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.
Parallels between propellerhead Reason and Korg Gadget.
I've used Reason off and on since version 1 and the same with Korg Gadget.
Yesterday it hit me how the development of Gadget resembles that of Reason:
1. Reason 1 started out as a very closed system with just some sythesizers and drum machines.
Korg Gadget very much the same.
2. In version 2 midi was added to control external gear.
Enter the Tapei midi gadget in Gadget 2.
3. I believe Reason 2.5 introduced Record, a seperate application which allowed for audio recording.
In a later version Record was incorporated in Reason and so audiotracks where introduced in Reason.
Korg added Zurich in an update.
4. For years people have asked Reason to open up and allow the use of VST's.
It resembles the current requests of Gadget users for allowing the use of AUv3's.
I think it's interesting to see both products (from different era's and platforms) travelling a similar path.
Soo...some speculation... a while back we've got the Stockholm gadget which introduced a piece of Reason in Gadget.
What if Korg Gadget will be the platform for propellerhead to enter the ios game?
Propellerhead is a small company, certainly in comparison to Korg, so suppose Korg buys Propellerhead or at
least strengthens the ties between the 2 companies?
what do you think?
