I’ve now seen Audiobus in action twice, (and on video too, but it seriously is better in the flesh) and it is an amazing step forward for music making on mobile devices. It opens up a lot more possibilities than perhaps many of us had first thought. And if all goes well with the initial launch there will be lots more functionality to come too which will of course open up even more possibilities for mobile.
So we hope that Audiobus won’t be too much longer in making it’s debut on the app store. Of course, that’s just the start. There will of course then be a huge amount of pressure on developers to implement it, and I expect that everyone’s favourite app / developer will be looking forward to volumes of emails requesting just that.
It is without a doubt one of the most interesting developments in mobile music to date, and over the next few days and weeks I’ll be posting a few more thoughts on how it will change things. Until then, if you haven’t seen it already, I’d recommend Peter Kirn’s post on Audiobus at CDM (which he managed to get out far quicker than I’ve gotten around to writing this), and of course, have a look at the Audiobus site too.
