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.
@MisplacedDevelopment mentioned in another thread problems with or confusion about how retrospective recording works. Let’s use this thread to clarify the topic.
Basic rundown, retrospective looping when quantize is on, captures the last complete master cycle’s worth of input.
So if the cycle length is 8 and the clock is running and has run for 8 or more bars, you can tap on a loop at any time to capture the previous cycle’s content.
So, if you tap in bar 10 or 11, you capture bars 1-9 (the last complete cycle).
If quantize is off, you capture 8 bars back from when you tapped.
If you tap before 8 bars have passed , it will record and count out after 8 bars.
If something else happens, you may have run into a bug. If something strange happens, please post a demonstration that includes the settings.
