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.
Looking for guidance on making my own music visualizers/visuals
Ideally, I’d like a thing where I can simply import a track, add some sort of particles or shapes to a black background and then tweak their movements, shapes, colors in realtime with simple sliders and toggles while the track plays and then have the visual output recorded in sync with the track duration for a video/audio export. Now I’ve looked at K Machine, but from what I’ve seen it seems rather 2 dimensional and cartoony looking. I’d like the visuals to resemble something more along the lines of Mazetools Soniface. Speaking of which could that app be used in some roundabout way to generate synced visuals to a track created in another app?
There seems to be a lot of apps on the store that you can load tracks from iTunes into and they’ll give you a handful of visual themes to choose from, but I’d really like to roll my own.
I would prefer not to have to learn some kind of visual programming language. It’s not worth it to me if the process is a painstaking one. I’ve spent years collecting music apps on iOS to make my music making pain free and as simple as possible and I’d like to do the same with the visuals. Essentially crafting the visuals in much the same way as I would tweak a synth or lay out a track if you know what I mean. Are there any relatively user friendly options for this as there are many user friendly music apps? Any guidance appreciated. Thanks
By the way, if there’s a killer app on desktop that anyone knows of, that’s fine too
