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.

TB MBC - Multi-Band Compressor from ToneBoosters

@DJB I am starting a new thread because every ToneBoosters release deserves a launch thread and the other thread still says 'coming soon'

TB MBC - the ultimate Multi-Band Compressor https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/tb-mbc/id1634911966

TB MBC is a multi-band dynamics processor and analog saturator, providing a wealth of tools to sculpt your audio tracks. With up to 10 fully configurable bands, 2 compressor curves per band, positive and negative saturation, and external side chain support, it is the most complete and versatile multi-band compressor available for iOS today.

Features:

  • Up to 10 frequency bands

  • Every band has two compressor curves

  • Upward and downward compression in each band

  • Positive and negative (expansive) saturation per band

  • Mid-side processing per band (for stereo input)

  • External side chain compression per band

  • Manual or automatic, program-dependent release

  • Configurable compression knee and compression range parameters

  • Audition mode per band

  • 2nd order or 4th order cross-over network

  • Dry/wet mixing control for parallel / New York style compression

  • High Quality mode using internal oversampling

  • Spectrum analyser with various graphic presentation modes

  • Input and output gain parameters, and output digital VU meter

  • AUv3 with resizable UI and dozens of color themes to choose from

  • Preset management including import and export options

  • Undo, redo, A/B switching

  • Inter-app audio (IAA) support

What you should know:

  • Inter-App Audio (IAA) can only use one instance of this app simultaneously. We recommend to use an AUv3 host to use multiple instances.

  • Licenses acquired for this platform are not compatible with other platforms.

  • Audio Unit (AUv3) extensions require an iPad mini 2, iPad 4 or later models.

    Beatmakers trick from @eylvy

    But can those parameter changes be automated? That's something I haven't found out yet.

  • This is a desktop version first impression. They highlight the pros and cons against one of Melda Production’s beastmode compressors which I’m not sure is fair. Feature for feature, not many can go up against Melda, but they rightly point out that the ToneBoosters UI, workflow, price, is much more attractive. (I still love Melda though and when they sell for 70% off they are more competitive in pricing. Whatever. We get both options from two distinct and amazing developers!)

    Ease of use and having a smart set of practical functions means getting up and running immediately with Toneboosters apps. That's a pretty great combo for production work.

    Good question, maybe this can be achieved using Drambo's automation or an app like 4pocket's MidiMixer for that.
