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.
Looking for "scale" app that can help me find "interesting & NICE SOUNDING" 6 note "scales"
Here's what I've got & what I want to do.
I have a Nord Drum 3P. It's got 6 pads. Each pad is tied to it's own synth that can do more than just drum sounds. So for this case, just assume it's a keyboard with 6 keys.
Each pad can be "tuned" to a MIDI note/pitch. It can actually do 1/2 pitches... Like midi note 60.5 or 72.5 as well, but I'm not sure if that's relevant.
I'm looking for an app that I can use to quickly discover & audition "scales" or at least 6 note collections of pitches that I can throw on the Nord Drum and play with.
A few more data points:
1) I **need **the app to at least display the midi note numbers. That's a key point. I have other apps that I can use to find scales, etc., but it's a pain in the ass to keep looking up midi note numbers. Kills the flow.
2) I'm not sure (because I don't really understand it), but I don't think things like Wilsonic will work for me as I think it spits out alternate tunings... i.e. pitches that don't line up to midi notes. If there's some way to use Wilsonic to do this, it would be cool as it "seems" powerful (but crazy obtuse).
3) I don't think ScaleGen will work either as again, I'm pretty sure it outputs "weird tunings". But if you know ScaleGen and after readin' above you think it could work for what I'm after, I'd love to read your thoughts.
