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.
Ableton Live: Metronome works a bit strange (to me…)
I want to jam with external gear and Live on my MacBook as main sequencer. Everything works fine, but the metronome and i are no friends, yet. Because: when i start a new clip recording (with the Launchpad), the metronome is quiet while counting in, and only then, when the recording begins, it is audible. This makes no sense to me, because i need to hear it first to play the first notes in time.
In the manual they say, that if Link is turned on (the main „Synth” is an iPad with Gadget, therefore Link is enabled), the behavior i describe here is normal.
For me this is nonsense and in other DAWs i can hear the click from the beginning.
I would appreciate if someone could make things clearer to me and maybe give me a workaround.
