    I've got an iPhone 6, and I'd like to use Logic and Ableton on my Macbook when i'm outdoor. Can I use my iPhone as midi controller for my DAWs? I mean an App to get a kind of midi "piano"/Drumpad to work with my iPhone on the Macbook? Thanks!

    Lemur is my personal favorite
    TouchOSC is cheap and effective

    There's a host of others. Search MIDI in the AppStore.

    Get a dedicated MIDI interface or the iPhone Camera Connection kit to use if you don't want to go wireless. Keep in mind that you can setup an ad-hoc (wireless) network without internet but using something like this unplugged from power will drain battery faster.

    Yes. They work as general MIDI controllers so just set them up as a regular MIDI device in Logic.

    I forgot to add LK. It's made for Ableton but you can switch it to a general MIDI mode to control anything.
    Another one specifically for Ableton is Touchable MINI. Very feature rich with dedicated modules for all the stock Live Instruments and Effects. You can even browse and load your Sounds, Clips, Instruments/FX and Plugins right from the device.

    Have fun with it, brother. There's nothing like going all Minority Report in your DAW.
