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.
What UXs do you like and dislike and why?
What UIs / UXs do you like and dislike and why?
I think it is useful to talk about both the look of an app and its workflow. For example I can think of some apps that look beautiful but don’t have very good implementation on the knobs so it can be hard to dial in an accurate value quickly, which is an extremely important thing for some parameters, like ones related to frequencies for example.
As I have always said, Bleass UI/UX appeal to me. Like the colors. No need to dive into settings menus. Everything is upfront and easy to access. There are sometimes missing features (eg in Fusion I don’t really understand why LFO 1 can’t be assigned to modulate LFO 2). Why does Megalit have no ability to import your own Wavetables?
Big fan of Bram’s Uis in general but when it comes to accurate and fast dialing in of knobs I prefer BeepStreet Combustor and Dagger - also love the aesthetics of those apps.
The preset system in Igor’s apps is not something I’m a fan of. Usually don’t much like the 4Pockets interfaces. Just a matter of personal taste in terms of looks, but I also often feel that the workflow has some jarring elements.
I could go on, but I’ll stop there for now!
