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.
Friend wants to buy an iPad...
A friend of mine has decided to take the plunge on an iPad after watching my work with iOS musicking. He was waiting to see if iPads might arrive with the Apple event this past week, but alas, no new iPads. I believe from the other thread that they will arrive next month? He doesn't want to sink a lot of money into a Pro until he is sure that iOS musicking will work for him, so he's looking for a non-Pro version. What is a good short term strategy? Perhaps he can pick up an iPad 2018 for cheap before new models arrive next month? Or just wait what the new lineup brings? I'm terrible with keeping up with the latest hardware, but I know many of you are experts with this stuff, so I'm asking on my friend's behalf. Thank you for any advice you can give!
