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.

    does anyone know if it's possible to import a multi-channel midi clip to one pattern, with the channels preserved (multi filter mode)?
    right now when i import, it separates each midi channel into different patterns.
    thanks!

    Yes, it’s possible but there are a few steps involved so bear with me…

    1. import your multi-channel MIDI file into Atom2. Each channel of the MIDI file will be imported into a separate Pattern in the Patterns menu
    2. For each pattern in the list, you need to cut/paste the MIDI notes within so they get assigned to a specific MIDI channel. Here’s how..
      a. Select the desired pattern from the list.
      b. Select all notes (double-tap the select tool/icon)
      c. Cut notes to clipboard (see fig.1)
      d. Open the channel menu that has show/hide controls for MIDI channels 1-12 (see fig.2)
      e. Hide all layers the unhide the channel you want to paste your notes into. (see fig.3)
      f. Paste your notes from the clipboard
    3. Repeat step 3 for all imported patterns.
    4. Once complete everything should be the same as when you imported the MIDI… EXCEPT that each pattern will now contains MIDI notes on DIFFERENT MIDI channels.
    5. Finally, open the Patterns panel again and use the MERGE command to make a new pattern that combines all of the imported patterns, but preserving the MIDI channel assignments you made in step 2 (above). (see fig.4)

    Hope this makes sense - and sorry it’s a little more complicated. At least it works :)

    Congrats on the release! Is it possible to have the piano roll only show notes in scale? Like in LK and Ableton, fold note to scale feature.

    There is no folding visually on the UI keyboard itself, however there are visual guides under the scales tab, top right. In that tab you will also find Map to whites for folding notes in scale just to white keys, and Map to pads, for for folding notes in scale to the pads of a pad controller.

    Note here that scales in this tab are only working on MIDI input until you activate the pitch processor in the process pop out, bottom right, which will automagically open the scale tab too, that processor will then process notes on the grid.

    Folding notes visually on the UI keyboard is on the FR list, but can actually be achieved by a little bit of scripting, so maybe this will happen in the mean time anyway.

    Sorry to drag this up from so long ago, but I’m looking into folding to notes in atom to use it as a drum sequencer. When you say it can be done with scripting, did you ever see this happen?

    Hi Greg,

    All it would take is for someone to tweak the CSS stylesheet to do something like this...

    .row .not-in-scale {
    Display: none;
    }

    (Please note, the above is psuedocode, and the actual selectors will be named slightly differently. But in principle, this technique will work).

    Got it, thanks. I’ve just had a look at the example.css file and can see the relevant classes.

    However, I think this will only work for existing scales right? And there’s no way to add your own scales?

  • Eek. Good point.

    I can't remember if you can define your own scales. Possibly not.

    Sorry

    All good 😊 I bet there’s a css id or class for each individual note but they’re not in the example file. Is @blueveek still alive?
