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.
Is it possible to get LoopyHD to work this way?
I've been fighting Loopy today... So far it's winning.
Basically what I want to do is have loop START NOT quantized/counted-in but have a fixed length loop (i.e. count-out ON)...
- Imagine I have loop length in Loopy set to 4
- I hit my midi pedal that i have mapped to record when the master loop indicator (the thing in the orange "bar", not the track loop indicator) is at the 5 0'clock position.
- I want the loop to record to record for 4 bars and end again at the 5 o'clock position 4 bars later
So far I'm pretty sure this is not possible, unless someone can help me figure out how.
If I set record count-in to off, the fixed length thing does not seem to work, even if count-out is turned on...
This seems like a bug to me... If it's not, then why have the ability to set these independently of each other? If seems if it's NOT a bug, then turning off count-in recording should disable the ability to set count-out to on/off since it doesn't seem to make any difference. Unless I'm doing something wrong...?
The use case is when I'm playing into loopy with a lot of delay/reverb FX, the "natural" start of a loop/groove is almost never at the 12 o'clock "top" of loopy's clock... But I know that the loop/groove will repeat every 4 bars for example...
Right now, if I set count in/out to on, it will always wait until it's at top 12 o'clock position before it starts recording...
