When I saw that Moog's Filtatron went on sale I immediately checked the update history to see if it finally got Audiobus.
Update: Shortly after this post went up, Filtatron was updated with Audiobus and even JACK!
What's new in Filtatron v1.2:
- Audiobus and JACK support, for total integration with your other audio apps! Filtatron can act as a source, a destination, or a filter for audio from other compatible apps.
- MIDI mapping for almost every parameter! Use hardware controllers or external sequencers to control Filtatron remotely. Check the MIDI menu on the 'About' page.
- Share files from the Samples directly to SoundCloud
- Now supports both Landscape and Portrait orientation on iPad
- New full-screen artwork for iPhone 5
Moog's Amos Gaynes wrote in with a tip for using Filtatron in the Audiobus Effect slot. Remember to turn up the "Line In" knob, because Filtatron is treating Audiobus input as if it were an external hardware source. You won't hear anything until you tell it to listen to the Line In. This allows you to mix the Audiobus source with Filtatron's own internal oscillator to taste.
Reader Bluelion shared this video, of working with Filtatron in Ableton Live with MIDI over WIFI. He has some great tips here, and even discovered a minor (but confusing) bug with MIDI CCs. The audio levels on this are all over the place, so keep your hand on the volume slider!
Rheyne combines his coffee table with his new lightning setup for an intimate jam.
Live looping with USB controllers, iOS devices, and Ableton Live. All loops recorded live, nothing was pre-recorded. Lighting is controlled entirely by the instruments with Max for Live and an Enttec DMXIS.
Camera #2 was intended to provide a better view of what's going on under the table, but the table legs were blocking a couple of the lighting fixtures. Hopefully it still gives a good idea of what's going on underneath, as well as a better view of my monkey pajama pants and socks.

Troika Labs have released Vectorscope, a unique oscilloscope for looking at the stereo field.
Vectorscope iTunes Description:
Vectorscope is the perfect tool to analyze your stereo material. Whether you are a producer, mixer, recording artist, or student, we believe that Vectorscope will soon become an indispensable tool for all your stereo audio needs!
Vectorscope accepts audio coming either from an external iOS-compatible audio device or from an Audiobus-compatible app. Choosing one mode or the other couldn't be easier: When the app is connected to Audiobus, the audio will be routed automatically thru it, otherwise the chosen audio source will be external — that simple!
