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.
Octatrack or MPC Live as a sampler to fill with iOS food?
It's in the title. In a month or two I'm going to get a hardware sampler, but I'm in two minds as to which one. The main attraction with the MPC Live is latency-free finger drumming - love it, got a Nord Drum 2 and Pad and it's my favourite piece of gear - and the main hook with the Octatrack is a personal proclivity for tweaking, sound design and loop mangling.
Thoughts on matching either of these pieces with an iOS setup?
Anyone with experience with either of these machines, how do you use them?
