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.
Arp "As Played" from External Keyboard
Please help me figure out how I can get the "as played" mode from an arp when fed midi notes from an external keyboard. I've used this effect before with my Alesis Ion to great musical effect. I play a sequence of notes, let it repeat a couple times, then either play a new sequence (a new harmony, or new voicing), and run with that, or catch it into a looper and layer. Preserving the order of the notes is important, and doing it on the fly (no set sequences).
I also want an arp where I can pre-program rhythms. My Ion does this (but the Ion is retired from my setup).
I really like the depth of StepPolyArp, but it doesn't have 'as played." It only has the usual up, down, up/down etc. modes. ** ThumbJam** will do this, but ONLY when triggered within the app; when I use my K-Board or 88-key Roland, it reverts to up/down, etc. even though it's set to "as played." I have read the manual.
Even though I love ThumbJam (surprisingly good internal sounds; deep feature set), a don't see how to do rhythms, as SPA does so well.
I'm looking for a solution that spits out MIDI notes so I can play synths like Zeeon or PSP.
Suggestions? I don't mind buying another arp app, if that's what it takes.
