  • Auria: 48 track iPad DAW Released

    When I ran into Craig at Winter NAMM, the first thing he did was take me over to the WaveMachine Labs booth to see Auria.

    Although there's no way a tablet DAW can manage the features and power of the best computer DAWs, I was nonetheless very impressed by how much WaveMachine Labs packed into an iPad app!

    And of course the tablet format has advantages that computer DAWs lack, such as a multitouch display, an even easier portability than a laptop, and an App store price of $49.99.

    Info here:

    Auria

    Plug-in maker PSP had a hand in designing Auria's effects. More here:

    Best,

    Professional looking product, I would probably get it if I ever get an iPad.

      As Geoff knows, I downloaded Auria last night. Pretty blown away so far. Just got myself a TASCAM IU2 interface for the iPhone/iPad and am eager to start using this as a sketchpad/portable recording rig.

        I'm pretty tempted to pick this up, but would need the camera kit and a usb interface as well (my main interface is firewire), so I'm holding off a bit to see how people like it. It would be awesome to be able to record my nephews band where they practice, or jamming at a friends house or just for recording acoustic guitars and vocals in the living room away from PC noise.

          Yeah, the quiet is definitely an advantage for acoustic stuff. And there are a few USB interfaces that don't require a camera kit because they're made to plug right into the iPad or iPhone dock. The TASCAM IU2 that I just got is one of those.

            This might be helpful:

            Obviously, it's not a comprehensive list; but it will let you know what's known by WaveMachine Labs to work and not work with Auria.

            Best,

              You know, a roundup of iPad interfaces would make a useful article. I wonder if anyone has done it yet.

                Not that I'm aware of Geoff, but that is a very good idea.

                    If the ASPCA ever decide to use THAT breed of puppy in their ads, donations will plummet.

                    A round up of the iPad interfaces would be sweet. I was wondering if the Reason Balance would work via the camera connection kit.

                      Auria Audio Interface Compatibility


                      There's certainly some good stuff there, but how does it get to "see" all of those inputs and outputs? Is there something like the Apple Core Audio system built into an iPad? In the Windows world, if you don't have an ASIO driver and a program that supports an ASIO driver, you only see two inputs or outputs, or at best a multi-output as a surround configuration.

                      Has anyone tricked out one of the larger interfaces like the Focusrite Scarlett 18i6 or PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL to see how many tracks you can actually record simultaneously without it choking? I assume that since it's billed as a 48 track DAW, it will play and mix 48 tracks simultaneously, but they have to get there somehow, and hopefully not just one or two at a time.

                      On the other hand, I know that I can record 16 tracks simultaneously on my cheap netbook using a Scarlett 18i6 and Reaper. It's only a little bigger than an iPad and doesn't cost me an extra $500.

                        I'm not sure of its status, but up through XP, the WDM-KS 'pro,' kernel-streaming drivers have provided full access to pro interfaces. (Definitely not to be confused with legacy WDM drivers, which, of course, must use on the fly sample rate conversion and so deliver compromised performance.) As I understand it, the WDM-KS standard was developed in tandem by Cakewalk and MS. (I believe CW has now pretty much fully adopted ASIO, but I'll admit I haven't been keeping up.)

                        I am just hoping they make and ipad with enough horsepower that I can mix on it.

                          The dance stuff is all mixed with TouchOSC and Launchpad, for other substyles I wouldn't use any iPad

                            Here's a list of compatible interfaces from the Auria website. The new update allows routing of individual updates, and people are having success with a $10.00 non- powered usb hub from ebay. I just got the Presonus 1818vsl because I wanted better pres...got a great deal. I'm excited to work with it - they make an Ipad app for mixing live - presonus has to be hooked up to a laptop, of course. Auria is a truly amazing app. I hope more people here will try it - I'd like to discuss it with others here :  )
