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.
Question for devs (or those in the know) about desktop-iOS porting and drag n drop
First issue here is that some desktop devs seem to think that importing audio via drag and drop is not possible
Second issue is that they then investigate when told this is possible, but report that the framework they are using to port does not support drag and drop.
So is there a framework for them that does support this?
If they are using JUCE then they just patiently have to wait until the framework gets support for the features they need...
Yes... My advice was to contact whatever framework dev they're using and ask them to get up to speed
@Gavinski, just curious, which apps do you (or do you envision) dragging from in most cases?
Well, Jesse, at the moment probably Samplecrate, as it seems to be a good solution for quickly demoing any wav file anywhere on the iPad, whether files app, Audioshare, or whatever
Personally I'd love to drag a midi-clip from Scaler 2 to something like Cubasis 3...
Some apps have hidden drag zones (Both Synthmaster 1 & 2 accept user-samples dragged to the oscillator waveform view).
Playbeat is one of the most desperately needed apps to implement something like this.
jason, of course you are perfectly right that no framework is needed. However most desktop devs are using frameworks like JUCE to port their desktop apps to iOS and this is unlikely to change. So if JUCE doesn't implement this, what to do? Do they need to instead avoid using JUCE completely, or just get JUCE to add this functionality to the JUCE framework, or are they able to add the drag and drop feature on to their JUCE app anyway, frankenstein's monster style, regardless of whether JUCE have implemented it?
Why was this thread closed?
Does not seem to be closed.
But moved to the App Developement category.
