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.

    FM BROADCASTING!?!?!?

    oh, €2000 euro...

  • lol
    2k euro hahahahah
    such a good swedish joke :))))))

  • With a price to match...

    I always suspected the "OP" in OP-1 stood for "over-priced"

  • A price of $1999 is being bandied about the YouTubes. That might just be worth it, after the mixer fiasco…

    Yeah that's unfortunate

    to be fair it's only the price of a few pints of beer in sweden.

  • They are nuts.

  • I hope it’s waterproof.You wouldn’t want a summer storm surprising Hipster Adam in the park doing some video content with his 2000$ device.
    Actually, I hope it’s not waterproof…

  • £1,999 in the UK. Ouch. Did they... er... just not bother with exchange rates?

  • (Me a month ago)

    Okay, almost got the $1200 saved up to buy an OP-1. (I see the $1400 price tag.) Oh.

    (Now.)

    Oooo, a new OP-1! Okay, maybe if I shift a few more dollars around from savings into checking, I can- (I see the $2000 price tag), well fuck it. I'll just buy an iPad Pro to use Gadget in instead.

  • I wonder though, without Bon Iver on the scene and with so much competition, is there room for 'another' op-1? The original is a modern classic, I very much doubt this will be.

  • What??? New packinging?

    Shit up and take my money ;-)

    You can get a summit for that 😳

  • They lost me with that « field » BS.

  • I think it looks promising, some really good improvements on the original but the price is a stinger !!!
    I’m tempted to sell my original and trade up…

  • TE really know how to price label stuff 😅

    You could always sell a kidney on the black market to make up the difference?

  • This is fine. I feel like the OP-Z was their attempt to hit a “mid-premium” price point without compromising features or aesthetics, but they compromised on durability and people complained endlessly. You know who DOESN’T complain? People that bought one (or more) of the OB-4 fashion collaborations. Even the OP-1’s claim to fame has always been, “Yeah it’s expensive but look what it can do!”

    Now they’re fully leaning into it and it’s just fine. TE is most successful when they design status symbols and I fundamentally have no issues with it. Although for my money, “mid-premium” is about as far as I can justify going. Might consider selling my OP-Z before they update the design and kill used prices; set the money aside for the still-unannounced and un-rumoured Electribe 3.

  • Just sell your OP-1 and your TX-6 and you’re good. :)

    😂 Sure, and be on dialysis the rest of my life while playing with the OP-1 in the waiting room. 🤣

  • Good time to buy the OG I think (he says through clenched teeth).

  • So when does the $25 Behringer knockoff arrive?

  • Eye watering price. More than a MacBook Pro. They are bonkers.

  • Overpriced, hype train 💩.

  • Price history:
    The original OP-1 sold for $799 at Guitar Center when GC first started carrying TE products around 6 years ago. With the 20% off GC coupon (which no longer works with TE products), it cost $639.

  • This is just lazy. They could have come up with something new. Not unlike Roland with their recycled mini boxes.

  • A Mac Studio would be a better investment.

    That’s a good point. Relative value here seems way out of whack (at least, from my point of view).

    I’d like to hear some arguments in favor of this hardware from someone who wants to buy one.

  • This looks pretty sweet, addressed a lot of my issues with the first OP-1.
