Made in the U.S.A.! StudioTrack also works with compatible third-party audio interfaces.

  • Multitrack
    Multitrack Recording

    Record up to eight tracks on a lucious multitouch mixer with meters, faders and knobs. Control multiple parameters simultaneously, like an analog console. Rearrangable channels help you keep your tracks organized.

  • Metronome

    Choose from beats by celebrity drummer Jason McGerr or samples of live drums and percussion courtesy of Discrete Drums multitrack drum library. Time signatures include 3/4, 4/4, 6/8 and X/4 (unaccented beats that can be used to play 5 ,7, 9 and other odd meters).

  • Bounce and Mix
    Bounce and Mix

    Bounce your tracks to a new song and keep expanding your work beyond eight tracks while maintaining all the original recordings. Then Mix down right on the device and use DropBox to upload the mix and the original tracks to the cloud.

  • Track Effects
    Effects on every Track

    StudioTrack has an effect rack on every channel which can be configured with a set of effects. Options include a tempo-synchronized double delay, a 4 band parametric EQ with Hi-Shelf, Hi-Peak, Lo-Peak and Lo-Shelf filters, a 1 band peaking parametric EQ and a compressor. The delay and 4 band EQ require more processing power, so they require both slots, while the 1 band EQ and compressor can be used together in any order.

  • Master Effects
    Master Effects

    StudioTrack includes a built-in Reverb with send knobs on every channel and a Reverb Return level on the master section. It also includes a 4 band parametric EQ and a stereo-linked master compressor to help you create the perfect mix for your style.

"We were frankly impressed with how good looking, responsive, and intuitive the app is (StudioTrack) -- GarageBand could really learn a thing or two -- and we multitracked our first session in minutes."
