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.
iPad Pro 11"
I’ve recently been on a trip to the hardwareworld for about 2 years. During this time I've been making much less music on the iPad. I bought the Deluge, MC-101, MPC Live II, Akai Force, Octatrack, Syntakt and the latest purchase is the Polyend Play. This made me realize that hardware is NOT better. I have already sold the 101, Live 2, octa and the force. And I will probably sell the Syntakt soon as well. As you can see my GAS has been outrageous This is my search for the perfect groovebox to make music on when I’m not on my primary setup with Maschine MKIII.
Last weekend I picked up my 2020 12.9 iPad Pro and made some music in beatmaker 3 and used some of the new AUv3-synths that has been released. And now I realize that my perfect groovebox has been lying around in my home all this time. I mean the songs I make with beatmaker 3 sounds way better than what anything that comes out of the syntakt for example. The Deluge is different, the workflow is superfast and it sounds good almost every time.
Now to the point of this thread. After selling all this gear I thought I’d get myself another iPad that is even more portable than the 12.9”. I’m thinking of buying the 11” iPad pro with the m1 chip. I know it’s nearing the end of the cycle and apple will probably release a updated iPad pro 11" with the new m2 chip in sep-oct. But after hearing about the review’s on the m2 I’m not that impressed so maybe it’s not worth the wait?
I wonder if anyone here is using the 11 iPad pro and what do you think about it? Is the screen too small for music production?
