Audiobus is said to “change the way people create music on iOS”. Quite bold words but if they have managed to pull this off it really will be a game changer!
From what we’ve been told so far Audiobus is a virtual mixing board and FX processor for iOS allowing live app-to-app audio streaming, and involves an SDK that app developers include in their projects as well as a separate ‘co-ordinating’ app that will connect the two apps together. It is said to even work over WiFi (~60ms latency).
iOS app developers can sign up to get more information about Audiobus and register their interest in the SDK beta programme at audiob.us.
If all goes well users should start seeing Audiobus released and the functionality implemented into iOS apps in the next couple of months.
Here are some mockups of the main Audiobus interface…
