Upon release, Auria was certainly the most serious, pro-level DAW-style app available for iOS.
With the very recent release Steinberg’s Cubasis, however, that title may be under threat, and it’ll certainly be interesting to see how the two compare in the long run.
Competitors aside though, Auria is a brilliant and well-equipped audio DAW (although right now there’s no MIDI, unfortunately). It comes complete with excellent PSPAudioware channel strip plug-ins (with more VSTs available to purchase in-app), makes great use of the iPad’s touchscreen for editing, and features 24-bit/96kHz recording.
For those who are serious about audio on the iPad, it definitely justifies the price tag.45 Stars
