When you open Logic Remote, it attempts to connect to the software running on your Mac, so you must have Logic Pro, GarageBand, or MainStage running. Otherwise, Logic Remote will shut down. If you have more than one of these applications running, you’re asked to choose the application you want to control. After you’re connected, you can control the application using your iPad or iPhone.

In this chapter, you learn how to use your iOS device to play software instruments, edit your tracks, mix your project, and write songs.
