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.
A Library of Works … or In-the-Moment Jamming?
Are you steadily building a library of completed tracks (or have that intent)? Or do you prefer to just jam away without recording, living purely in and for the moment?
I’ve always been inclined to the former but lack of both time and finishing power mean I seldom cross the line, which is frankly depressing. Consequently I’m considering saying to hell with that and just enjoying jamming away without the burden of needing to create a finished article. Ever. If I can convince myself.
I guess the question is skewed toward certain musical types/genres but curious how you guys approach music-making in this sense; music for the record or music in the moment?
