Use multiple apps at together

A Tasty Pixel announced AudioBus Version 1.0.2 today. This update focuses on improving performance with CPU hungry apps, especially on iPad 2 and iPad mini.

Here’s what’s new:

New preferences pane allowing users to choose between a 512 and 256 frame hardware buffer size. Please choose 512 if you’re experiencing stuttering audio. Choose 256 if you want the fastest response time for live play. Only iPad 3, 4 and iPhone 5 default to 256 now, all other devices to 512. Find out more in this blog post about hardware buffer size.

AudioBus Buffer Size

Apps are now sorted alphabetically in the input/output/effects pop-over windows.
New status bar in the Audiobus main screen, showing current hardware buffer size and battery status. We don’t want you to run out of juice in the middle of a jam!
Some minor bugfixes.

Loopy HD Icon

Loopy HD by A Tasty Pixel

This is a looper that’ll come out to play, but get down to work when you want to get serious. While other music creation apps tend to be either powerful but difficult to learn, or easy to use but limited in features, Loopy doesn’t compromise. Loopy offers a sleek, expressive, instantly understandable interface that beginners can start using effectively straight away. It’s fun, right from the start. More advanced users, however, will not be disappointed by Loopy’s rich feature set, with extra features many other loopers just don’t have. Plus, a sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy’s more advanced features at their own pace.

What’s New in Version 1.3

- Added support for Bluetooth pedals like the AirTurn and Cicada, and Bluetooth keyboards
- Added iPhone 5 support
- Enhanced support for alternative time signatures
- Improved clock length manipulation, with more flexible behaviour for “+” and “-” buttons
- Rearranged Settings screen for easier understanding
- Added “Cancel pending actions” MIDI action

NOW you can now synchronize the clock across multiple devices, over a cable and over WiFi/Bluetooth, and across multiple apps on the same device.
This version also includes fully trainable MIDI control, so you can connect a foot switch or any other MIDI input device, and bind actions to any MIDI events.
Loopy HD on the iPhone now also allows you to display up to 12 tracks on-screen.

RECORD AND LAYER

- Six, nine, or twelve beautifully rendered circular loops, with simple yet powerful controls.

IMPORT & CONSTRUCT

- Import loops from your computer via iTunes, with support for AIFF, WAV, MP3, M4A, CAF and more.
- Bring in audio from many other audio apps with integrated MAPI AudioPaste, with support for Intua general pasteboard format.

MANIPULATE AND TWEAK

- Full stereo audio, with pan controls for each track to create custom stereoscapes.
- Fix up timing by twisting tracks around to line up the beat, or make funky sound effects with dynamic time shifting.
- Drag a track onto another track to merge tracks, and clear up a space.
- Live, dynamic tempo adjustment to speed up or slow down your creations, without altering the pitch.

PERFORM AND SHARE

- Record whole performances with in-app session recording facilities.
