Audiobus Remote is Wireless, Second Screen Controller for iOS Music Making

Audiobus Remote is an app that mirrors and extends the Audiobus Connection Panel to a second iPad or iPhone. In short, you can make use of an older iOS device as a music app controller.  

Today is a big day for the Audiobus team!

We've spent the last months working on a new product we think is going to make those multi-app workflows much easier – and pave the way for a bunch of cool new workflows.

It's called Audiobus Remote, and it's an app that mirrors and extends the Audiobus Connection Panel to a second iPad or iPhone.

Audiobus Remote works great with all 700 Audiobus-compatible apps.

It's a really nice way to switch apps and access Connection Panel controls, but we didn't stop there: we've also given developers a way to create their own “Remote Triggers” – app-specific controls that appear in Audiobus Remote on your second screen.

Here's Mike with an introduction to the new app:


Audiobus Remote is compatible with all the apps that are currently compatible with Audiobus, but we've also teamed up with a select list of third party developers. They've implemented Remote Triggers in their apps, and we think the result is really cool. Here are some things you can now do with Audiobus Remote:

  • Record or toggle individual loops in Loopy HD.
  • Trigger drum samples in DM-1.
  • Move between presets in Bias FX and JamUp.
  • Change presets and adjust effect controls in Holderness Media's effects apps including Crystalline and Echo Pad.
  • Trigger individual sections in Sector, and switch modes.
  • Play a mini version of SoundPrism Electro.

Our compatible apps list now has a badge for apps that offer Remote Triggers.

Audiobus Remote requires iOS 8.3 and a device that's compatible with Bluetooth Low Energy: iPad 3, iPad Mini, iPhone 4s, iPod Touch 5th gen and newer devices.

Audiobus Remote is available today for $4.99 USD / £3.99 GBP.
