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.
Cubasis 3....the 3 wishes game
I think most of us hope that Cubasis 3 is not tooo far away but still far away enough to maybe have an impact of what should be included in our opinion.I'm curious what people like to see most but let's keep it to 3 things.My biggest wish by far is a stable clock and synchronizing.For AU/Midi clock but also simple midi notes (sometimes) have an unwanted"human feel" more often than i like.And it's so unpredictable.Sometimes it's good (but never really perfect),than it can be just"workable" and other times it's awful like a drunken Oktoberfest Visitor.This can even happen in the same song after reopening it.And it doesn't matter how complex (or not!) the stuff is.
I even started to think the clock's mood is weather dependent
I don't know if i'm too picky but my music is very timing critical (i make mostly some detroit/chicago house inspired stuff) and with all the beautiful AU's that have an own sequencer (especially all the
midi AU stuff) it's even more important for me to have a rock solid clock.I don't know much about all different hosts/DAWs but Auria delivers a clock that is hammered in stone.I can run a dozen
Midi Sequencer (i.e. the Rozetas,Atom Piano and StepPolyarp) that drives the same amount of
Drumboxes,Samplers and Synths.And i don't get a single hickup.Never pushed AUM that far but
the results with simpler stuff were always good.So a reliable clock IS possible these days.
Anyway,here's the rest:
- reliable clock
- Higher ppqn resolution.
- Sub Groups/Busses
Of course,there's (always) more but i think it's interesting to keep it focussed.
One more thing is not a wish but maybe an annoying bug.Cubasis seem to prioritize graphic over audio because i often get short but nasty audio glitches when i open the mixer or plugin windows.No matter what latency or CPU load.While i love the smooth Interface that's still a no go. Again,for comparisons sake,Auria never does this even with high CPU load.I wonder if it has something to do with the 120HZ screen of my 10,5 pro.
