Final Touch is a full-featured and professional audio post production system for iPad.
Combining maximizer, equalizer, 4-band compressor, stereo imager, reverb, and dithering into one integrated app, it gives your mixes a polished and professional sound.
Top-Notch Sound Quality
Building on Positive Grid’s expertise in DSP research and masterful integration of iOS vDSP double-precision architecture, Final Touch is a dedicated mastering system with superior data integrity and high-resolution processing capability. The result is a set of creative and professional tools that deliver masters that sound not just louder, but clearer, wider, fuller and more powerful and detailed.
Unequaled Control and Metering
All Final Touch’s modules (with the exception of the stereo imager and maximizer), can solo or bypass their left, right, mid, or side channel, and either mode’s two channels can be linked. Four high-resolution faders for left- and right-channel inputs and outputs are flanked by highly visible multi-colored ladder meters, fader and level readouts, and clip indicators. Faders can be linked, maintaining any previously created offsets. Global and module-based presets, transport controls, a waveform overview, undo and redo functions, and import and export facilities provide the ultimate in control and status monitoring.

I used this a couple of times. And I haven't been able to use it. It just keeps crashing. It opens, then crashes and doesn't work.

Hi, thank you for the feedback. Would you like to write us with your current ID on https://help.positivegrid.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and tell us more about the problem you have encountered?
I like it but...
This app is awesome but it does have its bugs. As a Stan alone app it worked flawlessly however when I tried to run it on the master with Cubasis it didn’t work. There is a work around as you must launch Final Touch before launch Cubasis then the inter app connection is successful I mixdown a track and it worked however at the end of the mixdown I got all kinds of noise from the app. That being said I wish it could run as an Audio Unit also, just make it more stable when running with Cubasis. The presets are a great starting point and I really love the interface it’s reminiscent of Ozone. Another feature They should add is Google Drive uploads right now it only pleads to ftp or Dropbox I would love to be able to bounce my files to google drive, also it would be nice if they also added an Aural Exciter as an option or a in app purchase. So far I like it but they should really work on the stability while running within other apps and also more connectivity options such as google drive.
Crashes in iOS 11.1.2 & 11.2.1
I have updated to iOS 11.2.1 and it still crashes. Have also tried running the app before loading anything else and it still crashes. I’m removing stars because this has been happening for over a month and others seem to be reporting it as well. I reported the problem via the developer web site and nothing recommended has worked.
After upgrading to 11.1.2, it just crashes. I’ve uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled, and rebooted. Still crashes after being open for a few seconds. Let me know if you need more info. It’s a great app.
