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 would it take to make Gadget a live performance tool?
As an exercise in futility (because Korg won’t listen to this, let alone take action upon it), I have been wondering for the past 45 seconds what it would take to make Gadget a wonderful live performance centrepiece.
As it stands, Gadget is nice – after all, I’ve been using it for 100% of my iOS compositions in the past several years (these now get moved to LPX for getting everything up to standard).
However, for me it is for composing and originating. I’ve never thought of it as a live sequencer. What if it was? If I did a live performance with it now, all I’d be able to do is play the song, or play scenes, and jump to another scene with double tapping. I’d be able to mute and solo, I’d be able to twiddle with the synths and their knobs and sliders and other controls, I’d be able to affect the effects. Is that enough? I get the feeling I need a bit more granularity in terms of scenes (unless I made each scene quite tiny – nothing more than a riff, or motif or suchlike, rather than a verse or chorus).
