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.

Why Cubasis split my midi file in 5 parts?

I want to learn a piece of piano on my Linnstrument.

I downloaded the midi file of a piano piece. I put the midi file in a midi track in Cubasis 3, but for whatever reason, the file has been split in something like 5 midi tracks.

Not sure to understand why.

My goal is to put the midi track in Cubasis and sending the midi note to my Linnstrument so I can see the right note to play. I hope I'm clear with my clumsy English.

Thank you.

  • The file you downloaded is probably in Midi 1 format, where each track is separated. Try to look for a file in Midi 0 format.

    Very useful information. Thank you.

  • Just to add- five different MIDI tracks usually means the MIDI information contained in the file is intended to be played by five different instruments. Are you certain that all five MIDI tracks must be combined to replicate the piano part? Or is the piano part contained in just one of those tracks?

  • I have problems using MIDITapeRecorder in Garageband to 'export Midi'.
    I find that it records MIDI from one track in GB across a whole bunch of MIDI tracks so when I import it into Cubasis it is a mess.

    To solve this I used an Atom2 in AUM to play the saved MIDI, then a Mozaic script to process the MIDI and put it all on one channel, then record the output of the Mozaic script to a second Atom2 where I export the MIDI. I then load it into Cubasis and it works fine.

    If you have AUM, Atom2, and Mozaic then this'll work for you too.

    If anyone knows of an easier way, let me know!

    It's a fugue.

    Lots of piano MIDI files are multi-track like this. Some have separate left and right hand tracks. Some have more.

    Are you recording MPE data into MTR?

    I wasn't trying to... I get this recording pretty any GB track to MIDI through MTR.
    But I have a laborious solution that works as described above. It will solve OPs issue too, there are a bunch of patchstorage scripts that can remap midichannels.

    I see.

    Good to know. I've never actually downloaded a MIDI file so that is news to me.
