  1. Yes! waiting for this puppy eagerly. Auria is my workhorse even while using Ableton (newbie) so will expect to use Auria Pro well into 2015. Plus all my Fab Filters are on my Auria. Hehehe,,,,not likely going to buy everything on the Mac. Not so rich. So my poor man’s Auria rig will have to do for now. Come on Auria, fill ‘er up!

  2. Absolutely, worth the entry price alone for FabFilter stuff, it is stunning!

    Likewise, I can’t afford the price tag on the full desktop versions so having access to them in Auria is a real pleasure – thanks WML!

    Update looks fantastic. Serious audio processing power in a wafer thin tablet – it’s kinda hard to believe!

  3. Looks good. Interesting choice to have quantizing ONLY as non-destructive realtime process. I guess one could bounce it if they wanted a destructive version. It would be nice if they included more note:beat ratios in a destructive version of the quantize back in the pianoroll editor.

    Looks like triplets are the only tuplets available, but they didn’t scroll that grid list, so it’s hard to say.

    It remains to be seen what the workflow will be like. Hopefully they’ll have that tweaked before release.

    I got Auria and don’t use it much, as it doesn’t work very well on my iPad 4. I’m very happy with my DAW on my RMBP, and with Multitrack Studio on the iPad, so I don’t think I’ll take the plunge on this.

  4. Now this app is starting to look like a go-to. I bet it takes a new iPad to get much out of it though. It would be interesting to hear what performance is with something like only 8 tracks running.

    1. Realistically, I think will have to continue bouncing the tracks to audio, rather than having a bunch of synth running at the same time.

      It can handle multiple tracks of audio with no problem, but my iPad Air 1 can struggle with some of the soft synthesizers that are available now.

  5. It’s very cpu efficient. It could run 24 tracks of audio with a few plugins on an iPad 1(just). I have a session open now on an iPad air2 with 10 stereo tracks running, a convolution reverb, a couple of other effects and an eq/compressor on every channel and its flitting between 5 and 6% cpu usage and that’s in low latency audiobus mode. IAA instruments can quickly eat up the cpu, but still, deeply impressive stuff.

    With the midi and realtime warp this will be awesome.
