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.
AudioLayer - “Dolphin Disco Party” 🎉
Finally purchased AudioLayer! I spotted it on sale for half price sometime last week, and with all the praise I see it get around here, I figured I better go ahead and grab it.
First impressions: what.. the @#$&
(Scrambles for YouTube tutorials)
Second impression: Ah! You have to tap on the screen dummy...
Now, I think I get it...
(Track #1) So I loaded two samples into AudioLayer, the first one is a synth piece that was recorded from my Deepmind 12 a few months back while working with @linearlineman on a collaboration project.
The second sample is also another synth part from the DM12, record more recently.
I threw Drambo’s new Analog filter on the track and modulated it with a graphic modulator.
I like how you can load samples in AudioLayer and assign them to their own “zones”. I’m still learning how to do all of this, but I think I’ve got the basic concept down.
So I built a little groove around it in DSA. The girlfriend (my first YT subscriber!) says it sounds like a “Dolphin Disco Party” 😄
(Track #2) Drum sounds provided by AudioKit’s amazing 909. Using pretty much ANY drum app in Drambo standalone opens the doors for so many polyrhythms by using the drum app’s sequencer in conjunction with Drambo’s.
(Track #3) Skaka a round of shakers for everyone!
(Track #4) Composed a complimentary synth part to go along with the main sample(s) theme. The amazing and powerful DRC with the Brass/Jabbah (Scorpius) preset. I may have turned a couple knobs here...
I originally intended for this track to be sequenced by Atom2, but after I played the part, I realized that RECORD was off on the Atom 2 instance, but the P-lock was ON on the Drambo track, so Drambo’s sequencer picked it up and populated the grid, so I decided to leave it.
This track also has the new analog filter! Modulated graphically of course...
(Track #5) Bassline! Believe it or not, I simply used Drambo’s good ole native “Jon Bass” module. I wanted a thick, stabby sounding synth bass and I think this fit the bill perfectly!
(Track #6) What piece would be complete without a nice (and very simple!) SWAM Flugelhorn part on top?
