No game. Streaming of instrument sounds 'Apollo' ('…Recorder $9.99 > $3.99; Univ)

Got more than one iOS device? Ambitionated musician? You have to check this out!!! Apollo Sound Injector (link BELOW the following app info about Apollo Remote Recorder) lets you stream audio from one iOS device to another iOS device with Audiobus! It works great! (Tested with iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPad Air; minor crackles on iPhone 4 at the beginning of transmissions sometimes.)

Just plug together a string of apps on one device going into Apollo Remote Recorder (transmitter), then on another device put Apollo Sound Injector on the input chain of Audiobus (or solo) and you've got audio from both devices to play with!

All time best price for Apollo Remote Recorder, first sale ever (US$9.99 ==> US$3.99)!

FREE compagnion app (receiver) Apollo Sound Injector:

Apollo Sound Injector makes it easy to stream audio from one iOS device to another. Use Apollo Remote Recorder with the device that is sending audio, and Sound Injector on the device that needs to receive the audio -- we have two separate apps so that it's easy to know which end is which.

Both Remote Recorder and Sound Injector work with Audiobus, so you can integrate iOS synthesizers and sequencers, and build complex audio processing chains. And if you're making music, you should also take a look at Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth -- the fast way to send MIDI between multiple devices.

Secret Base Design has years of experience developing leading edge apps for serious musicians. Our "Apollo" series of apps are designed to let you use multiple iOS devices, as well as desktop and laptop computers, to build an integrated and flexible music studio.

If you are using desktop DAWs, you can take advantage of Sound Injector on the desktop -- a free PC VST, and a free Mac AU, are both available on the Secret Base Design web page.

Note that with audio streaming over WiFi, there can be some latency, and performance will depend a great deal on your router, and the WiFi traffic. Sound Injector features a novel latency reduction algorithm -- but there are limits to how far this can go, and very low latency connections may also introduce audio glitches.

Audiobus forum about Recorder (w dev being present):

Audiobus forum about Injector:

For iOS instrument (synths, drum machines, Cubasis, Auria…) streaming (seeding) you need Audiobus:

That's PURE iOS power—believe me! Highly, highly recommended! Better than iPad Air 2 Superlarge + iPhone 6 Superplus + iOS 8.3 together (just kidding). Check out the other apps of this dev too (they are all on sale), there will be an App Bundle soon as well.

Double Decker "The best MIDI controller is the one that you have with you. Double Decker transforms an ordinary Bluetooth keyboard into a sophisticated MIDI controller, giving you a much bigger playing surface, while still being portable. The app is designed to work with US/English keyboards; the key arrangement for other languages may not be compatible." FREE for the first time!

Spectral Eye Pro (on FREE sale, 27.8 MB): "Analyzes incoming audio signals to extract the underlying frequencies, most sounds are built up from a variety of sine waves; a simple whistle might be a single wave, while a guitar, piano, or the human voice have many waves added together."

Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth (was free once, now: $5.99 => $1.99)

Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth for Macs, free App, link to Mac App Store:

Nice To Be Your Friend Synth (was already on free sale for three times, now: $3.99 => $0.99, 38.9 MB). "Nice To Be Your Friend is the friendliest synthesizer app on iOS. There are two keyboards to play, with the top keyboard rotating around so that you can make music with a friend. What is played on one keyboard is highlighted on the other, so that you can share songs, and improvise new music." Supports Apples Inter-App Audio (they are working on IAA support for the Apollos)!

MIDImorphosis – Polyphonic Audio to MIDI Conversion (was already on free sale for one time a year ago, now: $7.99 => $3.99). "Traditional MIDI converters for guitar and bass require custom pickups and expensive hardware. MIDImorphosis avoids this through advanced signal processing and adaptive algorithms, bringing polyphonic audio conversion to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch."

Voxkit (now alltime best price $1.99 instead of normally $3.99, 40.9 MB). "Voxkit is a fundamentally different iOS music instrument, designed for drums, bass lines, and backing chords. While you can trigger sounds by touching the screen, the app is designed to trigger notes with sound."

More info and videos @ dev website:
AND! Believe it or not! FREE AU-Plugin for Macs und VST DLL for PCs (alpha/beta)! (Not tested yet.)

Can't await to check out how many iOS devices can play your synth sounds and/or djay2 together in one Wifi!
