Since its announcement in 2015, the number of audio units (AUv3) released on iOS has increased extraordinarily! But this success has some drawbacks, having a great overview of your plugins has become much more difficult and most of the time everything is mixed up.

AUBE is the app you need to get your collection organised. It provides a great overview of your audio units, your effects and instruments are automatically listed and classified. Information such as group, categories and features, are already available for more than 1200 audio units!

Searching in AUBE is easy and fast! Just tap the Quick Search textfield on the dashboard and enter your desired criteria – whether it's the group, category, feature, or tag. Your search is not only quick but also precise, providing instant access to the perfect AUv3 plugins for your creative needs.

• Explore, filter, set your favorites and create your own tags
• Your AUv3 effects and instruments are organised
• Information, such as group, categories and features, are already available
• Keep your offloaded AUv3 plugins under control
• Use the keyboard extension to locate your AUv3s in your hosts, such as Logic Pro for iPad
• Share badges on social media
• iCloud• Light/Dark mode• Universal

AUBE Keyboard Extension: If your AUv3 host, such as Logic Pro, Loopy Pro, AUM, Drambo, Zenbeats or ApeMatrix, provides a search text field in their audio units list dialog, you can locate your audio units right away with the AUBE keyboard!

• The audio units are grouped and classified by effects and instruments
• You can filter your collection by categories and/or by user tags
• If you are looking for more inspiration, tap the dice button to get a random AUv3!
• The keyboard can be expanded and supports floating mode

Database & Updates: The AUBE database is regularly updated with new plugins released, and already contains more than 1200 AUv3s!

• The latest version of the database is included for FREE in each new AUBE app update provided via the App Store
• There is no schedule defined, a new AUBE app update is released when new features are added or bugs fixed
• You can purchase an 90 days access to the latest database versions on the AUBE store (In-app consumable purchase*)
• Getting the latest version of the database via the AUBE store is quicker, and it's a great way to support AUBE :)

This is a Must Have

One click, open one app, and see everything you have. If your like me you probably have dozens of effects, instruments, sequencers etc. all over your desktop. I remember trying to organize the desktop with tons of hyper specific folders each named to make it easy to find what I’m looking for. Well I couldn’t usually find what I was looking for and I just stopped maintaining the desktop. It’s a mess now. Pages and pages of cool icons, most of which I have no idea what they are.
This app fixes all that. I think I even sleep better now 🤔

One of a kind. I have needed this for a long time.

Please Please Please. Release this for Mac desktop.
Amazing app from amazing developer. All your apps are top notch.
Works awesome in logic for iPad. Keep up the good work.
If you own a lot of effects and synths then this is a must buy.

Some drawbacks

It is a cool app to be able to categorize all you AUv3 apps. But it highly annoys me that older apps that are no longer are supported on the app store are removed from the database and thst these will no longer show up in your AUBE collection. Because these apps are no longer on the App store doesn’t mean that i no longer wish to use these if i already paid for them. But the app will no longer make these available to you. This is a big negative for me. With every new update i see the number of my apps in the collection decrease instead of increase. Very annoying and counter productive!
