Ratings and Reviews
The good and the bad
Using with Studio One... Audio works great, at least from iOS to PC... haven't tried the other way yet. Midi is an absolute nightmare... the documentation is awful. They really don't explain it at all. I've kind of gotten it to work, but every time I get one aspect figured out, another stops working. Get studio one receiving midi notes from an iOS sequencer? Check... except now there's no midi sync for some reason. These guys make really ambitious apps, which would be some of the best on iOS if they worked right. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but since they provide horrible documentation, I'm forced to play it by ear.
Tldr; audio was surprisingly easy to set up and works great. If you want to get midi between iPad and PC, there's probably a much better way to do it than this.
To the reviewer who stated he kept getting audio bus software not installed: you need to click on the add plug-in button at the top of the screen. I had the same issue until I figured it out.
I am going to rate this app four stars even though it keeps crashing on me. I have two synth apps installed on my iPad. Ripplemaker and Animoog. Ripplemaker is way more stable than Animoog which crashes the Studiomux app very often.
Studiomux is the app that I've been waiting for. It's awesome to be able to interface your iPad with your DAW with no additional hardware needed. I think that once they get all the bugs ironed out, this is going to be a great piece of software. I'm looking forward to future updates.
So... I wouldn’t depend on it
It’s a good thing I do more music on the phone rather than using it in conjunction with my PC, because this app never quite seems to be reliable. Now there have been updates and it seems a bit more stable and doesn’t ask for Audiobus 2, etc. but my latest issue when i tried it minutes ago is that the audio on the PC sounds like it’s underwater (sounds fine coming out of iPhone speaker). I reinstalled everything on the iPhone and PC, restarted both, reconnected both, and even tried studiomux in two different DAWs. No joy. Still wavering warbling garbage. I think I’d get a hardware solution if I needed reliability.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
