B-Step from iPad to Mac using MIDI Over Bluetooth

So I have managed to get B-Step working wirelessly via Bluetooth from an iPad to a recent MacBook Pro, controlling VSTs in Ableton.

Wanted to start a thread for discussion of this setup, as it is very useful.

The major problem I had with this setup is that it works fine when Ableton is not recording, but as soon as you hit record the MIDI gets completely mangled. Is this a known issue?

Also, would like to resolve the question of how sync works over Bluetooth. Is it possible to have Ableton start and stop the B-Step for recording purposes?
