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.
Sequencing and app combinations
Hi all, I have been trying out different permutations of sequencers/midi utility apps (for want of a better description) and I found this thread : https://forum.audiob.us/discussion/43783/crazy-but-happy-accident-with-cality-and-ionarics
Lots of great ideas in here. What @Poppadocrock says : "When i add different kinds of midi elements together to see what comes out. more often then not with some tweaking you can turn it into something beautiful" basically explains what I want to discuss.
I'm interested to hear people's thoughts on apps that complement each other. But specifically, apps that go before the sound, rather than after. That is to say, leaving aside FX and things that usually go after the sound creation , and focussing on those that go before it.
So for example, I like to open Zoa, or Riffer and then route it through Arpbud, to get some unexpected and, more often than not, interesting results. Autony and Cality, as mentioned in the other thread, are great for this kind of thing too.
I'm not particularly interested in syncopated music. I'm more interested in exploring washes of sound, texture, timbre....
Would love to hear folks' thoughts
