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.

Music apps which support (qwerty) key bindings....?

Maybe this is more for the wiki... but I’d like to know of apps which support key bindings (as in Bluetooth QWERTY key bindings). I recently re-downloaded Group The Loop and explored key bindings (nicely implemented).

So, do you know of any other apps with Bluetooth QWERTY keybinding functionality ?

  • Patterning 2 has this and looks like it’s really well implemented.

    I’m not sure if it will work with a cheap generic Bluetooth keyboard? If someone has that answer that would be great!

    Ah yeah, forgot that one - it works with my relatively cheap Bluetooth case keyboard thing.

    So we got....

  • Thanks for the info, will pick up one of those keyboards later!

    Adding Sidecar Midi Controller to the list... so that’s.....

    ....looking for more if anyone knows of any... cheers....

  • If we are talking loopers... can’t forget about the original Loopy HD <3

    I’m pretty sure it supported BT key bindings even before MIDI B)

  • Haven’t tested with BT keyboard, but Model 15 has a nice keyboard implementation for the smart keyboard cover I have. Would kind of assume it works with BT as well - but might be wrong.
    I’ve also asked @j_liljedahl in my most humblest of voices for keyboard support in AUM. Would be AMAZING to use the keyboard cover/BT kbd to mute/unmute channels, or use as actual keys for playing.

    D’oh! I completely missed key binding settings in Loopy HD

    Another one I completely missed (Model 15).

    Oh wow yes, imagine if you could bind keys like you can midi in AUM. I bet that’s been asked before mind!

  • Thanks for this thread @d4d0ug
    I own all those apart from group the loop. Loopy HD is the gold standard on iOS for me even after all the years but I will give that one a look.

  • We can add Drambo to the list as of the last update as well. It’s super quick to midi learn new key bindings, also effective on AUv3 apps hosted within Drambo.

    Midi bindings or qwerty keyboard bindings?

    Hmm, well by default the QWERTY keyboard functions as a keyboard to play notes. Most keys can also be mapped to any learnable function or parameters within the app. When mapping ‘K’ for example, it doesn’t say ‘cc whatever is mapped’ it simply says ‘k is mapped’.

    Yess! I’m glad Drambo is on the list!

  • There’s also the DAWs N-Track Studio and Audio Evolution. And the audio editors Hokusai 2 and Ferrite as well.

    Keep em’ coming!

  • Wait can AUM or Audiobus be mapped to a Qwerty?

    You’re missing loopy in your list. Just saying.

    Many more apps maybe tend to increment the AZERTY or QWERTY support first could be AUM and AUM convert this keyboard signal into a CC or NOTE 🙌😬🤪
    = instant pedal board for cheap with an old usb keyboard ( activate recording ON/OFF, PLAY/ STOP, MUTING tracks, DISABLE AUV3/IAA slots...)
    Please make AUM great again 🤪😂

    Seriously. That’d make it a waaaay better “daw”, or at least performance environment.
    When Drambo got QWERTY support it was seriously game changing for me. Sometimes I just open up Drambo solely to use the magic keyboard as a midi controller for my hardware.

    All serious hosts or standalone apps should support it, in my (entitled) opinion lol.

    I'd love a midi AU that converts QWERTY to midi, so I could use a keyboard with AUM.

    I wonder if Mozaic could do this? cc @brambos

    At this point it doesn't. Keyboard events were not so useful in the past (e.g. because you couldn't get separate press and release events, just a single keypress event). Not sure if that has changed in the meantime?
