When capturing and mixing audio is your life, you need your tools wherever you go. Thanks to certain advances in technology, portability, and on-the-go recording is a reality. Simple plug and play options and that little handheld computer you’ve got in your pocket make it so.

One of the more popular and feature-heavy mixing apps in the App Store is AUM – Audio mixer. The AUM – Audio Mixer app is a flexible mixing deck that places all the advanced mixing functions right at your fingertips wherever and whenever you need them. Take your standard mixing deck and all of its functions and now imagine all of those capabilities in a single app. That’s AUM – Audio Mixer.

It’s not enough to have an app that offers up limited functionality or a few key features. If you’re involved in the world of professional audio, then you need the entire toolset at your disposal. AUM is easily the most professional-friendly mixing app that you’ll find. Don’t believe me? Let’s take a look at the wide-range of capabilities of this seemingly simple app.

You can connect hardware inputs and outputs, Audio unit extensions, Inter-App Audio apps, Audiobus, sound file players, built-in signal processing and filters, in any configuration you want. This completely customizable set-up allows you to adapt to any professional need, no matter how blind-sided you might be by the demand.

Taking it even further, you can route anything to anywhere with mix-busses, effect sends, audiobus ports and external multi-channel audio interfaces. You’d be hard-pressed to find this full gamut of routing options in any other app.

Then there’s the matter of recording straight into the app. You can record mixes and individual tracks straight into the storage space of AudioShare with a synchronized start and end.

And, of course, we’ve only begun to scratch the surface of AUM – Audio Mixer’s capabilities. How about playback recordings, sound files and loops as channel sources for backing tracks or mixing? Honestly, there’s really nothing this beast of an app can’t do.

I wouldn’t expect you to just take my word for it, so check out the AUM – Audio Mixer app yourself by heading to the App Store.
