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.
Oh yes same here
It is pretty great on iPad.
Heh... I don't know anything about this product and doesn't appear to be something I'd be interested in (not a musician) but it does seem like your game gets changed on the regular yo.
Same. I’m guessing we all got on too late. Maybe we’ll get first consideration if they open up the beta to a wider amount of users before the final release.
They may not be compelled to use this. Just throwing it out there.
That Melody Sauce thing looks useful. I suck at melodies.
I can’t understand why these apps exists.
I got Scaler on desktop recently and I have to say I have not really bonded with it yet though admittedly haven’t spent a lot of time with it. I think this is mostly because I already play keys a fair amount and have a pretty thorough knowledge of music theory and how to apply it so hunting and pecking through the suggested chords is boring and takes me out of the moment when I’m trying to write music. I know there are a lot of other things the app can do but I’m just not that inspired enough by what it does to learn the ins and outs of the GUI to get there. It might be a game changer for a lot of people (that don’t know harmony) but I’m not one of them.
Who here would rather see Cthulhu for iOS?
I’ve been demoing the desktop version and am finding it a useful tool. I use it as more of an interactive reference to help me get out what’s in my head rather than as an auto completer.
I’ve recently bought the desktop version - I am not accomplished in music theory but have to say the software is very developed and has honestly gave me an understanding of theory far more than any other source (I’ve also used captain plug ins). Both have their place and both would have a place in iOS. I think having it on an iPad would be great - I know I would use it to develop a foundation for creating progressions and arrangements for projects while I travel or away from my studio.
—- I hope this becomes a reality - it would be very welcome.
I would love to see Cthulhu on iOS!
Just popping in here after this post, don’t get me wrong… I love Scaler on the desktop, and I think it is a really thoughtfully designed app. The developers are constantly working on it. I often use it for constructing chord progressions that drive other VST is. It’s easy to work with nice “clean “ chords. I often have sets in ableton that have Cthulhu on one track, and Scaler on another.
Also, a quick reminder that ChordPolyPad, and StepPolyArp are fantastic approaches to building chord progressions and arpeggio/sequencing on iOS. I’ll soft plug my EDM chord pack for ChordPolyPad. It’s googlable.
@johnfromberkeley : Cthulhu for IOS? Definitely! Oh - you mean the music software… yeah, that too, I suppose…
Don't let the UI be a barrier to entry. Scaler is used my many world famous high end composers and producers. It's designed to work for those beginning their journey and those whom are more accomplished. Check through some videos in this playlist and look at some of the more specific ones like the modulation video:
Scaler iPad OS is mighty fun to use and the finishing touches are really adding a nice layer of polish. Sure there will be progression as more users join the community and feedback beyond release but playing on a mobile device in a different environment is a pleasure. Using multiple instances in sync with other audiobus compatible apps is great and just using it to control a bunch of analogue synths wirelessly is a genuine novelty. The audio / midi in and out versatility is - in my humble opinion - game changing!
@davide is it auv3?
I sacked off the beta testing for this so one of you might get an invite if they're doing one in one out... Just could find a use for it as I don't do much melodic stuff..
The beta works smoothly
Just to say
I am on the beta
They haven’t done any updates
It seems perfect to me
Had no crashes etc
And I haven’t seen many bug reports
Can’t wait for it to be live, I have my money ready
I'd buy this twice if I could.
I pulled the trigger on the desktop version. Currently on sale FYI.
Much of my writing has been riff based. Writing chord progressions has been cumbersome. Every time I’ve sat down with Scaler I walk away with a better, more cohesive song. With some other chord tools I’ve found it cumbersome to pull chords from related scales. Scaler makes this and similar things easy. Looking forward to playing with it on iOS.
Nice Tutorial on the Suggester feature..
Must be getting close now? Itching to play with this on the iPad after the joy it has brought me on desktop.
I’m looking forward to it too. Any indication?
Wish I could’ve got on the beta to try this. Guess I’ll have to wait..
Since the first beta came out it’s stalled so I think they hoping to fix everything in a Oner.
Still itching to find out just how gamechangier this is.
