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.
Secret weapon apps / Tribute to Iceworks Lorentz
I posted about this in the Iceworks sale thread but I thought it could merit a separate discussion.
I don’t know whether it’s fair to call Lorentz under appreciated or not (I feel like it is), but to me this synth is really special. It’s the whole “Resonator” thing that they do with their synths. People talk about apps that sound dirty vs pretty but this is where that Venn diagram overlaps haha. The combination of the drive, the resonance feedback, and the unique resonance “pitch” adds up to something really raw but really musical.
Anyone know any other apps that pull off that combination? What’s your under the radar secret weapon app?
I won’t tell anyone, I swear. We’re all cool here. 😎
