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!)

    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. :)

    I got that and the flight case for £60 a few months ago. I use it with MidiQuest's iOS app which opens up the engine in a much more user friendly way. The app cost almost as much as the synth did but it's well worth it. The drum kit on it is making a comeback with the kids, apparently.

  • Hey @ashh - love the setup.
    I assume the skin for the Neutron came from Heinakroon? Is that paper or vinyl? What is that one called?

    Hey there. It is vehicle-grade vinyl, apparently. Really easy to put on and very precisely cut. It's called Colours 2.0 and is the Nocturnal edition which has a black background rather than white. I got the normal one but there's also a version that takes account of anyone who has swapped the large LFO knob onto their VCF and vice versa but I'm not exactly sure how that affects the skin other than it may have longer marks where the dial goes.

    I have a K3 here, with almost the same flight case, funny enough.

    Thanks so much.

    What's the difference between the 2, do you know?

    Not the flight cases. :D

    The K3 is a hybrid synth with digital oscillators matched with analog filters, where I believe the K4’s all digital. Slightly more depth in low pads to my ear. But the biggest difference is that no one’s been either able to, or been bothered to, make a patch editor for the K3, and it’s not much fun to use it’s silly membrane buttons.

    You're aware that MidiQuest does one for the K3?

  • hows the apc working out for you?
    i keep debating to pick one up, but the last thing i need is another controller to script.

    I like it a lot, but it's not for everyone. The mappings are fixed (unless you do a ton of sysex after it turns on, which I don't) so you have to work with it. But the encoders are really nice, the rubberized buttons are usable and its got a lot of things to map to. And the right-side encoders have 8 different pages you can switch between which is great. Honestly I've grown to like it having a fixed mapping, because that means all the projects I build will always work with the APC.

    I have a (slightly klugey) project working where drambo sends all the knob values on project load, so I can really use it live (this was a pain to get working). That makes it a keeper for me. Even when the BCR 32 comes out I'm pretty sure I'll keep using it.

    I must have missed that one (or I was only searching cheap options). Might check it out, thanks!

    I'm looking for a stand for my iPad and I'm not sure which to buy. Do you have a link to see the support of the iPad on the right on the picture? Looks like a music desk but for iPad.

    Sure! That one is this AboveTek stand. It's honestly pretty wobbly but convenient to move around. Their clamp stand is more stable but still somewhat wobbly for iOS music work. I really like their stands overall but for my middle iPad I just switched over to using this Akros mount on a little wooden stand and its way more stable.

    I gave up.

    Some nice classic Korg in that pic! 🔱 λ

  • Always post without completing job but quite sure, it will be the current sticker format. Painted sticky labels gold ( acrylic ) Seems more orange because its on black but I think black makes metalics, even more metalic. Certainly catches your eye. Not usually keen on orange and red in the same frame ( the volca cable ) but happy with stickers.

  • Almost Led.

  • Soma Lyra.

  • And the other encoder mapping. The above includes tfx echo. Time. Feedback. High and low filters. Mapped the on/off button elsewgere but found it to be a click. So will map ( mix ) elsewhere.

    How would you map this page. Keep mononoke mirror version or not.

  • Posted setup before. I think. Just remapped ( no tests but should be calibrated ) Made a custom nanokontrol. With stickers for volumes. Might color with watercolor as il be using same synths mainly. Leave a white for the unknown synth. With the swam and mononoke setup. Other side might be estoric with ripplemaker. Quanta instead of estoric , with a synth like poison instead of swam. Received a phone mount. So can record myself and music.

  • Didnt really need an ipad mini. Just for ripplemaker. Actually got a volca modular but its cool enough.

    After a fair while away from desktop and Ableton Live, I finally got a chance to bring in all the various controllers I’ve been collecting with iOS in mind (and an iPad of course). I realise now that iOS music (and this forum) has made me 10 times better, both musically and technically, I finally know how everything works (almost) :)
