WaveMachine Labs, creator of the Auria DAW app for the iPad, is announcing the launch of "The Really Big 'WHAT THE #%&@ ARE YOU DOING WITH AURIA' Video Contest" in conjunction with co-sponsors AKG, Apogee, and JBL Professional. Offering first, second, and third prizes with a total value of $11,000, the contest invites users to submit a video up to 4 minutes in length showing how they use Auria and how it is changing the way they work. The first place winner will receive a pair of JBL LSR6328Ps, an Apogee Quartet for iOS, an AKG C414 XLS, an AKG C1000S, and AKG K712 headphones, with a total value of over $7,000. The contest kicks off on October 23, 2013 and all submissions must be received by November 22, 2013. Entries will focus on how the contestant is using Auria, whether as an artist, producer, or engineer. Beyond providing a fun and rewarding opportunity for Auria users, the company will use the videos to gain insights into how people are working with Auria in the real world. Entries can be shot with smartphones or other simple cameras and edited with consumer editing apps - Hollywood quality video is not required! Judges will include Grammy Award winning composer/producer/engineer David Kahne and legendary producer/engineer Bob Bullock. Submissions that have the most interesting and engaging content, in the opinion of the judges, will be moved into the final round, where the winners will be chosen by registered visitors to the video contest website.
Auria is a 48-track DAW designed exclusively for the iPad. Built from the ground up to be used in both studio and live tracking applications, Auria includes the necessary tools for recording, mixing, and editing any audio project. And when used in conjunction with a compatible USB audio interface, such as Apogee's innovative line of iOS products, Auria can record up to 24 tracks simultaneously. Auria features up to 96KHz recording, AAF import/export for moving sessions between popular DAWs, 64-bit double precision architecture, full MIDI sync, and Inter-App Audio support. Also, WaveMachine Labs has teamed with PSPaudioware to offer a powerful vintage-inspired channel strip on every channel. Auria includes several bundled plugins (convolution reverb, stereo chorus, delay, and classicVerb), and offers the ability to purchase popular third party plug-ins though its in-app store.
