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.
Announcing Audiobus 3.4
I'm very happy to announce Audiobus 3.4, out today! This is a big release that focuses on improving workflow and making it easier to integrate other gear.
There are a bunch of improvements and new features for MIDI Learn, including a new MIDI Learn Receiver which sits in the output of any MIDI pipeline. It's great for controlling parameters from the output of audio units and apps, like LFOs and envelope-following utilities like FAC Envolver:
There's also range adjustments for MIDI Learn parameter actions, and more options for toggle actions, which work well for toggling between effects or synths with one button press.
There's a new "Add" button for appending presets to your current session, so you can use presets like reusable components. It's particularly great with audio units.
And Audiobus now supports MIDI clock sync, as either master or slave, for syncing up your external gear. It also seamlessly bridges between MIDI sync and Ableton Link.
Lots, lots more in this release, including audio unit user presets, Virtual MIDI input and a brand new selector – you can see the full list over at Audiobus' brand new user manual.
I hope you enjoy AB 3.4! If you've got any issues, suggestions or other feedback, feel free to open a new thread here, hit "Get Support" in the app, or just email me.
Stay tuned – there's more good stuff to come in 3.5.
