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.

apeMatrix, how to route audio to multiple hardware outputs?

Folks,

I am looking for help about routing audio to multiple hardware outputs in apeMatrix.

Say I want to route main stereo to hardware output 1&2 of a connected audio interface, then route the same signal summed to mono to hardware output 3 (stage monitor), how do I do that?

The audio matrix only shows one single audio destination at the leftmost column, I can switch this to output 1&2 OR to output 3.

This simple example could be solved by using audio matrix 1 and 2, but I have more complicated setups sending audio to multiple outputs to feed outboard processors where I need to independently address 6 hardware audio outputs plus stereo main output plus mono stage monitor output.

How can I do that with apeMatrix? Can I add hardware audio output columns to a matrix?

Thank you very much for your help :)

  • You can only send multiple out using multiple matrices and unfortunately there is a limit to the number of matrices currently, I would recommend using AUM for more controlled hardware output options.

  • Thank you very much Carnbot for confirming.

    I am already using AUM. My problem is that I need to use different audio interfaces in different locations with different audio output scenarios.

    At the moment I duplicate my AUM sessions to adapt to the different locations. I thought that I could feed the AUM outputs into another app via IAA to abstract my AUM sessions from the location specific output configurations.

    I am a keyboard player, my rig is AUM on iPad Pro 2020 with multiple MIDI keyboards. I have ~60 AUM sessions that need to adapt to those different locations, live and studio.

    I tried Audiobus but got stuck, then thought I could use apeMatrix. If someone has ideas about how I could solve that I would be very happy. Thanks in advance.

    have you looked at Keystage?

    KeyStage is a master controller, AUv3 host, and audio mixer app designed mainly for keyboard players. With KeyStage, you can simultaneously control any number of hardware and software instruments using any number of MIDI controllers in an organized way.

    Each project consists of sections (which corresponds to sections of a song). In each section you can change sounds and sound parameters of connected instruments, create complex splits and layers of your keyboard(s), change the functionalities of sliders/knobs/pedals of your MIDI controllers by creating advanced MIDI mappings, view PDF and JPG files (e.g. sheet music) and lyrics, and much more.

    +1 Keystage is a powerful powerful app for control of midi hardware

  • Thanks for your suggestions, appreciated. I tried Keystage as well as Camelot Pro a while ago. In the end I found AUM the most flexible and versatile solution.

    Also, Keystage as well as Camelot Pro would not solve my particular problem (adapt to various location-dependent audio output routing configurations).
