Included Effects

In addition to the ChannelStrip and MasterStrip, Auria comes with a number of individual effect plugins which can be used either as channel inserts or on aux sends:

PSP StereoChorus

A stereo chorusing processor. PSP StereoChorus offers you full control of its processing, allowing for a wide variety of modulation effects from a subtle thickening effect to wild stereo flanging. PSP StereoChorus also comes with a handful of extremely useful factory presets that cover the variety of modulation effects you can get from this very powerful processor.

PSP StereoDelay

A high quality stereo delay and echo processor. PSP StereoDelay can be used for a wide variety of delay effects from a simple slap back and sustain through ping-pong delays and unusual spacious echoes. PSP StereoDelay also comes with a handful of extremely useful factory presets that cover a wide range of this plug-in's settings.

Convolution Reverb

A reverb designed to recreate the acoustics of specific places/devices. Works by first loading particular Impulse Response, taken from the specific place/device being emulated.

ClassicVerb

A simple, CPU-friendly reverb.


 

Optional In-App Purchases

Auria supports third-party add-ons which are for sale through the in-app Auria Store. These include effect plugins, additional convolution IRs, video features, and more.

Drumagog 5

Drumagog is a software plug-in which replaces acoustic drum tracks with your choice of other samples. But Drumagog also offers the “secret weapons” top mix engineers use to give hit records polish and power. It is this exclusive combination of replacement and enhancement tools that has made Drumagog the industry standard for more than a decade.

ClassicVerb Pro

ClassicVerb Pro is a more advanced version of the included ClassicVerb, with a more sophisticated reverb algorithm and additional controls.

 

PSP Echo

PSP Echo is a high quality echo processor. PSP Echo’s powerful and unusual features combined with its smooth operation makes it ideal for all kinds of creative uses from simple slap back and sustain effects through ping-pong delays and spacious echoes. Use the delay sliders to add special tape echo effects for even more unique effects. The tape wow control and built in ducker further extend the creative potential of PSP Echo. Internally, the Echo is like a combination of four mono tape delays—two for the initial ping-pong pre-delay and two for the main stereo echo. PSP Echo includes a set of extremely useful factory presets that cover a wide range of this plug-in’s settings.

PSP MicroWarmer

A digital simulation of an analog-style single band limiter/tape emulator. This plug-in combines rich, warm analog-style processing with a straightforward user interface. We paid careful attention to PSP MicroWarmer's overload characteristics, so that this processor is fully capable of generating saturation effects typical of analog tape recorders. PSP MicroWarmer also incorporates VU metering together with accurate overload indicators, thereby assuring professional results.

PSP oldTimer

PSP oldTimer is a vintage-style compressor designed for track or program compression and limiting. PSP oldTimer is so simple and so easy to use, that it's difficult to make it sound bad even at extreme settings!

 

PSP PianoVerb 2

PSP PianoVerb reproduces a special kind of reverberation originally provided by piano strings. It generates reverberation using twelve string operators with adjustable damping and decay times. Each of them is tuned to a particular note starting from A(55Hz) to a G#(103.8Hz). The PSP PianoVerb string system can be transposed in the range of +-24 semitones, tuned within a range of +-100 cents, and can be detuned as well. Transposing to lower octaves produces a bigger and less resonant sound similar to traditional reverbs, while in turn transposing to higher octaves produces a very bright harp-like effect.

PSP SpringVerb 2

PSP SpringVerb2 is an emulation of a hardware spring reverberator. It recreates several sound features typical for a spring reverb like a convincing boing on transients or repeatable yet resonating character with a musical and adjustable presence. A selection of configurations from two to four springs total is provided and ability to set a stereo spread to suit various mix set ups - from a usual guitar reverb to an interesting option as a send reverb in the mix.

FabFilter Micro

The ultimate lightweight filter plug-in, making the classic FabFilter sound affordable for everyone. With just one filter and an envelope follower to modulate its frequency, it can be used for simple filtering tasks, sound coloring and creative filtering effects. The key feature of FabFilter Micro is its unique resonating, screaming and saturating filter that we first created for the FabFilter One synthesizer. It features both LP and HP filter shapes and an adjustable envelope follower to modulate the filter frequency according to the incoming audio signal. Furthermore, independent input and output gain controls enable you to saturate the filter more or less depending on your distortion needs!

FabFilter Pro-C

FabFilter Pro-C is a high quality compressor plug-in with various beautiful program dependent compression styles. Professionals will be delighted with the high quality sound, while the innovative interface makes compression easy to grasp for everyone. Supports side-chaining.

FabFilter Pro-G

A good gate/expander is an indispensable tool in any mixing or live situation. FabFilter Pro-G offers everything you could wish for: perfectly tuned algorithms, excellent metering and great interface design. Supports side-chaining.

 

FabFilter Pro-L

FabFilter Pro-L is a feature-packed limiter plug-in for mastering and mixing, with multiple advanced limiting algorithms and very accurate metering.

 

FabFilter Pro-Q

The equalizer is by far the most used tool in audio recording, mixing and mastering. That's why there are probably around 1001 EQ plug-ins available. But the strange thing is: most of them don't meet top quality standards by far! Most just lack sound quality and the ones that do sound okay often have poorly designed interfaces that obstruct your workflow and creativity.

Now here's where we come in. FabFilter Pro-Q gives you the best of both worlds: the highest possible sound quality, and an innovative interface that is designed to help you get 'that' sound quickly and easily.

Key features include up to 24 separate EQ bands (bell, low cut, low shelf, high shelf and high cut), state-of-the-art filter algorithms with precise analog modeling and unlimited internal headroom, zero-latency or linear-phase processing, mid/side support, customizable stereo placement for every band (stereo, left/mid or right/side), 6 dB, 12 dB, and 30 dB display ranges and the easiest yet most powerful EQ interface ever.

FabFilter Saturn

FabFilter Saturn is a multiband distortion, saturation and amp modelling plug-in, with lots of modulation options. Supports side-chaining.
