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.

  • I just dont make much music so I just expect everything to work, when I do.

  • Do IAP banks contain new samples?

    No, they contain patterns and sound patches, no samples.

    No, they contain patterns and sound patches, no samples.

    by patches do you mean presets? The drums for example in the IAP bank are basically stock PCM samples with adjusted pitch, envelopes, etc. did I understand correctly?

    Thanks, this is interesting.

  • @jimpavloff thank you so much for committing to relative midi for GR-16; I hope my beat step pro can finally get some use as a controller...I firmly believe all iOS audio apps and hosts should support it, and this will go a ways towards normalizing it on a major iOS app! Thank you, Jim. Any thoughts on the same for Pure Acid?

    If I manage relative midi knobs mode to work correctly, I will implement it for Pure Acid also.

  • Hi Jim. Thanks a lot for the ability to fully assign controls to external controllers in a recent update but there is a problem. I can't assign parameter to shift key. When saving with the "write" button, the "shift + write" menu appears instead, and as a result, midi learn is canceled. Tried different parameters for the button on the controller, shift fails to assign. Sometimes shift + write starts to work when I save other parameters and only restarting the application helps.

    Did you update it to 1.7.8 ?

  • An update with continuous controller support is out already! I can't test because I don't have such a controller, but ... wow. @jimpavloff is amazing!

    Is anyone here with a controller can test? I don't have a relative midi controller too, so I was emulating one while implementing support for it. So there can be still some bugs...

  • edited August 9

    @jimpavloff I do, is this the public release or a beta?

    Edit: nevermind, I saw the update now, I’ll give it go later

    Thanks a lot! I will test them and get back to you 👍🏼

    EDIT: OK, I got it to work. See my next post....

    -----Original message follows----------

    @jimpavloff Thank you very much for your recent updates to enhance MIDI Learn (controlling the value knob, and other buttons in GR)! I was just about to request such features, and all of sudden you added them.

    I found some trouble with using relative encoder mode on my Beatstep, however. The Beatstep has 17 encoders, no pots.

    I mapped the Beatstep's big encoder knob as the data value knob in GR. It works great.

    The thing that isn't working is, I'd like to use the Beatstep's other 16 knobs to work in relative mode to control the knobs in GR. But no matter what relative encoder mode I put the Beatstep knobs in, I can't get GR to understand how to use a relative encoder to move a knob. It works fine when I tell the Beatstep to act like a pot, but that is because the Beatstep outputs absolute numbers between 0 and 127. GR doesn't know it is an encoder. But that loses the benefit of having an encoder - that it can turn a 0-127 position knob relatively.

    The Beatstep has 3 relative modes, Relative #1, #2, and #3 when using a knob as a continuous encoder. I used Relative #1 for the big knob and it worked fine in GR. But all 3 Relative modes on the Beatstep failed to work in GR for controlling the other knobs. This happened regardless of the Relative MIDI mode in GR. Depending on the mode chosen in the Arturia Software, the knob in GR would either move a little but kept jumping back to the original position, or go to the max or min value.

    I can do more testing, or provide better info later using MIDISpy. But wanted to report this behavior to see what you want to know.

  • OK, I got it to work. I needed to make sure I get "[ofs]" when I do a MIDI Learn with a relative (encoder) knob. It will seem like GR16 learned the knob, but now I see if I don't get "[ofs]" in the display showing what MIDI value it learned, it means GR16 didn't auto detect it as a relative knob.

    I also had to watch how I turned the knob during learning. Too fast or too slow and it didn't work. Once I realized all this, I was able to get it configured very quickly. Thanks to @rs2000 for setting me straight on this.

  • @MLohmeyer You're welcome.
    I'm in touch with @jimpavloff about this, we know it's not a perfect solution (yet).
    But I'm really happy that he took care of it at all.
    Not many iOS apps support hardware controllers with incremental encoders, the only other ones I remember are Arturia Spark and Drambo.
