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.
iPhone output to UCA222 input levels issue
When I record my iPhone with my laptop using Behringer UCA222 audio interface, there is an issue with audio levels.
- iPhone has volume output set to max, with for example Noir with Maxima in AUM and output at 0 dB (for test purpose in AUM).
- iPhone is connected to UCA222 with lightning to jack adapter and jack to RCA cable.
- UCA222 is connected to laptop with USB running Asio4all driver (bypassing Windows audio settings).
- In Ableton Live, iPhone recording is around -8db.
So it’s not possible to mix Ableton sounds and iPhone sounds in real-time easily with that 8db difference.
I suppose it’s related to line levels differences?
How to manage this? Using a preamp?
For those who record iPad/iPhone on laptops/desktops, what are your solutions to manage levels?
Thinking about buying another audio interface.
