Auria Audio Interface Compatibility

Auria supports both standard 2-channel USB audio interfaces and multichannel USB audio interfaces. In order to use a multichannel interface with Auria, it must be USB Class 2.0 Compliant. Not all USB2 audio interfaces support Class 2.0. Appleā€™s Core Audio must recognize the interface without the need for a driver. In other words, if the interface works on a Mac without needing a driver, it will most likely work with Auria. Learn more about Auria Pro here.

Some audio interfaces that use the Camera Connection Kit (CCK) require the use of a powered USB hub in-between the interface and the iPad. We have indicated those interfaces for which it has been confirmed that a powered hub is not necessary.

Some MFi-based interfaces will also charge the iPad during use, and these have been indicated as well.

The following interfaces have been tested in-house or reported by users to be compatible with Auria (sorted by Interfaces- Input Channels, then alphabetically, followed by Digital Mixers- Input Channels, then alphabetically). Click the interface name to visit the manufacturer's product page.
