"Hokusai will convince you that audio was meant to be edited with a touch screen — it's just so natural within this app that you’ll find yourself consistently coming back to it." — iOS Music And You
Hokusai is a multitrack audio editor for iPhone or iPad. Record or import a track, and make it sound the way you want it to: not just trimming the ends, but full cut, copy, paste and delete, and a suite of filters and special effects available.
Edit many tracks side-by-side, mix them together, and export to wave or mp4 format — then transfer them to your computer via USB or Dropbox, or send them to another app on your device.
Hokusai is streamlined to give you a clean, clear view of your tracks. Use the familiar pinch and swipe gestures to zoom right in and fiddle with fine detail, or step back to see the big picture. And just like selecting text in other apps, you can select pieces of audio. Live "scrubbing" means you can hear the sound under your fingertip as you make your adjustments. And you needn't fear a bad edit with our full undo/redo support: as many levels as space allows.
Hokusai comes free with a set of useful tools such as fade in/out, normalise volume levels, reverse time, and basic synthesis. If you need more power, you can upgrade from inside the app to add new tools and effects, including: AudioCopy/AudioPaste, Time Bar (time line/ruler), per-track volume/mute dial, grain synthesis, noise gating, time-stretching, pitch-bending, echo, reverb, modulation (AM & FM), resonance, distortion, grunge, vocal levelling, monster voice, high/low/band-pass/notch-cut filter and more.

Edit audio and then mangle it with horrid effects!
As many have said, you can record audio that sounds great, and you can cut that audio into pieces if that is what you need. I was hoping the effects would actually help me to further edit the sound itself, but the effects are pathetically implemented. I know DSP programming is tricky, but other developers seem to figure it out ok often enough. The filters in this app are impossible to use with any precision; but worse, no matter what you might think you have achieved with them, when you export the audio, it sounds awful.
This is not the sample editor you are looking for. Seriously.
Simple, Decent Sound, Crashes A Lot
I like the app, it's easy to use, has good sound for the basic recording of ideas or rehearsals, etc, but it crashes a lot during basic editing (mostly for me, when I am trying to copy part of an audio file to a new document - crashes every time). I will say however that even with the crashing it does recover quickly and there has yet to be any lost data. I am keeping an eye on it for future updates with hopes this will be fixed. For the moment, I can only recommend it for non-critical recording instances...
This is the only app I use
This never crashes on my ipad. Even better than Audacity because silence is really silent, and I can zoom in and out on a track while it's playing. There are infinite layers of undo. Very easy to convert from mp4 to mp3 using one of the free file converters. In future updates, I'd love to be able to output mp3.
