    ProRemote Light Edition

    by Far Out Labs

    ProRemote is a professional-level universal app for controlling your Digital Audio Workstation. It was easy to setup by installing a WiFi server app on your computer that runs in the background. With many of these WiFi controller apps it is necessary to launch the server app before using with your computer, but with ProRemote the server quietly runs in the background and connects quickly. Skins and support are included for Pro Tools, Live, Logic, Cubase, Soundtrack Pro and Digital Performer. The app even changes skins automatically based on your DAW software. It is great for adding automation from your iPad when mixing your tracks. Through in-app purchase more features may be added, but the downside is that this app then becomes one of the most expensive apps on the app store.

    AC-7 Pro Control Surface

    by Saitara Software

    AC-7 Pro Control Surface is a much more affordable virtual mixer for controlling your DAW. It has built-in support for Logic and Digital Performer and limited support for Pro Tools. The interface adapts to the program that your using it with and provides many tools beyond the simple faders. However, its Pro Tools support is limited and you miss out on many of the tools for automation settings and other features beyond the basic fader control, but the price is right for its feature set.

    Pianist Pro

    by MooCowMusic

    For those who want to use their iPad as a MIDI keyboard, Pianist Pro is a great synthesizer app. Its built-in sounds, recorder, metronome, and drum machine make it a great app on its own. But you can also link up Pianist Pro to your computer for use as a MIDI controller using its support for OSC (Open Sound Control). Some MIDI apps are now supporting OSC directly, but you can still use Pianist Pro with older MIDI apps by downloading a free program, Pure Data. Setup for this is more complicated than the other apps mentioned. You need to be comfortable with both MIDI port settings, as well as WiFi port settings to get this app to respond. But if you already have Pianist Pro and love using it, you will want to check out these additional features.

    Remote for GarageBand

    by Maui Media Lab

    Remote for GarageBand is just that, a keypad-style iPhone app to control playback and settings for GarageBand. In addition to standard playback and recording controls, you can also add new tracks, toggle the metronome, save, undo, and control zoom. The design is not particularly beautiful and there are latency and stability bugs, but if you're into GarageBand it is worth a look.
