Virtual midi and Audiobus support
« on: February 27, 2013, 07:06:21 pm »
Hi, thanks for the great app.

Can you please add Virtual Midi and Audiobus support to iMini.

Because without this functionality the app is not very useful for music making on iPad. Now there are great apps that can sequence external synths via virtual midi (Cubasis, Genome midi sequencer, Beatmaker 2 etc.). And much more that support Audiobus (almost all iOS DAWs including Auria and tens of other apps).

Thanks

Yes - please add Audiobus, it is a great synth but not very useful for iOS music without it!

Audiobus would make this app way more useful to me.

Absolutely Audiobus, but don't hold your breath, Retronym won't like the idea of you escaping their toy ecosystem.

I just recieved an email from arturia support:

Actually, iMini doesn't support Audiobus; according to the fact this has been asked many times, we will take it in consideration.

For now, I can't confirm you that iMini will support Audiobus.

Let me know if you need further informations.

So maybe they add it if we keep bothering them about it.

I just tried to sequence some imini stuff in tabletop and it's ridiculously unstable. I had 14 crashes in one hour. Sometimes the sounds just distort, sometimes the patches break. And sometimes the app quits and unsaved work is lost. Tabletop is great designed, but really a pain to use. And i feel uncomfortable using it:

With all the great stuff happening like audiobus, core/virtual midi, cubasis and auria, etc, you feel finally free and empowered to create music on the ipad professionally, and the way you want - whereas in the tabletop environment, you feel trapped, weak, and guided into buying more things. (Especially when you know what is possible regarding audiobus, export features etc. )

 It really should be about making a great product, that gives the consumer the best possibilities he/she could wish for, rather than using a potentially great product, to get him/her to buy more stuff.

I really like the imini. Its 1 of the best ipad synths out there yet and it would be tragic if it couldnt be used by lots of people to create great music, but end up as another dusty toy on the tabletop table.

So lets hope arturia will unleash its power, and give it to the people!

+1 for the "bus"

For now, there is a workaround, though:

Works if you own an aufio interface (i happen to have the focusrite itrack solo):

1. connect left output of interface to left input of interface
2. use cubasis or auria, and pan the tracks you want to overdub, or the clicktrack to the right
3. record your left input while playing back over the right and overdub your imini stuff.

This solution is only a mono recording, but if you have an interface with at least 4 in/outs, you can record imini in stereo into cubase, auria or whatever....

Thanks for all your feedback here!  Really appreciate it.  We are looking at Audiobus and appreciate all the feedback here!

I'd love to hear more!

What is your current favorite Audiobus app?  How do you plan on using iMini if it had Audiobus?  What is your favorite music mixing,production,host,destination app on iPad?
