Audiobus & Me: A Love Story

I was interviewed by Synthtopia, following the announcement of Apple approving Audiobus. Details about the features in Audiobus have been trickling out for months, but this interview tries to bring them all together and explain what Audiobus will do for musicians.

Since Audiobus is a framework, relying on other apps to support it before it has any use, I try to highlight the enthusiasm I've seen from developers:

"Although I cannot mention specific apps, I can say I’ve seen developers’ reactions to Audiobus. Your favorite recorder app will support Audiobus. It doesn’t matter which! They will all support it.

Even fucking fart apps are going to want to support Audiobus.

This sort of technology gets every developer excited. This is a new frontier and they want to be a part of it. More importantly, you’re going to demand it! Just like MIDI and AudioCopy/Paste have become standard, Audiobus will be an expectation of all professional music apps."

- Me

This turned out to be prophetic! The interview was done on Thursday, before Moog announced their support, and just yesterday Funkbox announced their integration as well! In the days since the Apple approval, the Audiobus team has been flooded with new interest. They are now up to over 500 developers who have signed up for the Audiobus SDK.

This is also a dual interview with developer Sebastian Dittman, if you're at all interested in that.

Great pic of you, Tim! I saved it, like a true mom!
Very cool, I hope the interview brings more recognition!

IK Multimedia won't support it. But then again they are completely out of touch when it comes to iOS software and it's uses/users (although they claim to be pioneers blablabla when it comes to iOS music software).

Should have warned us- maybe I should get dressed!

Cant wait! I think Tims mom should be in the next video. Preferably spouting profanities for good measure.
