Audiobus: Use your music apps together.
What is Audiobus? — Audiobus is an award-winning music app for iPhone and iPad which lets you use your other music apps together. Chain effects on your favourite synth, run the output of apps or Audio Units into an app like GarageBand or Loopy, or select a different audio interface output for each app. Route MIDI between apps — drive a synth from a MIDI sequencer, or add an arpeggiator to your MIDI keyboard — or sync with your external MIDI gear. And control your entire setup from a MIDI controller.Download on the App Store
Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

I often don't understand the way this community operates.
As iOS music makers we have unprecedented access to the people who create the tools upon which we rely.
Often these are lone individuals working on apps in whatever spare time they are able to find. They have families and day jobs, work with essentially no budget and yet they're expected to be simultaneously online and responding to messages, adding in new features as per endless requests, and creating new apps - all the time.
Obviously I'm not addressing this to everyone - and perhaps those who have the most bizarrely entitled attitudes won't even recognise themselves in the description of their behaviours - but it's a curious environment to be around when people who essentially take money out of developers' pockets are held aloft as heroes whilst the developers themselves are bombarded with unreleastic requests and burdened with absurd expectations.
