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.
You're not another @anickt are you, by any chance? Arguing with yourself? A Nick T vs NKT! You heard it here first peeps.
This would be amusing if there wasn't a real person on the other end of your 'creative words'. Perhaps you could throw a sound pack towards the dev by way of apology?
2 secs with the free version was enough to convince me to long press on the icon.
@AntoninCharvat it would be cool if the mutes were persistent after hitting random. Or the option to keep them in place.
That's a good idea. The issue is just that there are not always the same instruments used in each generated track, so it might be confusing.. But I'll definitely think this through, thanks!
Current beta with WAV stem rendering as well as loops looking good...@antonincharvat
Definitely making some forward moves.
Yes, but i think it will be in one file, so you would have to manually separate the parts, at least I think. They’re might be a way to do it directly that I haven’t discovered yet, since Atom 2 is so much deeper the Atom 1 I’m still learning all the new features. A workaround I usually use is to send the midi to Xequence 2, which automatically stems out each part, then either use X2 to trigger everything or then record that midi into separate instances of Atom 2, and then remove X2.
Thanks! Currently I working on the seamless loop export, stay tuned!
Oh sorry, I missed this question.. however I have no idea what do you mean "all in the same instance". I have never worked with Atom so I'm not familiar with the interface. Could you describe the issue using some regular audio editor, e.g. Audacity? (personally I'm more PC musician, than iOS one)
@AntoninCharvat When using auv3 apps in a host you can have many instances of the same app open at the same time. You could have 10 synthmaster ones, or 5 Atom 2’s open in any one session. you can use an AU app one time or open up as many individual versions of that AU app, that your device can handle. So each instance is one Au app, opened up one time, in any host.
Atom 2 is an Au piano roll and sequencer that is able to import midi. I’m not sure if when you import a midi file in Atom 2 it will split it up into each individual instrument like Xequence 2 does, or it will just import one midi file with all of the tracks in one midi file… I have to check the manual, and/or give it a try. You can use multiple channels and have several different apps playing different midi from 1 instance of Atom 2, but I’m not sure if the import function allows for each individual midi track to be stemmed out in some way… maybe @blueveek can help us….?
You can do this, @poppadocrock. Basically, you use Atom 2 as a clip launcher within AUM, similar to how clips work in Ableton. Right now, you have to import it into, say, 5 separate instances of A2, each track's midi in its own instance. So when you open the midi file from Beatly Pro in A2, you have 5 boxes down the right hand side of A2's interface that each have a midi track in them. Close 4 and keep 1 and so on until you have all 5 open in their own instances of A2, within AUM. And then awaaaaay you go!
Most fun I've had with midi in a while. Really like this app.
Thank you 🙏
Just ran into a first world problem.
I have saved almost 100 great patterns.
Is there a way to batch export multiple midi or audio loops?
I will add this to my TODO list. Nice idea!
Holy Schnikeys! Thank you for this.
I just finished first version of audio rendering, including seamless loops. For those of you who joined the TestFlight, you can go ahead and try it! The rest of you is kindly welcome to join the TestFlight anytime, just send me your Apple ID!
Awesome @AntoninCharvat Thanks
just wanted to let you know that audio rendering, including stems and loops, has been implemented in Beatly Pro v. 1.2 and is now (or very soon) available on the AppStore!
Thank you all.
Seamless loops export!!!
Thank you 🙏
This changes the meaning of “beats per minute”.
With this app you can create many usable beats every minute.
Landscape orientation, please! And why are beats exporting in .json format? I don’t even know what that is......no MIDI?
It had this before the latest update.
@jolico Guess somehow I missed it! After trying Beatly Pro, I must say I am much more impressed with this app.
I'm sorry for removing the landscape in last version (1.2). The thing is I am working on some new UI elements which simply do not fit right on the screen in landscape mode.
I will re-evaluate my options in this however. I actually did not expect someone might prefer landscape over portrait
JSON is only for importing to Beatly Pro, when you e.g. create some beat in free version and then you purchase Pro and want to tweak it or just want to share it with a friend to collab. It's just a format I use internally. MIDI export is possible too, but not for importing.
I can live without landscape mode, but it was convenient to have both options.
I really like this app but please, please keep landscape in mind. I can't be the only one who uses landscape almost exclusively on an iPad, especially when making music. I guess you are thinking about iPhones when you're considering UI changes. The way it is now is really inconvenient for iPad users imo.
I only use landscape
I will bring it back in next update, promised
Thanks for feedback!
