[Audio Unit Box Explorer]

Since its announcement in 2015, the number of audio units (AUv3) released on iOS has increased extraordinarily! But this success has some drawbacks, having a great overview of your plugins has become much more difficult and most of the time everything is mixed up.

Whether you are a budding music producer or passionate amateur musician, your goal is the same: having fun with your favorite audio units close at hand! Rather than spending time looking for them via grid and list with the sole search criterion of the name and the manufacturer.

AUBE is the app you need to get your collection organised. It provides a great overview of your audio units, your effects and instruments are automatically listed and classified. Information such as group, categories and features, are already available for most of the known audio units. You can explore, filter, set your favorites (available on iCloud), share badges on social media and more.

[AUBE Keyboard Extension]

AUBE also comes with a keyboard extension where you will find all of your audio unit effects and instruments organised by group. Your favorites are always placed on the top of each list. Use the filter in case you need to search for something more specific.

If your AUv3 host, such as Loopy Pro, AUM, Drambo, Zenbeats or ApeMatrix, provides a search text field in their audio units list dialog, you can locate your audio units right away with the AUBE keyboard!

If the host also updates the search and go status of the search text field, you can launch an AUv3 from the AUBE keyboard by tapping on the cell as it turns blue.

Finally, if you are looking for more inspiration, tap the dice button to get a random AUv3!

[It is worth mentioning that...]

Unknown AuV3:
• AUBE provides info about a lot of AUv3 available on the market, any unknown audio units will be moved to the default group section
• You can submit those unknown audio units via the page General, iCloud is required
• Submitting is a single export operation, any audio unit not referenced on the App Store will be ignored
• You cannot fill up the group, categories or features
• The submitted audio units will be classified by us and added to the AUBE database

Database (AUv3 classification info):
• The database available in AUBE already contains more than 1000 AUv3s!
• There are more and more AUv3 released frequently, the classification is not trivial and takes time
• Each free AUBE app update provided via the App Store contains the last version of the database (See updates history)
• Starting mid-April 2023, it will also be possible to get early access to the latest database version via in-app consumable purchases

• AUBE only lists the AUv3 available on the device on which it is installed
• AUBE cannot access your App Store purchase history. It's restricted by Apple for obvious privacy and security reasons
• Your favorites are privately shared across your different devices via iCloud
• Your favorites will be only visible if the audio units are installed on the device
• AUBE is not an AUv3, it does not make sounds! It's a standalone organizer app
• You cannot launch/run audio units in AUBE
• You cannot use the AUBE keyboard within an AUv3 host app which does not provide a search text field to locate audio units in a list
• Although AUBE is running on iOS 15.0, iOS 16.0 is required to create badges
• AUBE makes no warranties of any kind to the accuracy of the classification information provided. Contact us if you find anything that's not correct
