Audiobus: Mixer for music apps

App Store Description:

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

Here are some of the things you can do with Audiobus:

Send live audio or MIDI from one Audiobus-compatible app or AUv3 Audio Unit to another. Add effects on top of your favourite synthesizer, and use your favourite step sequencer to drive it. Or plug in your guitar, and create your own effects chain, in parallel with your mic input. Adjust the mix and balance with the mixer. And send the result to your favourite DAW, sampler or looper, or run it out through a multi-channel audio interface.

Integrate your music gear with Audiobus: connect a Bluetooth or wired MIDI keyboard to play a synth or other app or Audio Unit. Or, control your whole session from a foot switch or other MIDI controller using Audiobus' MIDI Learn In-App Purchase. And sync with external hardware with Audiobus' best-in-class MIDI clock.

The possibilities are endless.

Midiflow Transposer (Audiobus)

App Store 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 Splitter (Audiobus)

App Store 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.

MANAGAGE SPLIT POINTS AND ASSIGN ZONES
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.

OCTAVE SHIFT AND CONTROLLER ASSIGNMENT
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.

SOLO
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 Channels (Audiobus)

App Store Description:

This MIDI effect app for Audiobus 3 allows you to filter out MIDI messages on specific MIDI channels. Furthermore, you can remap the channel to a different value.

+ Filter out messages on specific MIDI channels
+ Remap channels
+ 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 Adapter (Audiobus)

App Store Description:

This MIDI app for Audiobus 3 allows you to include music apps, which don't support Audiobus MIDI but only Core MIDI. It creates permanent virtual MIDI ports for input and output. After distinctly selecting each of those ports in your "legacy" music apps, they can receive and send MIDI from/to Audiobus 3.

+ Connect up to 10 receiving apps (like synthesizers)
+ Connect up to 10 sending apps (like sequencers)
+ Use multiple instances of this app in Audiobus

NOTE: This app requires Audiobus 3. Insert it into one or more MIDI input and output ports. Furthermore, this adapter only works with apps that allow you to select MIDI ports for sending and receiving. It won't work with apps that have no MIDI setup page.

IMPORTANT: Connecting apps via Core MIDI is an advanced topic. If you haven't done it before, please become familiar with it prior to downloading this app.

CONNECT YOUR "LEGACY" APPS TO AUDIOBUS 3
Audiobus 3 has introduced a powerful MIDI routing system that makes interconnecting MIDI apps a lot easier than it was before. However, not all music apps support this new system, yet. Midiflow Adapter makes those apps compatible, by translating between the "old" Core MIDI system and the new Audiobus 3. This, however, only works with apps that let you to select MIDI ports for input and output, or at least the MIDI channel. It is not enough if these apps create their own virtual MIDI port.

SETUP FOR SYNTH APPS (RECEIVERS)
Midiflow Adapter creates 10 permanent virtual MIDI output ports. This means that you can use up to 10 music apps with this adapter. For setting it up, start Midiflow Adapter. Then, start your first synth app that you want to connect with Audiobus via this adapter app. Go to its MIDI settings and activate reception on the MIDI port called "MF Adapter Out 1". It is essential that you deactivate reception on all other ports. Now, go to Audiobus 3 and insert MF Adapter into a MIDI output slot. In the input slot, add any other app, like Midiflow Keyboard. When you switch to Midiflow Adapter, you can select which of your synth apps the MIDI data should go. In this case, it is already set to "Out 1", so you're ready to go.

For your second synth app, do the same steps, but select MIDI port "MF Adapter Out 2", and so on. Then, you can select it in the adapter app.

SETUP FOR SEQUENCER APPS (SENDERS)
The procedure is identical to the one for receiver apps (see above). However, you need to configure the MIDI output settings instead of the input settings. Midiflow Adapter creates 10 permanent virtual MIDI input ports for that purpose. They are called "MF Adapter In 1-10".

WORKING WITH CHANNELS
Some Core MIDI apps don't allow you to select the input/output ports, but only the MIDI input/output channel. In that case, they receive on all ports. The only way to selectively trigger them is to assign a unique channel to them. In Midiflow Adapter, you can then select this channel as input/output.

NON-COMPATIBLE APPS
If one of your music apps neither supports selecting the MIDI port nor setting the MIDI channel, you cannot use it with Midiflow Adapter.
