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.
A tiny slideshow on some aspects of Quantum midi sequencer.
Audiobus3 is hosting Aum sending its keyboard via MidiflowAdapter through Quantum to Animoog and bs-16i.
Open Audiobus, go to midi page, for output select Aum Port 1. For input, select Quantum, in the next row select Quantum for output, and MidiFlowAdapter for input.
In ab3 audio page, add Aum as output (in the row with Aum as input). Add an IAA app like Animoog next to Aum input (+).
Tap the Aum icon to open and the IAA audio channel is there already. Add an AU app like bs-16i.
Tap the Quantum icon to open, add a new rack, tap 'Midi input' and then the white circle and tap 'Set Note manual advance' and 'Record single notes &/or CC'.
Go to devices, tap 'Input' and on 'Audiobus Midi Input' device tap 'Active', set 'Ignore Transpose' to Off, and 'Midi Thru' to on. Go to setup, and set AB link to 'phase'.
Change back to Aum, where in the Menu, 'Midi Route', you connect the upper row outputs to the side row inputs: IAA port 1 to Animoog (virtual) and [email protected] 2, and keyboard to MF Adapter In 1.
Tap the Aum keyboard icon and play some notes. Have a look at the faders in Quantum, they should be recorded! Hit 'Play', done
You can select rec, play from the ab sidebar too - oh, and you can record chords in Quantum ...
If you like, you can load StepPolyarp as midi effect in ab3 (in the row with MFAdapter and Quantum) ...
Save the audiobus preset, and when finished, clear your session. MidiflowAdapter or IAA's could stay in zombie mode, so reboot before the next session, or load and swipe up to delete.
