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.
Keeping it SIMPLE with kids… GarageBand or Gadget
Those of us that teach music to kids know that most kids do best focusing on a single instrument at first. Sure, there are some kids who are either adept enough, or hard-working enough, to master multiple instruments, but most start out with a single instrument.
With that in mind, I’m trying to decide whether garageband or gadget is the best “first instrument.“ I like garageband for the instruments, basic features, linear songwriting, and “rounded out“ nature. I like gadget because it seems a little bit quicker, and the variety of the gadgets.
Which would you choose first?
Well I respect garageband, I personally don’t use it. But I am leaning towards garageband with regards to kids.
By the way, I plan on using both of these apps, I just want to sequence them. Ultimately, it doesn’t matter that much.
