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.
Novation Launchkey MK3 - How do I use the knobs?
So I am mostly a guitarist, but I like my little novation keyboard with my iPad. Below is a song on my channel that shows how I’m using it with the Groovebox app.
But, only the keys and the square lighted buttons do anything outside Groovebox, and maybe the pitch bend. But in other synth apps and even Garageband, I can’t control volume, Filter, arpeggio, and even the little modulation slider on the left just to add expression to virtual instruments.
(Remember, I’m totally using this with an iPad, not my Mac or ableton live.)
Unless I am using novation apps, is it basically only just a plain old midi keyboard and not really anything else? There are just so many knobs that I spin that do nothing unless I am using Groovebox. At the very least, I just wish I could control volume and modulation.
Thanks for any help!
