Just tested again after a long absence because I missed using ios apps as a studiomux effect. Couldn’t get that to work but took it slow…
Saw that my ipad once again had 18 outputs / inputs to osx in audiomidi setup as an aggregated device so began to have some hope.
Got studiomux to receive midi and had one IAA instrument (animoog) working perfectly with ableton live – was sending midi from my keyboard through ableton, to studiomux to animoog (only reason why I’m spelling it out is that animoog could see multiple midi sources – my network, studiomux, my keyboard, etc, so needed to make sure that all were flowing / handing off).
Got audio back via studiomux into ableton live in the same channel - strangely at first I had to create a second audio channel with an external in from the 1-2 iPad output, but at some point I realized it had doubled up and audio was coming back on the animoog/studiomux midi channel much like a normal virtual instrument… great!
I tried creating a second IAA instrument to have another midi channel send to but then lost the audio of the first one. At one point futzing around gave me the original animoog audio back into ableton but not the second instrument (let’s say Audiokit D1) - though D1’s audio COULD be heard from the ipad speakers – so at that time I had one instrument sending audio back into ableton but not the other. Weird.
Played around but every so often the aggregate device would crash and the ipad would be disabled in audiomidi.
It’d be fantastic to have the virtual audio inputs/outputs via lightning but it feels like something is being forced to comply to IDAM’s stereo track only; can anyone else confirm?
