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.
Any iPad DAW connecting to Roland hardware - advice on best way?
I’ve been trying to move to iPad only for a while now, ditching my Mac with its various daws. However, severely tempted by the expensive but brilliant Roland Fantom 7 keyboard. Roland were always my favourite synth brand back in the day.
Roland gear is NOT class compliant. Has great integration with Mac, but requires a dedicated Roland driver on Mac. The USB port on the Fantom can output 16 audio channels at once to a Mac DAW.
I’d like to use Cubasis (or other DAW) to record like this - create some multi channel parts and output from Fantom to multiple separate tracks in iPad at once.
Scratching my head but some ideas come to mind:
Buy an audio interface with 16+ inputs
Only record the outputs from fantom 2 at a a time (on my 2+2 audio interface)
Use an app like Studiomux somehow https://zerodebug.com/studiomux/. Not even sure if this app is still supported or of use.
If anyone could help with advice on best connection method I’d appreciate it!
