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.
Well, that was weird: The Enemy Is Whoever You Are Facing
A first, of sorts. I, er, ‘composed’ this entire… thing… at the piano, playing successive parts into instances of Atom. A single USB C cable from the Roland into the IPad Pro, no interfaces or dongles or whatnot required, a very slick workflow.
So what? I hear you yawn. Well, it’s just that this is a very novel way for me to work. (Given that I can’t play the piano, obviously.) Usually, I’m all about the auto generators and found sounds and File Player loops. But this was an actual instrument, fingers on keys in real time stuff. Metronomes, even.
As I say, weird. Not to mention: difficult. That actual playing an instrument thing is quite tricky, isn’t it?
As to what style it is… I dunno. I went with ‘chaos’. Seemed as accurate as anything. Maybe someone can tell me what genre this ought to be. Does it remind you of anything? (Other than a right old din, obviously.)
