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.
Since I know the answer to most questions can often result in "use Drambo" I have an issue within my iOS setup which I suspect Drambo might be able to solve.
I've built a dub rig within AUM using a Launchcontrol XL. It works really nicely, except that I can only really dub one tune at a time and I'd like to be able load up a wealth of samples and cycle through them.
Here's my use case:
I have a series of channels within AUM which correspond to different track elements.
Channel 1 is drums
Channel 2 is bass
Channel 3 is mids
Channel 4 is vocals/one shots
At present I can use the AUM file player to launch the loops in each channel, or I can use something like EG Pulse to play sequences (currently I'm doing the latter). EG Pulse is great but only has a very limited number of sample slots.
What I'd ideally like is something akin to Launchpad so that I can trigger loops using a controller (i.e. a Launchpad mini) and have them continue to loop until I select another one in the same bank, which will then replace it.
If the Launchpad app had multiple outputs I'd just use that within AUM (also it's only IAA which will become an issue sooner or later). It obviously doesn't and therefore I'm looking for other solutions.
People who know Drambo well: can it do this? If so, how could I discover the way to achieve it? I've done the tutorials and whilst I'm pleased with my synth/sequencer etc and enjoyed making them, doing so didn't get me closer to my goal.
Thanks in advance for anyone able to offer any assistance (and much respect to the awesome things I've already seen within Drambo which gave me the belief that this may be achievable)
