Controlling Garageband with Helix via MIDI over USB?


Recommended Posts

I know I can connect the Helix to my iPad via USB using the Camera Connection Kit. I have one, but it's at my buddy's house, and won't be able to get it until Sunday to play with it.


Anyway, I'm wondering if I can use Helix to control Garageband on iPad via MIDI over USB? I would like to be able to assign a footswitch on Helix that is able to control playback for backing tracks/jam tracks on Garageband, and potentially other functions as well. Will also be playing it back through the Helix to my FRFR speakers (Alto TS110a).


Is this possible, or if not, is there an app that will work for this?


Would love to be able to have my iPad, Variax, Helix, and a PA speaker for a complete one-man-band type of thing!
