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.

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

Pinch out view AUM?

edited January 2 in App Tips and Tricks

I’ve noticed in a couple of Doug’s vids he’s pinched out (?) the view in AUM, so you can see a zoomed out overview of the channels. @thesoundtestroom

Is this possible, is it an iOS 13 thing, or was another app involved?

Can’t find anything on the interwebs about it, and my own attempts don’t seem to work, but if it’s possible, and anyone knows the trick please share it!

    Just drag the output icon of a channel upwards or downwards.
    It's used for re-ordering channels but you can also use it to "zoom out".

    It’s a nice feature, but I wish it would stay zoomed out when I took my finger off the screen.

    yep, i asked a few times for scaled GUI, i suggested an option to have the channels to scale down as you add more channels.

    Apparently this is not easy due to the graphics, i don't quite understand why as when you zoom out the GUI looks sweet.

    The bottom icon bar has plenty of space left for adding zoom buttons (+/- or presets like 35/50/70/100%). @j_liljedahl might consider that, I think it would be a good idea because sometimes you'll want direct access to more mixer channels.
    Zoom out mode would require increasing the size of the mute, record and solo buttons though.

    An even better solution than just zooming out could be to make the channel strips slimmer and keep their height. What we want is simply more channels on one screen, right?
    And just have two buttons on the lower bar: "Normal" (4 channels) and "Slim" (8 channels).
    I believe that @j_liljedahl didn't expect us to use AUM so extensively 😉

    Edit: On the iPhone, it would be 1 or 2 channels respectively.
