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.
Multi Track Studio (MTS) on Mac supports iPad auv3’s and AU midi fx. (Atom 2 piano roll) and many others work in MTS (mac)
Same here, I was eager to use Zeeon in Logic but the AU can't be validated
Also, in standalone mode, i can't seem to be able to restore the purchase of the synthwave preset pack I bought on the iOS version.
EDIT: it works in Logic now after the latest update
Ah. Didn't realize others had discovered this beforehand. Same issue with mouse tracking being off and (in my case) Zeeon does not work as an AU in macOS GarageBand. So it's not just a Logic Pro issue.
Why might some apps not be showing up in my "iPhone and iPad Apps" listing in the mac App Store? I know I have the right account signed in. I searched for Zeeon, which I own, but it only appears as a purchase option on desktop. Ideas?
If you bought it on iOS, you can download it to desktop. I don't know what happens when you buy it on desktop first... presumably it would be available on both macOS and iOS for download since Beep Street doesn't sell it as two distinctly different versions of the software.
Yeah, there seem to be a few problems with Zeeon. I also had to „buy“ it again, but I didn’t get charged in the end. Unfortunately, the AUv3 isn’t entirely stable, I get a white screen from time to time. This has also caused a working instance to crash while I tried to load a second instance.
Do Bram Bos AUv3 apps work in Ableton?
That’s exciting, on the post he says all his apps, the ‘scapers would be ace if that’s what he means, but LoopField will be great anyway
Apparently just the au ones from what he said in reply to me on insta…
No sound from Drambo standalone on my Mac mini.
Spatializer also works on M1.
Given the current state of AUv3 support in mac OS apps, we're still very much looking to get more feedback from pro desktop users, especially before greenlighting the full M1 + intel release in the app store.
If anyone is willing to take the plugin for a spin and could provide feedback, especially relating to how host limitations for AUv3's impact their workflows (and their personal views towards how any such shortcoming could impact the plugin's/vendor's perception - especially for users who are accustomed to AUv2's only), we would very highly appreciate it. Please message us for an invite (Monterey required for TestFlight).
How is Moog Model D supposed to be run in a DAW like Live or in any other way on macOS? Was this possible previously somehow? Anyone succeeded? Korg doesn't even list Model D as a product at the Korg site. That's sad as they giving it away in 2020 created great good will for them, I do think.
You cant get Model D anymore for mac, only Animoog Z and Model 15 from Moog. Also Eventide plugins and many others are no longer available for mac. Id rather take Model D than Model 15, but Model 15 is a good substitute for D
Because Moog hasn’t yet offered Model D on macOS, I went ahead and bought Miniverse by Cherry Audio. It lacks the built in effects the Model D has on iOS, but it’s a terrific emulation and well worth the $39.00 price.
Surely this discussion is not about software for Mac, but rather about running iOS software on M1/M2 Macs, no?
See OP post:
Did you perhaps mean that at one point Korg offered wrappers like how they do with Model 15?
I was talking about that you cannot get iOS Model D on M1 mac anymore. Mac only Model D does not exist either.
ok so here is an updated list -auv3 plugins I've been using without any issues in Live11.2b7-
Uwyn - Midi Tape Recorder
Jorge Costa - VisualSwift
Moog - AnimoogZ + Model15
BeepStreet - Drambo + Zeeon + Sunrizer
Mifki - miRack
Marek Bereza - Koala + KoalaFX
Alexander Zolotov - Fractal Bits + Sunvox
Burns Audio - Spectrum Synthesizer Bundle
Virsyn - Tera Pro + Teraverse
Nikolozi Meladze - Mela3
Kira Q - KQ Dixie
Arturia - iSEM
Igor Vasiliev - Spacefields + AltiSpace2
Apesoft - ApeDelay
Anthony Di Furia - Infinitum Delayrium
Lofionic - Duplicat
@mistercharlie Could you update the original post to add those identified in later posts? Would be great to have them all in one post.
Duplicat wants me to buy it again for mac, even tho i bought it for ipad already Also it does not show on bought list or mac app store, but i had to open the link through web browser to even find the app on mac. Sucks because there is something about it that i really like.
Same thing with iSem.
Others apps i found to appear on ableton(have not tested them all yet) and were still available on app store few days ago:
A wiki entry might be better, so anyone can add to it. I’ll see about adding one
Not sure if this is the case, but when we released our iOS AUv3 for the M1, it also didn't show up as bought when we tested the store experience afterwards. The button displayed the full dollar amount, but after you went ahead with the purchase it showed a popup that you already owned the app, hence there was no charge.
Igor Vasiliev - Spacefields + AltiSpace2 + SoundSaw
It's never worked on my M1 Mac Mini. Tried support, but they seem to have run out of ideas.
I get this when I try and open it now:
"Can't activate audio device (RemoteIO start error 0). Please restart Drambo."
Officially out now, fingers crossed we get a deluge of compatible apps soon! Spacecraft very buggy, Moog apps seem fine, Polywave working if a bit CPU hungry. JOY!
Sorry for responding to an old post, but do you have any audio loopback software such as Loopback or Blackhole installed? I had very similar issues with certain apps failing to output any sound and when I got rid of the loopback software (I think it was Blackhole), the problems immediately went away.
Just did a quick test with a preset from Drambo in Ableton 11.2. Seems to work fine with a MIDI clip feeding into it.
Thanks for the reply - no, none of that installed at all, and other compatible iPad apps work fine.
Just tested again in standalone, as I updated to the latest Big Sur recently, and still get an "Can't activate audio device (RemoteIO start error 0). Please restart Drambo." error.
I can close this and still open Drambo, but when I load a demo track, it still doesn't play, and there's still no sound from the pads.
Just doesn't work.
Ableton 10.1.43 - won't load at all.
I apologise if I'm jumping the gun and this is a specific problem for a M1 Mac mini, as I tested on a MacBook Pro M1 pro machine.
But AUv3 won't work at all on any Live version before 11.2 anyway.
Yeah I just tested it that way just out of interest, the main test was in standalone mode. Logic refuses to load it, but that does support my other iOS compatible apps.
It’s never worked in standalone mode on my Mini, won’t run, not a squeak from the audio at all. The dev interacted for a while but they didn’t reply to my last response.
Says it ‘works on this Mac’ on the app store, but it doesn’t.
