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.
In a Locrian mode… apparently?: A White Chair In A Yellow Room
So I was watching a music theory guy on YouTube and he was saying how almost no-one ever uses the Locrian scale. Since a) I know nothing at all about why that might be so, knowing no music theory whatsoever, (watching YouTube hasn’t helped) and b) liking a challenge, I thought I’d give it a go.
Octachron and Zoa on sequencing duties, my current fave Lo-Fi Tape on wonky brass, BLEASS Sidekick on drums, Bass 808 on, well, bass, a bit of Shockwave, mutated whale song samples and SoundSaw on atmospheres, plus the usual shedload of reverbs.
Just to make it a bit more difficult, I decided to make it my second Talker based ‘story’ piece. Luckily (?) I had an unnerving recent nightmare to base it on. Trying to capture that thing in dreams where the intensity of a dream emotion (in this case, panty-wetting terror) can be all out of whack with the apparently objective ‘reality’ within the dream. As ever, interested to see what people think?
