I use AUM as a host for several instruments as well as effects and whatnot. I am finding it stable for the most part, the underlying AUv3 modules vary widely in stability, recoverability, etc. I use a small Tascam USB interface w/midi to get sounds in and out of my iPad. I tried with bluetooth and the latency wasn't working for me. I also found that sounds generated by the USB interface sounded a bit better than what was coming out of the headphone.

Add a powered USB hub and that's my new rig :)



Hey this sounds really cool. Which Tascam USB Interface w/midi do you use? Also, which USB hub did you use?

As I only have the Electro 6D 73, I have no pitch bend or mod wheel, so I'll need to integrate some kind of midi controller keyboard into my setup.

And finally, did you end up trying it on that gig?

Thanks,

Marc

Generic powered USB hub and link to the interface is here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08MF ... UTF8&psc=1

The Tascam is good for a starter unit, but I'm going to be looking at something that's more suitable to gigging. The only thing keeping me from gigging with it is time: time to do additional preset configs as well as time to build confidence in the stability of the rig.

But the sounds are awesome :)
I think I have gear issues ....

I'm still trying to wrap my head around how this is all connected.

Do you use the 1 USB connection on the tascam unit to connect to the iPad via lightning cable, and then use the MIDI out from your controller to the tascam?

Where is the USB hub used?

Thanks

The connection is iPad <-> Lightning-USB Adapter*<-> USB Hub - > multiple USB Devices (Audio Card, MIDI Keyboards,...)

* (USBc-USB 2/3 adapter for newer iPads)

Hi maxpiano, I use Camelot Pro as well and I have iM1. I want to do this but I cannot find info on Program Change values. Mind sharing info? I assume you created a smart map for it like an
unmapped synth?


Thanks.

Hi, actually I am adding the iM1 presets one by one as I need them, Bank/Program change logic basically is that the LSB selects the "card" and the Program Change the patch within that card (MSB is always 0); make some tests and you will see that it is easier to do than explain

Is Nord “class compliant” with iOS?

Yes but only as MIDI, no Audio.
