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.
OT: My new book, Be The Artist You Want To Be, on Kindle
My new book, Be The Artist You Want To Be, has just been released on Kindle. Why announce this here? Well I thought it might be useful for some of you, because one of the main themes it deals with is how to find the time to make art when you have a busy life (and why you should!).
Like many of you, my life is insanely busy, I work freelance, and run a business, I have a family to support (a wife and two kids), not to mention the dog that needs walking every day. In among all this I have managed to run the Song Of The Month club every month since the start of 2015, writing more than 70 songs along the way, and releasing an album every year for the last three years. On top of that I’ve also been writing and drawing a comic book over the course of the last year, drawing for an hour or so in the evenings.
It’s a lot to fit in, but the upshot of doing this is that it’s very fulfilling to be able to (slowly) achieve my creative goals while still running my business and spending time with my family. I worked a few important things out along the way: mainly how to tap into my natural curiosity and intrinsic motivation in order to get things done, and also how to patiently use the passing of time to create ambitious things, things that I would not have bothered doing in the past (because I would have told myself I didn’t have the time to do them).
So if this sounds like it might be of interest, consider reading the free sample on Amazon in case it turns out to be helpful. The intro price for the book is only $2.99 so it’s not going to break the bank
For those who prefer good old-fashioned paper books, the paperback will be released as soon as I’ve managed to finish the layout for it.
Finally, if anyone does buy it, please leave an honest review. As you will see if you click the link above, my only review so far is from someone complaining that they can't download the book to their Kindle, which sadly I can't do much about. Now I know how the devs feel when they get one-star reviews on the App Store 🤷♂️
The book is available worldwide BTW, not just on Amazon US.
