AudioBus Save-State and synchronisation across MORE THAN ONE iPad.
One of the drawbacks of using a single iPad is that one has to keep switching between apps to control different aspects of one's project. Having hardware midi controllers can alleviate this a little but not altogether since many apps have features best operated just from the screen. So..... why not use several iPads in a live set - all linked over a new AB protocol - over wifi for midi but with a means of routing digital audio to some central mixer - digital or other...
Imagine this: being able to use several iPads - with different instruments used on each -in order to gain DSP power- but mainly so that one can have direct access to two or more synths or music iOS apps visually - at the same time.
An AudioBus standard where with iPads feeding a mixer via the audio-outs on each device - allowed Animoog to be open and showing in iPad A, a few synth apps operating in the background - but on a second iPad we have a MIDI arpeggiator showing - but the MIDI gets sent over wi-fi or some other means - to several instances of AudioBus - so for example - BeatMaker could be playing some plugins on iPad three - but also sending MIDI to iPad 1 and two.
And by use of the MIXER page - the volume levels on all three iPads of all instruments hosted inside AB on any of the three iPads - get to be controlled.
And AudioBus would be able to save and load the state of ALL the AB setups and plugins across ALL iPads and - so that loading up a session on iPad A ( say the "master" ) would automatically cause Audiobus on iPad 2 and 3 to load up their ( different ) collection of instruments.
BE CLEAR - I am not talking about just Audiobus Remote" functionality - but something much more like in effect making - say 3 iPads operate - AudioBus-wise - as if they were all one iPad.
