As virtual instruments and audio effects running on iOS improve, musicians increasingly need a way to integrate iPads and iPhones into their Mac-based recording setup. Music IO is a really clever app that lets you stream four stereo audio channels from iOS to your Mac in 32-bit resolution and at low latency, as well as sending MIDI back and forth between the devices.
Install the bridge app and AU (Audio Unit) or VST (Virtual Studio Technology) plug-in on your Mac, and then you can specify any Inter-App Audiocompatible iOS apps, like synths or drum machines, into your digital audio workstation, such as Logic or GarageBand, and record it.
The MIDI side of Music IO enables you to play iOS instruments from your Mac or vice versa. Setting up is simple and this app fills a real gap in the market for musicians.
A smart answer to the pertinent question of how to easily integrate iOS and OS X for music.
