Secret Base Design has updated Music IO, adding the ability to route audio over USB between iOS and Mac OS X.
- Music IO lets you send audio from your iOS device to your Mac using USB;
- Music IO lets you route audio between your iOS device and your Mac over USB;
- Music IO lets you integrate Inter-App Audio compatible iOS synthesizers with a traditional desktop DAW system; and
- The developers say using Music IO over USB offers ‘near-zero latency’.
Here’s what’s new in version 1.10:
Version 1.10 brings audio over USB.
With Inter-App Audio support built in, you can host synthesizer and effect apps within Music IO, and send the audio to a Mac with low latency. All audio data is transmitted in 32-bit floating point, so there’s no degradation of sound.
Music IO integrates both audio and bi-directional MIDI functionality into a single app. It’s simple, easy-to-use, and better yet: one app means less processing and memory demands on your iOS device. This lets you use more instruments, create more complicated sounds, and add more (and more sophisticated) effects.
Music IO is available from the App Store for US $6.99.
Note: A Music IO server app is required on the OS X side. It’s a free download from teh Music IO site.
