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.
Zoom R8, R16, etc. Use iPad fx
I'd like to incorporate something like the Zoom R8 or R16 to my setup. Use the iPad as a sound source but try recording in a dawless setup, using the R8 (r16 or whatever) as a multitrack.
Besides drums machines, synth... if like to process guitars, vocals, etc with auv3 effects. I'm wondering how it could be done. When used as audio interface the r8 has 2 ins 2 outs, the r16 has 16 ins but only 2 outs... Is there a way to route the output of a track in the R8 to the iPad, process with fx and back into another track?.
To recapitulate... An example
- Record a dry guitar on a track in the r8 (or r16 or whatever)
- send that track to the iPad, (audio interface mode). Process with Amp sim, compression...
- track with printed fx back to the r8
I'm afraid I can't think of a way to do this with only 2 outs... I'm guessing the iPad comes out of the master... Can you record the master to another track?. While in interface mode?
I hope it makes sense... I can't find a good setup for what I envision.
I'm guessing the zoom livetrack, with more outs might do it, but I hear the routing is not as flexible... And way more expensive.
