Readers gatearray, hoyas79, and Piotr all emailed to me (within minutes of each other) with news of Figure's Audiobus update! This update also brings SoundCloud exports and a new contest from Propellerhead!
What's new in 1.4:
SoundCloud Sharing - share your Figure tracks with access to Facebook, Twitter and more.
Introducing Audiobus support: Now you can stream live audio directly to other Audiobus-compatible apps!
Propellerhead and SoundCloud have teamed up put together a novel idea for a contest. Just exporting a song, via Figure's new SoundCloud sharing, means you're automatically entered into the drawing, but each listen counts as an individual lottery ticket. 1 song with 100 listens puts you into the drawing 100 times. You can enter as many songs as you like, but only the song with the most listens is counted.
Two winners will get a full year of SoundCloud Pro and the whole Propellerhead PC/Mac production suite of Reason and Recycle! They're even including the Balance audio interface! The winners will be drawn on March 15th 2013, and all the fine print is here.
Nakano Syun was quick to put the new update to good use in Audibuso, with Loopy and Sunrizer, in this jam video.

Music For iPad did a little demo video of Guitarism running into JamUp and finally out to Cubasis, with Audiobus. While not as helpful as other tutorial videos, it does give you a good idea how easy it is to get these apps all working together, and to see some more of Cubasis in a real world use. Guitarism is on sale now for just $1!
