Audiobus: Your virtual music studio.
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 don’t have Auxy- but I was thinking of getting it due to the seemingly vast amount of preset type sounds it has to offer.
As I was looking I noticed that version 6 has just been released- which seems to have beefed it up considerably as an option.
Here is the details from the news page:-
‘We’re excited to share this major update that will take your instruments to the next level!
Lots of new options for tweaking sounds and effects
All sounds can now have distortion, chorus and EQ
All drum kits can now have delay, distortion, compressor, EQ and ducker
Delay amount can now be set individually for each sample
Notes and automation can now be moved freely when editing
Sounds and samples can now be browsed by category
Samples can now be imported straight from other apps
We have fixed a number of bugs and issues
Updating Sounds in Existing Projects
Your existing projects will use the same sounds as before and you will have an option to update each sound and unlock the new options via the tweak panel. Note that there’s no need to update sounds unless you want to continue working on a project with the new sound options. If you’re happy with a project, you risk messing up your mix when updating a sound since the new version will behave differently. It’s better to create a new project and start exploring the new versions’.
As many are aware- it is a subscription model it’s £4.49 per month which can be cancelled at any time- and for that they offer 7700 instruments and samples with more added monthly and an easy to use award winning pattern sequencer with automation to arrange them in. Sample import but no live recording- but it does have Ableton Link
Im not even sure why I haven’t got it yet- but I think I am about to commit to the free trial 😼
It doesn’t seem to come up much here these days- I know quite a few people look at the subscription aspect unfavourably though and that seems to be a bit of a bugbear.
Anyway what I was wondering was- Forgetting the Subscription aspect- any opinions on the functionallity and usefulness of the app itself? A lot of the user reviews indicate that it has made a massive difference to their musical creativity.
