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.
OT Apple will make its own chips on Macs (not Intel based)
I can think some scenarios for that move
- integration with iOS
- security flaws in Intel chips
- Small improvement from gen to gen
- Hackintosh become popular (even with AMD chips)
- More power efficiency
In my personal opinion , it’s a difficult decision since there will be a compatibility transition (like the days with IBM chips on ppc macs) , it will also affect current sales since in few years the hardware will not be able running future OSX versions, plus not all software developers will make the transition.
But then Apple can have total control of the hardware ($$$$$$$), and maybe will justify the *3 pricing on their macs compared to windows PC&Laptops that currently have same specs .
