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.
need a new audio interface...
i want to get a new audio interface for my ipad/ pc.
i'm currently using the rme babyface (first version) and the ipad air 2, but i'm hoping the rumours of new ipad pro versions being released soon, is correct.
if so, i'll probably buy one of those new ones.
if not, i'll probably buy the latest ipad pro version available.
i've used the rme babyface for almost 10 years now and it's been great, but lately i've been having problems, that i think are related to the breakout cable.
i'm gonna order a new breakout cable, just to make sure, but i also feel that it's time for a change, so i wanna try another audio interface.
also, it would be nice with 4 inputs, instead of 2...
i've read/ watched a lot, regarding audio interfaces lately and right now, i'm leaning towards the following 2:
- audient id44
- focusrite clarett 4pre usb
i've been in contact with audient and they don't recommend the id44, for use with the ipad.
this is very unfortunate, as i was pretty set on buying this.
this is what audient wrote to me:
"i'm afraid the id44 isn't ipad compatible and there is no software which can control the id44 on ios.
i can't recommend the id44 for use on ios"
they also wrote, in another response:
"the only device from our interface range that we officially support for ios is the id4.
you might be able to use our other interfaces as simple input and output devices with an ipad, but they are not fully ios compatible, as some features require the id mixer software in order to be used, while all features for the id4 are available from the unit itself."
so, it doesn't sound very promising, but i appreciate their honesty.
i'm pretty sure though, that i've read about ipad musicians, successfully using other audient audio intefaces, than the id4...
anyone here using audient (other than id4) with your ipad and can share some info about this?
anyone here actually using the id44 specifically, with your ipad?
regarding my other option, the focusrite audio interface...
it doesn't seem to have any ipad software either, from what i've read?
i haven't been in contact with them yet, but i probably will...
anyone here using one of the clarett 2/4/8pre usb audio intefaces and can share some info about this?
both of my options are a pretty costly, so i just wanna make 100% sure, that i won't run into any compatibility problems, using them with my ipad/ pc setup.
i'd really appreciate some help from users of these audio interfaces, that could help me decide the very best/ right option.
i'm a singer/ songwriter and the primary use of the audio interface, would be to record my own vocals, into auria pro (or maybe cubasis) using my condenser mic.
then export the audiofiles to my pc, for further editing and completion of the song.
another use would be to film myself, performing songs, using a drum machine (either the beatbuddy, or a bass drum stomp pedal) and the voicelive 3.
probably some other scenarios that i can't remember right now (it's pretty late here in sweden).
