hi!i am restructuring my hardware setup and thinking of either getting a digital mixer or an ios solutionbefore buying i have a couple of questions:1. will the app work with my focusrite scarlett 18i20 including an adat converter?2. will i be able to use midi from the interface as well and if so could I for example use an octatrack to send midi into aum triggering a synth plugin like isem for example3. does the app offer snapshots, fading between those and midi control (i had a digital yamaha mixer ages ago and used those features for live performances) so that i could Play live and have different mixer Settings which i Switch in between using midi commands4. is it possible to sidechain compressors?5. i read no Support for midi clock :( I can understand that someone might want to split from this old and really Buggy Technology but electronic Music instruments usually use this protocol to sync between each other and with a suitable sync device (like a erm multiclock for example) it should be possible to get a relieable sync in between hard and Software.so what would be the way to sync to external gear? use a midiclock to link app and sync to link? i want to jam with my hardware, mix on the ipad and record for later track production (in live on my mac) , i read you can record perfectly synced / looping loops. how would i do this if my external gear is synced to a midi clock signal coming from a dedicated clock generator?how stable is the app? live situation stable?cheers, jensthanks for helping
Hmm, all I can say is that the dev of Midibus is pretty proud of his clock, and seems one of the most accurate app doing that. And it indeed does only one thing...I just see that it can also be mapped and has tap tempo :)http://audeonic.boards.net/thread/297/converting-cc-0xfa-0xfc-midibusFunny, I didn't remeber doing this post, and remeber how I gave up IOS music 2 years ago, because all ecosystem was not ready yet...http://audeonic.boards.net/thread/131/start-stop-on-station-keyboardWhat I actually do is having the start/stop button of Modstep assigned to a midi pad, so Modstep generates the master the clock, Modstep is in sync to IAA, and AUM manage IAA and Link...So while I click on that pad, Modstep starts, launch his clock, and on an other pad (assigned by midi learn into AUM), I can start/stop IAA, which controls Link as well.It works quite well.Instead of using a wav, you might have a simple IAA or Link app launched in AUM ( I don't know if you want to record into AUM external gears or internal synths...) let's say Modstep, and Modstep would be slaved to your ACME...I will try again with Midibus as master clock to see if it's better than the Modstep's clock... :)
sending just one clock isnt going to do the trick as every hardware with an internal sequencer has a different offset. so sending to a machinedrum needs another offset than sending to an electribe for example. if there is just one stream of midi clock you wont be able to sync the boxes using a midi splitter.
ohh one last question - why aren't there any snapshots? when doing something live it would be so cool if this was possible so the mixing stuff could just be controlled by my octatrack sending program changes to the ipad running aum which then switches the setting. obviously adding or removing modules would make the sound skip but I am probably going to keep things simple anyway. eq, compressor, some send effects and maybe some limiting on the master.
edit 2: having another thread regarding this topic on elektronauts. how would i record in sync? lets say the app and my hardware run in sync. how can i record so the start and endpoint of the file will be synced and where do i record?
you say using a hardware compressor through an aux way?
I think it would be great if you could group channels so you can fold and unfold them, swithcing inserts on and off would be awesome. maybe some tabs oin the side so you could press a tab and have just your subgroups, all outputs of one instrument, or any other useful view.
also changing the size of the channels would be cool
i am stunned that i can run midi in and trigger ios instruments. so i can keep sequencing with the octatrack externally and use plugins wihout any trouble. if midiremote with the bcr2000 works well this would be a really luxury digital console.
the snapshots would be awesome. i used to make liveacts back in the days and if there is a bassdrum in one track more of a 909 style it will need different eq and compressor setting than a bassdrum of a 808 style. there are ways to get around not being able to automate the mixer but i really liked that feature when i had the yamaha digital console
you say using a hardware compressor through an aux way? hmm the problem is that good compressors are ridiciously expensive. a distressor stereo is worth 3600 euros. too much for me. i was thinking of diy'ing a 1176 or get a clone. well havent thought this through. there are really good software compressors out there not sure if on ios though.

regarding the snapshots
Again let me say. I am stunned by the concept and what is on the table so far. Also the support is outstanding. I can imagine this to get really big.
