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 path is your sound taking?
Until now, I have almost exclusively been using headphones for ipad music-making. When I'm not using headphones, then the output of my ipad is going into my Volt audio interface, which is then connected via USB cable to my laptop, and into Ableton.
I am now thinking that I want to go from ipad to monitor speakers as directly as possible, to get the most "accurate" representationof the sound. If I go through my Behringer mixer (mx 602A), which has lo-mid-hi EQs then of course the sound is coloured in some way,...as it always is.
So basically I'm interested to hear about people's set-ups, and specifically advice and thoughts on the pros and cons of using mixers, audio interfaces, headphones etc.
