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.

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

  • Nice update.. Just got this synth recently and I can see why it gets such high praise!
    I haven't spent much time with it yet but I couldn't find the mix between layers in the mod destinations. Would love to see this feature in the future if it's not already possible?

  • You can do it using AMP destination (positive and negative moudlation). I know its cumbersome and plan to add mod target for this.

  • Thanks for the tip, I will try it out later. Glad to hear you may add this since it would be great to have it available as a destination in the mod matrix...

  • Where are the new drive types? Are they not in the iPhone version?

    Make sure you updated the app. They are on FILTER/DRIVE panel on the right side. You should see 3 buttons: soft, asym and fold

  • @giku_beepstreet the new modulation sounds amazing. Thank you for adding it.

    Yeah I thought those were there before. I've used them. This update says 8 different types. I mean there is a blank space where more could go but that's only 3 on that page

    Yes 3 on/off buttons = 8 types :) It was selection leds before (one of 3 options)

    Oh I see, didn't know you could turn on more than one at a time. Thanks

    v1.4 is available on the AppStore

    • Redesigned Drive module. Added high-quality wavefolders. 8 distortion types are available now.
    • Precise knobs control (left/right movement)
    • Drive parameter is smoothed now
    • Fixed issues with Cubasis 2.3 (newest update)

    Upcoming update:

    • MPE
    • Microtuning
    • ? :)

    btw. looking for MPE preset designers

    MPE, Microtuning.....nice. I have a Seaboard Rise which will be happy about this :)

  • @giku_beepstreet The new fold option for drive in Zeeon 1.4 is very nice indeed!

    I can't seem to find the 'drive knob' as part of the modulation destinations?!
    (Call me crazy but the 'drive' parameter is like just made to me controlled by an envelope).

    Look a few posts above... its explained + video demo (you modulate osc mix = amount of signal that goes to Drive = drive itself :) )

    I modulated mixer input with an lfo and juicy fart sounds resulted. ''Twas very satisfying. Thank you.

    @Samu don’t worry, it’s not so obvious, I had to ask how this works too.

  • I got several cool preset using ‚drive mod via osc mix‘ . The filter also plays a big role in the behavior of the overtones. And one can mod osc1 and osc2 mix B)

    Very good that the LFOs can be used in one-shot mode, otherwise i would have asked for more env generators.

    Ha, that won‘t happen since bluetooth sucks and i won‘t buy into a CCK or so. Everytime i try it with my phone it disconnect after a few minutes. It’s fine when i just use velocity but where is the fun? :) But if the mac version comes one day Zeeon will be in my default set-up forever :)
    MPE seems also still a niche but i hope it grows more.

    Spent the whole day with ipad connected to sb via bt, no issues so far. No latency, works like a charm.

    I also have the same on my macbook pro indeed. I mean when i play very fast and use all the dimensions. It works mostly good if i use the Seaboard just as normal midi keyboard and just use velocity. Maybe it´s the Seaboard or my "old" hardware. But still bluetooth is not fast enough for percussive sounds. So i gave up for now to connect it to my iPhone.

  • @giku_beepstreet Didn’t the early beta iterations of Zeeon have a randomize function? Is that still on the roadmap?

    That would make me insanely delirious... :smile:

  • With the mod matrix being what it is, it would seem that a randomizer for this synth would be a bitch to program and keep tame. I understand the appeal of a sometimes-magical random button, but I see Zeeon as a very inviting ‘learn to do it yourself’ synth.

    But I don't want tame :wink:

    Haha understood, but if the parameters were’t tamed quite a bit, I think you’d always end up with pure chaos (and rarely in a good way). You can achieve untame just by fiddling knobs even if you don’t know what you’re doing.

  • I´m against a randomizer but different randomize algos and/or S&H as source would be great.
    I would like before to see a few other things like seeing the synced values of the LFO when i set them to BPM instead of the Hz value. I also wonder if i miss dotted and tripled beats there?
    And of course i want that Dagger Brute 12 filter :)

    Forget about randomized matrixes (what’s the plural of matrix?).
    It just creates completely unusable garbage.
    And I am pretty open minded about what is musical useful or interesting.

    I think iVCS3 randomization leaves the matrix pins where they are so that makes sense. I would still love to see a random sound generator in such a great synth. I use the random on other synths continuously with very pleasing results.

  • Oh my, a Seaboard would be a dream to design the next round of sounds...mpe.. :) well...to expensive...but this is a nice treat you are working up there.

  • edited December 2017

    @o_imseng your presets are always welcome, regardless of MPE :) waiting for your new stuff!

  • Picking up work on the next bank this week. Had to pause and clean my head for a while and catch up with some Marvel movies :smile:

  • @giku_beepstreet thanks for the work on MPE. Zeeon and my Linnstrument are gonna be smokin hot!
