Audiomovers OMNIBUS 3.0

27th June 2024

Audiomovers have released OMNIBUS 3.0 – a major update to the virtual patchbay for Mac.

As well as new networking options, OMNIBUS 3.0 also features a revamped UI and improvements to existing features for far greater flexibility when routing audio.
The audio routing software - which operates like a virtual patchbay between applications and audio devices on a Mac - now features networking functionality, with support for NDI® and AVB network protocols.

This new networking functionality means OMNIBUS 3.0 can send and receive multichannel audio from any other machines on the same network, turning any Mac into an audio device with full multichannel I/O. (OMNIBUS can send and receive 256 channels of audio via AVB or 128 with NDI, but users can create multiple AVB ‘devices’ in OMNIBUS to send and receive audio).

OMNIBUS 3.0 represents an affordable and simplified routing solution for recording and post-production facilities like Abbey Road, allowing us to move multichannel audio between machines and different rooms at low latency. OMNIBUS 3.0 is in use in every room at the studios, from Studio One to writing rooms, bypassing the need for visiting clients to install drivers on their machines or navigate complex routing configurations, saving on average an hour of setup time per session.

New Features Include:

• Route multichannel audio between different machines connected to the same network via AVB or NDI®.

• Four configurable virtual audio devices with up to 256 I/O channels per device.

• Separate system and application audio outputs and use applications as audio sources in the OMNIBUS routing matrix.

• Save and load routing snapshots or entire OMNIBUS sessions and open them on other machines.

• Switch routing snapshots from an Elgato Stream Deck, MIDI controller, key commands or Hot Snapshot panel.
OMNIBUS already allows Mac users to route audio seamlessly between all devices - physical and virtual - connected to their Mac, but OMNIBUS 3.0 adds application capture, so users can easily grab audio from any software running, rather than needing to route that audio first to a virtual device.

OMNIBUS retails for $199.99 and is available now from

Existing OMNIBUS 2.0 owners will have the option to upgrade to OMNIBUS 3.0 for the reduced price of $24.99, while those with an active LISTENTO Pro subscription and OMNIBUS 2.0 license can upgrade for free.
