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.
Imagine you can design a hypothetical iOS/iPadOs Music App, what would it do?
Imagine you can design a hypothetical Music App, and have it become a reality.
Describe what it would do.....
This is one of mine:
I'd really like to have a simple way to create and play custom sound samples, that I can make make by layering the sounds from multiple "programable" AU-v3 synths, and effects.
My ideal App will be able to host multiple AU-v3 programable Synths.
I would be able to load one or more synths, and be able to use AU-v3 effects with them.
Then after I program the synths, layer their sounds together, add effects, and have a new sound I want to keep.
The App has a very easy to use sampler section. All I have to do is press one button, and the App automatically builds a "full keyboard range" playable sample, from the layers of sounds that I just made.
After my new sound is sampled. I can save it to my own bank of custom sounds.
The App can then be switched to "play mode" and I can select my custom sound patches using a simple interface, and play them using either an on screen keyboard, or a Midi keyboard controller.
I need to be able to play and record my sounds in a DAW. So I need the app to somehow include an AU-v3 loadable "player module" that can be loaded into a DAW.
If it's not possible for the AU-v3 "player module" to be a part of the same App. Then the "player module" will have to be a separate AU-v3 app. And it has to have the ability to access the same folder of saved custom sound patches as the main App, so I can choose my patches from within the AU-v3 "player module" loaded in the DAW.
