RouteMidi is a MIDI utility and because of the number of messages I receive from GarageBand users, I think this App can be very useful to them.
RouteMidi is an AUv3 plugin.
It receives the MIDI signal from its host App (GarageBand,...), or from a connected keyboard (AUM, Audiobus,...) and sends it back where you want. Audiobus 3, Network Session (connected hardware), VIRTUAL MIDI, IAA,...
As a result, GarageBand users will always be able to use their Keyboards or any other Apps incompatible or not visible with it.
In the video, I show several examples of use.
(I don't have an external keyboard...)
RouteMidi in GarageBand controlling an Inter App.
RouteMidi in GarageBand controlling an App in Audiobus.
And RouteMii with AUM.
A killer tool! A Must Have tool!

The App Store description
RouteMIDI, in conjunction with a DAW such as Garageband, will allow you to create tracks that will use any of your external MIDI synthesizers for that track, as alternate to instruments etc. built into the DAW.
For each track that you select RouteMIDI as it's Audio Unit, you will be able to browse through whatever external devices are connected. Then, you may optionally direct the MIDI to any of the standard 16 Channels so that Multi-Timbral units are supported. Version 1.5 release notesVersion 1.5 addressed cosmetic issues in order to conform fully with App Store regulations. Version 1.3 Removed redundant code that may have been responsible for app crashing when used on a device connected to an ipv6-only Network. Made some changes that should serve to alleviate a potential processing bottleneck. The bottleneck may have been responsible for notes occasionally being stuck "on". Additionally, an "ALL NOTES OFF" button (3 exclamation marks on a Red Background) has been added to the panel to the right of the MIDI out destination Stepper control. In the event of any notes becoming stuck on, a single tap of this button will clear it.
