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.
A very simple Task, but impossible to do with all this stuff??? Really??!???
Please dont get me wrong but i am frustrated. OK, let me please describe what simple task i would like to do.
I have Cubasis.
I have iM1.
I have nanokey Studio
I want this:
Play and record a Track in cubasis. The nanokey should send Midi into Cubasis and through this directly to channel 5 in the iM1 so i can hear just the patch that is on the iM1 ohn channel 5.
But because cubasis does not route an incoming midi signal from the standard channel (1) to the desired virtual midi channel, my task cannot be done.
So i bought the great and almighty Audiobus 3 and something called Midiflow Channels. And i hoped that i can workaround.
All i want to do is using Cubasis as a simple Midi Sequencer, like hiw i did over 30 years ago with an old Atari Computer and the M1 or other multitimbral sound modules.
Now we have 2018 and millions of Midi Apps around and Steinberg says since 3 years, "MIDI Thru re-channelizing is on our list of future updates.".
OK all i want now is someone who can tell that using Cubasis as a simple midi sequencer is simply NOT. POSSIBLE.
Please dont tell me about so called "workarounds". I also know that i can record a sequence with sounds in cubasis or change the patch on channel 1 in the iM1, then switch the output channel in cubasis and then select a different patch in iM1.
I just want to play the iM1 drums on channel 1, then switch to channel/track 2, play the iM1 Organ, then switch to channel/track 3, play the iM1 Bass and so on. If i have to re-select channels and patches everytime have an idea, the idea is killed instantly.
I appreciate every tipp that could lead to a Audiobus setting that solves this simple problem.
