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.
Sample grabbing app for live tweaking of longer ambient loops?
Advice sought: most of my stuff is solely IPad, mostly DAWless dark ambient achieved in AUM and mixed in Cubasis - heavily effected, slow soundscapes that are purely app based, and where sample manipulation does takes place it is slow time in wav editing via Hokusai etc.
Lately though I’ve got interested in grabbing live electro acoustic sounds (whacking a reverb tank, close miking objects being struck, etc) and warping these sounds to feed into the soundscapes. I’ve seen what can be accomplished with hardware like the Digitakt, and am wondering what, if any, apps can offer that real time grabbing and warping of discrete samples? I have Looperverse, still exploring it, and couldn’t get on with Loopy. My stuff is definitely not EDM but I do wonder if anything like the Akai MPC pro app, Grooverider, or Beathawk might be a solution? I’m looking for something that can quickly let me grab a sample, tweak, stretch, pitch or FX mess with it, and record the result into AUM and/or Cubasis. Suggestions?
