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.

Reason, set to anger people yet again?

Yup

Just did a survey about offline authorization of reason
And it was heavily tilted in favor on killing reason for those with no internet.

I feel like reason studios are set to piss people off in a major way yet again this year

  • You can tell the corporate suites that own reason are definitely all about WEF own nothing be happy jargonese

    And a let them eat bugs attitude

    Fine by me…it’s a Daw ecosystem I only use as a plug in these days anyways, and I have replaced almost every function it has

  • Well, there's no reason for them to do that. 😏

  • There are some companies that you require an Internet connection to initialise your plugin before you can use it. Some of the iLok cloud stuff. I won't use these. I actually refunded a plugin I bought from Sonnox a while back because of this. Actually I think Avid did the same thing with Pro Tools First. I think Cubase 12 has a monthly check in put in place so you get a month before having to reconnect. I get the authorisation/pirating issues with software, but there has got to be better way than having to connect to Big Brother every time you feel a little artistic inspiration arise.

    Absolutely. Yet there seems to be a large enough user group that doesn't care about putting their music machine online so they can probably do without the "few" who don't.

    It's funny, to me it looks like even more motivation for crackers to get their hands on it or, see Adobe, pushing other companies to offer similar products with more user friendly authorization mechanisms for less cash.

  • I feel that since they switched hands reason, is slowly unable to keep up, and is now losing the Daw wars

  • In fact, if it weren’t for the using the rack as a plug in thing…it might have already bellied

    Sadly I’m coming to the same conclusion, suit’s seem to be calling the tune and it’s off key.

  • What a waste of time this thread is, absolutely no useful information whatsoever, just some vague opinions from people who don’t seem to like Reason anymore anyway.

    I use it (standalone with offline authorisation), I like it. If you have something useful to say then I’m all ears. What have the suits now done exactly, apart from turn themselves into sofas (sic)?

  • Can’t say that they have ever angered me or done the same to most people. Mild irritation is probably more accurate.

    I have lost interest in them over the years though as they have changed the way Reason has developed.

  • I won’t listen to it…

    Maybe it’s a waste of time for you Steve? You could have just moved past it…you didn’t have to waste more time.

    It’s not a vague opinion, it’s a post about the more than likely scenario of having to have internet to use reason.
    I really don’t need reason using resources to phone home as I personally turn off Wi-Fi when making music to save on cpu.

    In case you missed it…I use Reason as a plug in…as it’s mostly out of date to use as a Daw and has been for some time. If you need a brief History, here it goes. I have been using reason since the day it came out. Reason one…in a box…. In fact, I bought it so early that when 4 came out I couldn’t update because I didn’t get a yellow card (golden ticket) and that is where they got me the first time. I couldn’t get reason 4 for the upgrade price and I even sent them pics of the original box, paperwork, and discs….nothing. I had to rebuy at full price. So that original screw over of 400.00 pissed me off out of principle. Then the buy out and rent thing…smh, which will win out by the way…subscription is what is pushed as buying the program is more hidden. These subscriptions are going to break people, or not allow people to use as many tools soon. How much stuff can you rent?

    Anyways…now phone home in the background…

    I just posted here to see if others were getting more aggrivated with the choices reason studios are making?

    In summary…
    Reason is falling behind against all other Daws, it’s missing even basic stuff
    Reason Studios doesn’t mind screwing your pooch dry…making them assholes versus other companies
    Leaving Wi-Fi on while making music isn’t always a workflow people desire…so cutting them out is kinda Dickson
    Reason can’t even load vst3 (most plug ins these days)
    The roadmap doesn’t seem very promising to be honest.

    Your opinion about my opinion? Well whatever I guess.
    +And your offline authorization is likely going away soon…which is what this post was about.
    You not noticing that, is priceless.

    Good! Give ‘em time. Long time users are getting more disgruntled as time goes by. Maybe I just care about the loads of money I invested into its ecosystem?

    At the end of the day I have hardware so if Reason doesn’t fit my needs, or if it becomes dial home, or becomes subscription it can fare off anyways. No big losses other than time and money.

    And to waste just a little more time…
    $20 a month is too much to pay for subscribing monthly to reason….there are better applications renting cheaper….
    And Lord help ya if you want to buy third party stuff in there…that’ll eventually turn subscription too…you gonna be out hundreds a month for reason…smh crazy shit right there..

    So base is 240.00 per year… to including rack extensions they don’t make…and they seem to update the program every 2-2.5 years. Updates were 129.99 versus around 480-500.00 for the same use.
