I have an iPhone, and am in the process of building my business case
for an iPad
I already use some music apps on the iPhone, and am looking forward
to getting stuck into some of the iPad only apps such as the Korg IMS-20 and iElectribe
(although the iPad will fulfil a number of functions for me, mostly work-related rather
And now, the question... all the music apps I have on the iPhone
allow some sort of file export, but this generally only a stereo mix of the various
channels that make up the tracks. Is this common with all iOS music apps? I would have
thought that many users would be keen to create, say a drumbeat in iMaschine, and then
export the individual elements separately for further mangling in a DAW - but as far as I
can tell, this isn't possible.
Is this a limitation of iOS, or do the app
developers not want us developing the output of their tools further on a PC / Mac? Or is
this just not a problem for most people? The kind of power available in iMaschine and
iElectribe means a crying shame we can't easily use them in full-blown mixes.
I know where my towel is.
