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.
With the recent thrash about thread I feel the need to invite some positivity in, just as @ashh has done.
I can remember my first days here on the forum. The immediate help I got from the likes of @CracklePot, @wim, @Telefunky , @Samu, @aaronpc and others when I didn’t know how to record a midi track on Cubasis. I remember that no question was too simpleminded to ask. And no one said “go look it up, fuckwit”. I remember the kind support I got when posting my first tracks and insisting I post them in the general discussion forum. No one said “post your crap in Creations, shitwad”. I remember the enthusiasm I felt in writing essays and sharing what my teacher, Connie Crothers, told me about the basics of making music and it’s profound affect on me. And, yes, I remember the first fracas I got into over that and how I lost my cool so easily.
I remember hearing about our philosopher king, @Michael, and something called Audiobus and it’s place in iOS history. And wtf was Auv3, anyway? I remember @waynerowand and his making this forum personal and like a family. I remember a ton of wisecracks and couch philosophers like @JohnnyGoodyear, the Prince of Pithy, chiming in always pitch perfect. I remember good hearted people like @Littlewoodg who never seem to say the wrong thing. And collaborations with @McD, @rs2000, @Daveypoo , @Jankun, @bedheadproducer (where are you, Marc? Come home, there’s cookies in the oven!) And feeling I eventually had an audience for my stuff and a place I could wax off when I felt like it or saw a need for an abstruse POV. And on and on, I guess.
And all this all taking place, for me, in Istanbul Turkey, home of SynthMaster and kebab. And this forum full of friends and uncritical peers who provided companionship, help and camaraderie when I was in a foreign land and without friends.
So, am I grateful? And how. I’m even grateful for the conjunction “And”,which graciously let me overuse her in this thread. And am I grateful for many other things in my life that are not music related but all fit into an attractive, if somewhat unkempt, package? Unequivocally, yes, aye aye, and booyah! And you? Are you grateful in these perilous times?
