MIDI / iPad Newbie question: I have an old MIDI electric piano and am wondering what I might be able to do with it connected to the iPad.

I just moved my old Yamaha Clavinova CLP-350 (ca. 1988?) home and am wondering what I might do with its MIDI functionality and the iPad. I am a complete newbie to this, but looking at things like iRig and some of the apps, I am wondering if it would be possible to wire the iPad into the loop somehow and use it to control the sounds / waveforms that the piano can produce or play along with. It seems to me like this is the kind of use the in/out/thru plugs would bring to what is otherwise a fairly hard-wired bog standard electric piano with five voices.
I'd be much obliged if anyone could comment on the doability of such a set-up and advise any apps that are suited to this. We have the Korg iMS20 app.
