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.

  • I’m curious, is this something that could be replicated with say, Pure Synth Platinums bass sound and a sequencer? I guess the sequencer would lack the “human” element of this app though.

    Uh ... not showing up for me in any host after the update. I've run the standalone, rebooted the iPad, and even deleted and re-installed the app.

    iOS 15.7.9 iPad Air 2.

    @LuisMartinez ?

    confirmed

    Opens in Audio Evolution and AUM for me. Starts and stops fine, changes tempo etc. A bit glitchy sometimes, but that could be my iPad. It’s great to finally use it without issues, and especially given it’s a free update! Thanks @LuisMartinez

    Oh it's a free update? Wow, that is amazing

  • So naturally the question is... when are the rest? :)

    😎 Thanks! well… months of work here… if any happy iBassist user would like to say thanks for the update, nothing better than purchasing any of the other drummer app 👍

  • edited October 2023

    iPadOS 16.7.1 here: thanks for the effort; unfortunately, I’ve already purchased all of your drum apps and all of the drummers…

    and everything works as it should !

  • @LuisMartinez
    Been a joy being on the beta
    Great work
    Obviously would love on the iPhone
    But there is still a couple of drummer apps that I don’t have
    So expect a purchase later today
    Just got to decide which one
    1st world problems

    Loving the update, much improved not just the AUV3, already have all the Drummers and use them regularly. Thanks for all your hard work

    Same here on the same setup

    I'm seeing a problem after using the gear icon to get into the settings when it's loaded in AUM - I"m unable to get the settings window to close, although I can still tap on the main screen behind it. There is a button with an arrow that works in the standalone mode, so I'm sure I'm tapping the right icon. Anyone else seeing this?

    iPad Pro 3rd Gen
    iPadOS 16.7.1
    Ipad restarted

    Edit Discovered that iBassist is maximized in AUM by double tapping the title bar, then tap settings, the button works, but if I shrink the window at all, the button stops working and will still not work even after re-maximizing it.

    I encountered the same problem using iBassist in LP4i. The only way to return to the main window was to replace iBassist with another plugin then replace that plugin with iBassist.

    Ok, Seems a problem with iOS versions. Another user had this issue with iOS 15.5 , updated to 16.7.1 and now works perfect.

    Probably works from iOS 16, anyway will try to fix it

  • Anyone have this working on iOS 17?

  • Beta testing over?

  • @visualsuplex said:

    Yes, it works on my Ipad Pro running 17.03

  • Is working totally fine for me so far on iOS 17 in AUM, both as instrument and midi

  • Well with Loopy Pro its not working - when i add it as AUV3, it crashes whenever i change instruments and its not even available as IAA

    I can get it working in AUM - but has a clicking/popping noise on all the instruments sans upright (i've played with all my i/o levels, tried a compressors ect)

    Also found that if you max out the jam/intensity slider and move it around, it starts making WILD noises

    I've done a few re installs, reboots, ect. I do notice when i open the app - it adds lines from other apps but only one at a time i.e. i have to open and reopen to get jazz/reggae ect

    Not MIDI Processor, Audio Track Audio Extension, right ?
    Not showing ?

    Nope, does not show up under audio track plugins in AUM, apeMatrix, LoopyPro, Garageband, Cubase 3 on IOS 16.2 - like you, i also suspect that it‘s a IOS version problem.

    Nevertheless, its a super cool and unexpected update and i hope that your drummer apps will follow after the quirks with going AUv3 are ironed out. I own nearly all of Lumbeat‘s apps and will be so so happy about the session restore that automatically comes with AUv3.

  • Thanks @LuisMartinez …big fan of your work!

    I own all the drummers except Rock Drummer! They are some of my fav go-to apps of all time! Would love to see them all eventually get the AuV3 treatment…or hear me out, I’d gladly be willing to PAY for an all new AuV3 that has ALL of the styles combined into one ULTIMATE Drummer!🙌🏾🤌🏾

    Gonna have to go purchase RD tonight in celebration of the dope free update! Gotta complete the set and help support future developments!

    That's interesting that you're on iOS 16.2. I had assumed it was because I'm on iOS 15. Thanks for reporting through the official support route. I was too lazy to find the info and do that.

    @LuisMartinez - So does the new version not have IAA? Because I can run the standalone but it's not listed in any host as an IAA either. If it does have IAA then that's another data point that might be relevant.

    Strange... it does not show up in the IAA list of plugins... But if I type/search 'iBassist (in Aum) it is there... iPad Pro 1st Gen, latest ios.

    Edit... Rebooted and it is gone completely... no biggie..

    Yeah - I concur - I own most of them and would gladly pay for the updates.

    Also - was there a beta for this? I would have loved to provided testing feedback. Maybe you should consider opening that up more to this community @LuisMartinez - so we can help you work out these bugs and free you up to develop?

    Loopy Pro's Discord and Community Roadmap is a great example of this.

    Seconding this. Discord has almost become an essential part of the beta testing and development process I’d say. I’m in a few for some of the bigger apps and there’s tons of info and insight there.

  • Seriously considering this one. Super generous to be offered as a free update. I never bought the app so this would be a new purchase for me. Looks fantastic.

    Want to say a massive thanks. Having a very enjoyable time in AUM adding effects and drums. Didn’t work at first but once started in standalone all was good.

    The sequencer for this is just where it’s at, it really does a great job adding the human element and then easily get it to do different styles. If I want funky, I can get pretty in the ballpark using Pure Acid with some swing or Riffer but this edges out those two options for me. Especially if the drummer apps get au treatment and then having the whole sync ecosystem. Plus the midi out on this rules

  • Looks exciting. I’ve desperately tried to find a way to make my various midi apps create good bass lines. I have a few questions that someone might be able to answer? 🙏😀
    I like to use Scaler 2 for creating song ideas. Can I send Scaler chords to iBassist, and will it then use these chords in combination with its inbuilt bass patterns?
    And can I send iBassists’s midi patterns to another app if I want other sounds than the ones in iBassist?
    Finally, does iBassist have a “mutate” function of a sort (like Hammerhead, etc) or does it play the patterns the same way every time?

    Yes.

    Yes. With midi export for sure, and with midi out if I remember correctly. Unfortunately I can’t verify that right now as it’s not showing up at all for me in hosts at this time.

    Finally, does iBassist have a “mutate” function of a sort (like Hammerhead, etc) or does it play the patterns the same way every time?

    Yes it has a “jam” amount setting that’s more intelligent and musical than hammerhead’s mutate randomization.

    Wow! Ticks all my boxes then. Thanks!
