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.

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

About those headphone adapters...

If you're like me and think Apple's Lightning an USB-C headphone adapters are flimsy with their skinny cord, I can confirm this works really well:

Paracord Cord Reinforcement


  • Useful thanks

  • Yeah, I got one of these USB-C adaptors from Apple a couple of days ago. I was pretty surprised be the quality of the output and that it does a good job of driving even my 250Ω headphones. But, the cable is the exact same crap that is on the Lightning cables that come with an iPhone. Every one of these I've had has frayed within a year or two. The design is bad and doomed to failure --- especially on the little short cable that comes with the headphone adaptor.

    I was going to go with duct tape to try and strengthen the cable, but this looks interesting. Thanks for the link!

  • It's a bit of a pain getting the inner part of the Paracord out, especially if some gets stuck in the middle. Advice: Use about an 8 inch piece, which results in a very long piece once the innards are removed, but it gives you some leeway if some gets stuck in the middle forcing you to make another cut.

    End result is pretty cool though:
