I am very old now...
I remember when I was so young, so beautiful, with a lot of muscles everywhere... Dozen of girls and boys around me...
I remember this day when Audiobus was released in the App Store...
A big revolution!
All around the world, million of musicians in the streets, sound engineers, Producers, Videos editor...
It was crazy...
For the first time we were able to connect Apps together with internal audio busses.
Today, this first version of Audiobus no more exist.
Today, we have Audiobus 3!
Unlimited internal Audio Busses. An Audio Mixer, A MIDI Router, a Ableton Link remote, an Audio Units host, and a App State Recorder!
Each time you connect 2 Apps together (Audio or MIDI), an audio bus is created.
An Audio Bus it's a stereo channel with a rack for the inputs and the inserts and 1 slot for an output (by default, the master output of your iDevices). In each rack you can add as much Apps as you like and that your iDevice can support. You can mix in a same rack Audiobus and Audio Units Apps. You can also send the output in another App. A new bus will be created... As much as like and that your iDevice can support...
The MIDI routing page works the same way... It's so easy to set your MIDI set up that even my 6 months old son can do it. (Not that I am not totally sure to have a son...)
The Mixer allows you to Mute, Solo, Pan and set the volume of all the Busses that you have created.
Now 2 things that are not details...
The remote transport that you can find in all the Apps loaded into Audiobus...
It's just awesome!
I remember when I was so young, so beautiful, with a lot of muscles everywhere... Thousand of girls and boys around me, I sent a Tweet to Audiobus asking them if it was possible to add an escamotable MIDI keyboard to this remote...
I still think that it could be a good idea...
And the State Saver is just...
When you have finish to work with all your Apps, you don't need to save the state for all of them...
Simply save your Audiobus session.
This is so awesome that for my live, even if I don't need Audiobus for a track I am performing, I use it just to recall all my Apps state!
Generally when I do a review, I do not like to talk about another App. it's a bit like giving an Oscar for the best movie, you're talking about another movie. But this time I will make a " Une entorse à la règle " in french, "sprain to the rule" in English because in many websites, I can read: Audiobus vs AUM. for my part, there is no vs between these two apps. There is rather a big ♥ ️
Audiobus is my Nieve and AUM my SSL
As I am a very lucky guy, I can connect them together.
A Killer App!, a Must Have!

In the French App Store description lot of reviews talk about a problem with Audio Share...
no output signal..
As always with Audio Share and all recording Apps , you have to enable the monitoring option.
Last week I received zMors.
I thought that it was a modular Synthesizer.
And yes it is, but I didn't know that it was much more that this.
You can use it as a Audio UNIT / IAA and The udio us mixer.
A multitrack recorder and mixer.
A midi sequencer...
As you like or need.
I am so impressed that I wanted to do a little video.
In the Video, I am using 3 Audio Units plugins, 1 midi sequencer and 1 midi keyboard module.
The midi sequencer send the note to Ruismaker and the midi keyboard control Zeeon synth.
I also route the Ruismaker Audio output signal to Reverb, a Audio Units effect.

Don't be frightened by the word "modular" and don't take the leak by looking at the length of this tutaorial ... you would pass next to an extraordinary App, and the worst, super easy to use.!
