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.

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

Demo video of my audiobus 2 setup.

Hey gang, shot this quick video today and wanted to share. It's a really rough demo of how I'm planning to use audiobus 2 in my live rig.


  • OK, so that was... awesome. Super, super cool... this is EXACTLY the kind of stuff I'd like to be able to do, but wrapping my head around the various components and planning involved has been daunting. You really broke it down and made it seem straightforward though.

    That MIDI texture box thing is the bees knees... I love it!

    How much work was it to assign all the pads and knob routing? It seems like it would be a massive undertaking to reconfigure all that for a different setup or different apps than the ones you've chosen for this demo.

    Well done!

  • Also the Novation Launch Controller looks pretty awesome for Loopy, I love how the lights stay toggled on when the loop is playing. That would really help me because I get confused about what's what, hahaa...

    Thanks guys! It can be a bit confusing to set up all the configurations (plus I change stuff constantly). My girlfriend has even more midi mappings than I do.

    @jesse_ohio, the Launch Control is great for loopy, but the lights will not work that way unless you use midibridge to connect launch control to itself. I have a user preset for launch control where all the buttons are toggles. Also, if you notice, I only use the launch control to start the loop, then quneo actually stops them. I have it set up this way because if I were to hit the same pad again on the launch control (which I actually do on that last loop) the led would turn off even though there is a loop on that pad.

    Anywho, I can't believe how much fun I've had just today with audiobus 2. This thing is a beast. I just tested recording 9 different loops from loopy into 9 tracks of cubasis and it worked! The future is amazing.

  • Just great! :) Shared this via our social stuff channels!
