The best… for some things

Ive got them all, except that fruity whatever and the various abandonware.

I don’t find Auria particularly fast for building tracks, but I love the midi controls. I will often times sketch out tracks in NS, AEM, or CBsis. But once I have things sketched, I import midi into Auria and reload instruments for tracking sessions additional live players, via mics or midi.

Track timing has never been an issue using an 18 channel X-air as interface. It all just lines up.

Auria is about the mix. The compressors are lovely, especially the bus/master, and the eq is very effective as well. Just started using the gates/expanders, but I’m learning they are very good as well. I suggest bringing the aux returns back on faders via track routing in the mixer, and I’m experimenting with the flexible bus routing as well. Nothing to report except that it looks very interesting, particularly for summed triggers and SC things. And it sounds great, particularly if you switch the 64 bit mixer.

PSP IAPs are good, but Drumagog is awesome. I can track a drum kit in a small room, and post record use the skin mics as triggers, and blend the OH in for a very fast and solid drum track.

Editing is a bit clunky, but you can get it done. The selectable fade curves is a great tool for both edits and long mastering fade outs.

Auria can be flaky. A crashed AUV3 inside of the Auria mixer can cause extreme mayhem. The mayhem is magnified by the sloppy file maintenance, and the new session sometimes created each time you launch after crashing. The file process also makes versioning more off a forethought, and backup saves become primary working files if you don’t save the backup and then reload the primary. A quick look in the files app at the local files is frightening. Blech, but I can deal with it

I keep trying to find better, but for now, for mixing and a few post production things, this is it.

If you need amazing auto tune though, AEM wins hands down.

Extremely unreliable

Tbh…it has a lot of features but at this point it feels like the developer has zero interest in this app aside from getting money from new suckers who buy this app. The updates are just sad…all the plugins are just thrown in together and are extremely unorganized to the point it’s a hassle looking for 3rd party apps. I’ve always hated that there’s no manual punch in and the developer has made it clear that because he sees no use for it…..nobody else needs it, lol. But all that aside…it crashes ALL the time….to the point that I could NEVER rely on using it to record a song…let alone risk recording a live performance or show… will almost 99.9% experience a crash. And at this point it’s almost like the developer doesn’t care……AT ALL. I could never recommend this app to anyone…’s literally the most unstable app on my iPad to the point that even though I’ve invested in some pretty pricey iap’s, I’m ready to throw in the towel…delete from my IPad and just take the L. There’s a reason it has a 2.9 rating at the point of this review and you should definitely believe it’s with good reason. It crashes every single time I use it.

Very disappointed, crashed right upon starting it up…

I read the reviews and saw that this was a powerhouse and the best DAW, the closest to a desktop DAW, supposedly. I immediately opened it up and started watching a tutorial and learning the app. I touched the keyboard option on the top left corner and the app crashed. I then restarted my iPad. Tried again…crashed. Reset settings, same outcome. Then I reinstalled the app and made sure my OS was running the latest version, only to find that Auria crashed again.

I then avoided the keyboard option and tried launching an AU3 app and it did not show the app, which left that option useless. I’m waiting to see if customer support responds to the forum, but getting close to ask for a refund. A $49 app should not need crash support on day 1!
