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.
Loopy bindings with different interfaces
I’ve always thought of myself as fairly intelligent but this has got me stumped. All I want to do is control loopy from an FCB1010 which I have borrowed from a student of mine. I have looked at all the available Hardware loopers but at best they only allow you to record just three tracks in serial mode. Therefore I have decided to go with loopyand to also have a try with ableton as well.....
I have three different interfaces and have managed to create loopy bindings using just one of them, an alesis io dock 1. Trouble is, I can only use it with my iPad 2 and its audio ins and outs are faulty.
I hoped that the bindings would be saved to the FCB1010 but it seems like they are only to saved to loopy on my iPad 2?? I got the FCB app onto my PC and tried a system exclusive dump from the FCB to the app but there seems to be nothing stored in the FCB?? I have neither the time nor the brainpower to program the FCB 1010 using the PC app and would rather program my bindings using loopy.
So the big question is.....are the bindings only stored on Loopy HD and not actually stored on the FCB 1010? Please could somebody clarify this for me ? Yes I have the manual but it will not explain how to use it with loopy and all my interfaces.
What I want to do is use the same bindings with loopy but on my iPad Air 1...using either my Behringer XR18 or my focusrite scarlet 18i20 for now. Loopy sees both interfaces but will not let me add bindings for them? After doing a bit of research I concluded that I need an app called midi Bridge on my iPad but I don’t want to spend any more money on apps!!!!
However, I would like a much more portable 4 input interface and I would like to try mapping the FCB to ableton on a MacBook Pro as well.......if I buy an iconnectivity audio 4+ ......will it all just work? Will loopy see the iconnect and allow me to reprogram the bindings onto my iPad Air?
I then want to find a way to store the settings on the FCB so that my student can then use the bindings with loopy on his iPad Pro!!!!
I’m not asking for a lot really......am I?
