Description: Audiobus is a inter-app audio routing system. You can connect your Audiobus-compatible music apps together. Just like virtual cables. Connect the output of one Audiobus-compatible app into the input of another. Use Audiobus to play a synthesizer live into a looper or multi-track recorder. Or use one app to manipulate the live output of another.

Quick Review
Audiobus is the standard for inter-app audio routing and it’s quite easy to see why. Audiobus allowes you to connect Audiobus-compatible music apps together into the input of another. One way to connect devices in a chain is with a synthesizer going through an effects app such as AUFX:Space. Another is to play a synthesizer live into a multi-track app like Garageband or Cubasis. For a list of compatible Audiobus apps go here: Compatible Apps.

This is a seamless app that will give instant results. You basically add an input, such as a synthesizer or drum machine, add an effects app which is next in the chain and that will then output to Speaker or to another app. There is no option to add more devices to the chain like you can with a traditional MIDI setup but I’m sure it’s in the works.

Conclusion: It works great and it’s simple to set up. The list for compatible apps is growing. Check the above list to see if you already own one. For $5.49 it’s great value. Works on the iPhone and iPad. If you’re making music with apps, this is an essential tool.
