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.
Full Salamander Grand Piano for AudioLayer
(Updated April 6)
I have created an Audio Layer edition of the Salamander Grand Piano -- an excellent quality free piano library sample. My instrument does not contain the instrument samples (which take up 1.2GB for the 44.1khz 16-bit version -- 48kHz 24-bit is also available).
There is a multi-step process to get the library and my instruments into AudioLayer.
* Download the sample library
* Download my zip file with EXS24 file
* Create a folder with the EXS24 file and the folder of samples
* Move the folder into the AudioLayer folder (or import folder if you use cloud storage)
* Tap on the EXS24 file in the Files app (which causes AudioLayer to import the file and samples)
* Download my AudioLayer instruments and move them into the AudioLayer folder
* Tap on the instruments in the Files app
- Visit this page for links to the sample library and download it:
- Download the zip file with the EXS file attached to this post.
- Unzip the zip archive that contains the EXS file
- Create a folder that you will eventually move into the AudioLayer folder. The folder should contain the EXS file from my zip AND the folder of samples from the archive you downloaded. For example, create a folder called SalamanderAL. Put the EXS file (not the ZIP archive) into SalamanderAL and drag the folder that contains your samples into SalamanderAL
- Drag SalamanderAL into whatever AudioLayer folder you normally load instruments from. If you DO NOT use cloud storage, drag your Salamander folder into the AudioLayer folder that appears On My iPad. PRO TIP: if you have the folder on your Mac, you can AirDrop the folder from your Mac to your iPad. If you use cloud storage, drag the folder into AudioLayer's import folder.
- On your iPad, use Files to navigate to the folder that you just created.
- Tap on the exs file and AudioLayer should start up and import the EXS file and samples. I have sometimes had a crash the first time it imports. If this happens, reboot your iPad and try again.
