There may be some instances where you can have 2 computers running EasyWorship simultaneously and only have one operator. For instance, if you are running one computer for your in-house projector and also another computer for your live streaming, but you don't want or have 2 operators to control both computers at the same time. If you have an iPad or iPhone, you can download a MIDI controller app and control both computers remotely using that MIDI controller app.


On each computer, you will need to install Bonjour and rtpMIDI to allow the computer to 'talk' to the mobile device over the Wi-Fi network. Once that's installed, you will need to connect the computer to the mobile device. In this example, I will be connecting to an iPad.


Setting up rtpMIDI


1. Open rtpMIDI on the computer

2. Click the Plus button under the 'My Sessions' box in the top left

    (You will see your computer name show up in the box)

3. Check the box next to your computer name

4. Select your mobile device in the 'Director' box in the bottom left

5. Click Connect

    (You will see your device show up in the 'Participants' box on the right

6. Close rtpMIDI


Installing MIDI Controller app


There are a few MIDI controller apps available. The one we have tested and will show here is called MidiPad and can be downloaded from the App Store.


1. Open the MIDI controller on your mobile device

2. Go to the settings

   (In MidiPad, click Edit in the top right corner)

3. Select how many pads or rows and columns you want and name your pads

4. Exit the MIDI controller settings


Training the MIDI cues with EasyWorship


Note: Perform these steps on both computers where you're wanting to control EasyWorship


1. Open EasyWorship on the computer

2. Click the Remote button on the toolbar

3. Hover over MIDI

4. Click the Plus button in the bottom left corner of that popout window

5. Give it a control name and choose your Input MIDI Device and MIDI Channel

    (The input MIDI device will be the computer name of the computer you're on)

6. Click on the Input Cues tab

7. Click in the box of the function you want to train (ex. Logo On)

8. Click on Train MIDI Cues

9. On your mobile device, press the pad/button that you want to send the cue to perform that function

    (You will see the new note number shown for that pad/button)

10. Continue training all the cues you want to use

    (You only need to click the Train MIDI Cues one time. Just click in the box next to the function you want to train and press the pad/button on the app to train it, repeat till done)

11. Click OK when finished


Controlling EasyWorship


1. Click the Remote button on the toolbar in EasyWorship

2. Hover over MIDI

3. Click the Lock Icon to unlock it and allow the iPad to be able to control

(You will now see a phone icon with the word "Ready" to show it can now take control


Create your schedule and open it on both computers. When you press a pad/button on the MIDIPad app on your iPad or iPhone, it will send the MIDI cue to both computers simultaneously to perform that function.
