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.

Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.

NEW App: King of Digital - EPIC Hybrid Synth, 900+ Presets

Hey Everyone!
So, it's been a wild ride of about 6 years since I dived headfirst into the mad world of music apps with Digital D1, AudioKit's first paid music app. We were fairly new to a lot of concepts, and AUv3? That was like sci-fi to us.

It’s been a long journey, and it feels like I've racked up enough experience to earn what feels like a PhD in music app making. There's been lots of late nights for those $3 and $4 apps. It’s been a tough gig, but hey, I'm still standing. And, going solo with this app (as with King of FM, SNES, and King of Bass).

As many of you old school folks remember – D1 launched launched ages ago with a little over 300 presets. People loved the retro sounds, the dual filters, stacked views, and great presets.

More and more people contributed, and I've been secretly recording and gathering sounds for the D1 sequel. It's kind of crazy to think that King of Digital is dropping with

Brace yourselves...

900 presets!

The new sounds are pretty epic. And the old ones are like a time machine through the past six years of iOS Music, with legendary presets from Brice Beasley, DMT Cymatics, Moby Pixel, Red Sky Lullaby, Jakob Haq, Electronisounds (Dean Daughters), Sound of Izrael, rs2000, Mitch the AudioDabbler, Brian Funk, and more.

And, I even swallowed my pride and made sure AudioKit's biggest detractors on this forum got the pre-release and gave me their feedback. (Which was surprisingly good).

Creating a new app inspired by an old one presented unique challenges. One funny one – 
During the testing phase, I discovered that some presets in King of Digital sound different from D1, no matter what I tried. This was because some of the original samples in D1 weren't playing back correctly! So for some of you, this will be the first-time experiencing the original D1 PCM Sounds as they were truly meant to be heard.

I toyed with the idea of slicing up these PCM Cards and presets into pricey in-app goodies. But you know what? Scrap that. You get the whole dang thing, all in one.

As a gift to the iOS music app community. I'm offering the complete package – The full, uncut experience is yours for just $3.99. So, if this is interests you at all, grab it before I come to my senses and raise the price. Which could sooner than later.

For now, this might be the best deal in iOS Music history:
All 900+ Presets, 5 PCM cards of 3+ Gigs of Original Sounds (with "King" compression to 450mb), and 12 Sound banks for... $3.99

How does it sound?

I'm sure Doug will make it sound better. But it makes my hack playing nicer for sure.

After what seems like years of struggle, King of Digital is EDIT: Out Now!

  • I'll buy as soon as it's released, loved earlier releases.

  • Yep an instabuy for me.

    I think your YT video is more than enough for an instant purchase for many of us. Including me :smile:

    As a 64GB iPad owner, let me ask you... would it be possible to install the content on an external drive?

  • Congrats on the release! It’s been really nice to watch each new release being more polished and interesting than ever!

    And the cost-benefit is just amazing. 900 presets by some of the best names in the game is a lot of material for any synth, regardless of price!

  • It’ll be an instabuy for me. Sigur Bos on the original D1 is just about my favourite synth preset ever.

  • Super cool! Love those sounds.. can’t wait to hear the rest..
    Congrats + thanks for your hard work, passion + dedication..

  • That is great news Matt!

    That's very, very brave of you :sunglasses:

    I know I've been a bit harsh on AK (the 'framework' not the persons behind it) from time to time and with hands on the heart, I do feel that the 'harshness' is/was needed in order to push things forward to the level where they are at today, others might disagree and I accept that.

    My main intention is and always will be to push things forward to become even better and definitely not 'trash things' and sometimes a bit of 'hard love' is needed :wink:

    Hopefully this one does well, you deserve it!

    Cheers!

  • Looking forward to those D1 sounds without all the crashing associated with the older apps!

    I've not been able to make the beta crash yet, not even once so I consider it to be pretty 'stable' :)

  • Congratulations on the launch, this is the must have rompler for the iOS world, very handy.

    And thanks for the kind price!

    Hey, it’s my job to post those! :lol:

    We need a “That’s what she said” thread - there’s at least a couple of quotable double entendres every day here.

  • Is this then considered to be the updated and fixed D1 or will that a separate fix and app entirely?

  • Not yet available in the german app store 😢

  • @dannysteel said:

    Just like King of FM is a new updated app for FM Player - the new King of Digital will replace D1. New app - same presets as D1 plus about 500 more new ones. And if it’s like king of FM it should be super stable hosted in DAWs now.

  • This makes my day! Insta buy!

  • I would gladly buy some IAP’s if you got them added to the apps

    +1

    Or just a tip jar would be good.

  • So nice of you to plan this release for my birthday (on Thursday) @AnalogMatthew :heart:

  • Are there any videos about it, without ppl making stupid faces in the thumbnail? Just can't support that

  • @RanDoM_rRay said:

    Stupid is an opinion. Think of it as a surprised face. There's your video about it. ;)

  • @Ailerom , nah im good, Doug has a video premiering soon. The faces are stupid, the hype is stupid. Not saying anything about this specific app, just the lame game in general of "playing towards/for shit algorithms". So with what little power i have left in the world, anytime stupid faces are suggested to me... DO NOT RECOMMEND channel again If the product is legit then it will speak for itself, not MINDBLOWN GAMECHANGER APP title for stuff ppl won't ever use in another video again, or ppl having to have their face in the screen to cover part of the PRODUCT im trying to see. But everyone wants to be a star...
