Audiobus 3

iTunes Description:

Open up new worlds of creative music making possibilities with Audiobus, the app that lets you use your music apps together, just like virtual cables.

Send live audio or MIDI from one Audiobus-compatible app to another: add effects on top of your favourite synth, use your favourite step sequencer to drive the whole lot, and record it all in your favourite DAW, sampler or looper. Plug in a MIDI keyboard, run it through an arpeggiator or a key quantizer, and record the result in your DAW, or drive several different sound generators with a keyboard splitter. The possibilities are endless.

Then save your setup in a preset to be restored with one touch later on.

With a completely new MIDI routing system, support for Apple's new Audio Unit Extensions standard, a new built-in mixer, and huge new workflow improvements, Audiobus 3 represents a big step forward for mobile music making.

Audiobus has a rich community of over 900 great compatible apps, including:

- Korg Gadget
- GarageBand
- Launchpad
- Animoog
- Loopy HD
- Cubasis
- Amplitube

and many more. See the full list at

Midiflow Splitter for Audiobus 3

iTunes Description:

If you play your synth apps with an external keyboard, Midiflow Splitter is an essential tool for you. This MIDI effect app for Audiobus 3 lets you create split and layer configurations in an easy but powerful way. Thanks to Audiobus State Saving, everything can be saved and recalled when your show is about to start.

+ Add any number of split points
+ Assign resulting key zones to synth apps
+ Transpose each synth app in octaves
+ Choose which controllers (sustain, pitch-bend, etc.) should be active for each synth app
+ Solo sounds
+ Supports multiple keyboards

NOTE: This app requires Audiobus 3. Create at least two MIDI pipelines with your keyboard as input and different synth apps as output. Then insert this app into the effect ports.

Midiflow Splitter shows all synth apps as rows above the input keyboard. For each synth, you can select in which zone it should be active. The zones of the keyboard are defined by split points. Move, add, or remove split points to adjust the zones. If you are using multiple keyboards, they will show up with independent split point selectors.

An octave shift can be applied to each synth in your configuration. This is useful if you have assigned a sound to a zone on the lower part of the keyboard, but still want to trigger high notes. Just shift the notes by a couple of octaves, and you're done. You can also activate or deactivate controllers like sustain or pitch-bend for each synth app individually. That way, your controllers only affect the sounds you really want to manipulate, and keep the others unchanged.

After you have set up your split and layer configuration, you might need to tweak a synth's sound again. By activating "solo", all other synth apps will be deactivated so that you have the whole keyboard for this one sound. This is very handy if you have arranged the sound in a layer and quickly want to mute the other sounds for a moment.

Midiflow Monitor

iTunes Description:

Do you want to see what MIDI is doing in your Audiobus setup? Just add Midiflow Monitor into one or more MIDI effect ports and the app will print what is going through. This can help you find problems or just understand how MIDI works. This app is a must-have and available for free.

+ Track MIDI commands when the app is in the foreground or background
+ Use multiple instances of this effect in Audiobus
+ Use Split View/Slide Over to display the monitor next to other apps

NOTE: This app requires Audiobus 3. Insert it into one or more MIDI effect ports to monitor the data going through the respective pipelines.

Midiflow Transposer

iTunes Description:

This simple MIDI effect app for Audiobus 3 allows you to transpose notes. You can shift by octaves and half-tones. This is useful if you want play an external keyboard in a different tone. You can also use it to create harmonies, i.e. create a second voice in an interval. Since this app is so essential, you can get it for free.

+ Shift notes in half-tone steps
+ Shift notes in octave steps
+ Use multiple instances of this effect in Audiobus

NOTE: This app requires Audiobus 3. Insert it into one or more MIDI effect ports to affect the data going through the respective pipelines.

Midiflow Limiter

iTunes Description:

This MIDI effect app for Audiobus 3 is a filter and remapper for note velocities. Filter out notes that are too loud or too quiet, or remap them to different values. Use multiple instances to create velocity layers, which trigger different sounds based on the notes' velocity.

+ Specify a velocity range to filter out notes
+ Use a curve to remap velocities
+ Remap to a fixed velocity
+ Use multiple instances of this effect in Audiobus

NOTE: This app requires Audiobus 3. Insert it into one or more MIDI effect ports to affect the data going through the respective pipelines.

The range selector at the top allows you to specify the velocity of notes that can pass. All notes with velocities outside of that range will be filtered out. You can see in real-time what note velocities are coming in, so adjusting the range according to notes you play on a keyboard or generate with a sequencer is very easy.

Midiflow Limiter can be added multiple times to an Audiobus configuration. If you are using an external keyboard, you can build velocity layers. Just create two routes in Audiobus with the keyboard as a source and two synths as destinations. Then add Midiflow Limiter as an effect in both routes. You can then apply different velocity ranges for both synths, and only notes with a matching velocity will trigger their sounds.

The velocities of notes that have not been filtered out in the previous step can be remapped with a so-called velocity curve. The horizontal axis represents all possible values for incoming velocities. The curve determines the remapping function used to modify the velocities. Use the four handles to adjust the curve.

Velocity remapping has various applications. You can make a piano sound a lot "stronger" with a curve like above, as louder notes are triggered "earlier" in terms of force applied to the keys. A curve with the bow to the other side makes it "softer". Other curves can increase or reduce the range of velocities.

If you want to get rid of the velocity information in the notes, you can remap them to one fixed value. This corresponds to a curve that looks like a horizontal line.
