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.
Elastic Drums: MIDI, same controller etc
I'm trying to MIDI map a scene page of my NanoKONTROL Studio to ElasticDrums.
To make life easier i've change the NanoKONTROL ccs to reflect the ccs in the manual on the knobs and buttons I want to use. But I am confused that they make no difference, they still need to be MIDI learnt.
OK fine, only a bit of extra stuff to do but then I am baffled by the Same Controller for all instruments where the MIDI mapping of instrument select is hidden, so how does one MIDI learn to it? Am I right in thinking that the strip of buttons on the right of the Instr screen are the select buttons and that they are not the same as the Trigger buttons?
Finally It seems especially tricky to map the XY controls to an XY controller! This is not just an issue for Elastic Drums but i wondered if anyone has a trick for this that isn't mapping to some other things then changing those values on the XY controller to those values.
Also I don't know if this is by design but it seems I can only talk to Elastic Drums with the NanoKONTROL Studio when its connected through AUM (haven't tried with AB3 or Modstep but I imagine it would work similarly) and not as a standalone, this despite ED recognising the NanoKONTROL Studio in the MIDI options.
Excellent app, no real complaints, so please don't think I'm criticising. I'm just confused as to what is going on with some of these things. I will get more out of Elastic Drums when I have it properly intergrated into my Nano Studio work flow.
