“As for other applications to expect: I think it’s impossible to tell what people might come up with, but one example for a new app that can only exist after Audiobus has been launched would be an effects app that only does that: add effects to a live audio stream. It would not need to have additional input or output options, and developers would not have to bother with file management or add all sorts of settings and configuration options as they would have before Audiobus.” – Sebastian Dittmann
Apps with the sole purpose of live audio manipulation could be great companions for Audiobus! You’re messing around with some synthesizer and want to add some live, outside effects to the output – Filtatron and Animoog being a perfect example considering the news. We will probably start seeing all kinds of new effects apps pop up with Audiobus support made just for live audio manipulation. It’d be like adding guitar pedals in between your electric guitar and amp… genious! The interview continues discussing how Audiobus will change ‘iOS sandboxing’ and even reveals a price range!
