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.
Recording from Patterning to MIDI Tape Recorder
Using Audiobus 3, I have Patterning in an Audio channel playing a loop that I’d like to record as MIDI into MIDI Tape Recorder, which I have loaded into the bottom (or, “out” slot) spot of the MIDI channel.
In the top slot of the MIDI channel I have what I suppose is the virtual MIDI bridge function which audiobus has automatically created and entitled “Patterning”. Very intuitive and quick to set up, and, when I open MTR, there are lights that flash in time with the beat coming out of Patterning. So far so good, nice.
However, here’s the problem: the Record button (the Play button also) doesn’t make the MTR record the pattern, it does nothing in fact. Does anyone here have experience working with these 2 apps or know what I need to do to get the MTR to record Patterning’s MIDI output?
