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.
Sounds like a cool option, though, and not hard to implement. Might need a feedback control to keep it from getting too loud during overdubbing.
Taking further this idea, would be possible to have a render function that bounce in place as a new recording? So, the added overdubs can have different stretch parameters.
I imagine this would have a limit considering the resulting length of the stretched audio though.
Yeah, now that I have a website (and not just a Dropbox link) I can start at least timestamping new builds with the same version number. Pretty soon I’ll actually start increasing the version number on releases, though!
Yes @sonosaurus , I downloaded and installed 'Sonobus for Windows 7 and higher' and the exe runs fine and the VST (in Reaper) idem. No problems at all. But when I run the PaulXStretch exe, I get no errormessage, but the program just doesn't show up on screen (nothing happens...), and the VST is not visible in Reaper's plugin-list...
Here's a first attempt at using the PaulXStretch app.
This is a 3x stretch with Num harmonics set to12, Harmonics base freq set to 128.0, and Harmonics bandwidth set to 25.00.
I was trying for the overtones that you hear with David Hykes & the Harmonic Choir.
Ok thanks, I should be able to figure it out then…
@sonosaurus I assume lack of monitoring audio while recording in auv3 is easily fixable? Looking forward to that working properly, pretty essential feature 👍
Yeah, should be an easy one!
Extremely. Please add a tip option or something similar so you at least get some beers and maybe even a dinner for all your effort.
I don't plan on adding any IAP tip option, but if you feel so inclined there is a donate link on the website.... thanks!
This pairs really nicely with the cross fader in Drambo. All the sliders can be mapped and morphed between scenes. It’s great fun, I’ve lost a big chunk of my evening
New update available for Mac/Win/iOS, download from https://sonosaurus.com/paulxstretch
v1.5.1 mac/win, shows up as 1.5.0(107) for iOS
(be sure to uninstall first, you may need to manually remove the C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\PaulXStretch.vst3 first)
Fast work! Thanks a lot 🙏
This is awesome....
Gonna dig out my Kylie singles for some audio gymnastics!!!
Great UI improvements and audio pass through recording! 👍 And as usual,I never came on a single bug 😅 (which makes me not useful as a beta tester)
@sonosaurus , I installed version 1.5.1, but it didn't solve the Windows 7 problems (as mentioned above)... It's not a big problem for me personally, because I have the 'old' PaulStrech-VST on my PC (and now PaulXStretch on iPad!); maybe just change the head for the Windows installer-download on https://sonosaurus.com/paulxstretch/ in 'Windows 10 and above' (if that works?).
I haven’t given up yet, I’ll direct message you if I have further things to try.
wow, great update!!!
It'd be awesome being able to reverse the captured buffer, just thinking outloud 😂
Actually, I think they are not going anywhere at all accessible after the fact (unless you happened to save the session while you had one in use). The load audio... feature won't browse to where they actually are right now.
I can access those recordings in the Files app in a folder called Captures. Double tapping on them opens them in PXS. And the Load Audio feature opens the Files app and you can navigate to that folder to import previous recordings. This works standalone and AU
When doing a render it would be nice if you could create a folder for that particular session ie: if I’ve recorded some speech, create a folder called Speech that I could then save my renders to instead of the just going to the root PXS folder.
This is an amazing app! Sort of a black hole for sound! Very inspiring! Thanks @sonosaurus!
That Captures folder is only within the standalone version and recordings done there. When you use the plugin version and capture within that, those go into a hidden place that there is no mechanism to access.
I’ll consider some additional folder destination ability for the render dialog.
Gotcha - I didn't try capturing into AU and looking for the captured audio. I tend to use import more than capture anyway. Thanks
Absolutely gorgeous. Love it, I'm properly zoned out
So... if these recordings within the AUv3 app are stored in an inaccessible hidden place... are we filling up our device storage with these test recordings with no way to delete them? Or, do they evaporate after the session is closed?
Beta is full. Possible to add more spots? Thanks!
Oops! Try it now.
No problem, got it. Thanks!
They are using up space right now, unless you turn off the save capture to disk option. I’ll add a way to manage them and access them in the future.
