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.

LoopyPro better MIDI sync than AudioBus ?

I am currently evaluating Loopy Pro. Although I am usually not working with loops, I’m pretty impressed with the functionality so far. Specially the MIDI controller functionality is tempting for me. Here is an important question:
Is the MIDI clock synchronisation in Loopy Pro more accurate and stable than in AudioBus (AB3 is already good at this)? I notice that Loopy Pro seems to track small tempo changes of incoming clock slower than AB3. For me this is good, because it means less jitter. But I’m interested to hear your experiences and opinions about this?

    Loopy Pro is in many ways the successor to Audiobus 3. Even if one doesn’t do looping, the mixer is more full featured, one can had sliders and buttons and knobs and dials to control AUs and external devices. And the way it manages cpu when you mute channels is helpful on devices (like mine) whose cpu is not great.

    There has been a lot of refinement of Loopy Pro’s midi clock handling. My understanding is that Loopy’s sync should be at least as good as AB3’s but we probably need @michael to confirm.

    What you say is very helpful. Looks very much I will go for this. I was already very pleased when I was granted another 7 day evaluation period. Loopy Pro feels very optimised for live playing and jamming - my preferred ways of music making.
