Since its release 3 months ago, over 100 music apps have joined the quickly growing Audiobus community (including the just announced Garageband). Now, that list is set to expand exponentially. Michael Tyson, Audiobus creator, has unveiled two surprises on the iOS music world. The first is The Amazing Audio Engine:
The Amazing Audio Engine is a sophisticated framework for iOS audio applications, built so you don’t have to.
It is designed to be very easy to work with, and handles all of the intricacies of iOS audio on your behalf.
Built upon the efficient and low-latency Core Audio Remote IO system, and written by one of the pioneers of iOS audio development and developer of Audiobus Michael Tyson, The Amazing Audio Engine lets you get to work on making your app great instead of reinventing the wheel.
Also completely open-source is the Audiobus SDK. This makes it a breeze for developers to implement Audiobus support for their app. The Audiobus Developer Center is at http://developer.audiob.us
You’ll find extensive documentation, a developer community forum, and utilities to register and manage your apps so that they appear within the Audiobus app and on our site
These are some seriously great developments for audio app programmers (especially aspiring ones such as myself). The world of iOS inter-app audio is growing up fast! Onward!
