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.
What Audio Interface?
So I'm making the leap away from the iPad sandbox.
I'm tying to figure out what I need in terms of audio interface.
Below is the list of gear I've accumulated. Note: I'm not really interested in recording a live band. Not interested in playing live, either. I just need to reliably get iOS creations into a DAW.
• iPad (w/CCK)
• external midi keyboard (Akai MPK mini2, w/USB)
• Korg NanoKontrol bluetooth keyboard
• iRig Pads midi controller
• MacBook Air (probably running Logic)
• guitar, bass, condenser mic
What interface do I need?
