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.
Youtube Music Premium quandary
How does it work? Would I still be able to listen to any currently posted musical content on YouTube ad free? Or would I be restricted to only legitimately licensed stuff, ala Apple music and Spotify?
[EDITED 3 weeks later]
My free trial is up on the 21st. I really like YT music a lot cause it has certain releases not available on Apple or Spotify, even if said releases are from the same artists found on Apple, etc.
My deal breaker for YT is that I recently upgraded my phone and made the switch from Android to iOS. It seemed like a logical move since I’ve been making music on iPad for the last 6 years.
The problem lay within the inability to EQ the YT output. On android I had a third party EQ that affected the whole system. Apple doesn’t seem to allow developers this access. Even a recent update to YT music added an EQ, but only to Android users.
Without an EQ I seriously cannot listen to music. I work in manufacturing. It’s a noisy environment which is why I spent decent coin on the Audio Technica ath cks5tw in ears. The problem is that they are too bass heavy, believe it or not. While most folks use EQ to boost the bass in their buds, I need the opposite, especially when listening to Jungle tracks.
I can’t seem to find a solution that’ll allow me to keep YT music. The better 3rd party iOS EQ apps will EQ files in Dropbox or Document and sometimes Spotify. Or they have their own file player and you need to import the music files. But whatever songs I download from YT only seem to be accessible from within the app.
Unbelievable what a hack everything seems to be, if there even is a hack available. This technology isn’t setting me free. At this point velcrowing a portable CD case around my waist and carrying a CD player containing burnt files in my pocket with a 6 ft. long headphone wire sound more convenient.
