The coming 1.13 update adds Core MIDI support which allows you to hook up USB MIDI controllers, but unfortunately this only works on the iPad.

You could download the free OSX version of NanoStudio - this supports MIDI devices. You could then compose on your MacBook, export the project file to your phone using NanoSync and continue composing on the move.

Hi all,

well, with the use of Soundflower I am now able to route Nanostudio into Logic and using IAC I'm able to control it from the sequencer. How very cool indeed. It's shame all the other iPhone music apps never thought to make a standalone version that runs from your Mac/PC, so a big thanks to Blip for doing that :)

Soundflower is available for free here - http://cycling74.com/products/soundflower/
Cheers! :)

Btw, Running on an iMac 2.4 Intel Core Duo - OSX 10.5.8 - Logic Pro 9.1.3

Any chance of you writing a short guide on how to get this to work? I'm on OS X 10.7 and using Logic Pro 9.17. Trying to send MIDI data from Logic to NS using the IAC driver seems to do nothing (no audio, or intermittent noise), and trying to route audio back from there to Logic is a complete failure so far. I've never really tried to do something like this and I'd be indebted to you if you could help out!

I have managed to input midi via iac bus but can't for the life of me see how you can route the audio out of Nano Studio into Soundflower.
I would really appreciate your help.

You can't. Nanostudio only outputs via the main out.

You can definitely do it with Jack and I'm sure you could do it with Soundflower if you set it up as a default audio device in OSX audio/midi setup utility. I will check and report back.
