Audiostar Pro Multitrack Recording Mixer

Posted by Mikers On November - 5 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS

Joining developer, Procypher Software’s lengthy list of iOS apps, is this bold (and pricey) move into the DAW space. I’m going to make an early call on it based on the features (and lack there of…Hello, ‘editing’ option anyone?), along with the uninspiring user interface, and say this one is destined for the bargain bin. You decide anyway!
