AudioBus, the app that facilitates communication between iOS audio and MIDI apps, has had an update to version 3.3 that adds some rather cool new functionality - MIDI Learn, for greatly enhanced MIDI control of sessions from hardware. Here's what the developers told us about it.

MIDI foot switches, control surfaces and other MIDI sources can now control every aspect of award-winning iOS audio and MIDI app Audiobus, with the exciting new MIDI Learn feature launching today.

Audiobus 3.3 is available today for iPad and iPhone and introduces powerful new MIDI Learn features. An extensive range of functionality can now be controlled via a foot switch, control surface, grid controller or any other MIDI input device.
