This video, via thesoundtestroomUS, takes a look at Midimux and Audiomux, two new apps that are designed to route MIDI and audio, between iOS devices and Macs, over USB:
Using Ableton and some old favorites in FunkBox and Magellan, we first take a look at getting set up to send and receive the midi data, before tackling the audio transfers about five and a half minutes in. These apps are so simple to use, it’s really a monumental achievement to be able to use your iDevices and Mac so seamlessly together. With this combo, you can now use your iPad or iPhone as a true extension of your desktop DAW, without the need for audio or midi interfaces.
Midimux is available now. Audiomux is currently being reviewed by Apple.
