I submitted a new version yesterday, and it was approved already today (that was fast!):

- Fixed issue with iPad Air 2 models and high CPU usage during scrolling
- Made recording post-processing phase more robust to protect against loss of audio in very long recordings
- Improved memory usage when using channel strips
- Made saving more robust to protect against corrupt projects

Not sure, they didn't say. FabFilter has been busy with some other things lately, but I'll ask again.

That's unrelated to the bug fixed in this version. The bug we're talking about is something which only appears on an iPad Air 2, and is an Apple issue. I added a workaround to get around this bug. It's related to graphics scrolling only.

It's not uncommon to get CPU warnings for other various reasons. Some things to check:

- Auria likes to run with a large buffer size (4096). This allows you to achieve low CPU usage while playing back your tracks through plugins. However, two things can cause the buffer size to get set to a low setting: Running Auria in Audiobus mode (this is a setting in Auria's settings page). If this mode is on, Auria uses a smaller buffer size during playback, which makes it possible to use Auria in conjunction with other apps (either Audiobus or IAA). The trouble with using Audiobus mode is the CPU usage goes up as well. So if you're not using Auria with other apps, leave this off. Another source of low buffer sizes is having another audio app running at the same time as Auria. Most other audio apps run with very low buffer sizes. The way iOS works, the first app to run gets to determine the buffer size for everyone else. So if you launch Auria after another audio app is already running, it's possible Auria will be using that low buffer size and the CPU usage will go up.

- The buffer size also goes up when you record enable a track. Record enabling a track causes Auria to switch to a lower buffer size (whatever you have set in the settings page for Record Latency).

- Sometimes the iPad just needs to be rebooted. We've noticed iOS8 uses a lot of RAM for some random reason, and rebooting it helps reclaim the RAM. Maybe the same is true for CPU usage. It's too early to tell.

Good news, the CPU bug has gone with the air 2. The only caveat is the mixer window scrolling is now not as smooth. It's kind of 'raggedey' and not as professional as before. Still better that the CPU bug.

Thinking out loud,could this issue with the mixer screen creating CPU spikes be connected to the issue with being unable to group faders (same bug affecting both)? They are both relate to the mixer screen and both involve touching the screen. And both have gone funny on the latest iOS and auria update.

The bug is an iOS bug that only appears to affect iPad Air 2. It happens on any app that uses a scrollview control (the type of control used in both the mixer and the editor). I discovered a workaround that involves putting a small delay into the scrolling, and this eliminates the problem completely. However, as you noticed, the scrolling is not quite as smooth. I figure that's better than having CPU spikes in the audio thread! My workaround code is only active on Air 2 models, and I'll remove it once Apple fixes the issue.

Indeed.

New issue with final touch app. It's only operating on the left channel only and the iPad mic is permanently on when used as an IAA on a channel. Yesterday, it all worked fine with the old build.

P.s. It didn't affect the edit window. I couldn't get the cpu message to trigger in this panel

wait,I AM already using 1.154 :(

Well,yeah see above.Mixerpage stutters...no matter which project.Even in a new project with just some empty tracks added and no fx.

I alreeady had a restart and a soft reset etc (i also had the problem first with 1GB ram not showing up in Auria and the soft reset did the trick)

Can you define "stuttering"? Do you mean the audio is dropping out?

mtingle: As far as IAAs, nothing has changed in this version related to IAAs. Maybe there's something else going on, like an iOS update. What else have you changed since this Auria update? Also, I found that any page using a scrollview could cause this problem. In Auria that means the mixer, the editor and a few other screens like the store screen). So I fixed all of them.
