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.
Best 49 key midi controller?
So over the course of the pandemic I’ve been slowly moving my workflow to entirely ITB with an iPad and MacBook. So as such I’m now looking for a quality midi controller that has: 4 octaves (not enough desk space for more than that), 16 pads, assignable knobs, and decent keys. Right now the Keylab MkII is the top contender, especially with the software bundle that comes with it, but I’m open to any recommendations. $400-$500 is about the max I’m wanting to spend.
I’m finally getting over the hardware obsession and realizing I simply just work best and have the most fun when I’m completely ITB so I’m making the move.
