GarageBand for iOS updated with Audiobus support

GarageBand for iOS updated with Audiobus support

GarageBand for iOS has been updated with editing enhancements, bug fixing, and Audiobus support. Audiobus is an app that facilitates communication between supported music apps, allowing you to, for instance, create a track in one app, send it immediately to another for filtering or effects work, then send the filtered audio into another app, like a multi-track recorder. This all takes place within the apps themselves, no need to copy or use an “Open In...” menu.

Audiobus recently announced an SDK for developers who want to support its capabilities.

Other enhancements includ the ability to turn off grid snapping, giving users greater control when editing their recordings. There is also a fix for an issue that caused feedback when connecting third-party audio accessories through the headphone jack.

The update is live one the App Store. Go grab it and let us know what you think.

I wish I could give a good comment about this, but I find playing guitar on an iPad is beyond stupid.

czhDavid says:

Yeah it is sooo stupid to record something using amplitube and add drums or bass background in garage band....sooooo stupid

kch50428 says:

Dittos czhDavid... there's tons of things that can be done that the person you replied to has no idea of...

shinuyuki says:

Obviously I was somewhat ignorant on this fact. Do find it funny I made two people somewhat cry.

Sebastian Paul says:

Yeah, so stupid... o.O

Wow.. this is awesome.. :) Thanks for the share!!

angermeans says:

Wow! Excellent share man! This is why the iPad is the only tablet to consider on the market. Great find!

czhDavid says:

Great news for us musicians. Got to try it!

GlennRuss says:

The iPad will just get better at recorded music, guitar, bass, drums. Look a Auria. For 50 bucks you have a 48 track DAW. With an interface, you can go portable anywhere. More, and more music apps will go in this direction to share. Audiobus is a great thing.

asuperstarr says:

This appears to be a good update. I have to check it out.

wscotchmer says:

Sound cool. I wish I had the time to mess around with it...

chaitanya91845 says:

I wish I knew how to mess around with it!

AdrianGabeChen says:

i've tried it on the ipad but i find it's better on the mac

chaitanya91845 says:

No I do not have a mac, so I cannot say for sure that it would be better on an iPad.. but I am curious how the experience would be to use such an app without a touchscreen.. or maybe I am missing something??

I'll probably get my Mac card revoked, but I haven't downloaded GarageBand for iOS yet. It's on my list, but I get distracted by games

gardnerkymani says:

Garage band is my favorite app

threedjoev says:

I really wish I knew more about GarageBand.... I use amplitube right now and I'm not really that happy with it.

Finzor says:

This is perfect for creating custom ringtones and such. I love having R2D2 as my text tone. <3

Balzacbee says:

The recent change with audiobus has me using my first gen ipad and slaving it with my 3rd gen. That's my intention anyhow. Try ikaossilator, drumjam and loopy hd. They all chat with one another. Impaktor is just fun.
