Auria on the iPad

A New Standard

With the ability to play 48 mono or stereo 24bit/96 kHz tracks simultaneously, record up to 24 of those tracks simultaneously (through a supported USB multichannel audio interface), and edit and mix with familiar tools and full parameter automation, it’s clear Auria sets a new standard for iPad multitrack recording.

What’s more, Auria’s 64-bit Double Precision architecture ensures ample headroom for plug-in processing and mix summing, transforming your iPad into a recording and mixing studio with sound quality that rivals most DAWs.

The depth is in the details. Like customizable pan laws. Like meters that are selectable between peak and RMS. Like full delay compensation for all tracks, including aux sends and subgroups. Complete with a vintage-inspired channel strip on every channel, a dedicated master channel strip, optional add-on effects engineered by renowned makers such as PSPaudioware, Overloud, FabFilter and Drumagog, and support for Dropbox, Soundcloud, and AAF, Auria truly raises the bar for recording and mixing on the iPad.

TECAuria has been nominated for the 2012 TEC Awards!

Record and Edit

When recording, Auria lets you set input levels and choose to monitor tracks with or without effects. Punch in and out or record using minutes and seconds, bars and beats, frames, or samples ruler. Set Auria to snap to bars and beats, events, cursor position, or grid, if you like.

Bring in audio from iTunes. Or sessions from Pro Tools, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer or other DAWs via AAF import. Zoom in for sample-accurate editing with cut, copy and paste. The optional Drumagog plug-in even lets you fine-tune your drum tracks.


Channel Strip

Turn your iPad to portrait orientation for 100mm long-throw faders controlling up to 48 mono or stereo tracks, each with two aux sends, and a PSP ChannelStrip with extensive EQ, expansion, compression and gating controls.

In addition, you can add up to 4 effect plug-ins to each channel. Do some frequency tweaking with the optional FabFilter Pro Q; or get an analog sheen with the optional PSP MicroWarmer.

On top of that are 8 subgroups, each of which can also accept 4 plug-ins. With full automation for both channel controls and plug-ins, Auria’s mixing power is unsurpassed on the iPad.


Superb ambience effects come with Auria, including Convolution Reverb featuring IR samples from MoReVox, ClassicVerb, PSP StereoChorus and PSP StereoDelay.

Optional plug-ins include PSPaudioware Echo and Micro Warmer, Fabfilter Pro Q, and Overloud THM plugins, and more. And because WaveMachine Labs is helping plugin manufacturers port their existing plugins to the iOS platform, more plugins will be available through In-App purchase.


PSPAudioware Mastering Section

Auria dazzles right through to final mixdown with the included PSP MasterStrip, featuring EQ, compression, and brick-wall limiting.

And because it all goes through Auria’s 64-bit Double-Precision summing engine, there’s plenty of headroom to prevent clipping.

Output as an .m4a or .wav file, use Audio Copy/Paste, or output directly to iTunes, Soundcloud, or Dropbox. Or export an AAF session which you can bring into Pro Tools, Nuendo, Logic, Digital Performer or other DAWs.

From the first input to the final mixdown, Auria’s stunning sound-sculpting tools and pristine audio reproduction will transform your iPad into an audio wonderland you simply won’t want to do without.
