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.
Ridiculously complex MIDI routing help required
I have a setup where I’m using an Octatrack, a Morningstar MC-6 MIDI pedal, a pair of H9s, and an iPad. Currently, it looks like this:
It’s a bit convoluted, but it works. The idea is that the MC-6 can control the H9s, and also the Octatrack.
The Octa’s MIDI THRU goes to the H9s, which lets them receive the original MIDI signal.
The Octa’s MIDI OUT goes back into the MC-6, and magically also gets sent to the H9s. This is to send the Octa’s MIDI clock and transport to the H9s to sync them.
This all works, amazingly. But if I want to send the MIDI to the iPad, I have to put the Arturia Keystep in there to act as a DIN-to-USB adapter.
If I buy an iConnecticiry Mio 2, will this work? I would use it like this:
That seems a lot simpler. Does the routing work like this?
