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.

Let’s see your studio setup (photos please!)

    I've had to downsize a lot since I started using this space for work, but I think it has actually allowed me to focus a whole lot more; I still love this corner of the house :)

    I want to buy your computer keyboard! Where?

  • From L-R: Roland Handsonic 10, iPad Pro 2017, iPad Air3, iPad Air1, Rolls Mini-Mix4, Motu M4 interface. The Novation Keystation49 Mk2 controls the Pro. If I had a larger mixer I'd add in my old iPhone 5 and my even older iPod that are snoozing, but hey I think I have enough touch surfaces at the moment.

    I use all this stuff a couple times per week creating live music for a dance class over Zoom. Not ideal, but better than not having the gig at all, and we're SO looking forward to in-person classes re-starting in January. The iMac is used for the Zoom calls, but I will also use it for mixing projects. Not shown: BopPad, Launchpad Mini Mk2, Launchkey Mini Mk3, Nanocontrol 2, etc...

    I'm looking for ideas for my small studio. I don't know how I could name this thing that I'm looking for, but I need something for my keyboard. I have a small table. My 49 keys keyboard is on the table, but I want something to elevate the keyboard so I can put things below the keyboard to save space. A kind of small table for my keyboard on a desk.

  • @Montreal_Music A “desk shelf”, maybe? A google search of that throws up that sort of thing.

  • I’ve seen them as shelf, desktop shelf, riser... but it’s always a difficult find with low success rate to find something fitting exactly.

    It's the Planck EZ keyboard, available here, but as I mentioned above, I can't really recommend it unless you really want to spend a lot of time customizing it and retraining your fingers, both because of the unusual shape and the use of modifiers to account for the missing keys, like numbers.

    When I'm out...

    Cake, Coffee & Cacophony...

    Identical to mine, except I tend to go for Costa's cherry jam Bakewell :)

    Bingo! Thank you

    I think you are right.

    Is it possible to buy this but to use on a table? With the right kind of grip. I don't know if you must have a keyboard stand to use this.

    @MonkeyDrummer very original concept, love it !

    Here's my setup...

    +++my favourite so far! Ipads with controllers and some hardware sequencers/samplers or groovebox is quite the same setup I am playing at the moment. I don‘t like the beatstep and the way the ipads are connected…: with the Iconnectivity MioXM and Iconnectivity Audio4c I can connect up to 5 midicontrollers and route them to 2 ipads (or mac/pc) with no limitations, one (or more) controller for different apps on the ipad and ableton or Octatrack. Split or separated bidirectional midi and even audio from OT to ipad or the other way…everything works. No latency no crackles.

    For that type of thing I would start my search from ‘laptop stand’ ‘DJ stand’ or similar... some of them are stackable, attachable... you’ll have to work through many findings unless you spot something exactly fitting... this is why these threads are useful... you can ask others if you see something specific you like... my solution is DIY most of the time...

  • First pic is from early 2019, I can‘t find or don’t have older fotos of my setups. (last pic is my actual studio/live setup):

    everything sold except Digitakt

    red cross means sold, green cross I still have, won‘t sell but don‘t use at the moment



    Tbh,at the moment I only use software (iOS) synths. (Drambo wavetable synth and pure acid mostly.)
    Midi and audio interface,the Octatrack, 220V/usb distribution and splitter,lights, Airport Express router, a small audiomixer,a bluetooth speaker and the NUC Hades Canyon PC are fixed in the rack, I use Splashtop if I need a display for the pc. all other equipment is easily replaceable with velcro straps.

    New addition of Behringer TD-3 this morning.

    Just starting to enjoy my hardware again after a lengthy iOS only break. Cubasis 3 copes well with sequencing external hardware and AUs and records the audio just fine. All is good.

    WAIT.. are you seriously TheDooo?! ;D

    Actually I had no idea who you were on about. I'm now up to speed 👍

    Microbrutes.

    Wanted to make my own polybrute before Arturia did it themselves. Got a couple minibrutes for the lower register as well 😋

    What did you use for an editor for your ti snow?
    I keep debating to pick one up

    Setup done 🙏🏼
    For now🤪

    I finally bought a drill for general purposes, and saved a good few quid and plastic by not buying an acrylic stand, instead making my own yesterday. Bit rough and ready, but fits perfectly :)



    Thanks for the inspiration with the shelves. I've been trying to keep things compact, but the gear spread keeps happening, so I'm going to be following this lead. Maybe today.

    Nice! It’s been great this week, just so much easier to use the gear when it’s in a good, solid position… good luck!

  • Nicely done, I'm a big fan of DIY projects in the studio to make it more ergonomic and cleaner.

    A Kawai K4! I still have mine, but haven't used it in a long while. It does make some sounds I've not found anywhere else. :)
