I find it hard to believe that I'm the first person to ask for it.

I know latency would be an issue, but I'm generally connected via an adhoc network for MIDI anyway, so that would cut down on it somewhat....

Nope, I've tried it and found that AirPlay has a *2 SECOND* latency (at least to the appleTV). Clearly, Apple did not have interactive audio in mind when they designed that spec.

AirPlay has nothing to do with network midi, anyway, it's just audio/video.

I know they're unrelated, I just meant that I'm already setting up the adhoc network when using the iPad live with the laptop, so it wouldn't be more setup.

I've noticed crazy latency when broadcasting to the AppleTV too, but I've also seen it when using MIDI over my regular wifi network. It's unusable, IMHO, but that completely goes away when using it over an adhoc connection directly to the laptop. So it's possible that the AirPlay latency would be lessened when using the diret adhoc network too, I'll experiment with it tonight and see what the deal is.
