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.

    So, I built this simple script on Mozaic (my very first script, so every single suggestion/critique is more than welcome 😊). It can be used both, with the internal sequencer On (and host playing) and with the internal sequencer Off (and host stopped).
    I still want to change/add some things, but I cannot figure out how to do it yet (I'm really really noobie on scripts/codes, but I'm getting into it now, really interesting world).
    Of course, this is meant to be used alongside with a MIDI controller that sends out CC messages.

    I have AUM set to 48khz, since my whole setup is running in 48khz ADAT.
    When I load HammerHead in AUM it all sounds repitched, when setting AUM to 44.1khz all sounds as it should.

    I just ran a device in 44100 and one in 48000 side by side - and tried both with internal audio and external interface - and they sounded absolutely identical in all 4 instances, so my engine seems to respond to samplerates correctly.

    Could you please confirm it's a reproducible/repeatable issue on your end?

    Explain: ran a device @44 & @48, do you mean 2 iPads?

    It occurs when the ADAT clock source is set to external (RME babyface pro is set to sync to external ADAT clock @48).
    When I run the audiointerface with internal clock source the behavior is normal.

    It might be something at my end then, or related to AUM.

    I have noticed that Ableton live 11/ Bitwig 4, both exports and read it’s probability data in a midi file, it seems that LK can read this\these data also but not export it… @sinosoidal

    Midi export could be …. Nice..
    and doubling down on the Record Automation thing.. (DrumLad)..

    Nice… Thanks..

  • Ableton Link ?

  • Is there any way to mute a channel on the master out but not the multibus out?

    That will be possible in 1.0.1. I will be submitting that to Apple today.

    Doesn't need it unless you're using it in standalone. It's not planned for the standalone: https://forum.audiob.us/discussion/comment/967738/#Comment_967738

    muy obrigado!

  • This is great!.

    @brambos would you mind commenting on these suggestions?. Stellar work, HH is so much fun.👏🙌

    Loving Hammerhead, instant gratification. @brambos just does it right.
    I do have a couple of requests that I miss and believe would be very useful.

    • Decoupling sequence data from sounds in a preset, so you can try out different sounds/kits once you got a sequence going.
    • I’d really like to have some “global” adjustments per kit piece. Like have a shorter decay on a kick, or tune down a sample without having to dial it on each step. In short, provide that control on a “kit piece” level. We have that in Ruismaker (decay, tune, etc).
    • Sort of related to the above… being able to save and recall individual kit pieces, like save a custom sample kick (goes with the previous point if you could modify some aspects of the sound), and have like “favorites” that you could go through.
    • Finally it’d be amazing if instead of choosing classic, user samples or drum synth we could combine them (i understand this one might be huge).

    Congratulations on a grrreat app!

    Yes, for now none of these are in the cards as they would require quite fundamental changes to how the internal architecture works, even though they might seem relatively simple from a UI perspective ;)

    Thanks

  • Version 1.0.1 is now available:

    Updates, additions and fixes:

    • Instrument and mixer panels sometimes didn't show correctly when first opening
    • Retain loop/choke settings when replacing user WAV
    • Audition button in the Sounds panel
    • Thicker, clearer lines in parameter lanes
    • Sample StartPt. position 8 now triggers a "soft choke" on currently playing sound
    • Sometimes the iOS Home Swipe bar would interfere with the tempo controls
    • Channel Levels are now disconnected from Multiout channels:

      • So you can now mute your multi-out channels from the main mix
      • You can now use multi-out for effect sends
      • Use multi-out for New York style parallel compression
    • Standalone app responds more gracefully to system interruptions (e.g. timers, phone calls, etc.)

    • Parameter Lane "crosstalk" glitch solved
    • MIDI Output responds correctly to probability/chance settings

    Don't forget to leave a review if you're enjoying Hammerhead :-)

    Great update cheers @brambos 👍

  • @brambos
    Audition button in the Sounds panel Is great
    Can see much better in the view panel now
    Sweet

  • Superb update @brambos !! 👏🏼🙌🏼

  • Most excellent

  • Eh, needs more random algorithms. Won’t buy until fixed

    Two quick diagrams for anyone who is experimenting with mixing different pattern divisions...

    Summary:

    • Setting 12 Divisions will give you perfect 8th triplets.
    • Combining several of the irregular divisions (second image) can generate some incredible jittery syncopation - for example, try combining multiple closed hihat rhythms on 3 lanes of 1/13, 1/9 and 1/7 divisions.
    • Combine irregular divisions with swing for even more exaggerated shuffle timing.

  • Thank You Bram ++

    These really are superb, mate.

    Lovely diagrams!. Thanks!.
    It’s so nice to find these little nuggets. Gotta love this forum! 🙏

    Choosing random algorithms manually is so 2020. Hammerhead chooses its random algos randomly.

    1.01 update

  • Does HH have predesignated CC assignments? I thought I read so a few days ago, but I may have been mistaken. Rtfm already ;)

    They are there but they’re “unlisted”. I automatically make them for all AU parameters as a fallback. But since they only work in the AU anyway I recommend using AU Parameters whenever possible since most hosts support those these days ;)

    If you need them I will make a list.

    Could I trouble you for that list? I’d like to make and share some controllers for HH. So in order for it to work for everyone I’ll need to use the default mappings 🙂
