• This app! Apematrix, is not just an app! Its a divine blessing from the mount olympus! ★★★★★
    This app will change the course of history, that time isnt that far away! sorry AUM and AB(respect to you both) But Apematrix, is like, i’d like to describe as “None quite so equal, none will ever be” This is food for the gods! The dev, is an absolute blessing for this shallow earth!

  • MUSIC | FIELD RECORDINGS | EXPERIMENTS ApeMatrix Does it All! ★★★★★
    Really useful audio recording, mixing, DJ, sequencing tool! Every musician, sound artist & engineer, DJ, audio tech should have this in their toolbox! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A couple of small suggestions ============ Low or minimum volume as standard or an option to adjust starting initial volume when adding a route on the matrix. When patching or routing in a live or modular like way occasionally the full volume is too much especially when trying to play with feedback & audio in a live way. An envelope or intensity variable adjustment for the LFO section. The LFOs are great but also Global Volume / Panning & LFO in mixer An global LFO option to control the sum of all parts could be very useful Additional LFOs in the adjustment section. Being able to place additional LFOs on any from mixer section could help w/ generative music & experimental audio & music GUI & UX To turn to mixer by holding 2 or 3 fingers & sliding sideways a cube, fade, flip animation effect or similar {these could maybe be options with existing animation from ios, swift, github libraries _______________________________ Thanks so much for all of the thoughts & creativity in all of your creations 🙂

  • The Best for sound creation! Only Small bugs. ★★★★★
    I absolutely love this app. It’s fantastic for experimenting with the dozens of apps I have and connecting them in new ways. However, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but there seems to be an issue with the ableton live integration. I can get all of my other apps to connect with no problem, but haven’t been able to get this to sync to ableton. Other than that, this is my #1 music app right now.

  • Must have tool for sound design! ★★★★★
    You have synths. You have fx apps. You have infinite possibilities of combining them to produce unique interesting sounds and this is the app designed exactly for that. Say you have 2 synths that you want to output through different fx and then have outputs of those go through one other fx app and then split that outgoing signal and route it to two different other fx. Make some connections stronger or more subtle (those intersecting circles are all gain controls for those connections). Can this be done in any other app? Nope, this is the only one. I like AUM, but once I have a DAW that allows me to record and edit MIDI as well as audio I’ll see no reason to keep it. (Cubasis can record audio and MIDI, but I don’t like it for editing MIDI). But even if I have a perfect DAW, I’ll still need ApeMatrix because no other app allows such flexibility for sound experimentation. You can also modulate a lot of stuff, with each control getting its own LFO. If the knob of a synth can be midi mapped - ApeMatrix can modulate it. This really expands the capabilities of the synths, basically taking them to the next level, because some synths have very limited modulation options. Great LFOs too. you can just drag two ends of sliders to select the range (for example move some knob between certain positions) this makes experimenting a breeze! One tip to quickly get started, all connections go from left to top. So whenever you place a dot anywhere, you’ve sent the signal from left icon to the top icon. Request: awesome app in every way, but it would be perfect if you could make files alphabetical. Otherwise when I come back to an older project and save as new copy with the same name (adding a version number), it places it at the bottom instead of next to the old one. It’s possible to rearrange them, but the alphabetical way is so much better. Thanks for considering!

  • Deep, powerful, inspiring ★★★★★
    When I realized my iPad mini 2 could support a 6 in/out USB interface (powered externally), I didn't realize I had an app that not only supported that many, but gave me a systematic way to route audio between hardware and software *and* assign midi channels, midi ccs, lfos, and my ipad's accelerometers to controls in all those apps with all those signals. Plus on the fly recording, plus a built in keyboard and limiting note input to one of a mess of scales. In a pretty modest, outdated device. Would recommend. Do recommend already.
    By GregRocksSoHard for Version 1.5.9
  • Wonderful, flexible, stable ★★★★★
    Gives you a variety of powerful options and quick and easy ways to route various kinds of devices whether it be midi or audio. Gets 5 stars already for what it is. Would be nice if there was a way to ‘midi map’ opening a device. Either to show an audio unit (same action as tapping the icon of the app), or switching to IAA devices at the tap of a key or button would be nice. It gets difficult having to rely on the screen to switch between apps. Bonus points if it could do this even while running in the background.

    Just keeps getting better

  • Wonderful app ★★★★★
    This app has made it SO much easier to combine other iOS music apps, and easily take advantage of their many features. There are a few apps that do this well but not many. So this is well worth checking out. I found the interface easy to understand, and there’s documentation as well. Also, the developer has been very good about updates. I’ve had lots of fun with apeMatrix and you may too. I encourage you to check it out. Especially if you are looking to break away from DAW-style recording, this could be perfect for you!

  • apeSoft rules ★★★★★
    I never, ever thought that there could come along an AUM killer. Enter apeMatrix. It's just as elegant, pretty, and even more efficient than AUM at setup with both its matrix and its alphabetized, sortable-by-type app menus (anyone who has a ton of music apps knows how much scrolling AUM can take to set up). I've only opened AUM once since I bought apeMatrix opening day, and only then for its file player. Latest ape update with the metronome was much needed. I'm 99% satisfied. Really the only key feature missing now is separate outs for recording, but since I just use it for jamming live and sketching out ideas to take into Auria or Cubasis, I don't really need it.

Holding true to the standard of apeSoft, apeMatrix continues to push the limits of possibilities in music creation. Automating almost every aspect of linked control, apeMatrix brings all your creation tools together and links them both in MIDI and audio. Letting you inject all your favorite FX both AU and IAA in a very easy and intuitive way. apeMatrix can also assign its Control Manager MIDI, Accelerometer, Scrub and LFO’s to modulate every built-in parameter and any parameter available inside the AUv3 (Audio Unit Plugins). apeMatrix offers 10 slots on each of the three Matrix grids with 2 bus slots on each grid that make it possible to interconnect all 3 Matrix. The MIDI Patch-bay also offers endless possibilities for MIDI routing and control in a similar grid design for both internal and external MIDI control. So you can send and receive MIDI and have ultimate control over where it’s routed. Each Audio Connection on the grid has its own gain control. Just tap on the node and drag will give you the full range of volume control. Or use Mixer to controls the RAU output and automate them using apeSoft’s unique Control Manager MIDI, Accelerometer, Scrub and LFO’s to modulate every built-in parameter and any parameter available inside the AUv3 (Audio Unit Plugins). Turn each slot on or off by a control switch on the Matrix or MIDI control. Control output, pan, mute and solo of each slot and Master output of each Matrix with the built in mixer control or MIDI control. Route your sounds through all a series of FX or route multiple sounds through the very some FX. The possibilities are as endless as your creativity. FEATURES High quality audio up to 32-bit 96kHz Supports Audio Unit extensions, Inter-App Audio Supports multi-channel inputs/outputs audio interfaces Supports Audio Unit Multi-bus input/output (side-chaining) 3 Matrix Audio 3 MIDI Matrix 10 Open Slots per Matrix (hosts up to 30 plugins) 2 Audio Bus Slots per Matrix 2 MIDI Bus Slots per Matrix MIDI Monitor Multi-Channel Audio Route AudioUnit Audio Send Receive Buses MIDI Scale Filtering, Transpose etc… Control Manager (MIDI, Accelerometer, LFO, Scrub) for all Built-In Parameters Control Manager (MIDI, Accelerometer, LFO, Scrub) for all AUv3 (Audio Unit Plugins) Presets Manager and Morphing Pad Save Custom AUv3 Presets Session Saving/Load Save/Load View’s Frame in Presets Transport to sends host sync to Audio Unit plugins and IAA Integrated and configurable…
