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!)

  • That Polyend is smaller than I realized, in a good way.

    Maybe the final setup. Maybe jamm pro will be good with both ipads. Glad the book I made, for other stands thats under launchpad. Is temp stable for launchpad. Instead of buying/remaking the wooden stand.

    I see you've got both iPads up and running now.
    Looking good.

    Cheers Grav. Going to see what 8 tracks will be like with jamm pro. It maybe seems more with all the gate effects. Might be ok.

  • @sigma79 : How do you find the Faderfoxes?

    No its lame. Theres no start stop link. Who decides to leave off start stop link. From a dj style app of all apps.

    Good. Ec4 is easy to program via controller. Encoders can be quite fast with acceleration mode ( for filters ) not as fast as a normal knob. Dont need the problematic, push function to send any pc or cc. So they are set to switch group via push ( next synth etc ) If I use/keep mappings of synths with loads of cc ( thermos etc ) Then its worth it. If I dont map/or just use screen/or use a host that makes it only worth mapping a few parameters as you go. Then not sure. Quite good with snakebud though but I only mapped note. It would be about 4 encoders worth of mapping 4 x 16?

    I think controller wise and although, even the launchpad isnt mapped. A launchpad and encoder controller is all you need. Mpe keyboard would be a bonus.

    I did buy the faderfox pc12 overlay from Mathias. Didnt need writing with a Euclidean setup as each row were the same. Now if I use as an effects controller. Should be ok. Even though I could just use ec4.

    I live in a trash can

  • A little more tweaking of the setup today. I think this feels right. Everything feels like it’s in its right place:

    For now 🫠

    Havent mapped yet.

    Hopefully I can reverse the mapping 127-0 etc. As I think spacefields parameters are reversed.

    No point mapping. Dev has left out all the depth, rate, rand, x 10.

    Why?

    Also forgot about the reverb section to be mapped. It can either be left or redo controller.

  • I really downsized when we moved from our house to an apartment. Because of space and health issues I nearly decided to de-emphasize music making altogether, but eventually resolved to screw that nonsense and actually up my game for as long as I’m able. As a result, I’ve gradually started filling up all the available space in my bedroom nook, combining my iPad(s) with all my oldest gear to construct a mobile/4-track setup. (The pedalboard is titled “Dog’s breakfast”: strangely despite playing for over 40 years I’ve never had one, so it’s a synthesis of stuff that was in storage and new purchases all under $30. It actually sounds quite good :smile: ) I think I’m more productive with this setup then with my Mac and thousands of dollars of plugins… fewer choices is better for me.


  • yes nice studio pictures. I like studio gear and sound processing stuff better than a pile of midi controllers. And I like the human factor, and a bit of chaos too.

    :) I see what you did there

  • I am chronically ill that’s why I lie in bed pretty often and my iPad and midikeyboard are all I need /can use from bed so no real Studio

    I’ve been the same situation: whatever works to keep you creating music is absolutely a studio!
