Tube AU is a web video player audio unit plugin.

The plugin user interface looks like an ordinary web browser, except that it is limited to viewing only YouTube, and that the audio stream is sent to the plugin output rather than going directly to the speaker.

Note that this is an audio unit plugin only; it does not run as a stand-alone app.

Great concept, but buggy audio quality has been disappointing

I’m giving this app three stars because I love the idea and I want to support the smaller developers out here doing specialized stuff. This would have been the perfect tool for grabbing samples to chop up, etc. I even finally dropped the $17 for AUM, just for this app. But when I record audio into iMPC or AudioShare, there are all kinds of artifacts and noise, like the sound of TV static. I’ve only tried it on these two apps so far, but the problem has been consistent across my brief time with the app: unexplainable noise and hiss in any of my recordings, such that it prevents me from using the app at all. Hope this can be fixed so I can change this to five stars

Awesome Practice Tool

Generally I use this app for playing backing tracks that I can play over. I’ll plug in to my iPad, dial in a sound using a guitar amp sim app, then I pull up this app on a separate channel in AUM and do a search for what I need to work on (scales styles, etc.).
This has helped my playing improve quite a bit. My use of scales has become more impressive, if I do say so myself, my scale knowledge has expanded very well. Scales I didn’t know how to use I was suddenly figuring out how to use within the context of a song.
If you’re self taught I think you might enjoy this app. If you have some training in music I think this app will help you sharpen your skills.
Other reviews claim it’s buggy but the developer’s been fast to fix those. A bit faster than some people are at fixing their reviews. I use this often and it works great.

I use this app for playing guitar backingtracks while I Run AmpliTube on AUM and everything runs through a Focusrite 18i20 2nd gen as soundcard. Everything goes well, but sometimes this app stops working and the entire AUM stops working so I have to restart everything again. Could you check this? Thanks for reading
