I'm a student in the UK studying Music Technology and I want to make an iPad or iPhone app as supporting material for my University dissertation. The app I want to make would be a series of buttons to control a piece of music recording software. Basically, if you press record on the app the software starts recording, if you press stop it stops etc. I'm new to programming and although ive joined the Apple Development Programme and read through loads of documentation i'm still very confused as to where I would even start a project like this. If you think you can help me I would be very grateful to hear from you. I am not after someone to make this for me but rather teach me the different areas that I would need to cover.
