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.

[Solved] Lumbeat's Drummers apps - Midi in : How to ?

I first posted this in another thread, but perhaps a dedicated thread could be more efficient... so here is a mystery I'd like to unravel :

How this guy managed to use Mid East Drummer as a sound module ? Same question about all Lumbeat's drummers that have the midi in feature... πŸ€”
I just can't figure out how to make this work. πŸ€’

A very detailed kind of tutorial would be a total gift for me !

Thanks πŸ™

    Turn on Sound Module mode.

    Click on the MIDI Cable icon and set things up there.

    Things you set up are: MIDI channel, the note numbers it responds to, and the device to receive MIDI from.

    @espiegel123, it doesn't work at all on my iPad πŸ˜₯... Here's how I try to set both apps up :




  • I explained how I get it to work in this other thread on ME Drummer.
    Scroll down the first page to about the middle and look for my posts.

  • Route the keyboard straight into ME drummer?

  • @CracklePot, sorry, I've seen your explanations, but (shame on me) I don't understand how you proceeded πŸ™ˆπŸ₯Ί

    Aw man, just ask! 😊
    Do you have Audiobus 3 or Midiflow Adapter?
    If no, I recommend getting Audiobus 3. It covers a lot of holes in iOS music production.
    If you are tight on funds, maybe get MF Adapter if you can. It is pretty useful when apps don’t get along.

  • Yes, I have Audiobus 3

    Ok.

    In Audiobus, setup a Midi strip like this. The Virtual Midi options are under the System tab when you are loading the input and output. I chose Channel 1 for input and Channel 10 for output.

    In AUM, connect the KB (or a midi app) to the Audiobus 3 input.

    In ME Drummer, turn on Sound Module and tap the Midi plug icon. Select Audiobus 3 as the Midi input.

    Go back to AUM and test the KB in this range. You should hear some ME Drummer responding.

    Thanks SO MUCH ! It works like a charm... and I would never have been able to set this up on my own. It very kind of you to have taken the time to help me πŸ‘.

  • @CracklePot - Thanks for solving this plumbing puzzle. It took pictures and the right clues
    ... like D1 being activated by keyboard D2. What a mess but hopefully AUM (and the AudioBus) saves will allow me to run MIDI into Lumbeats.

    Hopefully someone will put these images and instructions into the Wiki and we can point there (or here once this thread is in the Wiki thread list).

    I've spent so much time working on this and given up thinking the plumbing isn't in the apps... Network Session 1 MIDI, AUM destinations... so many combinations that don't work
    and even if they did they don't agree what C1 is (it's probably that old C3 vs C4 controversy between Roland and Yamaha, was it?).

    So, nice to have a solution. Big win.

    PM me and I'll mail you a gift card. So nice to have the answer. I love these drums and want the full benefit from the $160 spent so far. The new IAP funk kits are ready to be mined for some killer grooves.

    I wonder if this setup also helps just use AB for the Start/Stop controls for the Drummer and AUM installed AUv3's. I hope the sync is crisp.

    That didn’t work for me. Seems like it should....

  • This had been bugging me also.
    Been trying with reggae drummer
    Finally got it working, now saved setup inside audiobus, with octatron and the keyboard finally sending messages to reggae drummer.
    Not sure but following the instructions and opening the apps individually finally got it working for me
    Thanks

    You can use any app that shows it’s midi port to ME drummer, so you can select it in the ME drummer midi input list.
    The port named ME drummer virtual midi that you see in other apps doesn’t seem to be functioning.
