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.
What’s your Loopy foot pedal setup and workflow?
I know there’s a dozen threads on midi foot pedals, but “I still haven’t found what I’m looking foooor 🎶🤦🏻“.
I’d like to know about how you wise people are using pedals to control Loopy.
I can’t decide if to go for a comfortable and easygoing setup with a Bluetooth device like the Blueboard that seems very popular, or go for the “look ma I can do it all” with a ton of pedals (fcb010, line6 shortboard mk2, etc).
It basically comes down to… How many pedals do you use?. What for?.
- do you map each clip to a pedal or do you select clip with touch and then just step to record?.
- Do you map monitoring and/or input switching with pedals?
- how do you go about recording different colors and a whole song?.
I currently use loopy to do songs but I don’t have a very fast setup. I envy guys like @supadom that have a super agile setup where you can improvise and do a song in real time. So I strive to move in that direction. I record a lot of guitars, bass, cgb so I definitely need a midi pedal, having to let go of the guitar to touch the iPad is stressful… But I don’t want an extra cable and 16 pedals if a nice little 4 pedal Bluetooth pedal is enough.
My starting point would be something like this:
I’d have amp sims and different fx on the colors… amp sim for bass, amp sim for guitar 1, amp sim for guitar 2, and so on… so I’d like to monitor what I’m going to record. Then arm the right Clío. Then record. And so on…
I’d love to hear how you loopy geeks are doing it!
