Stagelight by Open Labs LLC

Open Labs LLC released Stagelight on iOS! This is a cross-platform DAW; packed full of instruments, and a 1GB sample library. The iOS version arrives with AUv3 support! I can't find any demos of the iOS version yet, but it is quite reasonably priced. $15 unlocks everything on iOS, but if you are a cross-platform producer you can unlock it across all devices for $150.

Their iTunes description is very detailed, so I have had to dramatically abridge it here.

Stagelight iTunes Description:

Stagelight is the easiest way to create music on iOS! With Stagelight, you can make beats, mix loops or even create full multi-track songs with drum, instrument, audio and vocal tracks.

Had this for desktop years ago but never really gave it a shot.

I think it's nice that after spending $15 to unlock it, you get that back in credit for their content store.

Finally a DAW where I don't have to predefine the loop length. Seems to determine it dynamically like Ableton Live.

Looks very promising, but unfortunately i can't configure the audio output settings to use other options than the internal speaker of my ipad mini 2 (IOS 12.1):-( Maybe Bluetooth audio is too new to them??

Ah, and i'm also having trouble to get it working on a MacMini with HighSierra and USB audio devices - no audio output, nothing. Only a Presonus FireStudio can output audio via FireWire:-(( No Sir, no deal here...

The record to tracks feature from the loop launcher has me interested in getting the unlock. Seems very useful for fast work flow. But I don’t need another DAW though sure enough. I wish BM3 Would have this feature, or maybe I’m just missing how to do it there.

SFZ support is a very welcome feature in the app. Look forward to them adding background audio, AU MIDI output, MIDI CC automation recording, IAA support, and Link. The developers seem to be very responsive about getting a sense of user priorities as they go about updating and adding features.

The Mac version of Stagelight should work with any USB audio interface that shows up in core audio. Please send us a message @ mobile@openlabs.com and we will be happy to look in to this with you.

Bluetooth Audio is not availalbe at this time, but we are looking in to adding this in the future. You should be able to use USB audio deives.
