iOS Audio R/Evolution!

Audio enthusiasts – this is IMPRESSIVE! – Auria app for iPad will feature:

  • the ability to play 48 mono or stereo 24bit/44.1 kHz tracks simultaneously
  • record up to 24 of those tracks simultaneously (through any supported USB multichannel audio interface)
  • edit and mix with an interface similar to Pro Tools
  • Integrated FX processing
  • Bring in audio from iTunes, OR sessions from Pro Tools, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer or other DAWs via AAF import!!!


iPad 2 recommended; iOS 5 required. Auria will record from the iPad mic, but a compatible USB Class 2 audio interface and Camera Connection Kit is recommended. iPad 1 is limited to 24 tracks. Some plug-ins are optional.

This app is definitely on my wish list!


From WaveMachineLabs:
“Auria is a 48 track digital audio workstation designed exclusively for the iPad. Built from the ground up to be used in professional studio and live tracking applications, Auria includes the necessary tools for recording, mixing, and editing any project. Auria introduces innovative features such as AAF import/export for moving sessions between popular DAWs (like Pro Tools and Nuendo), 64-bit double precision architecture, and up to 24 tracks of simultaneous recording using compatible USB audio interfaces.

WaveMachine Labs has teamed with PSPaudioware to offer a powerful vintage-inspired channel strip on every channel, plus a mastering processor on the master and subgroup channels. Auria also features a first among mobile apps – VST plugin support; Auria includes several bundled plugins (convolution reverb, stereo chorus and delay, classicVerb and a pitch processor). Plug-ins by PSPAudioware, Overloud Audio Tools, Fabfilter and more will be available through in-app purchase. WaveMachine Labs is pioneering the effort to develop the VST standard on iOS, allowing manufacturers to easily port their existing plugins to the iPad.
