Wavemachine Labs have announced the release of Auria Pro in Spring 2015. This will be a separate app, but existing owners will be able to upgrade to the new MIDIlicious version! You even get to keep your IAPs.
Auria Pro Announcement:
With over two years in the making, we're really excited to finally give you a preview of the upcoming Auria Pro. Full MIDI capabilities, real-time audio warping, powerful audio bussing, two built-in synths and much more, Auria Pro raises the bar in mobile recording once again. Auria Pro will be on display at our booth at NAMM (Booth#6903).
- Comprehensive MIDI capabilities including:
• MIDI sequencing
• Tempo and Time-signature tracks
• Piano roll editor
- Real-time MIDI parameters including quantize, velocity shift, velocity compression, length compression, random, delay, legato and transpose
- Groove template quantizing with built-in DNA grooves (additional grooves available for purchase)
- MIDI processing functions including Transpose, Fixed Length, Velocity Gain, Fixed Velocity, Delete Notes, Delete Controller, Restrict Polyphony, Optimize Controller Data, Humanize, Delete Overlaps, Crescendo, Reverse, Pedal to Length, Velocity Rescale, Velocity Range, Velocity Curve and Compress/Limit

- Audio quantize feature
- Transient slicing
- Audio to MIDI conversion
- Unlimited tracks

Auria Pro will be available Spring 2015 and will be priced at $49.99. Existing Auria users will also be able to upgrade to Auria Pro for a reduced price. Pricing for the standard Auria version will be $24.99. If you're an existing Auria user, all your purchased plugins will continue to work in Auria Pro.
The MIDI upgrade to Auria was planned as an IAP, way back in November 2013, so being charged extra for that should not be worrisome to anyone. I'm also glad to see they're keeping Auria at the $25 price tag so that people don't feel burned in Spring by them dropping the price... and immediately charging more for the new version!
