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.
Latency between iPad an Mac, with iConnect, iDAM etc
How do you all handle the latency between the iPad and a Mac, when connected via iDAM or an iConnect device? I'm using an iConnectMIDI2+ to send audio out from Ableton, using AUM and various AUs as send effects.
The problem is round-trip latency. I'm getting quite a bit. Part of this is down to having to use an aggregate audio device. The iCM2 has only 2+2 channels at 24 bit, so I need to use it in aggregate with another audio interface to hear anything through my speakers.
It actually seems better to send the audio out of my regular interface's analog outs, round-trip it through an Eventide H9, and then bring it back in though another analog channel. There's almost no latency this way.
Is there a trick I'm missing?
