Review based on use with iPad 1, and iPod Touch 3GS.
I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this yet? I use this as much as anything, if not more.
Harmonicdogs, MultiTrack DAW is a serious work horse for the iOS musician.
Starting at $9.99 the basic version comes with 8 stereo tracks, there is also an option to upgrade to a total of 24, (via in app purchase of $14.99) there is a lot of room to record and mix complex songs. MT DAW has one of the most clean interfaces I’ve seen on iOS. It’s simple, and intuitive user interface utilizes the best aspects of the multi touch functions to get the job done. No hassle, no fuss, no flash or unnecessary complications. Just a high quality professional, portable audio recording work space.
Buy MultiTrack DAW at iTunes:
All tracks are stereo 16bit 44.1 kHz CD quality. No clipping, no instability even when using all 24 tracks. Waveforms are nicely displayed in each track and easily edited, or named with a simple touch and drag of the finger. Edits are non destructive so whatever you do in the track to change, split, or fade the waveform, the original file saved safely in the song or shared “Bin” remains unchanged.
Every track has its own fader, pan, mute, and solo. In addition to those functions for each track there is also a per track EQ, and Compressor (3GS, 3rd gen and higher)
30 levels of undo, 40-240 BPM adjustable metronome, various time signatures, looping with markers, move or copy paste multiple regions and bounce down. Open the bin browser to select and preview raw audio files before placing in a track. These really are just a few of MT DAWs features.
Recently MultiTrack was updated to include two new adjustable FX! We now have Stereo Delay, and Reverb available via the FX Bus. You can have one FX tab moved in front of the other if you wish to change the order.
Reverb is technically “Freeverb” but works very nicely all things considered. Reverb is not only one of the most used and desirable FX, but also the most demanding on CPUs. Stereo delay is pretty demanding as well, and these demands are why there is only one global FX bus. However the amount of the selected FX can be adjusted at each individual track level from 0-100. The quality of the FX are both quite nice, and it was well worth the wait.
With copy paste between compatible apps, there is also iTunes file sharing, additionally there is email attachments and direct upload to Sound Cloud support.
