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.
Dream Cartel vs JWM - Crystals at the Disco (Justice styled track in Koala)
So ever since hearing the two new tracks Justice released yesterday, I wanted to create something in a similar vein to what I heard. Somewhere between hard electro techno and disco. Then my mate @dreamcartel showed me his track "Crystals"!
I asked him if I could sample it, and he gave me permission. So I screen recorded the video, popped that into Koala. I originally planned to microsample this, but then I tried looping the samples instead (4-bar loop for the saw lead with hints of the crystal sound, 2-bar loop for the crystal sound on its own).
Then I loaded Koala into AUM for sampling purposes. I sampled the main bass from Daggar, the secondary bass from Chicago, the mellotron strings and Middle East plucked tremolo from Beathawk, and the piano from Marseille. For the drums, I used Linn Samples for the kicks, snare, and tom, and acoustic hats and cymbals from Sounds of KSHMR 4.
After adjusting all the sounds in Koala standalone, mixing them down in their respective busses, and recording the final product, it was off to Logic for the mastering stage. And voila, we got "Crystals in the Disco".
Thank you @dreamcartel for the permission to sample your work. This project turned out magnificently!
Anyways, cheers and enjoy.
