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.
Why isn't there any live vids/clips of people using Loopy Pro at a gig?
I'm looking to get setup with looping bass, drums, pads etc - turning things into a one-man-band sorta deal with a looper.
I'm heading into doing it with Loopy Pro, slowly setting it up how I want to so I can gig it with my Akai MPK Mini Play Mk3 and/or NI S88 Mk2, and acoustic guitar + vocals.
Jumping on YT.. there's plenty of demos of people looping with it, but I haven't found a single video of anyone at a gig, using Loopy Pro to do what I want to do.
Is there a reason for this? People just prefer hardware ie footpedal loopers etc.. or is there some issue with iPads and/or Loopy Pro that I'm unaware of?
I know it is a little annoying to have to bring a little interface for guitar/vocals (I've got a Focusrite Scarlett Solo for this), but it still seems odd that there's nobody doing it live at a gig.
I was thinking it was because people seem to need the metronome to kick things off, and even if you panned metronome L and the mix R, you'd have to have headphones for it to be workable which isn't practical at a gig.
Maybe there's more to it. In theory it seems like there shouldn't be any issues with using LP + maybe a footpedal MIDI controller for all my looping needs. Curious as to why there doesn't appear to be any vids of people doing it, at gigs.
I keep mentioning "at gigs" because I have no interest in people doing it at home or whatever, I want to see it being done on stage, live, with people watching/singing/dancing etc ie actual real-gigging-world use as that's what I want to be doing with it.
