MultitrackStudio for iPad update – Giel Bremmers iOS recording app gets some tweaks

Download from iTunes App Storemultitrackstudio logoAs I posted back in September last year, MultitrackStudio for iPad by Giel Bremmers was the first iOS DAW/sequencer app to get support for hosting Apple’s new Audio Unit (AU) plugin format for iOS. And, while MultitrackStudio perhaps doesn’t have the profile of the likes of GarageBand, Auria Pro or Cubasis, it is a very solid and well-featured audio+MIDI recoding package and it was great to see Giel being so quick off the mark to support the new plugin format.

Anyway, AU – both in terms of audio effects and virtual instruments – is finally beginning to make some serious progress and, over the last few months, we have seen a steady supply of apps appearing with AU support including the impressive array of apps from Audio Damage. Apple’s AUv.3 specification finally does seem to be getting to a stage where developers have the confidence required to invest the time and resources needed to fully embrace the format….

MultitrackStudio for iPad – a solid iOS recording environment but also available on the desktop.

Geil has been bringing regular performance updates since the AU hosting support was launched and a further update – to v.2.7 – arrived on the App Store over the week-end. This brings a number of refinements to the app with some minor fixes for bugs but also a number of changes and new features.

There are a number of workflow refinements within the MIDI editing feature set in this update.

This update brings some refinements to the UI for a more efficient workflow. For example, a new ‘selector appears when touching an editor with a choice of actions then displayed for the user. Scrolling within the editors is now also made easier. In addition, MIDI and automation editors have been refined. They are wider and the ‘handles’ used to adjust note position/duration are now easier to use. Some tweaks have also been made to the app to optimise the use of the larger 12.9″ iPad pro screen for users with that hardware and, for all users, the AU compatibility has been improved.

We now have a very impressive list of AU plugins available to use within hosts such as MultitrackStudio…..

Picking the right recording software for your own needs is never easy. MultitrackStudio for iPad is currently priced at UK£28.99/US$29.99 and the Pro Extension IAP is set at UK£19.99/US$19.99 and, if you pick your software based upon rapid development and keeping at the cutting edge of what’s possible under iOS, then MultitrackStudio for iPad certainly ticks that particular box. Giel has regularly updated the app and, gradually, the specification has evolved into something quite impressive. If one of the ‘names’ just doesn’t gel with your own workflow or needs, then MultitrackStudio for iPad is most certainly worth a look….  Hit the App Store download button to find out more.
