MultiTrack Daw For iPad

The power of a digital audio workstation in the palm of your hand.

Release your creativity with up to 24 high quality audio tracks. Record multiple takes, harmonies, solos, and experiments. No more worrying about bouncing tracks – each instrument can have its own. More cowbell? No problem!

Build new songs just like in a real recording studio, with the monitoring and overdubbing capabilities of MultiTrack DAW. Move and trim audio until it’s perfect, and mix the sound until it’s just right. Share your creations with Wi-Fi, iTunes file sharing, email, and SoundCloud.

MultiTrack supports pasting from other apps, and copying to other apps, as well as uploading and downloading audio files using Wi-Fi. Or use iTunes File Sharing to transfer audio files or final mixes.

INPUT OPTIONS

MultiTrack has a wide range of input capabilities, including the built-in mic, headset mics, doc connector mics, and on the iPad even USB mics and USB audio interfaces. Please see our support forum for a list of supported input devices.

AUDIO FILES

File types for import include mp3, wav, aac, m4a, aif, and m4a. MultiTrack now offers five ways to get audio files in: Wi-Fi, Copy/Paste, Email, iTunes File Sharing, and iPod Library Access. And five ways to get audio files out: Wi-Fi, Copy/Paste, Email, iTunes File Sharing, and SoundCloud.

3.1.6 Updates:

24 bit recording capable! And 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96 kHz supported! New projects can now be created with 16 bit or 24 bit, and one of these sample rates. Use the Options menu from the song list screen to choose the format for a new song project. 24 bit projects will use 64 bits for internal signal processing. All imported/recorded audio will be converted to match the song project format, if needed. (**)

New “Open In…” button for Regions, Bins, and Mixdowns. This gives you another way to get audio out of MultiTrack and into another app, like DropBox or other sharing apps.

Improved background support, double tap the Home button for audio controls that can now be used to control MultiTrack.

Internal Dithering for all volume controls. Even when a project is set for 16 bit, 24 bit is requested from the audio hardware and then dithered, resulting in a cleaner signal than the default 16 bit non-dithered signal. (**)

Bit transparency. When volume faders are set to 0dB and FX off, there will be no signal processing, resulting in 100% clean signal transparency throughout the system from input to output (no losses or added distortion).

Song project folders are now unhidden in the Documents folder of iTunes File Sharing, for easy backup of songs. To Backup a song, drag the song out of the Documents folder. To restore a backed up project, zip it and and drag it back to the Documents folder.

Full support for zipping and unzipping a song project from within MultiTrack (Touch-hold a song icon to zip the song, tap a zipped song to unzip).
