Earlier this year we told you about “Audiobus” – an innovative new app that will allow live audio streaming between other supported apps. AudioBus has been in private beta for some time now and a few videos have started popping up showing just what it’s capable of (see below). And it looks awesome! Today, we are please to tell you that the AudioBus Team announced that the app will be available to the masses on December 10th 2012!
Following the release next Monday, the way we all make music on our iPads and iPhones is going to change forever. Things are about to get serious!
AudioBus will cost $9.99 and will be available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch on iOS 5.0 and later. Several iOS Audio Apps will support AudioBus on launch including…
Funkbox (input slot)
JamUp XT (effects slot)
JamUp Pro XT (effects slot)
Loopy (input and output slot)
Loopy HD (input and output slot)
MultiTrack DAW (output slot)
NLog MIDI Synth (input, effects and output slot)
NLog Synth PRO (input, effects and output slot)
ReBirth for iPad (input slot)
SoundPrism Pro (input slot)
Sunrizer Synth for iPad (input slot)
We’ll be keeping a running list of apps that support AudioBus here.
Thumbjam and Drumjam to be available shortly after launch since theyâ€™re currently waiting to be reviewed by Apple App Review. Furthermore, AudioBus support is currently being worked on for Animoog and Auria.
“Weâ€™ll be starting a limited second wave of Audiobus apps â€“ limited so we can rapidly respond to any potential remaining issues â€“ by giving another 25 developers access to the SDK. These developers will be selected from the list of developers who have expressed interest in acquiring access to the SDK â€“ currently thatâ€™s a list more than 700 entries strong. After a sufficient amount of apps from the second wave of developers have been approved by App Review and feedback is favorable, weâ€™re going to make the SDK public. This is going to happen in the next months. For those asking themselves how long it takes a developer to implement Audiobus support into their app: It depends on the complexity of the app and level of integration. The fastest teams have done it in one day. Testing and submission to App Review is typically the most time-consuming part.”
