Importing from ITunes

Post by Paddy Flynne » Sat Dec 07, 2013 6:53 am

I hope I'm not duplicating this question, I can't find a solution under search or YouTube tutorials, so here goes.
I have my Celtic band and I want to use my IPad Auria app to import tracks from ITunes and slow them down to learn new tunes on the flute.
I've created a new file with a tune name, but It's not obvious how I import the track from ITunes.
Can anybody help please?

iFunBox is easier to use for transferring files back and forth between your computer and the iPad, and it's free. The idea is to copy the file into Auria's Documents folder. Once you do that, just launch Auria, open the import Audio File screen and choose the new files you copied.

Note: the files need to be WAV, AIF, M4A or MP3 in order for Auria to recognize them.

Thank's I'll try it. Is there no way by just using the IPad. When I'm traveling and playing at gigs, the IPad Is easier to carry?

DropBox is another way to get files into Auria without using a computer.

Hello Audioshare($3.99US) is very useful for this and moving all sorts of stuff
all over the place. You can access your ipad iTunes files download them then
there is an "open in" button below the wave display which includes Auria. Select
that it courtesy opens Auria go to "import Audio" and there it is. I just read
some people have better luck exporting from Auria to Dropbox through audioshare
as well. You can also convert files it's very handy. Hope this helps - the time stretch
feature in Auria is indeed awesome and if you're willing to wait the higher quality
audio choice is remarkable.

If your specific use-case is to slow tunes down to learn how to play them, I would recommend Anytune Pro:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/anytune ... 93637?mt=8

You can do this in Auria, but it would be quite fiddly. Anytune will do it much better, because you can slow down the music interactively, set loop points, import from your music library etc, the app specifically designed for that purpose.

Auria should have no issues downloading an MP3 file from dropbox. What issue are you having with MP3s exactly?

Mp3's dont show up in dropbox when trying to upload from Auria. They upload fine from the ITunes app, but thats an extra step I dont want to take

Are you talking about uploading or downloading? (I'm a little confused by what you wrote). Are you trying to download an MP3 into Auria, or are you trying to upload an MP3 out of Auria?

I am trying to import an MP3 to a track on Auria via Dropbox. I can do it manually if I put the MP3 into Auria's folders with a computer, but those exact same files in Dropbox will not show up on the app. I can try to make a short video later as well.

OK, thanks for clarifying. I just tried adding an MP3 file to my Dropbox and it showed up and downloaded fine on my end. Are you sure the MP3 file you're using has an extension? Auria will only read files with extensions. In other words, it must say .mp3 at the end.
