Using Your iPad with Absynth
To be fair to all of the really amazing app developers out there, this video is a couple of years out now, and I am sure that a quick search in the Apple app store for wireless MIDI controller would provide several different options to the one featured in this video. The other thing to take note of right away is that this does require a wireless network that you can join, so the two devices can connect in real time. Now that all fo that is out of the way, this is a very cool lesson in how to set up a basic MIDI controller app on an iOS device and have it be recognized by your Mac. PC users will have a slightly different setup, but really no more difficult than what is presented here.
The app featured is called Pianist Pro and really is as easy to set up and use as he makes it appear in the video. It makes using your iPad with Absynth, or any other synth, a breeze. Now if you want a more robust controller, perhaps to manipulate some of the more obscure paramaters and features found throughout Absynth, I would probably recommend something more along the lines of touchAble or eyoControl, as these types of apps give you more options for MIDI mapping and various ways to control your sounds. Most apps like these are universal, in regards to synth and DAW, so they should all work just fine with Absynth.
