Before you get your hopes up TOO high, it might be a good idea to read this old post from Audio Damage's Chris Randall about why the iPad's hardware limitations may not let this app live up to the hype: http://www.analogindustries.com/blog/entry.php?blogid=132683 3189677
Wow! Sobering commentary. It will be interesting to see what happens.
It's not that sobering. We already knew all of that already (that VST's would need to be ported, and reside as in-app purchases). That's the limitation of the iPad. it is what it is.
The sobering part was that someone actually came out and said that what Auria is promising can't be done, and then gave facts to back things up. That's why I'm saying it will be very interesting to see how Auria plans to back up its claims.
I can imagine getting by with 48 tracks by somehow rendering and playing only a stereo sub-mix of everything that is stored in the 48 tracks (entirely possible). But I don't see how they will be able to back up their claim of the capability of recording such a high simultaneous track count. I wonder to myself if they are building this system with future hardware in mind. It is entirely possible that next year a new iPad could come out with a quad-core or better processor (or in two years a processer that doubles even that processing power)... Follow what I'm saying? They could basically be saying that the system is ready for 48 track recording, and is only waiting for the hardware to catch up...
Ah, yeah that's true. I was thinking strictly from the VST standpoint. But you're right; 48 tracks on an iPad? Tall order, not to mention the lack of hardware supporting the 24 simultaneous track thing. All good points.
