This is an AUv3 compatible Multi-Track Recorder plugin specifically designed for AUM and other DAW's that don't support audio recording capabilities.
MultiTrack can be used for a host of purposes such as a tool for recording and layering audio for export to other DAW's , creating that perfect loop for other third party applications or recording vocal sessions to accompany you in AUM. Its uses are endless.
It features the ability to record up to 8 mono or stereo audio tracks per instance, with the ability to run multiple instances under the control of your host DAW. MultiTrack has the ability to run standalone using it's own transport or synced to a host which allows synchronous control of multiple instances.
MultiTrack supports various recording modes including the ability to set punch in and out points for sample accurate recordings. Press the Host Sync in order to the advantage of the hosts transport controls or enable the remote button to enable host recording controls (great for NS2).
Use the Audio Pool window to quickly and easily import, export and perform mix-downs of audio clips. Quickly and easily move audio files using drag and drop to the time line or between the audio pool and the Files App. Imported audio is automatically converted to the projects sample rate. The audio pool also features the ability to copy and paste audio directly from the iOS pasteboard as well as preview and manage your data.
An intergrated 8 channel mixer allows you to control the level, pan and effect send levels. Although AUM allows some great routing options for third party effects, MultiTrack also includes an extremely CPU friendly beat synced delay and reverb which can be used where recording pre-effected instruments is not an option.
MultiTrack allows per clip volume level as well as being able to control start and end cropping and fade in/out on a clip by clip basis. All these operations are quick and easy to make using the touch screen alone.
Also included is the ability to perform operations such as splitting, normalising, reversing and time stretching of audio clips all with a multi-level undo built right in. A comprehensive set of selection, copying and duplication tools make editing a breeze.
Each track has it's own mute, solo and metering which can also be used to monitoring incoming signal levels. Finally you have the ability to mix down a selected range of your song or create perfectly looped samples for use in other DAW's , samplers and drum machines such as DigiStix.

Ratings and Reviews
Needs its own file folder system and the ability to record multiple tracks at once.
So to best use the app now one should create folders in the files app to drag n drop them in or out when needed.
Developer Response ,
We produced the first ever AUv3 recorder and as an AUv3 plugin we can't actually access any file system. The audio pool is essentially the folders you were talking about and you can drag and drop between the audio pool, the files App and the timeline. I will be adding more support in future versions so please be patient.
So Close to Perfect
This is a great quality app that fills a huge hole in iOS music making for any workflow that doesn’t include one of the full fledged DAWs. Well, mostly fills it. Just one small change and it’s perfect as far as I’m concerned.
All this app needs is a way to arm recording from within the app when the “Remote” function is enabled. Right now, disengaging Host Sync and engaging Remote lets you set a loop range for playback, but forces you to start recording only with the Host’s record button. AUM won’t let you press record unless you have something armed to record ... which you don’t need if you’re using this app. And, AudioBus doesn’t even have a record button, so it’s useless for that there.
I’m hopeful this one last, simple, piece will be added, but so far, though the developer has been quick to add other features this one has been met with silence.
I hate to take off a star for just that, but it really does remove a significant amount of the usefulness IMO. Hoping I can pop that fifth star on there soon. Because this is an IOS essential app.

Thanks for the very positive review. Some times we have to work within the restrictions of AUv3 but if you have any suggestions on how I could achieve the remote recording please let me know. I'm happy to take a look at any suggestions that help improve the product.
Rock solid and feature rich! One of the most responsive and meticulous developers. When/if MIDI song position becomes ubiquitous in other apps (AUM) we will have a flexible modular DAW system we can custom fit to our workflow.

Thanks for the great feedback. I'm pleased so many AUM users can now take advantages of recording audio... it's a great app and this makes it even better!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
