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.
What wrong with all DAWs/Apps on iOS?
Why all ios DAWs have some epic fails that kills almost all sense of making jams/music using ipad?
Beatmaker 3: no track freeze (only in epic long way) (many AUv3 synths/effect very heavy so track freeze is must have feature)
Cubasis 2: cannot stretch clips to loop them (basic feature in almost all DAWs on pc) (no clip launcher but for Cubase/Cubasis this is ok)
Stagelight 4: Almost ideal DAW but midi with AUv3 skip some notes and hang some (unusable for now at all), and we waiting for fix 3 months already
Korg Gadget 2: Good DAW. But no support of AUv3, Cannot record audio from Audiobus, No send tracks with effects (only inserts that stacks and create mud and mess)
ModStep: good daw, but no good audio recording, track freeze and seems that it abandoned.
AUM: no integrated looper (you can record and reimport but this breaks all inspiration)
Many loopers (like quantiloop): limited track numbers (seriously? on ipad with mega processor that can handle tons of cool games)
Many grooveboxes: limited number of bars (from 4 to 8 maximum). No support of AUv3 in many apps.
So for now for music sketching/jam best things:
Korg Gadget 2 and AUM + Enso looper + some sequencers like ATOM Piano roll.
For me as Bitwig user - clip launcher is the best thing for creativity. But for now there is no DAWs that work good in that way (there is some but without AUv3 support).
I don't see any sense in full music production on ipad i have pc for this thing.
I use ipad as portable sketch/inspiration device (as most of users here i think). And this is very uncomfortable for now.
Is that so hard to create DAW with:
-Live looping (clips like in bitwig/ableton)
-Clip/track freeze (to reduce CPU usage)
-Unlimited number of tracks (that limited only to your CPU)
Close to this only Stagelight that i hope will be fixed in near future.
