Those who know me know I’ve been involved in iOS music content production since the old Looptastic on a 1st gen iPhone and I got my start producing loops back in 1998 when I worked at Sonic Foundry editing for Acid Pro.

MIDIFLOW KEYBOARD allows you to perform music with multiple synth apps at the same time. Use the piano or scale layout to play single notes, and select the chord keyboard for accompaniments.
MIDIFLOW MOTION lets you control effect parameters of other apps – in a way that no touch screen can replace – by moving the device. Set any kind of MIDI command like volume or modulation as output and fine-tune it to the exact motion range you want to perform with. You can even control multiple effects simultaneously.
MIDIFLOW SPLITTER lets you create split and layer configurations in an easy but powerful way. If you play your synth apps with an external keyboard, it is an essential tool for you. Thanks to Audiobus State Saving, everything can be saved and recalled when your show is about to start.
MIDIFLOW LIMITER is a filter and remapper for note velocities. Filter out notes that are too loud or too quiet, or remap them to different values. Use multiple instances to create velocity layers, which trigger different sounds based on the notes’ velocity.
MIDIFLOW SCALES lets you filter out unwanted notes or remap them to a scale. Thin out tracks from a sequencer to create a reduced variation. Prevent wrong notes when playing on a keyboard. Generate harmonies by using the app in combination with Midiflow Transposer.
MIDIFLOW RANDOMIZER can be used to add a human touch to note sequences or to find inspiration. Randomize notes, note velocities, and timing just by specifying a desired range of variations. With the help of Midiflow Scales, you can keep your randomized notes in harmony.
MIDIFLOW TRANSPOSER lets you shift notes by octaves and half-tones. This is useful if you want play an external keyboard in a different tone. You can also use it to create harmonies, i.e. create a second voice in an interval.
MIDIFLOW MONITOR shows you what MIDI is doing in your Audiobus setup. Just add it into one or more MIDI effect ports and the app will print what is going through. This can help you find problems or just understand how MIDI works.

Open up new worlds of creative music making possibilies with Audiobus, the app that lets you use your music apps together, just like virtual cables.
Send live audio or MIDI from one Audiobus-compatible app to another: add effects on top of your favourite synth, use your favourite step sequencer to drive the whole lot, and record it all in your favourite DAW, sampler or looper. Plug in a MIDI keyboard, run it through an arpeggiator or a key quantizer, and record the result in your DAW, or drive several different sound generators with a keyboard splitter. The possibilities are endless.
State saving. Then save your setup in a preset to be restored with one touch later on.

iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle).
You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Sony Creative, Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
