C. Willits
Guitarist and electronic musician Christopher Willits continues his monthly series from SoundArts studio. In this episode, Willits proves the future is now by showing you how your iPhone can control Ableton and Max/MSP.

Tune in once a month as Christopher shows us some of the ways he produces his own music, as well as the many cool things you can do with recording software.

I was able to use iPhone with VDMX as a MIDI controller using an app called akaRemote. havent rejailbroken, but looks like I wont have to, considering VDMX uses OSC devices. must research further…rad stuff, thanks for posting.
