Hi ,

is it possible , to use Aerodrums in garageband as a audio unit(AU) or to record Aerodrums as audio-track?

Kind regards Michael

Hi, Aerodrums isn't available as an AU or VST plugin.
I can think of 3 options:
1. The most straightforward option is to use the built-in recording feature of Aerodrums. This will let you record and later export your performance to a single wav file or to a separate wav file per drum piece. You can then bring these wav files into Garageband.
2. It might be possible to get Garageband to receive the raw audio from Aerodrums directly using a free audio routing program like Soundflower. I have never tried this personally.
3. If you're happy to use Garageband's drum samples or samples from another AU, you can set Aerodrums in MIDI mode and have Garageband receive MIDI from Aerodrums.

Hi Richard,

thanx a lot! It Works via Soundflower and configuring it in Audio/Midi-Setup.
I think, this is a very good way of getting the superb Aerodrum-Samples into Garageband .

Regards, Michael

Good to hear that! Thanks for letting us know that the Soundflower option works well.

on the windows side of this, the soundflower equivalent is called rewire I think. is aerodrums rewire capable? if not could it be added as an update?

No, Aerodrums doesn't have ReWire support though it is something we could potentially add.

Do you only have convenience in mind or is there a particular use case that it enables that you can't achieve currently using Aerodrums' built-in recording/export WAV feature?

It would be mostly a convenience/fun thing to try. I have not tried the recording to separate wave files yet. I'm sure that would work. I just thought it would be cool to have tracks running in my DAW (Ableton live 9) while playing and recording the drum track in real time. 8-)
