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.

Comments

  • Five minutes of fun and I have to say this is great. I wouldnt have got it if it wasnt free and now I feel guilty.
    App store review should fix that!

  • Wow love it!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Thank you!

  • I tried this but there is no velocity which makes it less useful to me. Is there a way to turn velocity on?

    Thanks

    You can always use Velocity Filter (Blue Mangoo) to add velocity

  • For those who have Patterning or EG Pulse (or iMaschine or iMPC Pro), is there any reason to have even a free app like this?

  • Low latency.

    Right above the drum pads is a lock icon. Click on it and it will unlock the pads for editing. Click on the pad you want to edit and scroll down the list of options until you get to "Velocity" then turn it on.

    It is normally $12.99.
    I grabbed it just in case I may find it useful in the future.
