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.
A2M real-time Audio to MIDI by Nilson Ltd. (Free, but with iap)
A2M detects the pitch of the audio and converts it into the corresponding MIDI notes in real time.
Thanks to this, you can play, e.g., the guitar, saxophone, or even sing, and simultaneously trigger sounds in virtual instruments (not only AU). These acoustic (or electric) instruments, or your voice, act as a MIDI controller.
A2M comes as an AU v3 plugin and as a standalone application (which is the AU host for this one plugin).
The A2M is quite an unusual Audio Unit – it is both an audio effect and a MIDI effect. Due to its characteristics, it is something in between. On the one hand, it analyzes the input sound, just like any audio effect. On the other hand, it generates output MIDI events, just like any MIDI effect.
AU Hosts compatible with A2M Audio Unit:
A2M does not work as an AU plugin in GarageBand.
The standalone version works with all MIDI-compatible applications, including GarageBand.
The app sends MIDI events via the virtual MIDI port. The list of active and inactive MIDI ports is available in the application settings in the MIDI Settings → Outputs section.
▷ Audio input buffer size
The smaller the buffer, the higher the CPU load and the lower the latency.
A buffer less than 512 should only be set if you have a strong processor.
For A2M standalone applications, the buffer size is available in the application settings under Audio Settings → Buffer Size
▷ Pitch recognition method
A2M offers two popular algorithms
• Based on autocorrelation, the beat bars proprietary method
• FFT (with parabolic interpolation)
▷ Gate Threshold and Input Gain
A2M works best when it only recognizes sounds at an appropriate volume level.
In order to eliminate unnecessary background noises, select the appropriate parameters.
▷ Latency / Accuracy
2 dashes (default) – the best compromise between accuracy and latency.
The higher the accuracy, the more of the CPU’s capacity is used and the longer the latency (as opposed to the audio buffer size settings).
▷ Velocity Gain
It allows you to select the appropriate volume of the virtual instrument itself.
Known limitations in the current version:
• No polyphony
• No pitch bending
• iOS 14 or later
