    Can you recommend me a good backing track player for iOS?

    I play bass in a trio which have no drummer and we are playing few shows every now and then with beats & drums via backing tracks. I made drum tracks with GarageBand live drummer and export them to iTunes, but in live situation the iOS Music app is not very handy. Some kind of setlist maker would be a great addon. Thanks in advance.

    Novation Launchpad, with the in app to load any of your own clips. (Through Dropbox for me)

    But - it does not do MIDI, so you can't use another app or pedal board to control it.

    And if your looking for a MIDI controller, this guy looks cool
    Livid Instruments
    Clamps on to any guitar or bass. Wireless, they have a free an app for IOS for controlling FXs. No free clip launcher, but anything that understands MIDI could use it to launch clips.

    Now after saying all that, for straight forward drums checkout iRealb. It lets you add in a piano also.

    Now that thing looks neat. Could it send the midi to an iPad, which the triggered the tracks?

    I'm looking for something that would let me trigger certain tracks during a song, and didn't really want to be tied to a pedal device, keyboard, or anything like that. This would be something I could hit without wherever I am on stage, without missing notes.

    Have anyone tried BackTrax app? Noticed that besides setlists you can add lyrics too.

    Livid has some video's on it, and how to hook it up.
    It's USB Class compliant, so the wireless dongle should plug into the camera adapter for an iPad

    Or you can use a USB midi host like
    Kenton MIDI USB Host
