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.

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

Eventide H90, and using the iPad as a hardware FX send

The new Eventide H90 looks amazing, but it costs $899, or €1,199 at Thomann. Plus I already have an H9 that I only use for reverb and delay.

This made me think, how are people using iPads to add effects to their hardware? AUM+audio interface is enough, but let’s get specific. Setups, latency experiences/workarounds, etc.

    iPad+AUM+Audio Interface is enough. I don't see a point of the h90 if you have all of those already. Latency will be same if not better than a pedal, plus you have unlimited slots for fx not just 2.

    For my hardware / modular, I just record everything in AUM after adding fx, no issues.

  • I’m going to play with this later. AUM seems just perfect for this.

  • I use an old iPhone 6 for this. For about $150 worth of items you have a pretty capable effects processor.

    You say that like it’s a bad thing. ;)

  • Reminder: Zoom CDR70 exist with a lot of top notch effects at a really good price.

    Not sure tone snob can hear the difference. Eventide algorithm are really good but old, not sure it worth so much more than the Zoom CDR70.

    This. The H90 looks great if you have infinite cash available, but for that kind of money you could invest in an interface with multiple ins and outs and use apps in AUM. And probably have cash to spare.

  • That’s how I run my pedalboard.
    Guitar into jhs drive pedal into hxstomp. From there usb audio to iPad and you have all the effects in the world on iOS routed parallel back in through the stomp. Loopy pro and AUM. I’ll never go back to spending 300 bucks on an effect pedal.
    Eventide micro pitch pedal $250
    On iOS : $10
