Meteor Multitrack Recorder adds EQ on each track

Reader ChrisG let me know that Meteor got a nice little update today! The update adds a 3 Band Parametric EQ to each track.

This might seem like a simple addition, but being able to selectably EQ out the lows/mids/highs on a track will really clean up your mix.

What's new:

• Added 3 Band Parametric EQ to each mixer track.
• Added Instrument Browser
• Fixed an Issue with Multitasking Audio
• Various Optimisations

Buy Meteor Multitrack Recorder on iTunes: $19.99


I feel I'd be remiss if I didn't point out this has a shit load of IAPs for plugins. Some of which are quite high at $12 and $15! This isn't exactly a "Poor man's Auria" so don't go clicking on that link too quickly, thinking you'll get it all for $20.

I feel like an idiot, but the only way I could ever figure out where anything was in Meteor was by reading the manual -- which hasn't been updated in a while. Does anyone know where this new EQ is located? I only poked around at it for a couple of minutes this morning, but I wasn't able to find it.

And Meteor kind of is a poor-man's Auria -- the IAPs generally range from $2-5 for the effects (compared to $10 to $30 in Auria, though there's no comparison in terms of quality) and Auria doesn't have MIDI sequencing or virtual instruments which is what the more expensive IAPs in Meteor give you ($15 gets you both MIDI sequencing and some really decent sounding synth and sampler instruments).

It's just not a broke-man's Auria.

You have to have the mixer in portrait.... Then you can press an orange Eq button on each track :)

Meteor also crashes less often than Auria in my experience (on an iPad 2)

The EQ button s located in the mixer where the mute and solo buttons are.

About the IAPs...If you skip the midi editor and instruments ($15) you gonna need to buy at least the compressor/limiter ($3). And if you want an EQ on the master out you're gonna need to buy that 10 band eq ($3) or the parametric one ($5). If you do buy the midi and the instrument pack you're probably gonna want/need to buy some of the other fx like dist, phaser etc to spice it up.

I dunno...Auria is $50 but you do not need to buy any IAP plugs. It's a complete package with PSPs awesome eqs, compressors, expander, limiters, brickwall limiter plus as inserts you get a classic reverb, convolution reverb, chorus/flanger, delay and a voice pitch correction plug. I bought the whole Meteor package before Auria came out to use as a central hub to bring all the stuff together via audio copy paste. But I kinda jumped ship to Auria, not that meteor is bad or anything Auria just suits me better. Plus I did buy that awesome ProQ EQ. That plug is $30 but it sounds amazing, plus I like to spend cash I don't have...

I agree with everything you just said ChrisG, about Meteor Vs. Auria. I can see myself still using Meteor for arranging, though, as the Audio Pool and Waveform Editing tools in Meteor makes it easier to work with AudioCopy/Paste bits than it is in Auria (at least at this point) -- and then export the 12 audio tracks to dropbox for bringing into Auria for mixing and mastering.

And thanks for letting me know where the EQ button is :-D

ChrisG, Auria is 50 but you have to pay for the plugs, about 100 and even more if you want all of them !

Pierre:

The plugs I mentioned comes with the basic package. You get PSPs expander/gate, EQ, Compressor, Limiter on all 48 mixer tracks. On the Master out you get PSPs Busspressor, EQ, Limiter and a brick wall limiter. And some other stuff like saturation etc. On top of that you get reverb, convolution reverb with a bunch of IRs, chorus/flanger, delay and pitch correction to use as inserts or aux. So it's definatly a complete mixer and mastering suite included in thse $50.

Yea the extra plugs are not cheap by AppStore standards. But the same ProQ EQ for windows/Mac is $200. So depends on how you look at it I guess. Things will probably not get cheaper when they add midi and bring onboard other VSTi instrument developers. I really hope Apples next iPad get some massive horsepower on the CPU side next time and not only focus on the GPU side of things.
