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 are your Audio/Midi interface solutions for working with hardware and iOS?
I'm looking to upgrade my interface setup to something with more inputs and a better DAC.
Currently using an iconnectaudio4+ with a 9.7" ipad pro plus a whole pile of hardware and midi controllers.
The iCA4+ excels at audio and midi routing, and I love that it can handle all midi and audio over a single cable, route audio to another ipad or computer, all with very low latency...
but I need more inputs, the DAC isn't anything to write home about, and worst of all, it sometimes drops all usb midi connections for no apparent reason, requiring a hard reset.
My setup relies heavily on the 8 port usb midi host capability of the ica4+, and as I'm shopping around for better sounding interfaces with more channels, I'm realizing that none of them have the midi capabilities that I'm looking for.
Anyone else working with hardware and routing midi and audio to and fro the ipad? What are your solutions? What are the best interfaces, boxes, and hubs for doing so? A lot of the really nice interfaces don't support midi at all. Can you get good results plugging into a usb hub for audio and midi?
