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.
@brambos how about a script that can save 8x CC values and create snapshots. Then morph between Snapshots. Maybe using note input. 128 snapshots would be ace.
Was it you looking for one big button to sweep from a lp to hp filter a while back?
Wonder if it's doable with mosaic ?
I’m working on something like that right now. Four Pads to store four snapshots, then morph between them using the quadrants of the XY pad.
Bram (or someone else) can probably do a hell of a better job of it than me, and faster. I will not be in the least put out if someone beats me to it!
Piece of cake.
If there’s someone out there who genuinely would use this app to create things, or to learn more about MIDI and programming, but honestly can’t afford it, please PM me. I have a promo code, but would like it to go to someone it would really help.
You’re a gem, Wim. Your patches and enthusiasm combined with my desire to support whatever Bram does has sold me on this.
www.busboffins.com is available....
Yea, maybe/probably buy using AUM’s lp/hp and doing a creative mapping with an array or something...
I’ve not actually picked this monster up yet! Shhhhhh... 🤫
First of all, this app on incredible and I thank you for making it. One thing I’m trying to figure out how to use it for is to launch clips for an Ableton like set. If anyone has any ideas you’d be the savior of my workflow. All I can think of is the AUM file player since LP-5 drives me insane with the crashing but that clutter seems like a nightmare.
For anyone having issues with the comma not showing up(I am as well) one workaround I realized is to copy a comma to your clipboard and just paste it.
Made a simple video of how to use it (no talking or subtitles, so watch the knobs..). Hope it will help you to get some sound.
Interesting. Although you could already use the default “mix” layout and use the shift button for effectively doubling the number of pads.
Ugh. I have run up against my mathematical / logical limitations. I’m trying to morph between four values based on a point in an XY pad.
Let’s say I have four values: 80, 20, 18, 100.
But ... how do I figure out the value if I’m at various positions like 10/82, 100/100, 100/80?
Maybe I’m just too tired to see it, but I think I just forgot way too much of my High School geometry (or more likely I was just staring at Debbie Voltz in those tight sweaters way too much).
@NoonienS Your so kind young Sir a thousand thanks for the video will give it a go now and report back.
This app is not just great tool for doing MIDI stuff - while reading manual i realized that it is great entry point for understanding basics of coding for non-coders ... More i'm getting into this app, more amazed i am, not just as user but as coder in first place - outstanding job ! Amazingly designed, perfect balance between festures and easy to understand structure !
For now - app of the year !
@NoonienS Finally I’m getting some sound, haven’t quite got my head around editing the sequencer yet that will come in time. Can see the power of Mozaic now just from this one preset alone. Many thanks for this.
I haven't picked up the app yet, but have been reading through the manual.
That’s great praise! Thanks!
This is pretty amazing, but I have no idea what the limitations are with this beast.
I would love to attempt to build a midi splitter / plus individual pitch bend for each midi channel output.
So I could play a chord, it spits out 16 midi channels, and I can tell midi channel 1 to pitch bend down a semitone over 3 seconds. Midi channel 2 pitch bend down 4 semitones over 2 seconds etc etc - across all midi channels.
My interest lies in chords/notes doing certain tasks, like arpeggiators with different speeds and channel sends for each note in any chord, with probabilty etc.
Great to hear! Can understand if the editing is not super intuitive. Had to do it the way it was posssible with the tools available in Mozaic (which is a lot already). @brambos , in a future update it would help if it would become possible to latch pads to different colours + some kind of label per pad..
Well, this is a really nice surprise.
I genuinely feel that I don’t need any more tools on iOS to achieve my goals and wasn’t planning to buy any — but it also feels fateful that if on the very day that I’m actually getting paid fairly to perform music with code (https://algomech.com/2019/artists/udagan/ !!) that something like this is released, I should certainly re-invest some of the performance fee in it!
"LabelPad" would be really handy - label can be displayed inside pad, top centered ..
It will help in combination with shift create more complex app with menu navigation like on Korg Electribe (like Shift+pad 0 -> jump to layout with per pad note knobs, Shift+pad 1 -> jump to layout with per pad volume knobs, etc...)
Thanks for checking it out. I thought that was the way too, but I’m not getting the expected results.
This is a slightly more complex mathematical problem than it appears on first sight, because each value is made up out of the weighted influence of all 4 corner-values. I've tried solving it using Pythagoras, but I'm not getting the exactly correct values either.
I have just forwarded the question to the mathematical community on the interwebs. Let's see what the true boffins come up with
Oooohhh. In the big leagues now! Thanks for doing that! I asked around at the local beer joint and even the bartender was stumped. Didn’t know where else to turn.
Can’t wait to hear back!
@rrc2soft Thanks after watching the video and downloaded the script from the AB Wiki managed to get the Strummer working, must say a great piece of work having a lot of creativity and fun with it thanks.
Gotta love the internet. The trick is to approach it as a 3 dimensional calculation rather than a 2D plane, and use bilinear interpolation. Here’s the solution:
