Audiobus: Your virtual music studio.
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.
DAW for audio recording/editing, which can be midi slaved(or syncs to BSP in other ways)?
I have been revamping my setup for a while now and think i found the way i would like to make music. Record audio loops from my modular to an ios daw(preferably) and make compositions from them
The 3 voices, drums, bass and lead, go through separate inputs for separate FX chains in AUM, sequenced by BSP and audio from AUM streamed to a DAW. Then cut and arrange the audio loops in a daw. Idea is to record both shorter loops and longer sections, which naturally have all 3 voices mixed together.
Now i need your help selecting the right DAW. I have auria pro, cubasis, bm3 and fiddled with stagelight a bit, but havent used these in a while. Daw needs to be able to somehow record the modular in sync, so that its easier to cut the audio. Midi slaved to BSP, midi transport controls that i can map to BSP or something.
BM3 would be my #1 choice for a daw if i were to make everything on it, but i just need one for audio cutting etc. It has a bonus that i can start/stop it via midi, but it also has some funky midi behavior that i perhaps might be able to get over with the midi filter AU in AUM. And i could route the controller channel on BSP to bm3 pads. But thats not really what im after for in this.
Cubasis doesent seem to react to any transport controls nor has midi.
Auria pro is supposed to work, but i could find a way to get it working with transport controls for some reason.
Stagelight seems like it could evolve into something i would want to use, but needs a bit more polishing to be more appealing.
What else would fit the criteria and workflow? I could also use my computer and some daw on it, but ableton is not fully compatible with mojave yet and i wouldnt care to learn and buy a new expensive desktop daw. And i also have my mpc live as an option to record loops, but im trying to find a replacement for it and sell it to expand my modular setup in some ways.
Any other ideas or suggestions for how to expand this setup?
