Multi-Channel Instrument Mixdown Issue

When I have a setup where I'm feeding multiple tracks with midi files into a separate instrument track containing a multi-channel instrument like CrudeByte strings or Sampletank (with each of the 'feeder' midi tracks set to its own channel and the multi-channel instrument selected in the output box)...

Re: Sounds in Lyra Distorted

I could be speaking the obvious, but just in case this is one of your first experiences with size-conscious sampled instruments: Instruments can be sampled in different ways: the more notes and velocity layers sampled, the bigger the file. To save space (especially on a mobile device), many instrume...

Re: Anyone using Auria on iPad Pro?

Pencil lovers will apparently need to be cautious before upgrading to 9.3 when it arrives. From what I've read Apple has removed much of the pencil's ability to interact with anything except drawing fields in the beta. I gather there is quite an outcry from Pro testers so hopefully the functionality...

Re: Lyra - EXS with consolidated caf files

I don't have any insights on consolidated caf files, but I wonder if the EXS issues I've been having are related. Like you, I've had good success with most of the MainStage/Logic EXS files coming over just fine into Lyra. (Excepting the ones you mentioned, and a few others that have caused Lyra to c...

Re: iRig Keys Pro + Auria Pro = ##^%*%+????

I use an iRig keys with Auria Pro on my iPad Air 1 (latest version of iOS), and outside of a single time I lost the connection (fixed by unplugging and re-plugging the keyboard and restarting Auria) I've not experienced any of the issues you've described. I'm sure your situation is extremely frustra...

Re: Audio not playing...metronome recording into track...

That is strange behavior indeed. I guess the usual first questions would be: What device are you using? Which version of iOS? Do you have the latest version of Auria? Pro? Do you have plenty of space available? Does the behavior return when you restart the device with nothing else running in the bac...

Re: Getting Started with Auria Pro

I think it's easy to forget how complicated a program like Auria can seem when first starting. Because Auria is the closest the thing to a desktop DAW you can find on the iPad, it attracts a pretty high percentage of users that have paid their dues over many years. But I remember clearly getting my ...

Re: New Auria Tutorial Videos from lynda.com

I apologize for the misinformation! Since he didn't cover any of the cool new features like volume drawing, I must have made assumptions and not payed close enough attention to the things he did show. But as mentioned, even it was for version 2.0, this is great resource: a high quality presentation ...

Re: New Auria Tutorial Videos from lynda.com

Looks to be pre-2.03, though the coverage inside the piano roll editor is pretty brief: only about 3 minutes where the new features would require different coverage. :)

Re: Thanks for the update, but......

Rim, do you still want to see logic EXS24 files that aren't working improperly in Lyra? I purchased Mainstage earlier in the week and have spent the last couple days exporting files using both the EXS24 editor and AutoSampler (for converting Alchemy patches). Though I'm a sampler novice, with tips I...

Re: Synth Master Player IAP crashing in Auria Pro

SynthMaster is no longer crashing on my iPad Air in Auria, which is great! It doesn't, however, respond to midi in the instrument slot (An SM issue that I'm sure Auria has no control over: it doesn't work in any of my other hosts either...) I'm sure the old pros know these tips, but if you're trying...

Re: More newbie basic questions

That is good advice: If something very strange and unnatural seems to be happening in your music app, always restart first to see if it resolves the issue. I've gone through some extended uninstall/reinstall dances that would have been fixed with a simple reboot. (This is especially true with some I...

Re: The "Auria Wishlist Thread"

Auria Pro is fantastic, thanks for providing such an excellent tool! Things I'd love to see: * In addition to 'bounce in place', a second option that bounces the rendered audio to a new track and mutes the original * Duplicate track (please, please) * The ability to reorder effects in the channel st...
