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.
evolving MIDI phrase builder with Mozaic
Hi there … special welcome to @wim and the other script-wise women & men of Mozaic 😉
got an idea in my mind, but before hacking myself into the jungle of Mozaic – the birdcalls getting louder & louder synchronistic more & more harmonic and pleasant – remembered myself that something sweet at first sight, can turn out & into a swamp you won’t get out off again, bound by the “selfish” idea & creativity that wants to be fulfilled … but the mind cannot deliver it, clashing with reality or the tools 😉.
I would like to hear some comments on the idea itself and thoughts or advice if this is technical nonsense / hard way to implement in Mozaic or just a breeze for a sunny coding afternoon (or a week or two 😉).
What should it be about :
- you got a nice chord progression going or just love to create songs from a chord progression as a starting point
- you want to breath rhythm and live into the chord progression, which means not only playing the chords with sustained notes, but take the notes of the chords and create a melody out of it, also with several notes playing simultaneously, which I would call harmonic phrases, because they are “build out of” a chord and are not a chord in their primary intention (although technical they are) … but also playing the full chords in rhythmic patterns (like a guitarist strumming chords)
What could it look like (feature wise) – existing beings on other planets, like the PC 😉
How do you want to do it
1st Input : iOS app that got chords & MIDI out - a lot I think 😉, but to name my favorites
2nd Input : an easy to tweek 1 or 2 bar MIDI Note “Designer” - editor alike, but more advanced, so that one can come up with interesting results, due to its “different & not straight ahead / linear time logic”
o Fuge Machine
o … there are more, but I think Fuge Machine makes this idea most comprehensible in a visual manner
a Mozaic script that gets both of these inputs
o inside AUM just by selecting both as MIDI Sources and routing them in onto different channels
o let the 2nd input work as a cookie cutter on the 1st input … and other musical ideas to let the “secondary notes” be an ever changing musical DNA that creates new musical beating & sounding cells out of the chords (primary notes)
What do you think?
