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.

Novation Circuit users...

Meanwhile we dream with an update from Novation next NAMM...

Could someone use something like midi wrench to see what midi data outputs circuit from usb and midi? I have seen the programmers guide but I don't want to edit the Circuit, I want to control iOS apps with it.
Also I read the data sent by din is different from usb...

Someone using it this way?
Thanks <3

  • Isn’t this possible with holding shift switching on and go to the midi menu.
    I know (from yesterday ;)) that it’s the green on second from left (bottom row). Needs to lit up.

    Then you can select circuit in AUM and play the iOS plugs. I think it’s the same way you can record on the circuit and play your sequence back?!?! Isn’t it? Maybe that helps a bit already ;)

    IDK since I haven't one... my main purpose will be as surface controller (with integrated groovebox) instead the opposite.

    So AFAIR pads are velocity sensitive (and send note) also lots of other buttons (I want to know about the upper row over the 32 rgb and how these will mess...)

    Probably a nutty idea but I can't understand why novation still not gets proper design in some of their gadgets thinking a bit more outside the box.

    I will end building my own custom controller but having so nice layout build for groovebox and not for the rest... even a special midi mode supporting Launchpad app will be NUTS!

  • Ah i See... you should check this video regarding midi controller

    This for using the rotaries...

    The pads all act different in different screens too...for example on the main session page the pads send Program Change....but on the synth page they send Notes with velocity

    Messages are sent on different channels as well.....fo rthe session page, messages are sent on CH16...and when in Synth1, notes are sent to Synth 1 channel (default CH1) and on Synth2 send to CH2 by default....on the drums pages they are sent on CH10. Synth1, 2 and drum channels are settable on the unit (with correct firmware version installed)

    Not sure that the 'buttons' above the 32 pad grid send any MIDI

    Thanks guys. That behaviour will limit my use so discarded...

  • Since the new year I moved my Circuit from over there gathering dust looking at me, to over here on the other arm of the settee, looking at me.

    Yesterday and today I’ve actually been using it. I’ve hooked it up to my Mac and put the editor on it. I remember now why I bought it. It’s the ‘one’ synth (not on iOS) that I wouldn’t mind settling on. From a synth programming point of view, it’s all I need (except for VPM, which is why I’m also interested in the Nu:Tekt NTS-1).

    I’ve decided that if I get some momentum up with the Circuit, and that probably involves making up some overlays that I can place nearby the eight irritatingly anonymous knobs (not over the knobs, I’d have to cut out holes, and that’s more bother than it’s worth) then I can write the contents of any macros I create or use. It really is those knobs, I’ve come to hate them, they were such a fucking moronic stupid cretinous idea, I really resent Novation for the idiocy of making a product with no way of knowing which knob is which, the result being simply “never touch the knobs, they probably won’t do what you want”. So, back to paper for this.

    I think I remember just prior to the time I bought it I decided that it was a stupid idea on their part, but I could always just use it as a bunch of pads, and also as a superb synth sound source. Somehow I must’ve forgot that and tried using it as a whole little instrument. From now on it’s just a synth sound source to me, and a very good one at that.

    Don’t be so polite, tell us what you really think 😂

  • To me the real magic of circuit and its suitability to work with iOS is in the fact that pressing a session load button fires off a PC message. This means that if you assign that PC number to an Audiobus preset you can load the whole shebang with only one button press. This is absolutely priceless live.

    One button press and you’re ready to go. Get it?! It’s freakin’ amazing!

    I ditch my idea of use it as controller for other purposes but for those of you loving the design :trollface: maybe this makes it a bit easier...
