Ray Wenderlich AudioKit Tutorial Released



AudioKit 3.5 & The Amazing Audio Engine

AudioKit Version 3.5 is out and it's mostly a general clean up and improvement, with the major feature of full Audiobus capabalities including presets. We also have very complete documentation and walkthroughs of creating Audiobus enabled applications with AudioKit.

We wanted to have a round-number release to coincide with Michael Tyson's recent decision to retire "The Amazing Audio Engine" and forward his potential new users to AudioKit.

I've personally admired Michael Tyson for a long time, not only for his work on the audio engine, but also Loopy and Audiobus. Audiobus is the single most important application I have on my iPad. Everyone should get it. It's way better than Inter-App Audio alone, and it's under active development and just getting better and better.

So, if you're new to AudioKit and coming from The Amazing Audio Engine, please let me welcome you. Come join our forum, and if you're an active developer with chops, let us know and we'll consider you for the smaller AudioKit slack group.



AudioKit Playground Book for iPad Playgrounds

This is now the easiest way to try out AudioKit playgrounds. Just put "AudioKit.playgroundbook" in your Playgrounds folder on iCloud Drive, or use AirDrop to transfer it onto your iPad, which will prompt you to open the playground book in the Playgrounds app.

There are some limitations. It requires iOS10. It is not a complete copy of AudioKit's functionality and only contains a fraction of the playgrounds available from within Xcode...

But, its a great start and good introduction to what kind of things are possible with AudioKit! Click here for the repo.


AudioKit V3.4.3

At the start of AudioKit 3.4 I announced that we'd be publicly sharing our goals and projects and AudioKit 3.4.3 is our initial version of Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support.

Thanks to great help from Daniel Clelland and Audiobus's own Michael Tyson (or The Amazing Michael Tyson as I like to call him), it was pretty easy to get Audiobus working!

We also have written a two example apps that use Audiobus and a tutorial on how these apps were built which can serve as a template for your own Audiobus / Inter-App Audio apps.

This release also includes changes for Swift 3.0.1 and Xcode 8.1.
