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.
Alesis iO Dock with iPad Air OS 8 Does it work?
There seems to be ongoing controversy on this: http://community.alesis.com/alesis/topics/io-dock-with-ipad-3-ios-8-compatibility . I found a good deal on CL for one. I understand the lightning adapter issue. That's no big deal, but I just want to make sure about running 8 with it before I buy the dock. Is anyone here successfully using the Alesis dock with iPad air OS 8?
