Auria Interfaces & Aftermath

Following the release of Auria yesterday, several people were wondering what sort of Audio Interface would be compatible with iPads and the new Digital Audio Recorder. Redditor kopkaas2000 was the first to point out a great compatibility chart for Auria. This is really illuminating. I had heard a lot of people recommend the Tascam US-800 for lots of cheap I/O on the iPad, but apparently it is keeping all the preamps on at full volume when monitoring! Messy, and continuing the trend of Tascam straight into the ground.

Hot on the release buzz, there have been a couple of great videos and an interview on Synthtopia.

Here is a great behind the scenes look at recording the track used in the demo video from yesterday.

If barn-based recording isn't quite your thing, they have a much deeper (but slower) video from David Kahne.

Auria arrives!

The long anticipated 48-track digital audio recorder, Auria, is here! The feature list on this baby is huge, but here are the highlights:

• 48 tracks of simultaneous playback of stereo or mono files. (24 tracks on iPad 1)
• Up to 24 tracks of simultaneous recording when used with compatible USB audio
• 64 bit double-precision floating point mixing engine
• Third party VST effect plugin support available via in-app purchase (only iOS-version plugins are supported. All plugins must be purchased through the in-app store)
• AAF import and export allows transferring complete sessions between popular DAWs like Logic, Pro Tools, Nuendo, Samplitude and more
• Powerful waveform editor with features like cut/copy/paste, crossfade, duplicate, separate, gain, normalize, dc offset, reverse, and more
• DropBox, SoundCloud and Audio Copy/Paste support

A seriously professional DAW has arrived on iPad, and priced about as much as you'd expect...

Here is the teaser video released back in January!

BitWiz updated with MIDI and more!

Everyone's favorite OOH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT I DON'T EVEN AHHHH FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK generator has been updated with MIDI and dual-X/Y controls. This update also adds background audio support, as well as SoundCloud uploading. I had to manually update this, it didn't show up in iTunes as an update for me, so you may need to revisit the BitWiz iTunes page to get yours updated as well.

Here's a look at the new MIDI Control panel.

Embedded below is one of the latest songs from the developer, Kymatica. Nose and ear bleeding means it's working!

Make your own instruments for BeatMaker 2 and Thumbjam

Reader Marlow77 has put together a set of instructions and custom scripts to build your own instruments for both BeatMaker 2 and Thumbjam. This is awesome! If you've ever wanted to take the sounds you're generating with a computer-based VST and bring them over into your iPad, he has the solution!

BeatMaker 2
ThumbJam

These instructions will only work in Windows, but some time in the near future he plans to mass produce a bunch of new instruments for both that will be available for download on his site.

All of this is freely available, but Marlow77 has a donation button at the bottom of the page. He notes that the proceeds from donations will go directly to developers... because he's going to buy more apps!

Clap Box Demo

There was a surprising amount of interest in Puremagnetik's Clap Box, but no example of what it can actually do! YouTube channel Music & Gear Tutorials took a deep look at the sound design options in this Clap Trap emulator.
