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.
MIDI File Generator
Hello, I’m the developer of SynthJacker, the autosampler for iOS. I’m working on an offshoot of SynthJacker — namely the part where you generate a MIDI file to drive the autosampling job. If you just want the notes, and maybe record and slice the results yourself, then you can just get the notes as a Standard MIDI file.
Basically you just set the start note and the end note, then select how many velocities you want, and the range. The app then distributes the velocities over the range. You also set the note length, note decay, and silence between the notes. Then you get a MIDI file you can import into any DAW, or make a headless autosampler using the command line, etc. That is going to save you a whole lot of clicking/tapping.
I’m calling this MIDI File Generator. Before I jump all in and polish it for App Store and Mac App Store, I wanted to ask if there already is something that does the job perfectly, making this redundant. I haven’t found anything, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t.
Later the app could be extended to generate MIDI files with scales and chords, and to include Program Changes. But that’s future development.
