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.

DRAMBO 2.0 is LIVE!!!

  • Some people wouldnt bother telling of setups. So I think im alright ( mate )

    Drums though. 5 fac drum. Bass 808. Shaka. Slammer or ting. Fm. Beatsurfer for either breaks or drums. Volca drum sampling with mozaic storage. A word sampler and also dvs scratch deck sampler.

    Other ipad. Synths. Send to drum Drambo or send some to aum to beatcutter and back to drambo.

    Drambo automation.

    Aum for mixing.

    Can we load external audio as a track in Drambo?

    Never mind. Found it under utilities. Gunna have some fun with this! Can’t delete my comment though!

  • Anyone know how to access the preset browser for auv3s within Drambo? For example korg Electribe wave only allows preset browsing in the host, so in Drambo I’m stuck on the int preset and can’t change it.

    Yes, please.. will like to get Troublemaker’s presets in Drambo also..

    Thanks.

    Anyone using the excellent Klevgrand seq project (patchstorage) as an AU inside Drambo standalone? Seems like I could need some help with the midi.

    This project works out of the box when putting Drambo AU inside AUM, but I could not get it to work inside Drambo standalone. Tried putting a Drambo AU on the Main track and Ting on track 1, then fiddle with midi output settings for the track, but no luck. Also tried direct connection symbols (midi), still no sound. Not sure how this should be set up properly?

    Another issue; when having the "steps for all tracks" activated in top right corner, is it not possible to get all 12 tracks visible at the same time? Seems like Drambo kept wanting to increase cell height instead, when trying to maximize the window.

    Hi. This may be a case where the MIDI needs to come from outside Drambo. You would need to load an app like FreEWI or StreamByter stand-alone. Route the MIDI from Drambo to the virtual MIDI input port of the other app, and connect the Drambo track MIDI to the app's virtual MIDI output port.

  • Oh. I knew about that trick for recording midi AUv3 into clips, but didn't consider it would apply here, too. You may be right.

    The other option would be to make 12 layers, each having a Klevgrand seq for a particular note value, with a midi mixer + Ting at the end. But then you wouldn't get the nice steps overview for inserting your beats without having to resort to chord inputs etc.

    I’d like this feature, too....also ran into it with Electribe Wave

    Not as long as it took Drambo 1.0 to come out lol

  • What are formant in a nutshell? Oscillator that can produce human-like sounds? Not sure how to explain it.

  • @Montreal_Music said:

    Exactly.

  • @Montreal_Music said:

    Formants are overtones -- in speech, they often refer to overtones that give vowels their characteristics. In synths, they usually refer to filters or oscillators that capture these sorts of formants to achieve voice-like sounds.

    In some context they refer to resonant overtones (for example, those overtones that give the characteristics of a resonant body).

    Formant-based pitch-shifting may shift all the harmonics by the shifted amount but leave the resonances where they are -- which simulates what happens when we sing different pitches or different pitches are played on an instrument. As the string shortens the pitch goes up (as do all the harmonics) but some resonances at fixed pitches are amplified (if present in the vibrating string) because they are the result of the physical characteristics/size of the resonating body.

    Hopefully that made sense.

    BTW I just made a twin sampler rack providing 8 velocity layers, in case anyone's into creating custom instruments 😊

    Thanks. Trying it out you may notice it produces no sound out of the gate. Adding a mixer at the end of the rack fixed that.

    (When I tested I only added samples for the VL section, then played notes with low velocity)

    Oh, you're right! I was too fast to notice 😄
    Gonna fix it soon.

    Edit: Fixed in V1.1

    Indeed. That's pretty close being a part of an actual track!

    Project file possible, please!!??

    If I work something out with it I would post it here. (I'm just starting out).

    I'd like to discuss the current piano roll and see how people feel about it when using long patterns.

    @rs2000 I would be really grateful to have your opinion on that:

    I was working the other day on long patterns (8 to 16 bars) and the piano roll really fails to change length of multiple notes. I've reported in the past that one needs to select around the notes (and not in the middle of them) and also to zoom a lot and, well... despite these workaround, most of the time, notes move around where I'd like to simply change their length. Also selecting whole notes is not always desirable.

    I'm guessing most people test the piano roll with few bars/notes? It's a shame because it's really a new key feature of Drambo 2.0

    I think we need to be able to lock the notes modifications to one of these at a time:
    - horizontal
    - vertical (i.e. transpose)
    - note length.

    The complexity of coding this also seems reasonable to me, hoping I'm not wrong 😅

    Nanostudio 2 for instance does this in a very smart way: select notes and buttons appear on the bottom (yellow on my screenshot) and right side (green).
    Holding the first button and dragging horizontally slides notes accordingly. The second button has the same idea for note lengths.

    Of course another implementation (just locking values) would suit me well too 😁

    Thank you for your time!

    Some people hate that method. I think it's great and would love to see it in every iOS piano roll.

  • @jsmonzani
    Agreed. Note editing in the piano roll does need a few fixes.
    It's been reported already but I'm going to send a refresher 😊

  • NS2 has the best piano roll for touch screen, I’d love some features like that

    @wim

    Really agree with you both, I think NS2 has a very quick and precise workflow.

    Anyone else getting this small bug?

    Reported to developer.

  • Is it at this point somehow possible to latch a clip when wanting to p-lock multiple parameters instead of holding it down?

    Noob queston: what module do I need to play my oscillator here (C, C#, D, D#, E, F, etc.). Each keys of my midi controller gave me the same note.

    MIDI input module in miRack, and then connect its v/oct output to the v/oct input in Macro Oscillator

    You're sending MIDI to miRack. So, I think you need a miRack MIDI to CV converter, and send the CV to the osc.

    Bingo! Thank you.
