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.
