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.
There are many tools to create visuals from music, but are there tools that create music from visuals?
What i like to see:
An app or AU where you can load a video. Now you can place markers in the video window. Those are trigger points to set an action. Every pixel on a video screen contains data, like the RGB value.
I think you can do a lot with the data, because it has a set of 3 values. For example, you can convert the values into MIDI-data.
When a clip is playing, every video pixel is constantly changing value. that would result in a constant MIDI-data stream on every trigger point. Solution: Set a threshold to a data value.
Also nice: You can set an LFO to each trigger point (x/y value), so your trigger points move on the screen.
This would be a cool MIDI-sequencer, and very experimental...
