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.

AKAI FORCE?

Review?

Thinking about this versus the New Roland vs Octatrack...........

Still have not pulled trigger on loop box for my rig.

Thanks in advance.

  • Seems unfinished and bit limited in memory terms... search for reviews to find if fits your workflow. Looping side isn't the most straightforward neither...

  • @RUST( i )K Dean over at the Electronisounds Audio YouTube Channel has loads of Force tutorials

  • I have the Akai Force as well
    what would you like to know?

    diff length per pattern?
    diff time signature per patter?
    diff bpm per pattern or scene?
    save custom scales?

    and when are they gonna make a small one close to the size of the Deluge? :#

    This above and:

    USB audio?

    How many MIDI JACKS?

    AUDIO IN OUT #?

    diff length per pattern? Yes
    diff time signature per patter? Not yet, but supposed to be coming __
    diff bpm per pattern or scene? __No, clips all tie to the master bpm, but you can change that with two/three taps, knob, or direct entry...so workaround_j_
    save custom scales? __You can save custom progressions on MPC, so chances are it’s in the pipeline

    and when are they gonna make a small one close to the size of the Deluge? :# know nothing about this

    This above and:
    USB audio? Not yet, but has been stated it will act as a controller and an audio interface soon

    How many MIDI JACKS? 3 Midi in out thru on 1/8” dins included

    AUDIO IN OUT? __ 2 line level that are XLR with phantom power, 4 cv, and 4 audio out 1/4”__

  • I will add it can be a controller through midi jacks at the moment

  • thanks Mr.Smilez

  • You are welcome

  • @RUST( i )K, Did you decide on a favorite for a hardware purchase to scratch that itch, yet?

    Roland MC-707 Groovebox $1000 (16 buttons)
    Akai Force $1300 (64 Pads)
    Elektron Octatrack MKII $1400 (row of 16 step buttons)

  • I’m totally GAS with the Force (now that’s some power nerd geek phrase!).
    I do a lot of audio recording and looping, currently Zenbeats. And I just read a very worrying comment about the audio RAM limitations in the akai Force.
    https://www.mpc-forums.com/viewtopic.php?p=1775370

    Apparently it can’t stream from disk and the amount of audio is limited by ram, which runs out early fast. This is a huge deal breaker!. Any comments?

  • Here’s a very detailed and comprehensive article about how the MPC live/one and probably the Force treat audio in relation to the RAM limit.

    Lab Test: How Much Usable Memory is there in the MPC Live & MPC X?

    https://www.mpc-tutor.com/how-much-memory-mpc-live-mpc-x/

    But now I’m even more confused...

    ...that the MPC Live, MPC One and MPC X can store around 53 minutes of stereo audio in memory, or 106 minutes of mono audio. Remember this assumes everything is at a 44.1kHz samplerate.

    53 minutes of audio seems plenty. Why are people giving different reports about quickly running out of memory with a lot less audio?. Btw it doesn’t specify the Force but in the intro it says it should be applicable as the ram and specs are basically the same.

  • Hi.
    I have a iconnectivity audio4+ paired with my akai force with last firmware 3.1 but i have audio artifacts 🙄🤨
    Anyone have the same setup and can help me?
    I tried lot of different setings with iconfig but i have the same issue
