Finding a way to use a Seaboard in Loopy without being limited to what sounds can be used
Hi all, I’m trying to solve a logistics problem. I’m trying to put vocals and midi keyboard signals into Loopy through audiobus etc. The keyboard I am using is the Seaboard Block, which is an amazing tool but has one big limitation. Not all of the sounds available in its soundbank app can be played freely in other apps, there are some restrictions. The sounds which can’t be shared with other apps are the extremely lovely ‘SWAM’ audio modeled woodwind and string sounds, which are the ones I love most. So this means that if I want to use these in Loopy, I need to think outside the box. But I’m very new to this kind of thing, I have DJed before, I have played live music in bands, but am totally unfamiliar with the world of making music on iOS. The only solution I can see, from my newbie vantage point, is to have a set up like this:
Play the seaboard in its native app (called Noise, which allows unlimited access to all sound patches), connected to an iOS device. This would maybe mean buying a second iOS device just for this purpose, but would be a price worth paying for these sounds. This is basically treating it like a hardware synth instead of a midi device. Route this sound from this iOS device into an iOS audio interface. I would also need to route my voice, separately, through a dynamic mic or condenser mic depending on the situation, or even just through a headphone mic if playing around at home, and maybe even a third line, a guitar perhaps, into separate channels. Then this audio interface connects to my ipad, into the lightning port, presumably through the camera converter kit? And then I would need a USB hub to power this or not? Then in the ipad i can route these signals into Loopy separately, through things like AUM, Audiobus etc. Would this work? Or is there a more elegant solution to this problem? And any suggestions for audio interfaces that would be good enough for this without breaking the bank? Big thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read this or comment. Basically any solution that would work for someone wanting to put in separate vocals and a keyboard (and maybe a guitar) would work for this.
