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!)

    Love it. What’s your take on Uno? Also, is that IK speaker good enough for outdoors, low end, stereo mixes? Sorry for the inquisition but they are both products I had my eye on and pretty accessible in my area sexond hand.

    The Uno Pro brings that ”analog character” to the mix and is well worth a look if you are in the market for analog. I bought mine refurbished and it is a lot of bang for the buck. Necessary nowadays with quality synth apps? NO. Fun and knowing you are getting analog sounding stuff? YES.

    As for the iLoud it is surprisingly good for listening when recording with ok but not great bass response. For sure better than regular small computer speakers, but not en par with monitors like the IK iLoud Micros or better. I got it because I can run it mobile using its battery. I would never mix on it, I use headphones for that.

    Thanks 🙏. I have the iLoud Micros for quick and dirty and listening but as you said…looking for something with batteries. Currently using a tiny Bose Soundlink 2 which is surprisingly powerful for the size but the built in battery doesn’t pack enough juice.

    I like that. Nice and compact. Not too many distractions.

  • Finally got all my acoustic treatment shipped to me and installed in the new studio

  • My most basic set-up for a gig with a dance group I regularly work with. (Compare it the larger edition I posted in this thread many pages back.)

    The Pro is running AUM with seven synth channels all running at once (I just fade them up and down as needed), and the Air 3 is running loops and drums. Usually I have the iPads behind the keyboard so that they're right in front of me, but this time was just trying a different setup. The line out from the Rolls mini mixer went into the house P.A. which was right near me.

  • My workspace starting to take shape! Particularly proud of the desk I built myself :smile:

  • @mangecoeur The desk is the first detail I noticed. Nicely done!

    Always inspired by your minimal and elegant approach. I absolutely detest wires. I have severe ADHD so just about anything can distract me so the simpler and cleaner a space…the better my focus. Moving in a few weeks. Actually excited about downsizing. Currently my studio is in a 750 sq ft room which is way too big. At any rate, your studio is a chief inspiration. Must find someone to make me a custom speaker tower. Downside, my studio will now be in a room with a bit more windows. The upside is panoramic views of the ocean while i work. Mountains and ocean are my fav places on earth. Calm and healing. I’ll be in a high rise condo so the windows are ultra thick hurricane proof so interested to see how it effects sound and how I’ll treat it. My belief has always been just about any room can be perfect no matter what. All about adjusting creatively for the unique character each space provides.

  • @mangecoeur was that desk inspired by the Audio Housing desks? It looks amazing

    Yup, pretty shameless ripoff (sorry audio housing folks). I actually wanted a real one but I couldn’t justify the price. Used some spare wood and cribbed the design from the photos and some guesswork.

    My favourite thing is the pull out shelves, it makes it much more compact when not in use (as a bonus is more spouse-compatible :wink: )

    Thanks man! I'm the same way with wires, they're a necessary evil sadly I just try and hide them! Congrats on the better view though, sometimes that's more important than proper acoustics :)

    Side Note: the main window in my room was installed a. couple inches off center for some reason. So even when I'm dead center in the room and between the speakers, the window is off center. Drives my ADHD nuts!

    I can’t unsee it now that you’ve pointed it out @Tarekith lmao It’s wild how something of so little consequence is such a big deal for people like us. Gift and a curse I guess but def drives me nuts.

    I’ll raise your one slightly off centered window with 4 criminally off centered ones. See, the developer of my place was Florida Man. Clearly. This goofy mf put the windows in the Northeast Corner of the room a foot away from the ceiling.lol. They stop at a quarter length from the corner so there’s just maaaad wall space to the side and bottom of the windows. Why tho?!😵‍💫 I’m on the 11th floor so I have to get a standing desk and a high adjustable chair or I’ll be looking at the sky while I work.

    Dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. Of course I bought it 😭😩.

  • Oh that is trippy.

    Yours looks great. I have one of the Audio Housing ones and it’s beautifully built. I also really dig the sliding shelves. Very good design.

  • that Tarekith workspace looks gorgeous, I feel I need to get some mastering done there one day just to see what it's capable of :)

  • Oops I did it again; new speakers cause audio reshuffle madness…I’ll try and remember to take another when it’s all back together

  • All back together… this’ll last, about a week I reckon 😅

  • Couch setup. All fits in small basket that can be stowed under coffee table. Lavalier mic for scratch vocals is on the way. It will fit in the basket too.

  • Been re-organising the desk and some other stuff...
    ...here's my two current 'corners' with absolutely zero sound treatment :sunglasses:

    Yeah, that's my trusty TX81Z that is now in proper working order again...
    ...plan to go thru some of the other stuff from the closet later on...
    (I may have to take my SY85 to a quick visit to Yamaha and retrofit it with a USB Floppy Emulator. The dude serving the Clavinova Grand Piano at a local church told me it should be no worries maybe $150 or so in parts and labour).

    We'll see as my SY85 is already 30 years old...
    (Got too much hardware laying around so I need to keep it simple)

    Cheers!
