File exchange:

  • Upload and download files through internal Web access service in local WiFi network.
  • Exchange files between applications through audio clipboard (support iOS General pasteboard operations).
  • Support "Open in" feature to move audio files from other applications.
  • Option "Open file in" sends file directly to another application.
  • Get and send files to Dropbox web service.
  • Access files through iTunes file share.

Inter-App audio support:

Support Inter-App audio feature as node. Can be used as effects with other Inter-App audio host applications.

Audiobus support:

Can use with Audiobus in Effects or Output position. In both modes can record processed output. Buttons Play and Record available on Audiobus connection panel.


iPad 2 and higher is strongly recommended (especially with Audiobus). Generally this application can be run on first generation iPad but there is a possibility of audio dropouts. Offline processing can be done with any iPad.
