket up the MIDI commander for a quick and easy midi controller for my AXE FX III.   I also would like to use it with my IPAD pro for BIAS FX, is there a way to route the guitar in?  I have an IRig HD2, would a Lightning to USB hub adapter work to get multiple signals to the IPAD?????? ???

Typically a Powered USB Hub allows use of MeloAudio MIDI commander + USB Audio interface

MeloAudio does cover the connections in the MIDI Commander Manual

QuoteQ2: How can I connect the device to iPhone or iPad for the using of software effects, such as Bias FX, JamUp?

A2: For all the iDevices with lightning connector, we need a cable which called "Lightning to USB camera adapter" (May
also be called as Apple OTG cable) to connect the standard USB plug with the lightning connector. After connecting,
enable the MIDI control in the Apps. It can work together with any other audio interface to use software effects, you
can connect by a USB Hub to join the audio interface and the MIDI Commander. Another way is connecting to audio
interface through MIDI IN jack (Such as TS MINI in Tone Shifter Series). It should be noted that,for most Lightning OTG
cables, it is required that the external device current should be limited.

So I could add FTP receiver to the Tone Shifter via a USB hub?

If so what hub would you recommend?

What Are you trying to accomplish?

If you intend to use both Fishman Tripleplay ( a USB Class Compliant MIDI controller), and  Tone Shifter Mega ( as USB Class Compliant AUDIO and MIDI Controller for an iPad  -



Then use a Powered USB Hub to connect both the FTP(USB)  and the Tone Shifter Mega(USB)

I'm trying to accomplish exactly what you've just described lol!

Excellent - thanks for that. Thinking of consolidating the MIDI commander and my iTrack into one (ish)

MeloAudio is deceased

If seeking a ToneShifter Mega, look at the Xsonic Xtone Pro

I recommend NOT buying from the Xsonic page.
They sent me a beat up defective unit that they wanted me to pay for shipping back to China!
Buy  it local, or somewhere you can return the unit if there are issues.

These guys are great and very well priced:

Also, Amazon is a good choice.
