Auria is the first major digital audio workstation designed specifically for the Apple iPad, and in this course, author and professional musician Garrick Chow demonstrates how to use its recording, editing, and mixing tools to create great-sounding music. First, Garrick reviews the hardware you'll need to start capturing audio, from microphones to cables and input devices. He then demonstrates how to record anything from a single audio track to a complete multitrack capture of a live band performance, or import audio from other iPad apps with Audiobus. He also shows you how to edit your tracks by adding splits and trims, apply effects, and use automation to create a final mix. Plus, learn to take snapshots so you can save your mix in different states along the way. Last, Garrick reviews the options for exporting your project from Auria in several formats to share it with the world.
This course will be updated regularly as new features are added to Auria, so check back often. Working with a different app? Check out other installments in this series, including iPad Music Production: GarageBand and iPad Music Production: AmpliTube.
In addition to the four insert plug-ins that are available on each channel, whereas you have seen you can add effects like Reverb and Delay, as well as other plug-ins you can purchase and download. Auria also has auxiliary effect styles that you can use on each track. You probably noticed that each channel has two auxiliary, or aux styles. Using these dials you can add as much of the effects that are assigned to each style to your track as you like, but how do you assign effects to the auxiliary dials? You do so by scrolling all the way over to the Master Channel. The Master Channel is where the audio from all your other channels and subgroups end up, and we'll look at it much more closely in the next movie, but for now, notice the Auxiliary FX button.
Tapping that button opens the Auxiliary FX window and it's here you can assign effects to the two auxiliary dials. This looks very much like the Insert plug-ins area in the Channel Strip. Start by tapping the Menu where it currently says None and select the effect you want. I'll choose ClassicVerb for this one, and as you might expect, that opens the Plug-in settings. I'm just going to leaving them as is for now and close the window. So notice we now have ClassicVerb assigned to AUX1. The In button is lit up, letting me know that it's in use. If I wanted to edit the settings, I can tap E and adjust the settings as necessary, but again, I'll just leave things pretty much the way they are.
And if you want, you can assign effect to this second aux style, I'll just add the Delay for this example, and maybe I'll choose the Basic StereoDelay preset for this one. So now I have effect assigned to both auxiliaries, and I can apply as much or as little of them as I want to each track. For example, I'll scroll over to the Fiddle, and let's solo it. Now I'm going to playing a little bit of the track, and I'll turn the auxiliary dials as I do so; you should be able to hear the Reverb and the Delay effects kicking in.
(music playing) Now the overall amount of the effects that can be applied to the track is controlled by the aux dials on the master track. I'm going to put the Fiddle track again with both effects turned up all the way, then I'll come over to the master track dials, and I'll bring those down, and you should be able to hear the difference.
(music playing) So the master aux styles allow you to control exactly how much effects to send to each track. Essentially, you can put a cap on the amount of the effect that's applied. So no matter where I have these set, I have them set maybe midway, that's going to be the maximum I can apply to any one of the tracks on which I use those auxiliary sends.
Generally, though, you're going to find that these are going to be all the way up, and that is their default position. So the auxiliary dials are just what their name applies. They give you two additional dials for adding effects if you happen to have used up all four available slots in a channel. Now you probably won't run into this limit with Auria built-in plug-ins, since there are really only five of them, but if you go to Plug-in Store and purchase additional effects, there probably be more than a few times, you'll be happy to have those auxiliary effects styles available. The auxiliary dials can also help free up system resources, so for example, if you wanted to apply Convolution Reverb to several tracks, instead of using several instances on each individual track, you can apply that reverb to the auxiliary dial then just dial it in on each track that you wanted on.
So that's working with the auxiliary effects in Auria.
