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.
Looking forward to watching this evolve. Sound is what I’ve come to expect from MSX who also make my fav Maschine Expansions. Their ability speaks for itself.
I have Bm3 for my own samples so it isn’t necessary imo but I’m sure it’ll arrive at some point. Great V1 guys.
Thanks for posting. Problem is, I don’t like being tied down to a certain or few genres.
They did say sampling and importing will be coming but yeah, that’s just MSXII’s vibe. I think this was always geared more towards boom bap and lofi type stuff
Gotcha, not truly familiar with the dev. Either way, with all the fx out there I’m sure I could butcher what they offer.
Yeah that’s a big part of how I’m using it right now. It has a chromatic mode that lets me break away from the whole sample and I’ve been running all that through effects chains in aum and just recording newly created loops. I will say that the Elliott Garage slicing app sounds like it’s coming out in the next day or so so you may just want to wait for that to come out since it’s all about sampling and slicing with your own samples
@Fingolfinzzz did someone indicate that sEGments is ready to drop? Didn't see that.
...and ‘certain daws’... so far AUM, NS2, BM3, Cubasis 3... pretty ‘certain’ it is all of them.
Last thing i need is to get hooked on a new feed of sample packs... but if sample import comes I expect I will jump in and probably end up buying the lot. Disappointing release for me, if I’m honest. Not quite the ‘BM3 sampler as AUv3’ that I was hoping for. I reckon it will do well though.
A pitty Samplist isn’t AUv3...
Ok. Bought and bought aLso 7 packs. Nasty bugs. Here is a short video.
Background audio enabled in standalone and also set latency to 1024 in both chomplr and aum.
IPad pro 12.9 2020 iOS 13.5.5
Video from YT removed after contacting the dev.
if you face the same bug pls report to them so they will look into fix this.
Its Audiokit, strap yourself in they will be looking in to a lot of fixes.
You can always post a video as unlisted on YouTube, which means that only those with a link can view. Maybe u did it like that anyway, but it is good to know for these situations, so worth mentioning here.
Good tip @Gavinski. I didn't know about this. Next time I will do like this in order to not damage the dev (not my intention at all) and help the others that could face these bugs.
In the past this would have been an AKAI format CD-ROM With pre-sliced loops and accompanying MIDI files.
I don’t see the problem. They’re a sound design company trying to sell their sounds.
I think the confusion is because their previous two plugins (Fly Dirt and Fly Tape) tried to do something new on iOS.
This feels less ambitious - especially after what early teasers led us to believe, which we all thought would be an AUv3 slicing sampler.
Good luck to them, and I hope this introduces a new audience to their impressive sample library.
Bought to support!
Ok it’s buggy, crashy and showstoppery (beta testers?!?)
I wish he would something about the app size. 1,3GB is too ambitious for a little plugin with a handful of samples.
I hope this will get sample import.
Universal at some point
And zoomable in the waveforms to mark start and endpoint.
And the slider would be way(!!!) less responsive to even cut out a snare or so. (Something like a fine Tuning Mode we have on miRack or so)
Initial release 1.0 and way to go 💪🏼
I was expecting something different and innovative form this dev. For now I'll pass.
I subscribed all.
Yah that slider needs a fine tune mode for setting ranges, particularly given there is no time-stretching so to make stuff fit the tempo I want I have to slice things up finer.
The sample packs are cheap enough to be impulse buys and I do like to play with this retro modern cool beat boyee sound. The app feels like buying cheap comics as a kid and I enjoyed that well enough. Sample import would add nothing for me at this point as setting sample ranges is so clunky and the fx seem hard coded to an aesthetic that fits the library. sEGments is most probably going to be waaaay ahead of this in the AUv3 sampler department on release. So yah if you are not a fan of the sample library aesthetic, likely a very hard pass.
Toys vs professional.
By the way since I’m a compulsive buyer I’ve got almost all the packs but I feel like having koala AUv3 without all his import and slicing potential.
The background audio buzz you hear when switching apps actually kills me.
Can’t see actually a real daily usage (at least for my musical taste).
Yeah that slider needs to be fixed. I wish it would display a number of some sort as well to get a feel of how far I’ve moved it. It makes tuning and slicing a pain in the ass
The second time I tried to do something with it (namely something like a track) and again it totally crashed and i heard a strange noise through the speaker until I killed AUM. All start endpoints gone and so on....
Hmm 🤔 dont know if its useable atm. Needs some fixes and some more love
Oh yah, I will binge, live out my b-boy fantasies and move on, as usual.
Hmmm, I think my plan is to sample it straight into BM3, do extra BM3 chopping etc and then use sEGments in NS2.
A man with a plan. I think EG segment will be really really good. As a quick fix chompler will do
Nice! You our agent in the Twitter Zone?
Yup. Got some more love from the abyss
Good work David! Could I get you to talk to the bank for me?
