Music recording apps for the iPad are becoming more and more popular these days as developers and manufacturers release new software and hardware on a regular basis. Now Wave Machine Labs are announcing their latest Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) for the iPad, the Auria.
Music making apps for the iPad are currently seen as more useful alongside musicians’ main recording rig rather than instead of them. This perception, however, may be changed with this new app. Wave Machine Labs’ Auria is a a 48-track iPad music production app that allows users to record up to 24 tracks simultaneously, provided they have a suitable USB audio interface.
In order to record music, the app requires users to have a Camera Connection Kit and a compatible USB audio interface.
The Auria also features AAF support, so users can copy their session files to their main DAW such as Nuendo and Pro Tools; multitrack editing; and VST plug-in support, which is one of the most interesting features of this app. Note that plug-ins are in iOS format only, so you won’t be able to use your own, which is pretty bad.
The new app also comes with a number of free plug-ins that have been provided by Wave Labs’ partnership with PSPaudioware. These plug-ins include stereo chorus and delay, convolution reverb, classicVerb and a pitch processor. More plug-ins created by PSPaudioware, Overloud Audio Tools, Fabfilter and more will be available once the app is launched in the first quarter of 2012.
