Auria is a mobile music production system designed from the ground up for the iPad. With professional-level features like third-party plug-in support from names like FabFilter, PSPAudioware and Drumagog (optional purchases), AAF support and more, Auria clearly sets a new standard for mobile recording.

Not Ready Yet


This is a great app with a whole heap of potential; however, it's not ready for this medium yet. It crashes all the time due to the amount of power it needs even when you freeze most tracks that you are not using. It's hard to work with one track even when 6-8 tracks are frozen. I can't imagine trying 48. Much of the time, it accuses you the IPad of having too many programmes open when anyone who knows the IPad and how it uses power knows that IPads don't work that way. It's just this programme using too much power.

In time, I'm pretty sure that this programme will come to be as synonymous with music production as Logic, Cubase or Lemur - which is light years ahead. But, there is a way to go on the power consumption and what is available to it for use.

If you are used to using Logic or any of the other plethora of PC or laptop based programmes, you will be at least annoyed with the programme at this early stage and at most disappointed that you can't do everything that you wish you could on some of the more stable and less power consuming mediums.



Recently purchased Auria as I wanted to try out Ipad music production. I have been used to using Sonar x3 and this app compares very favourably for me. I don’t use midi, so don’t mind the lack of it with this version but I understand a new version is coming out soon that has midi.
I can do all that I did on Sonar with this product and of course its all a lot more portable to record band members and complete all the mixing and mastering on the app. I am running it on an ipad 2 and have had no problems other than when I tried to do a little too much with a number of plugins and inter app audio to another mastering programme, but a quick restart sorted out the problem.
I can highly recommend this application as it has all the functionality you could want for straight forward recording, mixing and even some mastering, it works well, is easy to use and runs on older hardware so you can set up at minimal cost to try out ipad music production.

Great step forward


This is really pushing audio recording on the iPad forward. Only major omission is the lack of midi track recording (at least I couldn't find it). Reseting your ipad before a multi track recording session is advisable even on 64gb iPad). Effects are ok, if not outstanding. Scrolling of project views can be sluggish (at least on my ipad2) but does not effect working with the project.

The total cost of all effects and other add ons comes to $150 at the moment but will hopefully expand over time. Bundling of effects into deals would have been nice to reduce costs. Not having a default IQ is a bit cheeky as it is a must have. Given the alternatives this is however forgivable.

Nice touches like microphone polarity setting (for example for decoupling bass drum and snare drum mikes), advanced sync setting, drop box integration and so on all combine to ask the question...is it now possible to do proper studio style recordings on your iPad. For me it is definitely good enough. Does it replace logic? Of course not, this is an iPad :)

Wish list:
- Midi support
- Direct export to my own iTunes music library
- Auto quantise
- Build in good IQ

This is an outstanding effort. Please add midi support :)
