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.

Ratings and Reviews
Auria is the best
The quality of sounds, the control you have over things, the effects built in are as good or better than any DAW on iOS, and right up there with desktop ones. The Fabfilter plugins are very powerful and easy to use, as are the other effects you can purchase. I have the highest appreciation and respect for the creator of Auria. If you want to sound your best, this is the DAW to use.
This thing is a beast and capable of delivering top notch multitrack product.
The preamp compression/limiter, eq, gate/expander is enough to frighten any GarageBand user ... that being said, take this thing seriously.
It can be used with all of your audio apps and will work with your iPad mic, but obviously this thing was made with professional bussing in mind.
It crashes here and there, but don’t they all?
Is it worth the cash? I’d say yes, especially given what you get with the midi upgrade in the oscillators.
I produced music on desktop DAWs for about 20 years. All I can say is that user interface on a tablet is so much better than a mouse; audio editing, fades, fader control, EQ, are all just a joy to use here. Audiocopy/Audioshare means importing from other apps or your own stored sounds is super easy. IAA also allows you to use other apps as plu-ins. Included plug-ins are good, but pick up the FabFilter stuff as well, and there will be little you can't do here. All you can ask for in a DAW on the iPad. Quite simply, until Auria came around, I didn't feel like I could do a finished, professional quality track on the iPad; now I do. And functionality is great, but you will want to have all other apps closed, and for sure, plenty of memory.
Update: one star taken off for general bugginess. When it works, it's brilliant, but even running the latest update on an iPad Pro, I have had several occasions where, mid-project, audio files disappear, or play back as noise or not at all. The occasional bug I would ignore, but there have been several times this year where I spent entire days trying to fix corrupted projects. Be sure to back up everything on a regular basis, I prefer Auria's interface to my desktop DAW, but unfortunately it's not anywhere near as stable yet. I suspect some of the problem here may lie with Apple and it's constant tweaking of iOS.
