Good Day,

I've been trying to solve this bugger for couple of days before posting here
Basically the subject says it all, but i'll provide some background.

during the last few weeks I've purchased many nice music software from the apple store, such as iShred and Smule Piano, PianoMan and FingerBeat and some other progs, I've figured it can be nice to record sound from every single app to a sound editing program on my laptop, such as soundforge for example, to basically create my own one-man-band production for the fun of it, but the problem is that I couldn't resolve how to do it, I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I've tried to go through the sound settings as well as settings in several recording programs, mostly in SoundForge but I just couldn't find anything that would indicate a USB source, so I've tried them all in many variations but they all failed to deliver the result, I am able to record via my mic, or via any sound jack I have, I'm using IDT on my HP Pavilion DV5 if that info helps you.

Could somebody please help me out, I'll be glad to make a youtube video out of this later so that others can work it out cuz I'm sure a lot of people stumbled on that. *credits will of course be given to the original poster*


Thank you kindly.

Ipad 64GB WiFi, iPhone OS 3.1.2

    Please explain better what you want to do. I am confused by you mention of USB. It almost appears that you want to directly access the iPad via the sync cable to get to the sound files. I am not aware that that can be done.

    sorry I guess I didn't explain well enough

    there are ways to record audio from USB instead of a microphone, like if you have a USB microphone, or USB turntables or a USB guitar etc etc.. at my case, I have programs on my iPad, like iShred or beatbox which are basically virtual guitars, piano etc etc, I want to know how can I record the sound it plays directly via the USB cable which syncs my ipad to the PC, it's kind of odd to me that whenever I plug a USB guitar or a USB mixer, it has it's own drivers which work with the ASIO driver which allows me to record directly, but ipad has no such drivers it seems.

    The program(s) you are creating on must have an output to midi or aiff. Programs such as Finale, Sybilus and others are very specific as to the "flavors" they will accept. Both will accept standard midi files or XML. After you create a track you will need to save it as a file that you know your digital audio work station will accept. Logic will accept midi and audio (aiff) files. Remember, save your work in the format that your PC's music program will accept.
