See VocaLive (with iRig MIC for vocal input) and AmpliTube (with iRig HD as input for guitar and bass) with great apps like Audiobus (of course) and GarageBand in this great video. See how easy it is to connect VocaLive with other apps that are compatible with Audiobus.
Audiobus (from Audiobus Pty Ltd) allows the processing and output of audio apps to be used in real time with other apps, thus “connecting” them much like audio cables connect pieces of gear. Singers can now use VocaLive to add stunning vocal effects to their recordings in other apps like AmpliTube or GarageBand, or add instrumentation from other apps to their recordings in VocaLive.
VocaLive for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and AmpliTube for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch are now Audiobus compatible. Audiobus is a groundbreaking new app (developed by A Tasty Pixel in cooperation with Audanika) that allows users to connect the audio of multiple apps, opening up countless new sonic possibilities. For example Audiobus lets users send audio out of one app, filter it through the next one in the chain, and receive it in the third. Vocals can be run through a filter or multifx; or a synth could be looped by a looper and its output sent to a recorder; or an electric piano could be run through a guitar multi-FX app and then into a sampler — all in real time.

How to use SampleWiz to create real-time sampling effects for the Radiohead song “Everything In Its Right Place”
The Washington & Lee University Electronic Music Ensemble (EME) performed the Radiohead song “Everything In Its Right Place” in their Fall ’12 concert. This video describes how they utilized an iPad app called SampleWiz to mimic the real-time sampling effects used by Radiohead in this song. EME members Matt Kinderman ’16 and Rodes Brown ’13 explain and demonstrate these techniques.
Under the direction of Graham Spice, the EME capitalizes on the strengths of its individual members. This ensemble calls upon its performers to utilize their instrumental or vocal talents in new ways incorporating electronic music. In addition, those students who specialize in composition, engineering, and production are given the opportunity to showcase their skills in the creation and performance of this contemporary music. A strong visual element is also included in their concerts provided by computer-generated video projections.
Here are the hottest vocal samples for your tracks, Ableton Live Ready. Enjoy the Swag YOLO!

Demotrack of the breakaway vocalizer, all sounds from the vocalizer, some reverb and delay
The vocalizer has a pitch to midi converter build inside
It contains 74 sounds wich can be expanded by extra cartridges (mine has the new age cartridge)
The soundchip inside is the same as the Ensoniq ESQ-1 synthesizer.
This machine can be controlled by midi but is also has an external input.
In this demo i fed all kinds of things into the input like a radio, a mic, a drumcomputer and multitracked it.
The results can be somewhat unpredictable wich is good for experimental music.
