A Tasty Pixel Loopy

A Tasty Pixel has released version 1.4 of its Loopy live-looping app that lets musicians and tinkerers alike rapidly build multi-layered musical pieces by recording or importing looped layers of sound.

A Tasty Pixel’s recording and loop-layering iPad and iPhone app Loopy today gets a significant update, bringing loop effects to the app’s already extensive feature set. The new effects, reverse and decay, introduce new possibilities for musical expression and have been the features most frequently requested by users.

“Loopy lets anyone with an iPad or iPhone create music in an exciting and novel way: By recording and looping layers of music,” said A Tasty Pixel founder and developer Michael Tyson. “Both Loopy’s hobbyist and professional users love it for the creativity boost it gives them, and I think they’ll love the things they can do with these new effects.”

Developed by the same developer that produced Audiobus, the revolutionary inter-app audio routing platform, Loopy already works with Audiobus’ large and growing community of apps, allowing users to record and loop instrument and synthesizer apps, or apply an extensive variety of live effects to recordings.

Other features in the new update include a number of new actions that can be toggled by MIDI controllers, several significant improvements to the recording workflow, and enhanced latency compensation.

Loopy for iPhone is available to purchase for $2.99 USD. Loopy HD for iPad is currently on sale for $3.99 USD (regular $7.99 USD).

Audiobus buffer preferences

A Tasty Pixel has updated its Audiobus inter-app audio routing system for iOS to version 1.0.2.

With Audiobus, the revolutionary new inter-app audio routing system, you can connect your Audiobus-compatible music apps together, just like virtual cables.

With a simple and clean interface, easily connect the output of one Audiobus-compatible app into the input of another. Use Audiobus to play a synthesizer live into a looper or multi-track recorder, or use one app to manipulate the live output of another.

Changes in Audiobus v1.0.2

  • New preferences pane allowing users to choose between a 512 and 256 frame hardware buffer size:
    • Choose 512 if you’re experiencing stuttering audio.
    • Choose 256 if you want the fastest response time for live play.
    • Only iPad 3, 4 and iPhone 5 default to 256 now, all other devices to 512.
  • Apps are now sorted alphabetically in the input/output/effects pop-over windows.
  • New status bar in the Audiobus main screen, showing current hardware buffer size and battery status.
  • Some minor bug fixes.

Audiobus is now available from the App Store for $9.99 USD.

Audiobus app-to-app audio for iPad & iPhone by A Tasty Pixel and Audanika

Audiobus

A Tasty Pixel in partnership with Audanika has launched Audiobus, a revolutionary new app for iPad and iPhone set to reinvent iOS music making with its ability to connect music apps together, just as cables connect audio equipment.

Support for the app is already built into such leading iOS music apps as Rebirth, JamUp, NLog, Sunrizer and more, with over 750 more developers registered to implement Audiobus in their own music apps.

“Audiobus is going to fundamentally change the way people make music on the iPad and iPhone,” said Audiobus developer Michael Tyson. “The app works like virtual audio cables, turning a platform of isolated apps into a community of pluggable components that work together seamlessly, far greater than the sum of their parts. Nothing like this has even been attempted before.”

The app is the result of a twelve-month collaboration between A Tasty Pixel, developer of iOS audio apps Loopy and Loopy HD, and Audanika, developer of SoundPrism and SoundPrism Pro. Loopy, Loopy HD, and SoundPrism Pro have been placed on sale for the launch.

With a clean and simple user interface, the app allows users to easily connect the output of one Audiobus-compatible app into the input of another, playing a synthesizer live into a looper or multi-track recorder, or using one app to manipulate the live output of another.

“It’s what so many iOS music makers want: to be able to use multiple apps at the same time, mixing together the audio from each of them into a single project,” wrote leading musicians’ gear website Music Radar recently, dubbing the app “groundbreaking”.

Audiobus is launching today together with eleven other leading iOS music apps which have added support for the inter-app audio routing platform: Propellerheads’ Rebirth for iPad, JamUp and JamUp Pro, Sunrizer Synth, SoundPrism Pro, Loopy and Loopy HD, MultiTrack DAW, NLog Synth Pro and NLog MIDI Synth, sir Sampleton, and Funkbox.

Twenty-five additional noteworthy developers, including Moog and Intua, have been invited to the developer program and have already begun to add Audiobus support, prior to a public launch of the Audiobus Software Development Kit (SDK). Over 750 additional developers have signed up to add Audiobus support to their apps once the Audiobus SDK is made public.

Audiobus is now available on the App Store for $9.99 USD.
