"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.

Excellent app, and kudos for great voiceover support
Apparently I had tried this app quite a while ago, and found it unusable. This is completely different now, and I've been able to use and try the great functionality here! This is the first App I've found that lets you edit in very fine detail without being able to see the screen, as its VoiceOver support is very well designed! To be a multi-track app as well is really fantastic! Its nice to finally have a portable tool for audio editing and recording. Its very easy to use, and has a lot of functionality even without the extra packages. I intend to add the extras as well, as they will no doubt be very nice to have available. Thanks for thinking of users who use accessibility, without compromising the functionality, and for providing so much power and flexibility!
Works for me!
I tried several similar apps and found this one to be the best for my needs. I wanted to be able to import a song, cut it up for my daughter's dance/skating recitals and produce a result that I could easily send to others. This apps allowed me to do that quite easily. It has a couple of initially less than intuitive features for song clipping, but once you figure them out, it is a snap to do. A few more song cuts and I will try to come back and leave a comment on how to use these features to quickly clip a song and export for use.
Issues...but has potential if dev will listen
Well, this app has issues especially when it comes to exporting and importing projects, but if dev will fix those then this app may be worth something.
I redid an import/export between 2 iPads 10x before I figured out that the audio just won't play unless you select a random area in track before pressing play.
Really annoying that the bar will move across like it is playing the audio yet no sound comes out unless you select an area in the track and press play again.
The next issue is the cost of the addons...... Too expensive.
If I am going to pay that much. Then I am just going to purchase a different app with better features
