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.
Audiobus has a rich community of over a thousand great compatible apps, including:

Ratings and Reviews
The Very Best For My Workflow
When it comes to communicating between music apps, Audiobus is the best. I will be the first to admit that I have a very simple workflow, not relying on multiple effects to create my sounds. I prefer to adjust my sound in the app itself. With the addition of the IAP of Midi Learn for only $2.99 I free myself from having to use the on pad controls, using my Midi Control Surfaces instead. Start, Stop, Switch between apps, Mix, Adjust; all these and more are now at my fingertips. Ableton Link insures everything is in time. And with one of the most robust support communities at the Audiobus forums you just can’t go wrong.
App not necessary / demo version would have been helpful
I read reviews, and I read the online manual for Audiobus. My main main purpose for getting Audiobus is that I need to route AUDIO to multiple BUSses. The manual says the app makes it possible for you to do this. However, after purchasing this, the only options are to route to L/R (or Out 1/Out 2). The app is not necessary to be able to do this. What I need is an app that will route audio from my iPad to multiple busses on a DAW on my computer.
Audiobus is a really a virtual mixer that allows you to route audio from a handful of audio apps to one mixer and/or to other apps. Output is limited, but it can be resolved with the purchase of a physical audio interface to connect directly to your iOS device. This, in turn, eliminates the need for the app in particular live performance settings.
To be fair, the app seems like it would do great if I actually used the apps that it is compatible with... which really is quite a few.
I originally gave this a 1=star rating, but decided it wasn’t a fair rating just because it doesn’t do what I needed it to do. However, the app does seem to be good at its current design.
Again, a demo version would’ve been extremely helpful in determining this prior to purchase.
A must have for all iOS musicians
If you own a couple of music apps that support Audiobus and especially if you own a few Audio Unit intruments or effects, you are doing yourself a big disfavor if you don't own this app yet.
It puts all the pieces of the audio routing puzzle together and lets everything jive together as a perfect matching ensemble. And version 3.1 takes it even a step further with the great new workflow improvements.
I started out with Audiobus years ago but at some point when AUM got released I moved away from Audiobus. However with version 3.1.1 and the improved and very solid support for Audio Units it has drawn me back into the Audiobus camp and feels like returning home. Thanks to the developer's fantastic support it also fixed a couple of technical issues i was having and everything now plays like a dream.
Highly recommended app. Get it now if you don't own it yet!
Full five star rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and both thumbs up 👍👍
