The main differences between the two are that while Cubasis can handle MIDI tracks and software instruments, Auria doesn't support MIDI. On the other hand, Auria offers exceptional audio editing and mixing features, some of which would make seasoned Pro Tools users feel at home on the iPad. If you need to incorporate MIDI and audio instruments, I recommend recording your MIDI parts in Cubasis, rendering your MIDI tracks as audio files, and then importing them into Auri, where you can record the acoustic instruments.
Stay tuned for part two of Andrea's journey on Monday, which tackles the recording, mixing, and post-production process on an iPad.
