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.

  • Ahh! The Igor whisperer!

  • Excellent! Huge help and impressive that you tackled most of the app in just over a half hour.

    I have a couple of simple questions though. On the inputs, there's File, and 4 channels. There's that last one at the top that's labled I1. What input does that represent?

    On the template page, the first entry on the left is how many inputs. My understanding is that there is a total possible of 8 inputs, but you can set it for 9. What are you getting if you have it set at 9?

    I1 = the input source assigned to input channel 1. You’ll see settings for I1-I8 on the Trigger and Sequencer pages.

    According to the manual, the input sources template position has special values for 0 and 9. 0 sets the first input to C1 (the first external input) and the others to I1. 9 sets inputs 1-4 and 5-8 to C1-C4.

  • Thanks for your service @MarkH ;)

  • Nice one @MarkH I know what I'll be watching over my morning coffee ☕

    Hungover.

  • Thanks @MarkH for the introspective walkthrough - yours are the best for truly understanding and always worth viewing!

  • Thanks @MarkH - it's useful to have another angle on this app. A bit like Drambo or Wotja, an understanding will have to be pieced together in stages, and the Main screen was a bit of a mystery.

  • Good stuff Mark, always appreciate your calm and thorough style

    Nah. I got the answer to my question from the manual so I withdrew it.

    Thanks for the time taken with this video @MarkH ! Much appreciated :)

    Thanks. I didn't respond to your other questions because someone (or someones) beat me to it!

    It took a bit to be enlightened that understanding this app is in two parts: 1) The mechanics of setting it up, and 2) How to make music with it. When I first purchase an app, I'm usually trying to get an assurance that I haven't wasted money. As @gavinski has pointed out in other pages, you're not going to get that warm fuzzy with BeatCutter right away. It's a complicated app with a less than stellar interface that does some remarkable things, and you have to get past all that before you learn it's an excellent purchase. @markh has provided so much insight into the mechanics with this video. Even the manual is starting to make sense now.

    The second part, making music, has nothing to do with Igor's app. The joy/burden of making music falls on us. A big thx to @markh!

    Let me uncrack this beast, please :)

  • Thank you for the tutorial! I'd love to take the plunge!

    I have three codes to give away. The first three comments asking can have them.

    Did I miss them!?

  • I'd take one too but I count three before me :)

  • Looks like I just missed it! I'll be procrastinating the trippy explorations to a later date...

    Tbh I’m plenty covered with Drambo these days... happy to pass ‘my’ code
    Please, share some mangling on your vacuum tube thing in the future :)

    Nice one, I'm just back channeling stuff to rs2000 for some interesting stuff he's planning to make from them...

    Indeed, the matrix is key and it really took me a while to understand. I didn't understand it well until a few days ago. Once you understand it, after a few rereadings the manual becomes clear enough. It's just so dense, and with no pics, quite a slog to get through. But in its own way it is actually clear. Let's just say, its clear when u already understand the app, not before 😂

    Yes, this!

    You are an absolute gem @MarkH
