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.

Triggering independent patterns/looping patterns

Apps I know so far: Zenbeats, Digikeys, Xequence?, Modstep, Grooverider Gr-16 ...soon Drambo.

What else is out there?


  • How could you forget Beatmaker 3? 😅

    I guess with patterns you mean MIDI patterns?

    Exactly! I don’t have Bm3. Eg pulse ?

    I would like to have them separately drums in one channel and melodic lines in other channels with midi cc trigger.
    I think those novation/ampify count too...

    Instead of working on a linear song mode... you can trigger/loop them in real time... jam session

    So far, I think Zenbeats has it and Bm3 ( as you said) Ns2?

  • Remixlive is coming along like a monster...

  • Gadget can also launch patterns beat-synced but not individually, it's like launching different scenes in Ableton Live.
    That's no problem if you prepare different combinations of pattern sets.

    BeatHawk is another option but it's only one pattern at a time:

  • Jamm Pro offers some unique ways to trigger and play samples

  • The Jamm peeps have hinted at some midi stuff buried in it as well...

    looks so much like launchpad!

  • launchpad but only for audio, but if it was open to midi stuff it could be some pro pro stuff

  • Digikeys has a nice live matrix

  • Remix live is using auv3s? Looks good

  • Still no midi input support? Playing drums on screen is still meh...
