Audio Evolution Mobile Studio update – further updates to well-featured iOS DAW/sequencer

Download from iTunes App StoreIf you look at the desktop marketplace, the world is not short of DAW/sequencer options. And, if the likes of, for example, CubasisGarageBand, Auria Pro or Gadget, don’t float your particular boat, as I posted a few months ago, there are further options for you to consider including Audio Evolution Mobile Studio.

As I discussed in the full review, I was impressed with the basic concept, the conventional design approach (which makes for a modest learning curve) and the sensible core feature selection. The ‘free + IAP’ pricing model is also one that will undoubtedly attract some iOS musicians as it does allow an element of try before you buy.

Audio Evolution Mobile Studio – a very creditable DAW/sequencer option for your iPad and free to try.

Developer Davy Wentzler has been very active since the initial release and the app’s performance with both AU and IAA apps has been considerably fine-tuned. This now seems like a pretty solid host for your 3rd party apps and the feature set – as covered in my original review – is impressive.

The app includes a well-featured mixing environment.

Anyway, a further update appeared today taking the app to v.1.1.9 and this brings a long list of refinements and minor additions. For example, there are new soundfonts available within the SoundFont shop including some vintage synth and orchestral sounds. There are also some new bundles in the SoundFont shop for extra savings. In the timeline, re-drawing speed has been improved and the file browser feature has been re-worked for easier use. A new Stereo Widener effect (free) has been added as has a tape simulator plugin (as an IAP). A bunch of very minor fixes have also been applied bringing some CPU efficiency gains, refinements to MIDI behaviour and in terms of transport sync via IAA. Having given the update a very quick spin this morning on my iOS11 equipped iPad Pro all seemed to be working well :-)

A new Stereo Widener effect has been added to the app with this update.

I really should update my ‘iOS DAW/sequencer roundup‘ article to include the likes of AEMS and gadget 3. Anyway, as an alternative to the obvious DAW/sequencer competition, AEMS is certainly worth exploring.

    1. This is arguably best pretender to Cubasis. Lots to like. Much potential. But needs to add Dropbox, without further delay.
