Looking for advice on effects for Auria

Post by Trash » Wed Sep 13, 2017 3:00 am

Hi everyone -

I’m looking for some advice on effects that integrate with Auria Pro.

Basically I record guitar direct and have previously used effects pedals to get the sounds I need. Now that I am switching from a Hard-disk based Portastudio to Auria on an iPad I would like to be able to ditch the effects pedals for something that is integrated into Auria Pro itself.

The FX I am looking for would be guitar Overdrive, Distortion, Phaser type things (anything to give the Di’ed guitar a bit more warmth and bite).
Oh and I would rather not spend tons of cash that I don’t have :-)

I’m still finding my way around Auria so any advice would be appreciated.

Many many thanks in advance...

Within Auria itself there is the Overloud THM plugin, which is a fairly comprehensive guitar effects and amp sim suite.

There are also some IAA apps that you can buy on the App Store and record from Auria: Tonestack, Flying Haggis, BIAS FX, and Amplitube. All are pretty good, and these will be more versatile than Overloud because you can use them with other apps on your iPad, since they are not tied to Auria.

The main advantage of the Overloud plugin is that you can run multiple instances within Auria, which you can't do with IAA apps, they need to be recorded and bounced if you need to run several instances of them. However the IAA apps have more up-to-date audio engines (although Overloud is actually pretty good, but it hasn't been updated for years). BIAS FX, Tonestack, and Flying Haggis are my personal favourites, for playing clean guitar. For high-gain sounds BIAS FX seems to be the best-sounding by general consensus.

Hi -

Many thanks for the response.
How do I access the Overload plugin as I have never seen any guitar fx other than (from memory) some acoustic guitar FX.
Please excuse the newbie question(s)

And thanks again

You have to buy the Overloud plugin from the Auria Store. You can find the store at the bottom of the main menu.

Ah okay - when you said within Auria itself I presumed you meant included by default.

I will check out the store as you suggest.

Thanks again.

Cheers

Just get BiasFX and Tonestack. They are incredible. Be ready to stay up all night messing around with all the presets.
