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.
Question about plugging in a synth to the iPad...
How do you guys go about it?
I just got a Mininova, and am worried I am doing something wrong. The iPad does not seem to recognize a device is plugged in when using only usb (unlike my launchkey, for instance). So I’m connecting the right audio out to an irig hd2.
My problem is the audio quality seems to be significantly degraded when compared to hearing the synth straight into my headphones. Not only does it distort at high volumes or low frequencies (probably due to the sensitive gain dial on the irig more than anything) but it just sounds worse in general.
I’m going about connecting it the wrong way?
The output needs to come from both the left and the right to get full sound ? (my audio monitor and the ear test indicate it comes out in stereo either way, so I hope this isn’t the case)
