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.

  • It'll be out later today...
    (around 8pm in Sweden is usually when Apple drops the updates).

    My iPhone 8 won't make it to iOS17, only the M1 iPadPro (iPadOS17) and my AppleTV (tvOS17) 'qualify' :sunglasses:

  • I’m on the beta program. Not using any music apps (all ipad) but any bugs i’ve felt in regular use are gone, as far as i can tell. And no notable new features, since no one asked 🙃

    I have an iPhone XR which is nowhere near top of the range but still qualifies

    any gain to expect with iPadOS/iOS 17 regarding music making?

  • nothing new that grabs me on IOS 17, so no urgency - I'll give it a few weeks and see what others say ;)

    No doubt it will impact by phone battery life even more !!

  • The only thing I've heard is that you can get a usb capture card for the iPad and with an additional bit of software you can use it as an additional monitor. That will be quite useful to me. Relative to the other stuff. I don't know.

  • Hey I will finally be able to set a timer for multiple things cooking in the kitchen!

  • For me the beta has been largely stable, just a few issues with text selection, auto-correct, and zooming in Maps that seem to be fixed in the latest RC version. All of my (rather limited selection) of music and video apps seem to working fine though. Note, Groovebox, FCP, Fabfilters, etc.

    Well, FCP is no more buggy than it was before anyway. 😉

  • i haven't seen anything relevant new on the table.
    going to stay with 16 as long as possible.

  • I’ll update once work tells me that it’s been approved for my email to work with it. Probably a week or so.

  • Installing as I type this message

  • I don’t see anything on the IPad side that stands out as far as music production goes, it’s got some new things for sure, but I don’t see anything that says they had IPad producers/Musicians in mind. I’ll probably update my IPhone just for the hell of it but I’ll wait as far as my IPad goes, at least until I’m sure it doesn’t break anything that’s not broken……as they say…if it ain’t broke 🤷🏽‍♂️

  • Awesome!!
    Are there new emojis???

  • Seems pretty busy...

  • Mine downloaded in about 4 mins.

    3Gb in 4 minutes, that's one hell of a line you got. Both phone and pad are slow as hell. Maybe it's on my end.

    Always asking the critically important questions… :lol:

    That might improve over time. Likely everyone is slamming their servers at once trying to update.

  • I haven’t done any testing but both iPad and phone upgraded. Think I got lucky with my download slot. I don’t notice any difference.

  • Sometimes it seems a new OS is mainly to make older devices feel unloved.

  • Actually stage manager is much improved.

  • Here's a nice summary of user-facing new features and changes in iPadOS 17: https://www.apple.com/ipados/ipados-17/pdf/iPadOS_All_New_Features.pdf

    Per @cyberheater Stage Manager get some nice refinements. I don't see much that will directly affect most music workflows. However I don't think this document probably covers under-the-covers changes to core libraries and such so who knows. I installed right away and so far my projects in Logic and AUM seem to open and run fine, no noticeable spike in CPU utilization or anything.

  • @cyberheater There was something very wrong on my end, had to do a force restart and after that hours changed to minutes. Still took a good 20 or so. :)

  • @wim this one is for you.

  • I do like the weather wallpaper
