YouTuber AudioLabs did a track from scratch, using Modstep to sequence external hardware. It's a little slow, since it is a track being developed from nothing, but it is interesting to see the process of controlling so many bits of kit!
Modstep Live Jam - Starting a track from scratch using an ipad running modstep midi sequencer to sync and sequence a bunch of hardware:
- modstep (ipad midi sequencer)
- steinberg ur22 mk2 (ipad midi out)
- roland TR8 (drums)
- roland JP8000 (pad)
- novation bass station 2 (bass, sidechained by the TR8)
- novation k-station (arp)
- moog sub 37 (lead)
The first 3 min are all about programming the TR8 but after that it's all synth goodness ;)

Korg has had some subtle hints that we'd be seeing an iPhone version of Gadget. Most recently with the announcement of the Korg nanoSTUDIO controllers, they included a picture of Gadget on an iPhone.
YouTuber Kuba Szczygielski points out a great eBay find! For less than $7 you can pick up a powered USB hub with Lightning connection! Expect a lengthy shipping time though, because that's coming straight from China.
You don't need expensive Apple USB to Lightning Camera Adapter - you can get this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Card-Reader-Adapter-3-USB-Hub-Camera-Connection-Combo-Kit-for-iPad-Mini-4-5-Air-/251551002548
I've got mine for $8,99, but as you can see you can get it even cheaper.
