A bunch of music app developers got together at WWDC to put their apps to use in a developer supergroup jam!
Collaborative jam session between the developers of guitarism, ThumbJam / DrumJam, Arpeggionome, Polychord and TC-11. We were all in San Francisco during WWDC 2013 and decided to take advantage of the opportunity! Thanks to Sebastian Dittman (of SoundPrism / Audiobus fame) for shooting the footage!
Rheyne only just found out about Nave last night and immediately put it to good use in this looping jam with Nave on 2 iPads!
Live looping with analog keyboards, USB controllers, iOS devices, and Ableton Live, with heavy focus on the Waldorf's "Nave" app. One is being played live directly on the glass, and the other is being triggered by a KMI QuNexus, with the tilt and pressure sensors controlling the wave position and spectrum of the wavetable. This jam barely scratches the surface of this powerful synth, and I'll definitely be featuring it more often.
IK Multimedia's VocaLive vocal processing apps have been updated with Audiobus, but it is unclear if they can be used as an effect, output, or just as an input. They are not listed on the official Audiobus Compatible Apps page, which may mean Audiobus requires an additional In-App Purchase. It is now listed as an Input, Effect, and Output slot compatible app.
What's new in VocaLive v1.6:
Use VocaLive with other audio apps in real time.
Added selectable input channel for multitrack audio devices
After over a year in development, Waldorf and Tempo Rubato bring us the next Pro-level iOS synth! Nave is here and on sale!
Waldorf Nave iTunes Description:
The Nave sound engine includes two novel Wavetable oscillators, leaving every previous attempt in wavetable synthesis far behind. The spectrum of a sound can be transposed independently of its pitch. The waves are being rendered periodically to noisy. Especially sounds with an accent on formants can be reproduced easily, which made us integrate a speech synthesizer for the easy creation of wavetables.
The clearly structured UI invites both beginners and advanced users to experiment, and the large display of the iPad makes Wavetable creation and editing a blast. Besides Speech Synthesis, Wavetables can also be made by analysing audio files. Further stretching, rotating and shifting in spectral domain allows Wavetables to be further refined or distorted.

We all know Tempo Rubato's Rolf Wöhrmann writes elegant and processor efficient code, from his long history with NLog, but just for confirmation readers are already reporting that it is indeed running fine on iPad 2s! Andre commented below that his iPad 2 is running Nave, Funkbox, and Echopad in Audiobus just fine! I think I hear iPad 5 sales plummeting from 3 months away.
