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.
Are The Better iOS apps More Intuitive Than Desktop?
I have no experience with desktop and I am not trying to start a debate between the two. I would just like to know if others share my experience. I rarely use a manual and most non acoustic apps are rather inexplicable to me at first. Yet, if I leave them alone and return once in a while, each app seems to reveal itself in a very intuitive way. SpaceCraft is a perfect example. I hadn’t a clue how to use it, import sounds, play it as an instrument, adjust parameters, etc. I managed to route a static track to Cubasis early on, liked it and went no further. Yet when I returned to it a few days ago suddenly it made a lot more sense to me. I imported a couple of tracks I had made previously and I could play it as a melody instrument.
So what is going on? And do desktop users have similar experiences? I tend to think that the intuitiveness must be built in by the dev (Cubasis is another great example). Also, that my personal experience is the gradual accumulation of the pieces of the puzzle, tho I still can’t get midi out and midi in, no matter how often it is explained! It seems midi in means midi out and vice versa!
