Audiomux V2 Turns Your iPad, iPhone into the Ultimate Plug-in

Audiomux already changed how we use our iPhones and iPads. Out: juggling cables and audio interfaces just to record an app. In: using apps seamlessly on your computer via just a Lightning or (30-pin) Dock cable. Well, if that didn’t make you interested in plugging your iPad into your DAW, this should. Using an app as a synth or effect on iOS is now about to be as easy as adding a plug-in — even on Windows. Audiomux isn’t the only game in town. Apple announced this month at its developer conference that was baking some basic functionality into iOS …

MIDI and Audio Over iOS Cable: Here’s How, Available Now

We’ve seen the future, and it’s … back to wires. First, we saw midimux connect any MIDI app or hardware on your iOS device to any MIDI software or hardware connected to your Mac. Plus in a 30-pin or Lightning cable, run some software on each end, and connect anything. Then, we saw the promise of audiomux – doing the same thing for audio streams. Now, audiomux is available on the App Store, not only individually, but as a bundle with midimux. (The developers initially asked midimux users to wait while that bundle became available, to avoid overspending.) And, as …

LK Gives Your iPad or Android Tablet Easy Control of Ableton Live [Gallery, Hands on]

Ableton Live is happily running on your laptop. It’s not yet running on your iPad or tablet, or optimized in any way for touch. And that’s left a window wide open for touch controllers. Now, the question is, is there room for yet another control app? touchAble retains the crown for all-around control of Ableton Live; there’s very little this app doesn’t do, from replicating Live devices to MIDI editing to custom templates. But the relaunched LK, released today, has a few reasons for consideration, as an alternative or complement to other solutions. First, if you’re an Android user, LK’s …

Here’s How To Connect the iPad’s Easiest Pattern Maker to Your Mac [Video Tutorial]

Remember the days of clicking laboriously to add notes to a piano roll editor? Well, that’s a bit silly nowadays if there’s a touchscreen sitting next to your desk. You probably want to make use of it – and maybe without stumbling around helper apps and wifi configuration. We’ve already seen how Auxy, the iPad pattern editor, reduced a widely-known music process to its simplest elements. The recent addition of MIDI opens it up to external hardware. But it also makes a nice example of what the new utility midimux can do: connecting this app to the wealth of sounds …

Now, Across iOS and Mac, Everything is Musically Connected [Video]

There’s a high-bandwidth cable connecting that iPad or iPhone to your Mac. And yet … and yet, until recently, music apps treated that very connection as an impossible-to-cross canyon. No more. We already took a look at midimux, a tool that makes everything that speaks MIDI on an iOS gadget available to your Mac, and visa versa. That’s already cool. You can use a keyboard controller plugged into your Mac to play a soft synth on your iPad. You can sequence an instrument on your computer from an iPad step sequencer, with touch control. Hardware and desktop software and apps …

Soon Your iPad Will Be Wired Into Your Music Studio: Midimux

What if any iOS app could talk to any gear, and any gear could talk to any app – none of this stumbling around with wireless, but over good, stable wires and plugs? What if, from your Mac, you could see any app or connected hardware on your iPad or iPhone? And what if on your iPad or iPhone, you could see any MIDI device connected to your computer? (Mmm… remember when Apple talked about “hubs of your digital life”? Well, for MIDI now.) I bet if you could do that, if you could make any instrument talk to any …
