Audiomovers, a UK-based software company developing pro audio tools, has today announced the launch of its latest offering: OMNIBUS. They tell us that OMNIBUS is exclusive to Mac, and allows you to route audio between applications and combine multiple audio sources into one virtual input. Here’s their press release with the details…
Routing audio is an age-old problem forcing anyone working with multiple audio sources into complicated software and hardware setups and workarounds. With its intuitive UI, OMNIBUS simplifies the process — elegantly wrangling the audio on your Mac. You can see where audio is coming from and going to on your Mac, and make new connections with a single click.
OMNIBUS has two powerful virtual drivers, making it easy to send your audio from point A to B in the simplest way, where you can then record, mix, compare, or transmit it out wirelessly with LISTENTO.
Igor Maxymenko, cofounder of Audiomovers, said, “We built Omnibus with Listento users in mind. It’s the next step in the Audiomovers’ ecosystem, but it stands alone in its own right. Everyone told us they needed a simpler solution for routing audio within their Macs and out into the world. Our aim with everything we do is to continue to remove the technical barriers from the creative process, enabling engineers, audio pros and hobbyists alike to spend more time creating and less time fighting with their setup. The software is easily configurable, allowing users to define channel layouts with channel names, volume and muting parameters – and making it the perfect tool for screencasts, managing audio for podcasts or panels, and even routing audio for gaming streams all from a user’s DAW. Users can save and load ‘snapshots’ – instantly switching between specific routing setups for specific workflows which can be loaded up with a single click.”
Mirek Stiles, Head of Audio Products at Abbey Road Studios, who is supporting the expansion of the Audiomovers product ecosystem, said “It’s the sort of innovative software where I think people will start using it in ways we don’t realise yet. Omnibus allows you to elegantly and quite simply, route any audio from within your Mac – like a virtual patch bay. Whether working on spatial audio or working on my next audio product, Omnibus gives me the control I need over my audio workflow, something which wasn’t possible before”
How it works —
Users can stream any audio on their Mac to the world with OMNIBUS and LISTENTO working together. OMNIBUS can be used to split out and send multichannel audio from any DAW to the LISTENTO app, and OMNIBUS’ two virtual drivers fully support the transmitting of spatial audio, be it surround, Dolby Atmos or Binaural.
LISTENTO subscribers can save up to 100% on the price, whilst new users can currently buy an OMNIBUS licence for the one-off price of $49.99, and are invited to demo OMNIBUS free for seven days.
OMNIBUS is supported on Mac OS X 10.15.7 or higher, with an unlimited number of physical devices, and up to two virtual devices. Users can learn more about the free demo here.
