AUM is the flexible audio mixer, recorder, and connection hub for your iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Connect hardware inputs and outputs, Audio Unit extensions, Inter-App Audio apps, Audiobus, soundfile players, built-in signal processing and filters, in any configuration you want.

Route anything to anywhere with mix-busses, effect sends, audiobus ports, and external multi-channel audio interfaces.

Play hosted synths and instruments using the built-in keyboard or external MIDI controllers, or sequence them with AU MIDI plugins or from other apps using Virtual MIDI.

Record mixes, individual tracks, or both, straight into the storage space of AudioShare (no copying of files needed), with synchronized start and end for perfect loops.

Play back recordings, soundfiles and loops as channel sources in the mixer for backing tracks, further processing or mixing. Soundfiles can be opened from anywhere, including USB drives on iOS 13 and later.

Route and filter MIDI in any way you like using the MIDI matrix. Combine and filter MIDI endpoints using MIDI buses.

Synchronize everything with the transport clock and play in time with other apps or devices using Ableton Link. Connect external music machines and synchronize them with MIDI Clock.

Includes built-in processing nodes for various stereo processing, Mid/Side balance and conversion, EQs and filters, limiting, clipping and saturation. Or use any 3rd party Audio Unit extension or Inter-App Audio effect.

All controls in the mixer can be controlled via MIDI, including parameters of hosted and built-in plugins.

Finally Found My Favorite iOS Workflow

I’ve been doing iOS music for many years. People always raved about AUM, and used it in videos. I held off for awhile using other DAWs/Hosts that were great for me at that time, but never quite perfect. As I learned more, and the development of apps progressed, I began to see the value of AUM and finally purchased it. I hate to use buzzwords, but it was a complete game changer for my workflow, my music production, and my songwriting. The app has stepped up my game and helped me learn so much. It’s just brilliant in so many ways. It lets you pick and choose the pieces you need, in a very open and creative way, instead of feeling like a closed workspace. It’s super stable, great gui, great built in fx & features. There’s also been several amazing updates that continue to make this the best app for music production on the App Store. Not sure where my music would be without 3.5 years of daily AUM usage. I can’t sit here and say it’s for everyone because workflow is a personal choice, based on feeling comfortable, creative, and being able to do the things you want to do. I will say this app can basically do everything. It completely revolutionized my music making, and made so many things “click” for me. I can’t recommend this app enough. My most used app, hands down. 10 Stars!


This is the best workflow on any device.

I’ve been using this with AudioShare for years now and I really want to be able to use it on my brand new Mac. What’s it gonna take for you to make a version that is available and signed on the Macstore for macOS? I use logic and I believe this would be a very big compliment with logic. If we all pitched in a dollar we could get this thing rolling.

It reminds me of the board that I trained on when I was younger. I trained on a very expensive pro tools board that was analog and digital, and the size of a cathedral hall. this makes everything so much easier. Please make this available for macOS for those of us that have the newer Mac’s. If you’re reading this, thanks for reading and I hope this inspires you because you are one talented developer. I hope that you’re able to port this over soon. This would complement logic very well. I don’t normally do reviews. AudioShare should also be ported over as it is indispensable in my workflow, I was trained to always cut and fade as they say in ProTools, but this made it so much easier with AudioShare and AUM. thank you for making music fun again.

Still Unmatched

For nearly a decade I’ve been doing sound design and composing music using my iOS devices. While at first a lot of that was out of curiosity and for my own amusement, its become a viable professional platform in the last few years. One app has been a constant through almost all of that time, AUM. I can’t even imagine what doing sound work on iOS would be like without this app having been made. The developer has also done a phenomenal job of staying close to the community, listening to feedback and continually improving the app over the years. It has only gotten better and more incredible. Now there is Logic for the iPad but they aren’t the same thing and aren’t mutually exclusive in any way. I really kind of wish there was AUM available for macOS so I could just work in the same way. Regardless, its absolutely essential imo and worth every single penny. A big thank you to the dev. I see you man, big ups for all your work.
