How to record AUfx MIDI OUT on iPhone
There is well known workaround for recording AUfx MIDI OUT into Nanostudio sequencer using MIDI Tools Route plugin on iPad. Unfortunately this plugin is not available on iPhone. But there is other way !
Few facts for better understanding of workflow described below.
- by default, selected Nanostudio track receives MIDI from all available MIDI input ports (which means you don't need to do anything special, except of selecting track, to receive / record all incoming MIDI data from all available ports on your device
- only "External MIDI" instrument can sends notes into MIDI out port
Now. Let's suppose i have track in NS which has on FX slot Rozetta Arp. I want to feed Dixie FM with out of Rozzeta Arp and i want to record this output into sequencer track where is Dixie FM loaded.
As you can see at first two screenshots, i have 2 tracks - one with "External MIDI" instrument, where i loaded Rozetta in AU MiDI fx slot, and other track with Dixie..
At this screenshot, you can see that Dixie is playing notes from Arp and those notes are also recorded into sequencer
How is this possible ? It is simple. There is running "Midiflow" app with virtual IN / OUT MIDI ports on background.
In NS, i have "MIDIFLOW.IN" port set as output in "External MIDI" inszrument
This way, all MIDI notes from this track containing Rozetta are send to MIDIFLOW and from MIDIFLOW back to currently selected channel in NS (which is DixieFM channel in my case). So, this channel plays plays / records received incoming notes.
Similiard concept is possible also with AUM instead of MIDIFLOW (or theoretically with any app which is capable of forwarding all incomimg MIDI data from it's input to it's output...
You don't need to be afraid of recorded note duplicates if it loops - Nanostudio is smart enough to record same note on same position just once
