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.
CLAP plugins on the iPad?
You probably have heard about CLAP, the ambitious new open source audio plugin format driven by U-He and Bitwig. If not, it’s currently on the news:
At Superbooth I discussed the matter with the Bitwig guys and they are very determined. The format is definitely superior. Multi-core support, non-destructive modulation, Midi 2.0 and last but not least vendor independent. Of course it won‘t be easy, if not impossible, to convince the owners of the current formats to integrate CLAP into their DAWs - that includes Apple.
Being usually all AUv3 on the iPad it feels a bit like „splendid isolation“ and DAWs often not supporting AUv3. So what do you think? Will we see CLAP on the iPad at some point in time? Will developers embrace it? Is there any reason CLAP plugins would be banned from the AppStore?
