Auria is a mobile music production system designed from the ground up for the iPad. With professional-level features like third-party plug-in support from names like FabFilter, PSPAudioware and Drumagog (optional purchases), AAF support and more, Auria clearly sets a new standard for mobile recording.

Ratings and Reviews
Worked great but now….
I had been using this as my primary DAW for a while then took some time away from it during the lockdown. Now that things are picking up, I decided to get back to using the program. For some reason, every time I use the metronome, it causes the mic to shut off. The mic will only come back on if I enable a Locator and drag the cursor through the locator. When I enable the channel and hit record, now some crazy wave forms show up while I’m recording. A little glitch that is causing some problems with the inputs. Hope this gets fixed.
Dated and neglected, resting on tired laurels
Auria (with Pro IAP) was groundbreaking when it released several years ago. It had a premium price tag, but delivered premium features: audio+MIDI, channels and busses, sends and returns, automation, a true DAW experience.
Since that time, whilst the iOS/iPadOS innovation ecosystem made leaps and bounds, Auria has wallowed, festered, and not really improved at all. The updates in the past few years have just served to keep the lights on.
The UI, which defied all the rules of the Apple interface design guidelines, has not changed a bit. File integration is still tied to Dropbox and 16-bit AudioShare! Hardware keyboard support (iPad Magic Keyboard, etc) is non-existent. IAP restoration forces re-download of existing content (which is slow!). Bugs that were present 5 years ago are still there (‘X’ won’t close the channel strip pop-up: you have to click ‘X’ and then drag the panel around every time before it will close—just one among several bugs, but I name this one specifically because I reported it 5 or 6 years ago, with no reply from the devs).
When it came out, this app promised to be a game changer. Usually with premium price apps, the expectation is continuing updates and innovation, but instead this app has felt all but abandoned for years. There is a big gap for pro-level apps in the iPadOS space, and it seems that someone else will have to fill this niche. (Maybe Apple will surprise us with Logic Pro Mobile Edition?)
Frustrated after a day's work lost
For starters, I actually own Auria pro, but since I bought it within the app, iTunes does not recognize that I own it so therefore would not let me write a review about it. That said, I have used Auria for about two or three years now, and for the most part I have liked it. Now, however, I am working on something more serious, and am finding all sorts of glitches, to the point that I have spent the whole day working on a tune that is mostly gone now. Tracks have been replaced with glitchy lines that hold no data. I am using an iPad Pro, so it is not an issue with the hardware. I am really devastated, having put so much money into this app, and now time, to boot. I found the audio files inside the filesystem of the app, and started the laborious process of finding the right file to put inside the tracks. However in doing so I come across another glitch, and that is suddenly straight lines instead of waveforms, in other words no audio, on random tracks. If I am doing something wrong and am to blame, I would love to be alerted to this. What kind of magic could I use to make this app work for me?
Developer Response ,
It seems like you might have the editor gain slider all the way down. This control adjusts the height of the waveforms, and if it's all the way down, the waveforms will appear as a straight line. Also, if you ever experience an issue with a project, Auria automatically stores snapshots, so you can easily restore from a previous version of your project. If you have any additional questions, please post in our active user forum and we'll be glad to help.
