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.
Large collection of Soundfonts I selected the internet and others who converted the samples to Kontakt. Enjoy!!
I'll 2nd that
Hmm, too many dodgy DOWNLOAD buttons on that page! Very confusing...
You need to open an account to download
https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/ offering 40% off with coupon code 6YEARS at check out. If anyone has experience using their soundfonts with BS-16i, I'd love to hear your opinions.
@Mythmongrel - you can find out for yourself. DSF Example Downloads the top two links are example soundfont downloads free from Digital Sound Factory
https://www.digitalsoundfactory.com/products/1500-instruments looks like an awful lot of sounds for 15 smackers. Someone do it.
I did the example SoundFonts....first one is 82mb unzipped and second is 18mb unzipped
$17.97 with 6YEARS coupon code and its 450 mb
It's so tempting seeing that huge list of instruments...darn you Will
I've got several Digital Sound Factory packages. They are pretty good. :-)
Jarrett, I just got around to downloading these, but the guitarded and orchestrated one seems to be missing. Is there any chance you could reupload? Thanks!
Jarrett, i finally got around to downloading these and dropbox is saying the Guitarded & Orchestrated file is missing. any chance you might be able to reupload? either way thanks for these! also does anyone know of a freeware app for osx that's like the viena off hand? i have an old xp netbook, but god that thing is slow.
@protomike - ill try to later, I must've need space in Dropbox and erased them, sorry about that! Will let you know when done
I have them here, already unzipped.
Plus a Chamberlin soundfont I cobbled together.
You da man! Thanks I've def been short for time lately so who knows when I'd gotten to it
Thanks @PaulB I recently did a factory reset on my IPad and didn't back those up. Btw my iPad is running 50% better and I recovered a lot of space. I guess after 2 years it was due.
@mgmg4871 - I desperately need to do one also....it builds up quick
Thanks for sharing these files! Unfortunately something went wrong with the brass & strings one and now BS16i crashes right away. I hope I can get it to work without reinstalling. Any other recommendations besides rebooting?
Okay, I removed the brass & strings file with iFile now. At least bismark doesn't crash upon launch now.
Yea sometimes BS-16i struggles with larger files. I also had an issue where I had a soundfont loaded into a slot and had deleted the soundfont using iFunbox then BS16i would crash because it couldn't find the file. It especially struggles loading two large soundfont so I try to stick to one large file at a time
Yes, it seems to work better with just one of the sf loaded. It may also be related to the memory of the device. I'm on an iPad mini here, so probably an iPad 3 or 4 would be struggling less? I'll see how things are on the iPhone 5 later.
Man, I'll be craving for the new mini when it comes out. And iPad 5...
Here is a video tutorial...this has been posted in the relevant thread..thanks to everyone to helped me with this.
Can't get it to load lately either. Not sure what I left in there but it's pretty grumpy about it.
@syrupcore - if you can't clear out the slots via the clear button you can try using iFunbox to delete the files. BS-16i does struggle with larger files and especially If you have more than one
Yeah, I need to iFunbox it I think. I see the cute dog and then.... home screen.
