Love this!...but

This is a wonderful drone app. I agree with many of the previous reviews, the two big features missing from this app are IAA/Audiobus and background play.
Those two features would definitely bring this app to another level.

Cool app but still no IAA and Audiobus support

Thank you to the developer for the update to 64-bit. The fact that this app hasn't had an update in 5 years had me thinking that this was most definitely abandonware. I was pleasantly surprised to see this in my app updates today. 😁

Anyway, this is such a cool app for soundscaping. Unfortunately, it needs IAA and AB compatibilty to really be of use. I'd love to be able to record the output of Drone FX into Auria (or even AudioShare). Would also love to see solo and mute buttons added to each channel - it's very awkward fine-tuning each sound's parameters in the UI's current state.

Dear developer - please take the above into consideration. This app has tons of potential and I hope both developer and users support it further. 👍

Still my original and favorite drone music app❣️

Would really, REALLY, like it to play in the background and be an AUv3 compatible.
Yeah it doesn’t play in the background, bla bla bla, and it’s pretty much a ‘stand alone’ app but it still creates wonderful drones and I was ticked that this develop was able to figure out how to add that❣️ It still resides on my iPad’s Home screen...🤓👍
