So it’s been a few days since my last post in my series of my 24 apps for Christmas. So number 6 is Aurora from 4Pockets. Aurora has been around for a long time now, and I’m not just talking about on iOS either. Originally Aurora was a Windows Mobile app, and that’s where I started using it.
I’m a fan of apps where you can do everything in one go. Single studio apps let’s call them. Aurora has a great and very intuitive interface. If you’ve ever used a grid based sequencer then it’ll make sense. Files can be moved between the iPhone and iPad versions of the app very simply too, although I’m not sure if you can move files between iOS and Windows Mobile. Maybe I’ll have to try that out soon.
What I really like about Aurora is how you can use it to build sounds and tracks very easily. It, and by that I mean both iOS versions, hasn’t had a serious overhaul in quite some time. I’d like to think that 4Pockets will update both versions at some point in the not too distant future. If they did decide to update it, then I’d love it if they could include a mutli channel export, or indeed multi channel feed into audiobus.
