Multi Channel Audio Routing iOS 6
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Multi Channel Audio Routig iOS 6

Multiple outputs on iPad. Multi-channel and multi-route audio is now possible with iOS 6 and up. This means that apps like Djay by Algoriddim can do independent stereo output to both the headphone jack, as well as via an HDMI or USB audio out adapter for the dock or lightning connector. That means Djs can pre-cue their music in djay on their headphone, before sending them out live over the other connection to their audience.

  • 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.
