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 MIDI note-capture/sequencer
I've read all the recent threads I can find here on MIDI sequencers. But everybody's needs are different and it's hard to translate all the great advice and recommendations into what would work for me.
Thus my question.
What's the best app to do this:
1) Capture notes as I play my keyboard. I'm a piano player and play lots of notes, often improvising, and I'd like a way (other than audio) to capture those amazing melodies I sometimes hit on.
2) Let me edit the notes and extract the best bits.
3) Do other basic sequencing duties, like driving a Tangerine Dream type of sequencer line.
4) Show the MIDI notes in conventional music notation that I can edit. I realize this might be a separate app that can accept the MIDI, so I'm looking for recommendations there too.
I don't need lots of extra power and features. Just something relatively straight forward that is stable and plays nice with AUM.
My main platform is AUM, on an iPad Air 3. I don't use drum machines. I don't have a sequencer now. I have lots of synths and effects, etc.
