Auria iPad DAW from Wavemachine Labs

A lot of people are excited about the Auria iPad DAW from Wavemachine Labs and I can see why. This is arguably the most powerful multitrack recording application for the iPad to date. In addition to its long list of features, the Auria iPad app easily exports sessions to Pro Tools. I’ve been looking for a portable recording sketchpad that would let me get some basic ideas down while I was away from my studio and this looks like a good solution. I would still like to see some virtual instruments included besides Drumogog and, with the built-in store, I feel some options may be around the corner.

For more information, please visit the iTunes App Store.
