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.
@cian it has now.
Huzzah. Must be Friday!
Xequence is an impressive App, that constantly get's better.
Thanks for this, @SevenSystems
And thanks a bunch for those tutorial, that really help to get in, @gmslayton
@tja trying my best -- I even fixed your contrast problem today 😉 (will be in the Audiobus update)
"There is something in the flow of this app that is counter intuitive for my brain in particular."
I agree with this sentiment from @RUST( i )K
I'm not sure if I should just chock it up to "I just don't get it" and move along or forge ahead and keep trying. Time is expensive ....
That said, I appreciate you taking the time to educate us @gmslayton !
@kinkujin @RUST( i )K A mater of taste obviously, as, to me, Xequence is just, by far, the most easiest and cleanest way to use rock solid midi standard connecting this chaotic world of unfinished unstable "all in one" apps available...
Great idea Rodolfo! About mapping midi to transport.
@gmslayton Awesome series! Saw them a while back to get an idea about Xequence and bought it instantly after watching it. Definitely my favorite sequencing app (I hate everything else and always stayed away from sequencing on pc or iOS). So easy and precise... it’s just perfection. It’s closer to being a daw than some apps that claim to be DAWs lol. All my projects are neatly organized in folders too.
i just asked this in another thread but maybe it’s best to ask here 😎
so how do you just delete random notes?? i can’t seem to double tap them or find a way to select just one or isolated notes...what am i doing wrong..
also, i have metronome set to always on count in, but it never plays on count it..is it cuz link is enabled!!??
here’sa image of the notes i wanna delete..seems like i have to delete all or none with my current understanding
Is the Pen tool active?
Should be flashing white. Select this and you can then edit away.
You can also long press and drag to 'box select' notes.
i figured out the metronome i think.. i guess the visual number count in is counting in to the count it? like there’sa blank space pre sequence
this is what im getting..
@reasOne are you in the iOS Music Production Discord? It may be a bug but I have a few ideas that might be easier to help with real time chat
yo! yes i am on the discord with the same name
shout out to @TheAudioDabbler for giving me the code to delete notes!! now i am in the xeq1 club! hahah
In the video it looks like the Grid is „crossed out“ - might be moiree effect but have never seen this and I do everything with X2.
i think it looks like that in x1 when you have it set to loop a particular section, which is the part that’s shown, maybe is different in x2
If anyone else is interested in how to delete such small notes: Hit SELECT, drag a frame around the note(s) to delete and hit the X (DELETE) button.
Or zoom in and then delete.
Wonderful work. Kudos to you, @TheAudioDabbler .
No disrespect to Mister Dabbler, but is the series still largely on point despite the newer version etc?
no disrespect taken MR. @JohnnyGoodyear I would say at the core, X1 and X2 are similar enough with the editing and things that these should still be accurate. I do need to revisit and add in X2 specific stuff.
I do cover new features in my Dawless Daw video.
Ah, I never thought about that. I know X2 pretty well already so didn't watch this in depth. It seemed good and was presented well and I was largely commenting on that. Good point, though, sir.
well nothing mind blowing here but this is my first loop with x1 to actually feel like i know a bit about what i’m doing 🤣😎 had to cut the bass for the screen cap as it was causing insane distortion so is a bit empty sounding rn...
question. does x2 come with unlimited tracks from the start or is it an iap?
@reasOne Xequence 2 comes with all features out of the box, there are currently no IAPs. That includes unlimited tracks.
There's various ways to delete multiple notes:
Also, the "Visual count-in" (Play button counting down and flashing) has nothing to do with the metronome or recording count-in -- it is a separate Ableton Link count-in to the next bar (yeah, that's what you get when so many different features fight against each other )
haha ya i think it finally hit me that the count in was a link thing then my timing got much better 🤣😎🤣😎
well sir this is a no brainer decision then to upgrade to x2. consider it done!
i read here somewhere that people are having good luck with x2 and fractal bits so that is awesome as it’s quickly become my percussion go to.
feels good to finally start to understand this beast i was just blanking out on a couple things at first but now the fun is learn the next batch of “ things x_q_c_e can do!
x_q_c_e let me know if there's any other questions that come up. And thanks for the purchase!
That's what I meant by...
