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.
Digitakt and Loopy HD - The magic sampler+looper combination?
Playing a bit with Loopy HD today and going through the list of possible MIDI control destinations, I suddenly asked myself:
Couldn't the Digitakt control Loopy HD in the most complex ways, making it the most sophisticated looper running in (MIDI clock) sync with the Digitakt?
Digitakt has eight midi tracks and it can send all kinds of MIDI controllers, even as p-locks, and almost anything you want.
It could even act as a beat-synced recording workflow sequencer, automating everything so you don't even have to push a single knob in order to record a complete arrangement or beatboxing layered song in Loopy ... let your creativity flow.
Loopy would not only add stereo tracks to the Digitakt but adding a little DJ mixer with crossfader will make a low-cost Dj-style setup not unlike some Octatrack setups.
And attach your iPhone to the free USB or h/w MIDI port to let the remaining free Digitakt MIDI tracks play additional instruments like AudioLayer samples, Ravenscroft piano, synths, EPs, maybe even hosted in apeMatrix and modulating AUv3 knobs by its MIDI-beat-syncable LFOs.
The DT could sample from external gear, Loopy could record from the iPhone or from the DT to free up tracks.
Just a few ideas to inspire you guys.
