 It can be used to stream one or more audio streams between networked devices (desktop and mobile) and can even be used to on an iPad or iPhone to stream to itself in order to get audio streams into and out of apps that support AUv3 but not IAA or Audiobus protocols. It can be used to stream one or more audio streams between networked devices (desktop and mobile) and can even be used to on an iPad or iPhone to stream to itself in order to get audio streams into and out of apps that support AUv3 but not IAA or Audiobus protocols.

 +At this writing (March 2021), Sonobus for iOS is available through a public beta through the [[https://sonobus.net|Sonobus]] web site.

 +===== Mac-to-iPad/iPhone Fast Connections =====
 +For fast low-latency connections between and iOS device and a MacOS device, you can establish a network connection over a direct USB connection. In order to do this, go to the System Preferences on your MacOS device and turn on Sharing->Content Caching and turn on the //Internet Connection// option. Now, if you connect your iPad/iPhone to your Mac using a USB cable (for lightning based devices, use your USB/Lightning charging cable).

 **Private Group**. The simplest way is to use a Private Group. For the group name, enter the group name that all the Sonobus instances will connect to. For example, "myGarageBandSession". For the //Your Displayed Name// field, it is useful to use an identifier that will let you recognize what track is being sent/received. If you are sending multiple streams (such as when you went to send multiple tracks out of GarageBand), you may want to use the instrument name. This method requires that wifi is active, but if you are self-sending the packets actually will stay local without going to the router. **Private Group**. The simplest way is to use a Private Group.

-**Connect to Raw Address**. Sonobus will let you connect directly to another Sonobus instance directly even if wifi is turned off. For people that need to have wifi off, this method is convenient because you can enter use the address 127.0.0.1 which means "send to the device I am on" which works even if wifi is off. When using Connect to Raw Address, you enter the address of a different instance of Sonobus running on the same machine. +**Connect to Raw Address**.

For people that need to have wifi off, this method is convenient because you can enter use the address 127.0.0.1 which means "send to the device I am on" which works even if wifi is off. When you tap on "Connect to Raw Address", Sonobus displays the unique address of the instance you are editing. The unique local address consists of the device's IP number (which will look like something like 192.168.1.05) a colon (:) and 5-digit number. The 5-digit number is called a port number. It allows each instance on the same device to have a unique identifier. When using Connect to Raw Address, you will enter as Host the IP address and port number of the Sonobus instance you want to connect to. Don't enter the the Local Address as the Host, use the Local Address of a different Sonobus instance. The IP number will be the same for both instances, but they will have different port numbers.

-**STUB -- MORE PICTURES NEEDED HERE**+=== Setting up the Input Mixer in the Master Instance === 
 +In the master Sonobus instance that actually sends the audio out, you need to bring in each of the sources that you want to send out. In the Sonobus receivers, the receiver will be able to grab whichever of the sources are needed.

 +MONITORING SETUP 
 +By default, each input is monitored by the main Sonobus instance (the sender) rather than on its own bus. It is usually convenient to have each input monitored on its original bus. The pictures below demonstrate how to set this up.
