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.
MIDI Designer Pro 2 hacks
I'm deep into MIDI Designer ("MD") working to build a master control setup for all my iOS apps (hosted in AUM). It's a powerful, high-level programming language and I'm excited for the fine control I can achieve over my complex setup. Highly recommended!
I've read the manual, watched all the videos, and mastered the basics. But there are features that aren't well documented--some of those menu choices in 'Options as Super', for example--and ways the features interact that can be puzzling. If you're working with MD, you know what I mean. I need help with some advanced hacks. But I'm also hoping others working with MD will share their questions and solutions too in this thread.
Hack request: creating a fade for Enso looper.
Enso is an amazing and unique looper. But it doesn’t have a fade function. I've tried to create one in MD; I get pieces working but when I try to automate the whole sequence, I just get a mess.
Here's the first hack I need help with:
I want to create a button that will 1) Trigger the track level to travel gradually from current on-value to zero (utilizing the supercontrols option for a timed "snap sub to value"), then 2) send Stop to Enso, then 3) reset the track level to default (approximately 0 db on the AUM slider). In other words, emulating the fade of almost all other loopers I know.
Any suggestions appreciated. I know some of you guys are MD power users. Let's talk.
