Postby mikeparent; Mon Feb 27, 2017 10:26 am Rebuilding my Rig. Wanting to go full-on iPad-based.

Hello all. After my last band folded I got kinda bummed and "withdrew" from all things musical. I sold my old Muse Receptor and moved on with my life. After being away from all this stuff for like 4 years I recently got contacted by an old bandmate and I am getting the itch again.

Before my last band collapsed, I was using (in addition to my vocal gear as singing is my primary thing) an M-Audio Axiom Pro and a Roland AX-7 driving an *early* Muse Receptor. I have since sold off my Receptor but still have the Axiom and the Keytar.

For some time back then I was toying with the idea of an iPad-based rig. I just totalled up all the music app purchases I made back then and it shocked me so I figure with that investment, I owe it to myself (with a potential venture in the works) to revisit this.

iMIDIPATCHBAY *seems* to be the thing that was missing from the equation back in the day: a way to tie the apps into a cohesive setup with a controller.

So who out there is using iPads in a live setting and what has your experience been like? Receommendations? Pitfalls? etc.


Thanks!

Mike

Sorry, I can't help you directly.

But http://discchord.com/ seems to be the goto site for music creation on iOS devices. Hope it helps.

On iOS check out AUM, Audiobus, MIDImux, and go from there...

There's people on the audiobus forum using iPads live as well.

Just an update in case anyone finds this thread in search of answers for a similar problem. :)

For closing in on a year now, I have been in an all-80s dance/party band as the co-lead singer and secondary keys player. I have put together an iPad-based rig using:

Roland AX-7 Keytar -> Yamaha MD-BT01 bluetooth MIDI adapter -> iPad (2017)

Apps:
OnSong: for lyrics and setlist organization. When I switch songs it pushes MIDI PC messages (IAP) to the following synths:
Korg iM1: This is my bread and butter synth for *most* sounds I need
JimAudio Poison-202: Mostly for bass sounds
AudioKit FM Player: for all my FM needs :)
Korg iMonoPoly: Arpeggiations
Moog Model D: Replacing Animoog as my go to virtual analog synth
Fingerlab DM1: Percussion and FX samples

Aside from the occasional reboot required to get the audio working again it has performed flawlessly

Are you using an audio interface?

You shouldn't be needing a reboot to get audio going again, you need to find which of those synths is being a dick and get a replacement in.
If your plugin is a C++ creation, please don't say so.
If it is, pop round Marcos, he has just bought you a Mac to port it.

Nope - straight out of the headphone jack to a stereo DI.

I am not sure if its even related to a synth. Occasionally I will pull out my ipad and have no audio whatsoever. Not after a synth session. I am not saying it isnt one of the synths but it *feels* more like an iOS bug.
