Audiobus 2 Has Arrived and It Is Fantastic

Launch day

The much anticipated update to Audiobus has been released today and it is very exciting news for the iOS musician community.

We are sure Audiobus needs no introduction to most of you and Version 2 has some great new features as well as a newly designed interface (looking a lot flatter than before).

Audiobus 2's New Features

  • Multi-Routing (In-app purchase for $4.99 / £2.99 and well worth it!) - this introduces parallel pipes for multiple inputs via different processing apps into multiple (or one) outputs - very impressive and from our initial testing it works really well, even on our older iPad 3rd gen.

  • Presets - saveable and shareable (via email, Twitter and Facebook)

  • State-Saving - for compatible apps, no more setting your apps up every time you want to reproduce a sound you crafted before. We are expecting this feature will be more widely supported very quickly

Slight Technical Issue

Just a small issue for Version 1 users with the In-app Purchase for Multi-routing. The Audiobus team are aware of it and have already submitted a fix to Apple, but is awaiting approval.

If you do make the $4.99 / £2.99 purchase you will probably experience crashing of the app (we certainly did), but it is easily fixed. This is from the Audiobus forum post on the issue:

***IMPORTANT FOR EXISTING Version 1 USERS: If you're encountering a crash when purchasing the In-App Purchase, please delete the Audiobus app, reboot your iDevice and then install it freshly again. You won't be charged twice. We're submitting a bug fix right now. ***

Since we followed the above advice we have had no issues at all.

The Future of Music Creation is Bright

With this Audiobus 2 update we think the creative possibilities of the iPad and other iOS devices has been massively expanded and with faster iPad hardware on the horizon we can't wait to see where iPad musicians take this new functionality.
