Meteor update – 4Pockets tweak their iOS audio+MIDI recording app

It's another week when we are seeing a number of iOS DAW/sequencers getting some TLC.

Of course, while apps such as Auria Pro, Cubasis, Garageband and Gadget perhaps get the headlines when it comes to recording under iOS, there are a number of other contenders that are well worth considering. … [Read more...]

Multitrack DAW update – new features for compact iOS DAW from Harmonicdog

Multitrack DAW by Harmonicdog is a popular recording choice with lots of iOS musicians. While it is an audio-only recording environment, it does offer two advantages that appeal to users. First, Multitrack DAW is simple to use (the feature set is streamlined so you can focus on the recording process itself and not get distracted). Second, it’s a universal app that, because of its streamlined feature set (and unlike Cubasis and Auria, which are only available for iPad), actually runs rather … [Read more...]

Meteor update – 4Pockets tweak their iOS audio+MIDI recording app

It must be 'DAW/sequencer week' this week on the Music App Blog.

While apps such as Auria Pro, Cubasis and Garageband (and, yes, soon Gadget) perhaps get the headlines when it comes to recording under iOS, there are a number of other contenders that … [Read more...]

Meteor update – 4Pockets bring welcome update to their iOS audio+MIDI recording app

While apps such as Auria, Cubasis and Garageband perhaps get the headlines when it comes to recording under iOS, there are a number of other contenders that are well worth considering. If you want both audio and MIDI recording within a single app, one of the other obvious choices is Meteor Multitrack Recorder by developer 4Pockets.

Multitrack DAW update – host of new features for compact iOS DAW from Harmonicdog

If you have hung around these pages before you will probably be aware that my iOS weapon of choice for recording purposes is generally Steinberg’s Cubasis. This is, of course, a personal choice; Cubasis just happens to fit my particular needs. There are, however, plenty of other excellent iOS music production apps out there.
