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

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

Favorite iPad "substitute" for Omnisphere-ish (worship/ambient) pad creation?

I'd love to know your thoughts. Thanks!

  • I think Possibly Synthmaster might have some lush pads. I haven't gone through that section in depth yet

  • +1 Mitosynth

  • +3 Mitosynth

  • The spectrasonic omnisphere vst you mean ? If that s the question i would say TF7 (expanded algorithmes) ,poseidon, magellan (with IAP expansions) but hard to compared with a 60 gb vst synth ...

  • Thor is amazing. If you're interested I've made a few dozen pads: a shimmer, airy, dark, moving, bright etc. I run them through AUM and use a reverb and crystalline with a LPF.
    I also have mitosynth. If anyone has more pad presets I'd love more!

  • Mitosynth

  • Would be great to try out your pads patches.... Thnks!

  • Alchemy is nice!

  • Is Alchemy still in the App Store? I thought it had been pulled?

  • Would of course previously have said Alchemy, but now Synthmaster and / or Mitosynth and Nave as has been said by others. Would also include Addictive, TERA and Cube Synth for specific sounds too.

    There's lots of pad making possible among iOS synths, above listed and I'd add Animoog, Crystal, and per @MusicInclusive any Virsyn, given the MSEGs contained in all (Crystal is likewise endowed)

    Mitosynth is the one that can most closely do what (the newest) Omni does, in that one can load user WAV as fodder for pads and textures (multiple samples per patch, with a quantum kind of MSEG possible using the "gridcøre" functionality)...search these threads for magnificent pads made by our members @Cinebient, @Sinapsya for the great Mitosynth. The same devs older Grainsynth expands on the granular synthesis that the latest Omni can do, and that Mitosynth touches on, with deep granular control using up to 2 user WAVs at once. Have fun, play loud.

  • Okay here's 14 pads patches for thor. Let me know what you guys think!

  • Addictive makes weird ambiance and is easy to use!

  • @ion677 I was wondering, do you have sound samples of the pads you posted in dropbox? I haven't purchased Thor yet but my only use for a synth would be for soft pads to use at church and I would love to listen before I buy. Your presets might be just what I'm looking for.

  • Another synth that I just downloaded is ns1. You can run multiple instances of it to get a very layered sound.

    Long time ago I used to use Crystal a lot on the PC. Not only was it free, but perfect for pads. I was happily surprised to find that it's made its way to iOS as Crystal Synth XT.

    It was great on the PC. Gonna check it out on iOS for old time's sake this weekend I think. $4.99.

    +1 I think you're going to be pleased, the GUI is opened up nicely on iPad, you can craft patches in iPad and ship to iPhone version, and it's a pad monster like you remember. CPU intensive on older devices but well worth it

  • Hi! I know this thread is a few years old but Worship Pads Pro is a killer pads app for soft atmospheric pads!
