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.
