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.

You can only keep one of each type. Must be AuV3

    Subtractive synth: SynthMaster One or Mood

    FM synth: KQ Dixie

    Samploid synth: what’s this then? Like a romper?

    Granular synth: Stria

    Reverb: will have to wait until I’ve tried the TB and Eventide ones

    Delay: fuck off am I only having one delay!

    Chorus: FAC

    Guitar amp sim: Stark probably for the extra it does and AU

    Compressor: Fabfilter

    Limiter: Maxima

    EQ: Fabfilter or TB

    Sequencer: see my answer to Delay! As many midi and audio sequencing and destroying options in AUv3 as possible running in AUM

    TB-303 synth with TR-909/808/606 drum machine: I would have Pure Acid for the 303 and EG Pulse for drums

  • Personally I would ditch the FM synth and rompler (if that’s what it is) for another two Subtractive synths, but would choose ones that give more options in their osc sections.

    I wouldn’t class Wavetable in this bracket, but as you are, PPG WaveMapper then

  • Could you imagine compressing this

    to those few apps!!! I can’t even fit all my apps on my current iPad.

    Remember half the fun of iOS music making is buying some new apps to play with every month :p

    Beside for reverb maybe just Drumbo for everything :)
    The reverb could then FAC Alteza.
    So everything is in the future.

  • Subtractive synth: Zeeon (Not the most flexible but the easiest to use)

    Compressor: TB Barricade

    Limiter: TB Barricade

    EQ: TB EQ

    Sequencer: There is no acceptable sequencer out yet in the AUv3 world.
