    Super – thanks. We definitely see the value, and I’ve updated our case with your extra comments.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Rob!

    We’ve had a couple of others ask us for something similar. I’ve added your description to our existing feature request. 
    Would you view this it as an alternative to way to quickly set A/B and enable looping? Or would you view it as something separate where you enable the mode and it just locks on and plays a short section repeatedly (without impacting A/B and loop mode)?

    Figures. 🙁

    We’ve definitely changed up a number of things in the audio input path for our next update (for instance, you’ll be able to apply the EQ to the input, as well as to the music). Whether or not they will cover off this problem, we won’t know until we/you have a chance to try it out.

    Thanks Rob,

    Interesting to find out that there are stereo inputs like this – we’ve never had a chance to try them with Anytune. 
    In our next update, we are adding a “Mono Pan” feature to both the LiveMix input as well as to the Music playback. I expect the Mono Pan will effectively allow you to accomplish exactly what you’re talking about in terms of offering an equivalent to the Force mono input, left, right or summed by moving the pan slider. Funny how sometimes these things just seem to happen by coincidence… 😉

    Interesting – Turning LiveMix on and off does cause the audio subsystem to set itself up again, so perhaps it clears something out…

    Hi Mathew,

    It appears that Amplitube itself does not support bluetooth output. As soon as I launch it, the bluetooth output is disabled, and the audio redirects to the iPad speaker (or headphones if they are plugged in). I don’t know if Vocalive is the same, but I expect it probably is given that is is very similar to Amplitube, and by the same company.
    So I have this feeling that what you’re hoping to do is not going to work unfortunately… at least not without cables. With a cabled up iLoud, it should all work quite nicely I expect. Perhaps you could send a note over to the IK multimedia folks to see if they have any comment?

    Hi Rob,

    The input devices we have tried (Apogee JAM, iRig, USB headset) are mono input only. Anytune is configured to create “stereo” audio when a mono input is encountered, and that is how the balance control works.
    It seems that with the device you’re using, perhaps it is reporting itself as a stereo device even though there is only one actual channel, and as such that one channel is coming through on the left without being duplicated to the right.
    I will open a case for engineering to look into this. We do have some gain related enhancements coming to LiveMix in our next update. However, we do not have the same device you have for testing… if you would be willing to beta test our next update that would be helpful for us to figure out if we’ve solved the problem. Please email us at our support address (either in app, or from the website) if you’re willing to try a beta.

    Hmm. Seems you’re correct about Audiobus… 

    When I say Airplay, I meant Bluetooth and/or Airplay. The user interface is the same from the user perspective (tap the “Airplay” icon to choose the output source, whether that is internal speakers, an airplay device or a bluetooth device). Sorry for the confusion.
    When I get a chance, I will see what happens with bluetooth output and multiple apps. It’s probable that all audio will be redirected out to the BT speaker but I won’t know for sure until I try it.

    Getting a mix from both apps out over bluetooth could be tricky, since typically you redirect audio to Airplay/BT by application. I have not tried it using apps that are sharing audio at the same time, so I’m not sure how that will behave. If iOS only sends one of the audio signals rather than both, then a possible path would be to use Audiobus to mix them, and have Audiobus send the output over Airplay. That should work.

    Hi,

    Anytune supports playback to bluetooth devices. The only catch is that there is latency due to the wireless nature of the bluetooth signal. The latency currently means that what you see on the Anytune display will be a bit ahead of what you hear. 
    There may be some ways for us to reduce that lag, but at the moment it is quite noticeable. If you’re using it for playback, and aren’t too worried about what you see on the display, then I expect it will work fine.

    We’ve had requests to support a number of different bluetooth devices, the keyboard being one of them (amongst some more specific hardware like the Airturn). I can definitely see the value, now that we’ve been building and testing the Mac version and keyboard shortcuts can be a huge win for productivity…

    in reply to: Remove Vocal #186 |

    Hello,

    Anytune does not have a specific vocal reduction mode at this time. It is on our list of things do – we just haven’t found an algorithm that we’re happy with yet.
    In the meantime, the best Anytune can do would be to use the EQ to try and reduce some of the frequencies in the vocal range. Or alternatively use a tool like Audacity to create vocal removed tracks, and then use those tracks with Anytune.

    Thanks for clarifying Rob,

    One of my thoughts was around something like pressing and holding the add mark or loop mark button on mark creation so that it would open up the marks editor to the mark you just created (if it was hidden) or possibly bring up a popover to edit the mark that was just created. This would be a nice optimization on the creation step. However, if you’re frequently bringing up the marks list to navigate and then closing it again, it wouldn’t really make much of a difference in that style workflow.
    I’m not sure if you know this or not – but if you double tap on a mark in the main waveform area, it will show the marks editor if hidden and take you that mark to edit it. That would, however leave you with tapping the back button in the marks area to get back to the full list of marks, and hitting the hide button to dismiss the list.
    Interesting idea about repurposing the pinch gesture. Pinch in to show the marks sidebar and pinch out to hide it again. Hmm. I have captured your feedback in our feature tracking system. We’ll see what we can do in a future update… right now we are really busy trying to get Anytune Mac ready for our first beta test.
    Cheers,
    Sean.

    Hi Rob,

    Thanks for the feedback!
    I understand that you want quicker access to the marks… I’d like to understand your workflow a bit more, as I have some other ideas that may be applicable depending upon exactly what you’re doing. 
    For your workflow, is the access to the marks list primarily for navigation, or is it for creation/editing? In other words, when you bring the marks panel up, do you need it in order to navigate somewhere else in the song, or do you want it up because you’ve created a mark, and now you need to edit it right away?

    in reply to: Feedback using iRig #181 |

    Hmm.

    I’m not sure why you’d be having trouble with using the two at the same time. Many of our customers do exactly that. 
    What sort of device are you using? 
    It’s possible that with a first gen iPad or iPhone 3GS that there may not be enough resources to pull it off, but the newer devices should be capable of supporting both running at the same time.
    Sean.
