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.
Takete sample manipulation
starting this thread in the hope that Takete users will share their thoughts regarding the audio component of the app.
edit - also on sale for $12.99
i’ve only used Takete for a few hours. i haven’t used JammPro extensively, but i enjoy it, especially the time stretching algo’s.
in order to understand Takete i’ve needed to use prepared loops ( bpm ). i’ve loaded unprepared loops in as well.
using the ‘file player touch’ has some similarities to JammPro, but it feels very different.
it is reminiscent of parts of older versions of ableton live.
a user in the other thread mentioned that Takete wasn’t worth it for the audio component. i disagree. i’ve found that Takete brings unexpected and fantastic results.
the ‘file touch player’ is highly useful, and nice to work with visually.
the ‘granular’ function is unusual and primitive. the sounds that come from ‘granular’ can also sound primitive ( though they aren’t limited to one sound ). i love this function. it reminds me of some of the early reaktor and msp granular examples. i have, and like, a few of the ios granular apps. Takete’s granular is fast and sometimes with results that i don’t foresee. i enjoy that.
‘file touch player’ with unprepared loops becomes very interesting, providing you are willing to let go.
i find Takete and JammPro a little different. they are both useful. i will use both for different approaches and get very different results. it’s not bug free, and it’s still worth more than the sale price imo.
edit - i’ve yet to try Takete’s other audio engines.
