Configuring your software
Turn on Bluetooth
First, you must make sure Bluetooth is turned on. All recent Macs have Bluetooth built-in.
- Use the Apple menu to go to System Preferences
- Click on the Bluetooth icon, and under
the Settings tab, check Turn Bluetooth On.
- While you're there, check Show Bluetooth status in the menu
bar, so you can turn Bluetooth on and off without having to go into
System Preferences every time.
- From now on you can use the Bluetooth icon at the top
right of your screen to turn Bluetooth on and off:
Turn on the IAC Driver
- Open Applications, Utilities, Audio MIDI Setup, then select the
MIDI Devices tab
- Double click IAC Driver to open device properties
- Ensure that Device is online is checked
- Apply changes and quit Audio MIDI Setup
Configure your MIDI software
You must have an application capable of reading MIDI signals to use
WiiToMidi. If you haven't got anything suitable, download the demo of
Ableton Live from www.ableton.com.
In the application's preferences you need to tell it to accept MIDI
input from the IAC Device. Check your software's documentation to
learn how to do this. (In Ableton Live you have to go
to Preferences/MIDI-Sync, and enable IAC Driver (Bus 1) for
Track and/or Remote inputs.
