If you are the sort who likes to create your own tunes, and you want to be able to do it on the road using your iPad this new app is for people just like you. The app is called Auria, and it comes from WaveMachine Labs. The app has debuted at the 2012 Winter NAMM show and will sell for $49.99. That makes it one of the more expensive apps for the iPad, but it appears to offer a lot for the audio fan.
Auria is a 48-track digital audio workstation, and it was made from the ground up to be used in the pro-level studio and live tracking applications. It has all the tools that are required for the recording, mixing, and editing of projects. The app supports AAF import/export, which allows the user to move projects between other digital audio workstations such as Pro Tools and Nuendo.
The app also has 64-bit double precision architecture and can record up to 24 tracks at the same time using USB audio interfaces. The iPad 2 can handle 48 tracks of simultaneous playback, but the iPad 1 is limited to 24 tracks of playback at one time. To record tracks the app requires the user to have the Camera Connection Kit and a compatible USB Class 2 audio interface. The app should land in the app store in Q1 2012.
