One of the overlooked features in iOS 7 is the new Inter-App Audio routing system. While not as powerful as AudioBus, Apple’s system provides yet another set of Core services that ensure system-level capability and functionality. Today IK Multimedia announced that their flagship AmpliTube app us iOS 7 compatible and adds Inter-App Audio routing system support.
Here are some specifics about the iOS 7 support from the press release:
Inter-App audio allows audio apps to communicate with each other and stream the audio output from one app to another. This feature is extremely handy for adding effects, and processing the audio stream from one app and sending it to another. AmpliTube can be used as a “filter” app in iOS 7 for processing the audio from other apps, allowing musicians to use all of the stompbox and amplifier effects with any live (real-time) or recorded material. This feature is similar to AudioBus functionality, but provides the opportunity for more complex routing. AmpliTube is fully AudioBus compatible as well, making it the most flexible audio-processing and recording app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
