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.

  • I wonder if anyone will pay that price for a non-AUV3 app now that IAA has been deprecated. If not for that, I may have bought it.

    Same for me I don’t buy anything non auv3 compatible.

  • I appreciate the dev putting so much effort into the app, being around just over 900mb, but just under 30 euros for a drum app.. It’s a bit ouchy... A little to much in price mate.. Probably it may get AU eventually, but still... Bit much for an app that plays drum sounds, considering how many, & what is available now.. Don’t mean to poo, poo it.. :D

    Not too concerned about AUv3 for my use case. I see this more of a jamming tool to augment the sounds built into my e-Kit with more tweak-ability than anything else on iOS. The sounds would need to be out of this world for me to bite at the current price! But I’d definitely pick it up on sale regardless.

  • No single outs??

  • I'd be interested to see how this works with different makes of e-kit and speficially the hi-hat controller. The Alesis DM touch app didn't work well with my Roland pads, and I couldn't get the hi-hat open-close and in-between to work successfully. I have a DM Dock sitting unused, so I'd love to find an iPad app to revive it!

  • Need to try it before I buy it - some kind of demo mode.. like Midi Guitar 2.. as @Oblique mentioned, the hi-hat controller is the hardest part to get right.. I would love to have an E-drum specific app for my Roland TD-8 kit.. plug & play.. + presets for different hardware kits already built-in. Unfortunately - I think BarbaXDrums, the way it is right now (including the price), is going to be a hard sell..

  • Anyone compare it to Drum Perfect Pro? I have a Yamaha electronic drum kit and since its MIDI-out is different from GM and Roland (& Alesis i think) i wonder if it can handle it without having to relearn the triggers every time (it does say it supports it).

    Oh, also wonder if it allows to import samples as opposed to being forced to buy some IAP crap.

  • Update + price has dropped to $13.99.
    More videos have been added on the Tube as well.

    I don’t have DDP but the samples have a nice crispness to them and each kit piece can be further tweaked with eq/effects.

    Interesting that your module doesn’t model confirm to the GM standard. My Yamaha DTX 502 plays nicely with apps such as BeatHawk, GarageBand and DrumJam so no remapping required. If your module has a ‘GM Kit’ preset perhaps you could try that? In any event, BarbaXDrums supports midi learn so you can set up your kit and save it as a user preset. Interestingly BarbaXDrums doesn’t recall the last kit played and reverts to a ‘blank’ kit on launch which is a minor inconvenience.

    No sample import that I can see.

    I love the concept of this app but it needs some polishing to compete with big boys. I’ll be sending my thoughts to the developer shortly.
