Skill Level Beginner
The first step to recording in Auria is to create a new project, so let's quickly run through that process here. Start by tapping Menu and then selecting New Project. Start by giving your project a name. I'll just call this Test Project for now, you can always go back and change this name later at anytime. Next, determine the Sample Rate you want to use. Now this is a setting that can't be changed later, so make sure you choose a Rate in line with the project you are working in. In most cases 44.1 is fine for Music, 48 is usually used for audio that's incorporated with video, or you might choose 96 if you want the highest possible quality, although 96 isn't available on the first generation iPad.
Just bear in mind that the higher the Sample Rate, the more storage space you'll project will take up on your iPad. And lastly, choose how many Tracks you want to start out with. On the iPad 2 and later you can have up to 48 Tracks. On the first-generation iPad, you're limited to 24. In any case you can also add additional tracks later, so you're not locked into your selection here. I'll just keep the default 24 tracks selected, and I'll tap Save. And there is our project which opens up in the mix window, you can see my 24 tracks. And that's how to create a new project in Auria.
