Wavemachine Labs kündigen das bisher unmöglich gedachte an: eine 48-Spur DAW mit gleichzeitiger 24 Spur Aufnahme und VST Unterstützung für das iPad. 24/44.1 Support und 64Bit Architektur gibts gleich dazu, sowie Delay Compensation, Panning Law, AAF Import, VU oder RMS Meter uvm.

With the ability to play 48 mono or stereo 24bit/44.1 kHz tracks simultaneously, record up to 24 of those tracks simultaneously (through any supported USB multichannel audio interface), and edit and mix with familiar tools and full parameter automation, it’s clear Auria sets a new standard for iPad multitracking.

What’s more, Auria’s 64-bit Double Precision architecture ensures ample headroom for plug-in processing and mix summing, transforming your iPad into a recording and mixing system with sound quality that rivals most DAWs.

The depth is in the details. Like customizable pan laws. Like meters that are selectable between VU and RMS. Like full delay compensation for all tracks, including aux sends and subgroups. Complete with a vintage-inspired channel strip on every channel, a dedicated master channel strip, VST plug-ins engineered by renowned makers such as PSPaudioware, Overloud, Fab Filter and Drumagog, and support for Dropbox, Soundcloud, AAF, and MP3, Auria truly raises the bar for recording and mixing on the iPad.

Preis und Veröffentlichungsdatum sind noch unbekannt, aber hier noch ein Paar Bilder von diesem unglaublichen Stück Software.

Update: Chris Randall von Audio Damage nennt das Ganze “Bullshit”, besonders wegen der VST-Integration:

1. VST Support means what it says: the app hosts VST plug-ins built to the VST standard. However, there is no such thing as a VST SDK for iOS. This being the case, it is a physical impossibility for Auria to host VSTs; what it hosts are VSTs that have been ported to Auria. WaveMachine say they are “leading the charge” to bring the VST format to iOS. I personally like to think that, due to the nature of my business endeavors, I’d be aware of any such “charge.” However, this is the first I’ve heard of it. Be that as it may, the sandbox design of iOS precludes any of this sort of thing at a basic level, at least in the manner we know it.
