AudioBus 2.0 Sneak Preview


Developer Sebastian Dittmann let us know that AudioBus 2.0 is coming in early 2014, and shared these sneak previews of the updated interface.

Here’s what he has to say about the update:

Audiobus 2 will be capable of running as many apps in parallel or in series as your device can handle. That’s right: Multiple, independent pipelines with as many inputs, filters or outputs as you like in each. We’re doing away with any restrictions. This feature will be available as a very reasonably priced in-app purchase.

We’re also introducing a way to save presets of your connection graphs and share them via mail or your social networks.

Audiobus 2 will have a brand new look which enables us to add additional features more easily in the future and which we think looks really great and in tune with the design of iOS 7.

Here’s a video demo of the new features in action: Continue reading
