Developers Audanika and A Tasty Pixel have announced a new project, Audiobus, that promises to make audio on iOS a lot more interesting.
One of the key limitations for iOS has been the difficulty of working with audio from multiple music apps ‘in the box’. Audiobus, described as a ‘virtual mixing board and FX processor for iOS’, could help address that.
Here’s what the developers have to say about Audiobus:
Audiobus is a local (and network) communications channel for sending live audio, like the audible output of a synthesizer app, or the output of a guitar amp effects app, for example.
More than that, Audiobus is also a multi-track recorder and content creation platfom, allowing you to record and mix the output of several apps all at once, and then publish the result.
At this point, Audiobus is underdevelopment. But, it’s being spearheaded by the same people that helped drive the rapid development of MIDI collaboration with iOS – so this could get interesting fast.
Audiobus is ‘coming soon’. See the Audiob.us site for details.
