Need help with routing and apps (Live setup)
I've been using Garageband as the center of my live setup for a while. I prepare all the tracks in there that are not played live and I choose the live instrument to play on top. Now I want to use a vocoder as well but couldn't figure out the best way to do it.
I want the vocoder to be fed MIDI from a prepared MIDI track so that I don't have to use the keyboard for the vocoder.
I thought I could do this in AUM. I can turn Garageband projects into sound files and open them in AUM, entering the bpm and signature. I can choose the "live" synth in there as well and configure my controller to send MIDI to that app. Then one app could send a prepared MIDI track (which app?) to vocoder (which app?) so I can sing without playing the notes for the vocoder.
Would this work? Seems like I will be heavily relying on the file player of the AUM. I have AUM but haven't used it much so I don't know how easy this will be, especially when changing songs.
Is there any better way to go about this?
TL;DR: I use Garageband for everything. I want to add a vocoder into the mix but I need the vocoder to be fed by a prepared MIDI track. What is the best way to do it for a live setup?
