Summer is here (well, it is if you happen to live in the Northern hemisphere) and, alongside the better weather comes a slow-down in pretty much everything as folks take whatever well-deserved break they can manage. This is most certainly true of the music tech industry….  July and August tend to be periods of little or no news of real note. And it is also true of the Music App Blog as I’m hoping to get a few days down time with my family over the next week or so.

However, I don’t want regular readers to have to go completely cold turkey so, thanks to the generosity of a number of our favourite iOS music app developers (before they slipped away to their personal tropical islands by private jet for their own period of R’n’R), over the next week I’ve got a number of app giveaways lined up….  If you fancy the chance of picking up a freebie, then keep your eyes peeled….

So what’s first of the mark? Well, within the iOS music-making community, there are some developers that qualify for almost universal hero worship; Jonatan Liljedahl is one of those. Whether it is the ubiquitous utility app AudioShare, the truly inspiring (and sometimes mind bending) electronic rhythm/groove app Sector, or the minimalist audio effects of the AUFX series, Jonatan creates brilliant apps that almost any iOS musician would want to own. And, with his most recent iOS music app – AUM – he has done it again; AUM is quite a piece of work….

AUM - a potential game changer for the iOS musician?

AUM – a potential game changer for the iOS musician?

At it’s most basic, AUM can best be described as an audio mixer for your iOS music apps but, as it is capable of acting as an AU host, routing audio to and fro between Audiobus and IAA apps, includes it’s own internal effects options, offers as many audio channels and sub-mix (bus) channels as your iOS hardware can manage, includes MIDI routing support for synths, other virtual instruments or MIDI control, Ableton Link, latency compensation and the option to record any or all audio channels (or busses) directly to AudioShare (for exporting elsewhere) and… well, it doesn’t take a genius iOS musician to realise this might be quite a useful app to have around.

There is genius involved in the design and implementation though…. If you are the kind of iOS musician who tends to work with more than a few apps at a time – and you have hardware that lets you do that – then AUM is going to be very appealing.

AUM provides all sorts of very flexible audio routing options between your various app.

Anyway, Jonatan has kindly provided me with three copies of AUM to giveaway here at the Music App Blog.  As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out. You can enter the draw in one of two ways.

  • First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Thursday, July 28th, 2016. Make sure to enter ‘AUM’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future app giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the details required to download your free copy. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to download ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

AUM is a universal app and is priced at UK£13.99/US$18.99. At just an 6MB download, it is also an app that is easy enough to provide a home for. This is most certainly a ‘utility’ type app in that it doesn’t actually create any noise of its own. However, it does provide a way of routing, mixing and processing your various audio signals from any multi-app setup you happen to be using. Jonatan Liljedahl…. I take my hat off to you…. AUM is a brilliant idea that has been brilliantly executed. Top-notch technical stuff and highly recommended so, get your name in the hat for a chance to pick up a free copy….   but worth every penny/cent if you don’t win and have to resort to hitting the download button below :-) You can read the full AUM review here….
