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.

    Did you see my feedback from a couple hours ago?

    I did, looks like there are still a few people having issues - will go again next week

    I’ve tried to eliminate any possible case. I’ve run it standalone and within Drambo and AUM. Still the same issue. Plus the issue of not being able to select a sample or close the dialog is still there.

    Anyhow, have a decent break. I’m sure the solution will be blindingly obvious next week 😉

    Siri, what do ABF forum members mean when they say that some of these weird music apps are like the story of their lives?

    ... could never get it to do what I wanted, but the results were always so intriguing.

    Yes, it's a sad and beautiful world.

    Oh yes, Benigni. 👍 His part in Night on Earth is as close to the perfect movie short as you can get.

    Edit: it's on YouTube in full :)

    Glorious, thanks for that.

    I was just thinking about buying a Korg Volca Sample too. I’ll hold off with that.

    Me too. Do you think this app would replace that?

    It’s not going to be far off, possibly better in many ways.

    The Volca Sample 2 is such a cute machine though. It calls on my creativity.

    Buy both and sequence the volca with the app, best of both worlds 😀

    That’s my plan! I have the volca fm, volca sample, modal craft synth, PO 16, PO 33, and bastl kastl. Gonna scoop Strokes soon and get in on the fun. :)

    As far as I can tell, if it’s loaded as an instrument it’s not able to send midi anywhere in NS2. Probably should have read the App Store description better but I bought it expecting to be able to use it as a midi AU, I’m not overly interested in using it as an instrument with samples but it looks like it should be amazing at driving other instruments. Would be interested if anyone has gotten it to sequence AU instruments in any DAW other than AUM, I have a feeling AUM is the outlier here.

    I feel like the solution here is to have a seperate MIDI FX and instrument/sampler builds.

    I'm tackling this same thing for Logic AU next so I will do the same for iOS too.

    In the meantime I can send you the last build via testflight which will run as a MIDI effect - just DM me your email address.

    Hey - that would be cool to have a separate midifx. Would that build be backwards compatible with the older projects?

  • @congburn - any more news on the sample loading problem? If you need anyone to test, I'd be happy to help...

    I've just sent out v3.9.1 on the app store. I've had a mixed response with some people saying it's fixed and others saying the issue persists.

    I'm correlating all the feedback to look for patterns in the errors and I've started a community discord to speed this process up - if you've bought strokes on the App Store and are experiencing freezing, step into the discord or drop me an email and I'll add you to the list for beta testing the iOS app.

    My top priority is getting this issue fixed

    edit: discord link -> https://discord.gg/ETKn7kBpzn

  • Hm. Sample loading works on my 2020 Pro but not my 2022 Pro, same iOS. If I tap to load sample everything just freezes. Have tried uninstall/reinstall. Any one else have problems?

    Hi John, just wanted to weigh in just in case it helps. I also have the issue with freezing after hitting Load Sample button on an iPad Air 2022. Just checked and my iPad Pro 9.7 2016 works fine as far as I can tell, (I’ve only just bought Strokes so I’ve not dived far yet).
    Both are running iPadOS 16.2 (20C65).

    EDIT: Sorry, forgot to say, both are using updated version 3.9.1

  • I've noticed that when you click on the sample load button and Strokes "freezes", if you swipe to another app and then swipe back to Strokes or your AU host the load dialog is now present and you can load a sample. I think the "freeze" is really the load dialog being shown off screen, which prevents interaction with the windows below it. Swiping to another app and then back to Strokes seems to reset the window back on screen. Just mentioning in case it helps debug the root cause.

    Can you actually load a sample when you swipe back? If I do this I get the load dialog but can't actually select a sample to load.

    Yes, I was able to load samples. However with the 3.9.1 update it works correctly on my devices, so I am no longer able to reproduce the issue.

    This sounds hopeful news!

  • Any news on when this is goong to be fixed? Still freezes when loading samples when loaded in AUM as an AUv3. Plus Strokes crashes in standalone when you tap on LOAD and then want to dismiss the File load pop-up window by tapping outside of it.

  • The latest update fixed it for me. I got a cool little melody last night with it. I can’t wait to play around it with it this weekend. Amateur goal of the week for me is to get a little song with strokes as the sequencer, or at least one of them.

    Not here either, prices vary from country to country Mr Cazel. In Sweden, roughly estimated back via Oanda it's 32$ (USD).

  • Are the sample loading issues resolved yet?

    I had no probs loading samples last time I tried, but loaded samples are not recalled for me when loading a saved aum instance of Strokes that contained samples when saved. ie. At least some aspects of state saving are broken. Anyone else?

  • edited January 2023

    Yes! Sample loading is fixed.

    Projects, kits and patterns load reliably and yes AUM state-saving loads the patterns but not the samples - it is so close!

    I guess I'll wait a little longer.

  • Yeah this is gonna be extremely cool and powerful once it saves state properly
