Jim's T&T Integrating iPad into Keyboard Rig with Mainstage

Jim McLaren of INCURA here. This video explores how to integrate an iPad or external MIDI sound module, into a standard keyboard rig using Apple mainstage.  Using Audiobus, I load up three powerful synthesizers in the iPad and then use mainstage to switch between them and integrate them with other sounds within mainstage.

Using this technique, you never have to do any switching on your iPad and you can use the same keyboard controller that you would use to control mainstage. You can also adjust splits and layers the same way you would with any other patch with the mainstage. Very useful and powerful options here!
