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.

Hello Forum,

Is it possible to Combine the internal iPad interface with an external to make a Cue mix for headphones? Or do i Need an Interface with More than 1+2 Output Channels?

    Hang on a bit. I may have posted that with incomplete knowledge. Best to wait for others to chime in.

    I think you will need an interface with 4 or more channels. I know of no way to output different channels to different devices (with any iOS app).

  • iOS 17 may bring changes that will allow developers to build multiple interface support into their apps. For now Apple has hoarded this capability for it's own use in Logic Pro only.

    As far as I know, even Logic doesn’t support different output devices for different channels”. My impression is that it lets you choose which available output device gets all output, though I could be mistaken.

  • Thanks for the clarification.

  • I could be wrong. Hopefully, someone will correct me if I am.

    Actually, yes, soon! This functionality is provided by an iOS feature called Multiroute; Loopy Pro doesn’t quite support that yet, but I plan to add that very soon so you’ll be able to do exactly this.

    Note that this only works with headphones plugged into the devices’s headphone port and a USB audio interface, but I’m pretty sure that’s what you’re referring to. (If you have a device without a headphone port, then you’re out of luck, thanks Apple!)

  • @Michael So Apple will add support for something that they no longer supply on their devices? Is this an iOS 17 only feature? I have an iPad Pro 9.7 that is now out to pasture and will only now see 16 - just wondering.

    It's not a new/upcoming feature, it's been in iOS for years. Not quite sure when it came in.
