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 a long strange trip it has been: Datura
Don’t try this at home, kids: Datura stramonium, a.k.a thorn apple, devil's snare, devil's trumpet… poisonous, deliriant hallucinogen, used in rituals the world over from Native American shamen to Ethiopian ‘debtrawoch’ (priests), by Buddhist ascetics to liberate themselves from samsara, the cycles of birth, misery, and death, or as the ‘flying ointment’ of broomstick riding European witches… (the origin of ‘night flying’ here likely owing more to the potential as a delivery system a broom handle provides for a hallucinogenic salve to the - more absorbent - tissues of a female practitioner than any actual aerial adventures). But it is an ‘ordeal hallucinogen’; bad dreams are guaranteed, actual death a distinct possibility…
This is a fifty/fifty between modular and iPad. It started as a long atmospheric thing on the hardware in my usual monkey-with-a-typewriter mode, then I recorded the patch live into AUM via my Zoom U-44, added ThumbJam Doom-Djembe and some Scaler-driven Atom loops based off the audio driving Model 15, BeatHawk and Factory. starryai.com has done it’s Lovecraft filter thing on an actual photo of an actual Datura, key words ‘poison devil flower.’
