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.
Because, Novation Circuit! 😍😍
Been digging back in to my Novation Circuit. I'm in love... finally. It took replacing the default sample set with a bunch of weirdo s*%t for the two of us to really bond.I'm so glad I did it! Now I wish I could quickly bounce pattern chains to Blocs Wave but that's just because I'm lazy (bouncing to Blocs works just fine for the patient).
Love working with it by itself. Synth macro knobs can be frustrating or inspirational. Seems like an obvious OS update to allow users to set what SHIFT+Knob controls on the synth patches. It would be a set once and forget sort of deal in my mind. To each their own but I'd be thinking along the lines of 1=Cutoff, 2 = RES, 3=Attk, 4=Release, 5=OD, ...
Love using synth 1+2 to sequence synths hosted in AUM. And/or one of the synth channels as the transpose basis for several AUM MIDI channels/sequencers. Thanks, Bram!
Love finding whatever edges I can when sequencing it all stand alone.
Two questions for the Circuit lovers out there (er, here). 100% OT because they're all about Circuit stand alone.
Is it possible to change a synth patch on a step or pattern basis? Like you can "sample flip" on the drum channels? I know that you can automate the synth knobs but I'm wondering about full preset replacement per pattern (or step).
Is it possible to have more than eight patterns per track? I haven't really messed with it much but I know there are "chains of pattern chains" now. I've watched a few tutorials and read the manual but I'm still left wondering: does any of this mean you can have more than 8 patterns per track in a session? I saw something that made it seem like you could have 32 patterns per track but hell if I can find that video now! Was I just lost in learning/wishful thinking?
