Luis Martinez has brought us a series of amazing drum apps over the years, and now he's providing us with the rest of the rhythm section in today's release of iBassist! The app promises quick and easy chord progression editing, which can be applied to different grooves, for a lively bassline. The sounds come from a variety of real basses, and can be tweaked with built-in effects. Ableton Link is also included.
Luis included a small note on the current Inter-App Audio implementation. You need to launch iBassist first, before your IAA host, or you will not be able to hear it. This will be addressed in a future patch, but for now you just need to launch iBassist first and you should hear it in both IAA and Audiobus.
