The Audiobus source gives you access to dozens of new music sources - other apps that act as Audiobus inputs. The possibilities are endless...

Please note that the audio will be delayed by 2 seconds - this comes from the AirPlay protocol/speakers - so no 'real time' audio mixing etc is supported.

How it works (e.g. together with djay2 app)

Preconditions

  • download the Audiobus app (unfortunately there is no free/trial version of this app yet)
  • download other apps that can act as Audiobus inputs, e.g.
    • Pro Metronome helps to perfectly synchronize your speakers
    • djay 2 for iPad/iPhone for your next party (there is also a free version) - please note that the Spotify integration of djay 2 does NOT work when Audiobus is connected!
    • TwistedWave Recorder - record from microphone and playback in order to transmit announcements in the whole house

Your favorite music app is not yet compatible with Audiobus?!? Then contact their customer service today!

  • close the WHAALE app if in use
  • open the Audiobus app
  • connect the WHAALE app as Audiobus output
  • connect another app as Audiobus input

2

  • use the other app to control the music
  • go to the WHAALE app

1

  • you can use the tab at the bottom of the screen to switch between apps + pause/resume audio

Splitting the audio signal (djay2 app)

  • the djay 2 app allows to split the audio signal to give the djay a preview on his headphones while the music is played on the speakers
  • the WHAALE app supports splitting the music -> you can play the music on the airplay speakers while listening to the preview on the headphones (without the need for an additional cable)
  • in the djay app go to the settings and select 'split output'
  • in the WHAALE app select 'split audio' when dragging the music source to the stage
