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.

Windmills

King of Digital, Pure Piano, and iFretless. Multiple instances of each, with different effects, EQ, panning, etc. Only 4 tracks of MIDI data.

Whenever we drive from Chicago to Nashville, we pass through a huge wind turbine farm. They are quite impressive to look at. Seems like a great idea, right?

  • Nice interplay between the MIDI tracks.

    The like the way that the SoundCloud “Audio Display” graphical timeline provides clues that a new and (or repeated) section is coming.

    This approach to layering makes me think of Philip Glass and his ostinato-based orchestra works. It’s a style that can induce a trace state for me and if the instruments chosen are good it’s a lovely ride.

    For 30 years I took a commute over the Altamont Pass (where the Stone’s provided their fateful free concert using the Hell’s Angels for security). The Altamount is littered with new and decaying Windmills.

    @McD I have sort of a love/hate thing with Philip Glass. I love him for the first few minutes, then he just keeps on repeating himself. Einstein On The Beach is cool if you like to count. Funny story… years ago we stopped into a piano store and I started playing Metamorphosis on a really nice grand piano. Really put on a show, swaying back and forth like I was in a trance. Making a big deal about the right hand crossovers. We attracted a small group of curiosity seekers watching me like I actually knew what I was doing. When we left, Karen said… I hope you had fun! I did, actually.

    I’m glad to have seen the Stones back in the 70s. They were touring with that giant lotus-shaped stage. I forget the tour name, but they were probably the loudest band I ever heard. They had a giant inflatable penis. Bill Wyman was still with them, and Ron Wood had just started. Got Live If You Want It was the second album I ever bought. My first was Spirit of 67 by Paul Revere and the Raiders. We saw Mark Lindsey a few years ago at the Bolingbrook Summer Jubilee. He was playing with Flo and Eddie!

    Anyhow, this piece was something I did about a year ago and forgot about. It was originally titled Body Bag. I thought it had too much stuff, so I deleted most of it and focused on a few MIDI tracks using 3 apps with assorted effects. I had nothing better to do, so WTF.

    Peace, bro.

    Edit - I really enjoy chatting with you.

  • Loved this one, the ostinatos with the key modulations sound great!

    I’d like to hear the vocals without the instruments… forward and reverse.
    I’m a @Paulieworld completist.

    It’s fun to reminisce with someone that recalls Paul Revere and the Raiders
    and knows “he” was the organist (Vox or Farfisa?). “Kicks” was a great pop tune.

    I’ll get right on that!

    They were my first rock and roll band. If I recall, he played a Vox Jaguar Combo organ. The white keys were black, the black keys were white. They sounded terrible, but Paul Revere was truly a showman. I actually owned one in high school, but traded it for my first bass. They had some great songs. Don’t forget Hungry, Good Thing, Just Like Me, and so many more. I miss bands that wore uniforms!

    It’s starting to rain here, so I’m heading in. Peace, bro!
