PSA: Don't update to iOS 12.4 if you use apps in AB output slot or IAA apps that use the mic.

New to Audiobus 3 had a newbie question

Hey all,

I've used Audiobus, Audiobus 2, and just purchased 3 last night. I'm familiar with the app but when I clicked input, I see "state" and "link" on some of the apps but I haven't been able to find info in the manual or online when I search. Can someone either post a link or a brief explanation? I'm running an iPad 3 (software version 9.3.5) and usually record into nanostudio but I also just purchased loopy. Are there any optimization tips for AB3?

    Hello and welcome :)

    State means that the app(s) support state saving , meaning that if you save the session in AB3 then next time you load it , the app(s) will restore their parameters :)
    Link means that the app supports Ableton Link sync method , which is way better than midi clock in iOS . The downside is you can’t start/stop all Linked apps at the same time ,unless they support Link v3 .
    I usually prefer IAAsync mode since it allows to start all apps at the exact time I press play ...

  • Thank you so much! Appreciate you taking the time to explain
