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.
Some positive thinking....
First Id like to thank the creator of Audiobus for making such a killer app that has really improved the IOS experience and for giving us a forum to talk about IOS music making...Three Cheers for Audiobus and the man behind it!!
Ok, Since I've joined this community, both in spirit and in actuality, I'm driven mainly by one thing...a vision of the future, of progress, of where this current journey will lead us.
I see a lot of gratefulness but also lots of complaints. We as humans tend to pick apart that which is...deconstruct it and point out the flaws. I think we yearn for better, for more, but in the process we look for what wrong first rather than what's right.
So I'm hoping together we can think about two things even more..... focus more on what's right about what we have now...IE amazing technology, amazing ideas and tangible results brought to fruition by great minds. Then skip ahead. Pretend the limitations we all now have are not there. Draw conclusions on what can be, what will be instead of just what is.....look more at the bigger picture further ahead because this is going to make it so that many, many people, who could never afford to buy expensive synths or recording hardware or even expensive software, able to finally record album quality music and finally afford to get into the music production game like we already have.....not to mention what it an do for those of us already lucky enough to have a ton of options that will allow us to change our scenery where we create at the drop of a hat.
I see the incredible potential of this platform and our desire to make good music. But I'm limited by what I can do by myself. So I try to gather great minds and people that don't procrastinate and actually do, so that I may further the cause, move things along and make more potential a reality. Along the way I'm often met with much resistance. Many negative thoughts get thrown across my path, because most of us lack the resources to do anything....alone. That's why it's probably wiser to join forces, pool resources, move things along with more positive thinking and action than to just sit in our bubble and say "that will never work" out of frustration and lack of power.
Together we can speed this along, and benefit from this...and maybe make this corner of the world a better place for us and our friends, family and children.
What started this train of thought for me was Joe Rogan and Elon Musk's think tank discussion on Joe Rogan's show. They both tend to look ahead in the future and try to see a bigger picture than that which is right in front of our faces and obvious.
I love this place and the people here....so please excuse my little attempt at a pep talk and positivity , if it at all ruffles you the wrong way. Maybe my newness and lack of experience gives me the luxury of a "the sky is the limit" kind of attitude, but I'm looking for people to team up with, to collaborate with, to work hard with, to promote more awareness of our great corner of the WWW and possibly , together, find ways to work with developers and maybe even apple, to speed this whole process up and show the world what amazing things can be done. on IOS devices. In the end, to me it's all about us making more great music that the world can enjoy...but I'm also a tech hound, hungry for what's next....and to me it looks huge...monumental even.I'm not alone in these thoughts am i?
