First, click on this demo video that Peter Krin from Createdigitalmusic.com obtained from a little “nagging” to the developers. (Persistence goes a long way Peter!).
Until now, the cable connecting your iPad or iPhone to your Mac was unsurpassed by apps. Download Midimux and Audiomux in order to experience this revolutionary connection.
Now you can now connect a keyboard controller to your Mac and use it on your iPad to create a synth. At the same time, you can use an iPad step sequencer to sequence on instrument onto your Mac. This completely eliminates the variable of inconsistency from unreliable wifi networks.
The video above demonstrates the interesting collaboration between iPad and Mac when a MIDI controller is added.
Using Audiomux, you can transfer anything your working on from your iPad to Mac and vice versa. If you have more apple equipment (i.e. an iPhone, iPad, and Mac) you can create your own mini Apple studio with the use of these two apps.

Collaboration Possibilities in Ableton Live w/ Soul Clap
Eli Goldstein, of the praised house music outfit [and Together 2013 artist] Soul Clap, will expose the process of how they collaborate in Ableton Live. Eli will go through certain Ableton Live features that make the process of collaboration not only possible, but fun. He will then invite someone from the audience to come up with their laptop and jam with him, to start the process of collaboration by way of getting ideas recorded into Live from multiple sources. Once these ideas are hatched, Eli will dive into the process of refining the content by way of mixing & editing. A Q&A session will close the workshop.
