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.
Claim a free app / Make a pledge (15 available; 56 claimed)
This idea is a way for users with a little spare cash to essentially buy their favourite app/s multiple times by gifting additional copies to other users here on the forum. It may sound crazy, but by ‘overspending’ on your favourite apps, you are simultaneously helping support your favourite indie developer whilst also making a genuine act of kindness to another fellow iOS musician!
- Scroll down for some simple instructions.
- Users must have been registered on the forum at least 3 months before claiming an app.
- You can only claim apps pledged in the same country as you (Apple's rules).
- This system is built entirely on trust and goodwill.

How it works...
Make a pledge
You pick an app (or developer) you would like to support and then simply reply to this thread saying that you 'pledge X number of gift licences' for that app. You also need to indicate which appstore country you are in, as Apple only allows gifts in the same country.
- It generates additional sales for the developers we really want to support
- It allows any of us fortunate enough to have some spare cash to reinvest it back into the iOS music ecosystem (I call this 'overspending').
- It promotes a strong sense of community
Claim a gift
Anyone on the forum who has been registered for at least 3 months can claim one of those gift licenses simply by replying (always mention the user who pledged) - or via DM. No questions asked.
I want to claim a gift
- Anyone who has been registered on these forums for at least 3 months is entitled to claim a gift.
- Simply reply to this thread, mentioning the user who made the pledge, or send them a DM.
- The user who made the pledge will either ask you for an email address or send you a redeemable code via DM. All codes should be redeemed within 24 hours.
- you don’t need to be broke to accept a gift
- every gift accepted puts money in the pockets of our beloved developers.
After claiming your gift
- (optional) write a reply here in this thread - or DM - thanking the pledge maker
- Have fun. Enjoy the app. Write a nice review for it on the appstore.
I want to make a pledge
- Reply to this thread explaining you would like to add a pledge
- Give the name the app you are pledging, the number of copies available, and your appstore country (Apple only allow gifts within the same country). It may also be helpful to tag @tk32 so he can update the CURRENT PLEDGES list in the OP.
How to send a redeemable app code via DM
- Check the user has been registered on the forum for at least 3 months, and resides in the same country as you.
- Go to the app page on the appstore, tap the share button and select 'Gift app'
- Enter your own personal email address and complete the transaction.
- Copy the redeemable code received in your email and then DM it to the user here on ABF. (codes are only valid for 24hrs - if the code is not redeemed you will not be charged).
- Note - No personal email addresses need to be revealed or exchanged with this method.
