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.
Question for developers: Any significant audio / MIDI changes of late / iOS 15 ?
Hello fellow devs - hoping you can help.
Can anyone confirm that AFAIK, there have been no real significant changes to audio and MIDI "stuff" in the last few iOS updates?
Almost needless to say, I'm particularly interested in anything AudioUnit related.
I'm also interested in any improvements relating to Swift / audio / MIDI APIs integration.
And finally, anyone else get the strong feeling AVFoundation will be deprecated before too long?
Seemed like there was a big fanfare (at least by Apple's music app standards) about AVFoundation back around iOS 9, but now everything is so "AU or go home" nothing seems to have happened as far as I'm aware to bridge the gap between AUv3 development, and the AVFoundation take on AU graphs and what-not. Real shame as it's kinda close.
Maybe we'll see something new at the WW (emoji / social media app) Developer Conference...
And, in case anyone's wondering where I've been, I've been working on other / desktop projects for a while. And if anyone's wondering why that is, well...
I did have a whole load of stuff in development for new instruments for moodunits which I wanted to be a nice surprise for y'all, but...
Apple have decided to stop hosting any new IAP downloadable content so I've had to abandon that as doing my own d/l hosting is not commercially viable for an operation of my size. So yeah... thanks for that Apple, especially as getting IAP downloads working with moodunits was surprisingly painful
Just to be clear, Apple will continue to support existing downloads (who knows for how long...) but aren't accepting new content. That's my understanding anyway.
Anyway enough about me and hope someone can spare the time to chip-in, share their thoughts.
Finally, and more importantly, hope everyone is AOK!
