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.

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

Dragonfly Cobalt

New Dragonfly Cobalt has arrived. It's And small, even smaller than the Red was. Nice. Full thoughts once I've had a few days to give it a proper listen.


  • For iOS? I thought the iPhone/iPad DACs were pretty decent.

    For iOS and when I need to do studio work while traveling. I won't always use this with my iPhone, I'm fine with the apple adaptor most times. But for detailed listening sessions I do enjoy it.

  • Cool. I know you have some tasty high end IEMs and a pair of mastering ears so you probably hear more of a difference in DAC upgrades. πŸ™‚

    Well the advantage of using a Dragonfly with any of the newer devices is that it lets you control the sample rate. That was what got me to buy them for my iPhone - the Apple lightning to headphone adapter locks the sample rate to 48khz.

    I have both the Dragonfly Black and the Red (but not the Cobalt) - I can't really tell any difference between them, however they both drive my Senn HD650s comfortably and I really like them: these DACs are really small and portable and can drive any headphone you plug into them.
