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.
I like iOS, but its so darn limiting for even simple tasks.
I dont feel like writing this out, I’ve had many issues doing simple things in iOS that would of took seconds on a desktop...
Ill just throw a few examples
Routing audio from youtube into garage band, so I can record the audio playing and sing karaoke over it
Only being able to have like 1 app open at once
iOS not being able to multitask, like TBH this is the whole problem
iOS is for opening one thing, and staying within that one thing. There’s no leaving the walled space that u have open, and no connecting external things to it.
Desktop is like a fully customizable space, where you can link anything to anything easily
that right there is my argument right now. It feels so limiting working on iOS.
Browsing the internet for information is so slow, on desktop i use mouse to open 100 tabs, Ctrl+alt+w to close tabs, ctrl+s, ctrl+a to go back n forth between tabs. I get through all of them in 5 mins.
Clip studio paint, same as desktop version, but opening reference images, and arranging them, and opening up a tab to reference items, while drawing is so much of a hassle on iOS...
On desktop you could just have all the tabs there, easily switch to them, open up a 3D program, pose and screenshot, paste into new window. It’s just so much faster workflow...
There’s so much more, its just so annoying, i get frustrated everytime I try to make stuff on iOS
But i fuking love that its so simple same time, argh.
