Hey, thanks for the comment on the "insyructions". ;) Let us know what you are having trouble with and we can help you get things running.

The PX-8 can be set to respond to MIDI Program Changes and/or Control Changes. A Program Change is usually used for recalling preset combinations of the loops and Control Changes are usually used to switch individual loops.

Here is a video showing an iPad running MIDI Designer being used to control the individual loops on a HEX switcher (but it can just as easily be a PX-8 instead).

What would you like to do with the PX-8 from your iPad? What MIDI messages can your MIDI App send?
