Today’s major 3.1 update to award-winning iOS audio and MIDI platform Audiobus brings powerful new features for working with Audio Units and audio hardware.
The free update makes it easy and fun to use compatible Audio Units as MIDI sources and processors, opening up a wide range of new creative possibilities: Audio Unit sequencers, arpeggiators, chord filters, quantizers, modulators and other MIDI tools can now be effortlessly integrated into Audiobus workflows.
Additional support for full-screen Audio Unit views and factory presets make it even easier to work with Audio Units on iOS.
The update also adds the ability to route the individual outputs of apps and Audio Units to multi-channel audio hardware, or send audio to the built-in headphone socket and USB audio hardware simultaneously. And, the addition of Bluetooth MIDI device support makes wireless workflows easy.
It’s never been easier to integrate external audio gear and the extensive offering of iOS music apps, and with Audiobus 3.1 the iPad and iPhone are truly first-class citizens in the studio or on the stage.
Here’s the full list of changes in Audiobus 3.1:
• Audio Unit MIDI out and MIDI effects. Now Audio Units can be put in the MIDI Input and Effect positions.
