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.
Bluetooth midi controllers with additional functions
So I already have the Akai lpk 25 Air as a basic Bluetooth midi keyboard but I am looking for something more advanced
I need a controller that triggers them record function in GarageBand let me change presets in multiple instrument Apps and ideally has some effects I can control without needing to do extra mapping but this is not necessary
I am testing out the Orba 2 right now and I really like the expressiveness of this instrument but 8 keys are a bit limiting and I’m thinking of giving it back also because the sampling capability only seems to work with a computer and I don’t have one
I’ve seen the nano key studio from korg which here in Germany costs exactly the same as the orba is that something you would recommend?
I wish the launchkey mini had Bluetooth capabilities because that looks nice also although I don’t know if it would fit all my needs
I was at a local music store yesterday but the guy had no idea of iPad music production and couldn’t tell me if the midi controllers they had could perform the things I needed on iPad so it was useless
I am happy for any suggestions
