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.

  • Well good news for U-44 owners, it's certainly possible to use the Toslink s/pdif inputs alongside the analog inputs into the ipad. But it's a bit of a hassle. The main downside being you have to use 48K which I haven't used much on ipad, so far favouring 44.1. Seems ok in AUM but Audiobus doesn't have an option to change so was running into issues with that.

    The analog to digital converter I bought said it supported 44.1 but seems not to, so not sure if another adapter does a better job of it.

    So if you use 48k and get the extra adapters, definitely an option here. I tried running a second ipad through hdmi audio and a volca FM into an analog to digital converter into the U-44.

    I read that as AudioShare and instantly thought whaaat... surely AudioShare would support higher than 44.1! :smile:

  • I'm_ almost _there to purchase the U-44 but I do have a question concern that I hope someone can speak to as I'm really a music tech novice and am confused by what little I've been able to find online about this. I effectively have 3 items I want to get into and out of my iPad for solo live performance.

    2 Guitars in one: a Fishman Piezo Powerbridge/Powerchip equipped Stratocaster with stereo output jack. I use a stereo Y cable which has TRS on one and and splits the magnetic pickups and the piezo into separate 1/4 TS plugs.

    Sure Beta 58A (condenser) Mic

    I want to route all three into my iPad for effects and vocal processing and looping (which I would control with footcontroller) and then have the processed and/or looped output from my iPad go into my Bose S1 PA.

    My concern stems from the specs of only 1 Hi-Z input (not sure if that really matters/needed for my guitar or not) and if you get the 2 extra input attachment it cuts other things off.

    **Is this the device that can handle all that? Can someone please explain how I would setup the I/Os on it for this?

    I would SO APPRECIATE a walk through or better - pictures - of how I could use this. Thanks in advance for any help. **

  • When using this with iPad does the USB offer access to the Midi? Can a keyboard connected to the Midi in find it's way to the iPad or is it only Audio over USB?
