PSA: Don't update to iOS 12.4 if you use apps in AB output slot or IAA apps that use the mic.

Audiobus feature request: show currently active destinations in MIDI receiver dialog

Sometimes I add an audio source first in the Audio screen, and later on I decide to add MIDI control to it in the MIDI screen. To do that, I have to scroll through my list of AUs, find the same plugin and select "Instance A".

@Michael could you add some way of quickly selecting the MIDI destinations I already have active as audio sources? Now that I think of it, it could also work by long pressing the audio source itself or something like that.

Thanks!

  • Good ideas.

    Side note ... I never scroll lists in Audiobus. I just go straight for the search box and type one or two letters.

    It would also be cool if there was some way to jump to the midi destination app from the connection icon when it’s not an AU. (The other way round from what you’re asking). That might not be possible though. Just a thought.

  • Great idea @jipumarino!

    It's probably just me, but I couldn't quite wrap my head around this one! Could you put it another way?

    True, I do the same, but I still have to keep the “mental link” around, and if there are more than two instances I have to remember that too.

    When there’s a midi output connection to an IAA app that can only be loaded into an audio input, I always want to tap on the midi connection and have it bring up the app. Of course, the app is right there in the top bar, so this is stupid, but because I’m so used to tapping on AUs in the output slots, I seem to think I should be able to tap on the midi connection. No big deal. Just me being me. :D

  • Also it would be nice to be able to scroll left and right from MIDI to Audio to Mixer sections, by just swiping on unused sections on the screen

  • Whoops, just realised I forgot to answer this. Sorry, @wim.

    That's not gonna be possible I'm afraid, 'cos the Virtual MIDI bridge stuff is just that - a bridge over to the legacy Core MIDI stuff. The obvious fix is for those apps that don't support IAA MIDI to just support it, or Audiobus MIDI, or ideally AUv3.

    Swiping's a good idea @silent1, but might be tricky to make it work nicely with scrolling within the individual screens. Certainly doable, but lots of other things to attend to right now.

    No problem, it’s just one of those tiny dumb things. The bar is always there for switching apps. No complaints! 😎

    Also an option that would show the currently loaded apps ,on top of the list ,would be useful ;)

    EDIT: That was exactly what the OP asking.... need coffee!
