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.
Best way to mess with samples on a time line? - Solved!
My stuff mainly involves creating reams of lengthy loops, pitched or otherwise, usually running in and recorded ‘automatically’ from, AUM as original audio/midi streams and/or as pre recorded loops in the File Player.
Occasionally, I need to orchestrate the chaos a little more, which usually means resorting to Cubasis to structure the arrangement when selective channel muting alone won’t cut it, which is a faff.
Ideally what I’d like is an open ‘toolbox’ of audio sample clips, everything from single instrument hits to many seconds or even minutes of sound, which I could freely select and drag and drop onto a timeline, slide back and forth against each other, and maybe once in place pitch up or down, like sliding pieces of a puzzle around. If I could sync this timeline to a host, even better.
Anyone think of a more instinctual process than importing clips into and then out the Cubasis Media library onto tracks?
