Connect FracPad III

Android (wired)

This requires a compatible USB adapter, called "USB OTG". This works with the AX8, FX8 and Axe-Fx II/III models.

No reliable wireless solution (Bluetooth) has been found yet, but most functions will be okay on Bluetooth.

Axe-Fx II and iOS (wired, wireless)

Wired – Requires a MIDI-to-USB interface, because the USB port on the Axe-Fx II doesn't operate as USB host. Use a USB-to-MIDI interface like Roland's UM-One in conjunction with the "USB camera adapter" for Apple devices.

Wireless – Bluetooth. The Yamaha MD-BT01 interface is recommended. It connects to the MIDI IN and OUT ports on the Axe-Fx II. Launch the app "Midimittr" (AppStore) to enable the communication, followed by launching FracPad.

AX8 or FX8 and iOS (wired, wireless)

Wired – Requires a USB connection, because the AX8 and FX8 do not support editing through MIDI. Use the "USB camera adapter" for Apple devices.

Wireless – Bluetooth. Try Yamaha's UD-BT01 interface and verify that it runs firmware 1.04 or later (run the Yamaha UD/MD utility, available in the US / Canadian app store). Launch the app "Midimittr" (AppStore) to enable the communication, followed by launching FracPad.

Axe-Fx III and iOS (wired, wireless)

Wired – Requires a USB connection. Use the "USB camera adapter" for Apple devices.

Wireless – Bluetooth. Try Yamaha's MD-BT01 interface and verify that it runs firmware 1.04 or later (run the Yamaha UD/MD utility, available in the US / Canadian app store). Launch the app "Midimittr" (AppStore) to enable the communication, followed by launching FracPad III.

Axe-Fx II, AX8 or FX8 and iOS (wireless)

A Bluetooth connection requires Bluetooth LE (Low Energy), so make sure that the iOS device handles Bluetooth 4.0+. This requires at least an iPad 3 or iPhone 4s. (source)

Bluetooth operations on Android are not officially supported, so use at your own risk.
