New App, apeMatrix, Gives You Complete Control Of Audio Routing In iOS

apeMatrix is a new AU/IAA App for iOS that gives you complete control over audio routing.

apeMatrix is designed to bring all your audio creation tools together and link them both in MIDI and audio. apeMatrix can also assign its Control Manager MIDI, Accelerometer, Scrub and LFO’s to modulate any built-in parameter and any parameter available inside AUv3 (Audio Unit Plugins).

apeMatrix offers 10 slots on each of three Matrix grids, with 2 bus slots on each grid that make it possible to interconnect all 3 Matrix.

  1. Been using it over the past few days. Lots to like, including the approach to controlling AU parameters (not that discoverable but very useful). Never was a huge fan of LFOs, but these can make for fun effects, especially with modular-style sound generation and processing (as opposed to keyboard-centric instruments).
    Not sure it’ll become my main host. AUM is also quite a bit of fun and AB3 is gaining AU MIDI. But it’s a useful tool to have on one’s iOS devices, especially if you have some AU MIDI plugins (Rozeta, StepPolyArp Unit…).
