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.

    Yeah - it starts off slow but really kicks off halfway through. Bjork's voice - incredible!

    Yes. I'm sure Jackson will do a good job with the film.

    So young:

    In March 1957, a 16-year-old lad from Liverpool formed his own skiffle group. John Lennon originally christened the group the “Blackjacks” but quickly changed the name to “The Quarrymen.” They played at birthday parties, and on a stationary flatbed truck at outdoor parties. Lennon soon recruited the 15-year-old Paul McCartney to join as rhythm guitarist, and the 14-year-old George Harrison became the lead guitarist.

    Odd pairing, yet so good. What’s Björk playing?

  • Carl Sagan Talks About Star Wars:

    "Star Wars starts out saying it’s on some other galaxy and then you see there’s people. Starting in scene one there’s a problem, because human beings are the result of a unique evolutionary sequence based upon so many individually unlikely random events on the Earth."

    I don’t get any sound out if it.

  • This is pretty cool.

    I suppose if I play a guitar solo over the top of it, then it’s no longer “ambient”?

    You broke it! :-)

    I just went to the link in Firefox, Chrome & Opera and it worked ok, but it didn't work in Safari (all browsers were running on a Mac).

    There is an "enable sound" button at the top right side of the screen. Safari wasn't displaying this button properly.

    Maybe try another browser or a browser on another device.

  • Not an underrated guitarplayer, but a criminally unrated guitarplayer.

    Wow that’s an amazing little machine. I had no idea it existed. It makes a lot of today’s grooveboxes feel not so innovative after all.

  • Blast from the past.

    Some guy called "Doug" doing a demo of something called "Audiobus". No idea where either are now.

  • You think there is no need for you to ever hear this song ever again in your life for any reason, and then you stumble across a live version with Skunk Baxter sitting in on congas and Clydie King singing backup, and:

    The last one Yamaha made (QY100) even had a mono mic/guitar input with guitar amp and mic preamp sims. Add the 16-track song MIDI sequencer and 8-track pattern MIDI sequencer (24-parts multitimbral) with hundreds of XG/GM2 sounds, along with thousands of built-in phrases - it's a bargain.

    They're selling for ~$150 on Ebay. Tiny too, about the same size as an MC-101. Limited synth editing like the MC-101 (it's a rompler with dated sounds, though the bread-n-butter and orchestral tones are decent - they compliment the MC-101's massive synth library very nicely).

    A tiny rig in a hardcase with a QY100, MC-101, TR-6S, and maybe a small analog/hybrid synth like the Dreadbox Typhon, MicroMonsta, or Töörö, along with a little mixer with USB audio, and an iPad would be loads of fun.
