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.

I give Auria 5 stars because I’ve used it for 4 or maybe 5 years now and it’s my escape.. it’s like a video game where you get to manipulate sounds and place them where you want on the canvas however... since the 11.0.2 update I can’t keep it running at all... my drum trax keep going out of sync... I’m running at a hi Quality but even if I go down in buffer use the standard core and take it off 64 bit it just starts crackling then I close it out... when I re-open it says a crash occurred... I admit I’m running a lot of fab filter A LOT but I freeze as I go and my cpu usually hangs around 16%... I’m pretty efficient at keeping an optimal cpu% and tinkering around until all is running good. We shouldn’t cry to you guys every time there’s a little glitch and find a way to make it run, but this is atomic level stuff happening... charged my iPad before the hurricane hit so I could just chill enjoy a rare day off work and bam! No mixing for me... this is my crack cocaine people... please fix it 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Best iOS DAW hands down, but...


4 stars instead of 5 because even on my iPad Pro it still crashes occasionally. It crashed much more often on my older iPad Air 1, especially when I added multiple track effects. Clearly, Auria needs a lot of available memory to run effectively.

The major problem with the program is the much anticipated MIDI functionality, which still is just too buggy to be useful. I’ve had nearly complete song files completely lost due to glitches with MiDI tracks. In other cases, the contents of MIDI tracks just inexplicably disappeared, requiring me to re-record entire tracks. Until those issues are fixed, I simply don’t trust the MIDI functionality of Auria, and avoid using it altogether.

The above criticisms aside, as a digital audio recorder, Auria is second to none for iOS. It’s not as user friendly as, say, Harmonic Dog’s DAW, or the much cheaper Garage Band, but it’s absolutely worth the extra learning curve and money to get access to some very professional sounding effects.

This is my go to DAW, for sure. I just wish the MIDI functionality was more trust worthy.

#1 DAW on iOS


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.
