Audiobus: Use your music apps together.
What is Audiobus? — Audiobus is an award-winning music app for iPhone and iPad which lets you use your other music apps together. Chain effects on your favourite synth, run the output of apps or Audio Units into an app like GarageBand or Loopy, or select a different audio interface output for each app. Route MIDI between apps — drive a synth from a MIDI sequencer, or add an arpeggiator to your MIDI keyboard — or sync with your external MIDI gear. And control your entire setup from a MIDI controller.Download on the App Store

Making and using SFZs and SF2s for Auria Pro
Thought this might deserve its own thread because there's a fair bit to it. I've just started having a go.
My first questions are ( @WaveMachineLabs )...
Is it correct that Auria will only play single instrument SF2s? (I.e. it will play an SF2 that's a flute, but not a single SF2 that is a whole bundled multi - instrument orchestra collection)?
Looking into commercially available SFZ beat 'kits' you can buy (that tend to span 16 pads) i'm finding that most run sequentially often from C0 (note 24 upwards) or sometimes from C1 (note 36 upwards). The slight problem with the current Lyra beat pad is that it only has 14 pads, starts at note 36 always, and it doesn't seem to run sequentially up the notes - it seems to use some Midi GM mapping probably. In the future, is it possible to consider being able to change this to sequential notes and choose the start note e.g. C0 or C1. Maybe also consider squeezing in 2 more pads. That would open Auria up to literally thousands of commercially available kits in SFZ format. At the moment it requires some rather fiddly editing of .sfz text files!
One day it would be good to improve on the pad player so that it has mute groups, made control of pitch (and even filter) 'per pad' etc... But I know - all good things come to those who wait!
EDIT: 4. (I knew there was one more) how many folders deep, please, can the samples go below the .SFZ file for Lyra to still find them. Is this unlimited or is it just one folder level?
Anyone else using 3rd party SFZs yet?
