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.

Secret recipes for the A word.

I hate to keep bringing up Ambient, but besides reverbs, delays, granular, distortion, generative sequencing, time stretching, rings into clouds, lofi effects,
playing stuff backwards, warble and glitch sounds are you guys using for Ambient/drone music?

    Enough FAC Alteza + anything else = Ambient. 😛

  • Take any (cheap) electric guitar, have it relatively in tune, plug it into any sort of audio interface, have a channel ready with any kind of amp sim and looooots of long reverb, play a nice chord (or just a major third interval) and then slowly turn up the volume knob on your guitar/iPad channel/interface or volume pedal while the strings are still ringing out then take a sippy of your beer/wine/whiskey and enjoy the 20-40 seconds of pure sonic beauty.

    Agree at least all good reverb / delay FAC , cascade, got a toolbox with great reverb and a bunch of samples cooked by me. No recipe just good tasty ingredients

    eurorack, guitars, perc/piano, old synths and foley through effect pedals and tape recorders then into the DAW.

    Indeed Paul very useful free app . But not any sample à very good sample that fit. More difficult to find the good sample that fit.

    A good Ambient is more than 1 sample you need some spice too with a nice piano , sax…or …

    I disagree there. I don't think it makes any difference once you get to extreme stretching. I've never failed to find gold somewhere in any sample.

    In fact, I've had fun making a totally inappropriate recording such as a fart into a beautiful soundscape. (Don't ask me to post it - I've long since lost track of it - but it kept me vastly entertained one night. 😂)

    Hmm I’ve never had any issues with it. It’s one of my go-to apps for anything ambient or drone like. Not all ambient needs other instruments. In fact, a lot of ambient drones don’t use anything else at all.

    I love Paul apps and never add any issues about this app. As English is not my native language my explanation wasn’t good . When it come to Ambient your views are right but my creativity make me to try more layers than only one sample.

    Gotcha 🤝 I like to spice things up. Sometimes it’s just one long droning note, somethings there’s occasional percussion, sometimes a quick synth or piano part, etc.
