iPad Music Apps?

Looks like its going to be a fun groovebox

That’s how you miss out if you’re to busy buying apps instead of properly learning them. I never used automation, I never used multiple realtime recordings and layering. Now I saw this video for the first time.
Holy cow, this app is even a million times better than I thought for over a year


I’ve never understood sector, I try but give up.
But would recommend learning how to route things in aum , it’s very flexible.


Yeah, Sector just put me in a bad mood :slight_smile:

Still the best granular app. Others have specific strengths over it. But all around best. I just hope version 2 has midi. I swore off apps but that’ll be a buy.

My moment was watching a new video for version 2. As opposed to peppered red dots, there were thick red bars. Narrow the x/y to a slit and increase the number of grains…

Agree 100%

I hope version 2 is available for iPhone as well. That would be SIGNIFICANTLY more convenient

I’ve been poking around in the Syntorial app the past few days. Solid tutorial.

(I bought the full version during last years Christmas sale- whatever that means for Holliday Sale GAS)

is it realistic to use a new iPad as a multi channel fx processor, for example if I was to run my DT and DN into an iOS compatible interface, and process the two of them with different sets of effects?

Yeah, you can absolutely do this with AUM. You shouldn’t have any CPU issues with a new iPad, I have last years 10.5" Pro and it can handle plenty of effects in real time, and I think this years non-pro is a similar spec?

i have the normal ipad from last year. today i ran an audiobus project with patterning, animoog, borderlands, elastic drums, and some eos instances in parallel and had 95 % cpu. hard to finish a track like that. guess i have to record single tracks down to audio in cubasis

FX don’t use that much.

Apps not named Moog don’t either. :upside_down_face: you pay a high cpu price for that quality.


How about latency? And any specific tips on which audio interface to do this with?

I can relate. I’m finally digging into Moog Model 15, working through Subject Sound’s Modular Synthesis on IOS course. Holy smokes, there’s tons of stuff I wouldn’t have figured out in 10 years of mucking about on it my own - and probably spending too much time buying and messing with a bunch of apps - and Model 15 isn’t even that complicated for a modular synth.


No issues with latency, default is low enough for me not to notice and I have to really push it to get crackles. In some apps you can configure buffer size. The amount of stuff you can run at once is nowhere near a desktop DAW in my experience but plenty for use as a live processor with maybe a synth or two - better looking at the iPad as a supplement to an existing setup than your entire setup imo (though some people do make great tracks entirely on iOS!)

Interface wise, any class compliant usb interface should work via the Lightning to USB adapter (sometimes called camera connection kit). I would get the slightly more expensive one which has both a usb and a Lightning port on the other end so you can charge the iPad while using a usb device. My Focusrite 18i8 works great and I can access all the inputs and outputs individually in apps like AUM


I’m doing exactly the same thing.

busted out model 15 last night for the first time in a long time. Amazing app. Stumbled across this tip on the internet

moebius lab and m15 can be joined together via the audiobridge, essentially adding the modules together into a single system.

Haven’t tried it yet but sounds fun


+1 on this thread. I guess this was one of the most expensive reads for me on this forum… Waiting now for the credit card bill :sweat_smile:

how do you find model 15 app any playable? this is very exciting app at a glance but so clunky and frustrating once you’re trying to dive deep into patching and stuff

I found it pretty well set up, you don’t have to drag the patch points one to the other, you can just tap one point so the jack pops out slightly then just tap an input and they’ll link. Use two fingers to move around the synth. What are you finding clunky about it?
