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.
A Practical iPhone Workflow Solution?
I just upgraded my tiny iPhone 7 to the much more manageable screen size of the XR. I never really bothered using the old phone for music, but now i’m keen to either integrate my new phone into my iPad workflow or just have a separate workflow for the XR.
On the iPad I use AUM for noodling and jamming and Cubasis for tracks. My music “style” ranges from chilled ambient jams to techno/trancey type tracks. I do also, sometimes, make a track or two in Gadget and Egoist; though the results there can be a bit samey.
I’m not finding AUM easy to use on the phone tbh, even with the larger screen, and Cubasis is not universal. So I was wondering how all those iPhone musicians out there use their wonderful phones for making music?
App suggestions and workflows, however crazy, would be most welcome. Or, perhaps, an all-in-one solution.
I’m going out with the family for the day, but I’ll be checking in every now and again. I’m really looking forward to reading (and trying out) what you guys come up with.
