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.

• Sonify local weather and astronomical events.

• Use activity types as mode switches, for example walking to automotive.

When used passively, Holon.ist leaves your hands free for your conventional instruments, or anything else. Try controlling timbre and effects with a Suunto Movesense on your head. Add another sensor on your foot for pedal action anywhere.

Holon.ist features a multiuser implementation of Ableton Link that allows collective sync of tempo for every device on the network.

    1. Is the app any use without buying the sensors?

    2. Do you need to be a ballet dancer to use it?

    I had a look at the manual but it just made my brain hurt.
