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.
AudioLayer crackles and pop - please help me sort this out
@VirSyn please read and respond
I’m getting really tired of that AL repeatedly stops responding sound wise. I have pointed this out before in other threads. For you who don’t know what I do in AL it’s random round robin on my sampled analog synths. I edit patches of them from scratch inside AL as standalone or through GarageBand. The problem often subsides when I have several tracks of AL in GarageBand and I have easily reproduced this issue on several different iOS devices (iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone XR, iPad 2018). But it can also happen when I have just one track instance of AL running. I’ve thought it was a ram issue, but then @rs2000 has pointed out he’s using a large piano library of 2 GB (correct me if I remember incorrectly). He does not use rr though. I’ve tried and changed my instruments to play just regular rr. The problem persists. I therefore bet it’s an issue with round robin as well as the random function of AL and stability issues within the app itself.
To give an example of an instrument that I use for this here’s a copy:
It’s not a big instrument. Not even 200 mb. There’s some (bad) looping going on, but other instruments I’ve used don’t even have looping and the same problems are there anyway: crackles and pops and sound just going away so I have to restart the project and sometimes even GarageBand.
You’d have to replicate this problem by using several tracks to be sure of what’s going on.
Hope you can help!
