FabFilter is proud to announce availability of all FabFilter Pro plug-ins in the AUv3 format for iOS on the iPad. They can be used in any AUv3-compatible host, including GarageBand, Cubasis, AUM, Auria, and n-Track Pro.

Apple’s iPad has become a more serious music production platform in recent years, thanks to more processing power and the advent of the AUv3 plug-in format. FabFilter has been offering its plug-ins as in- app purchases in the popular Auria host for quite some time, but they could not be used in other hosts. With this release, all FabFilter Pro plug-ins are available to use in any DAW on the iPad that supports AUv3 plug-ins.

As might be expected, FabFilter has put a lot of effort into refining and tweaking the plug-in interfaces with great touch behaviour and support for various interface sizes, including full screen support in all plug-ins.

FabFilter Pro-Q 3, Pro-C 2, Pro-DS, and Pro-G are available individually for $29.99 USD. Pro-L 2, Pro-R, and Pro-MB are available for $39.99 USD. Users can purchase all AUv3 Pro plug-ins for iOS as a Pro Bundle for $129.99 USD. It is possible to purchase one or more AUv3 plug-ins now and upgrade to the AUv3 Pro Bundle later, in which case users will pay just the remaining sum.

For an overview of all available AUv3 plug-ins and bundles, see: www.fabfilter.com/ios

Upgrading to FabFilter Pro-Q 3 (AUv3)

Users who purchased the AUv3 plug-in version of FabFilter Pro-Q 2 for iOS earlier can upgrade to the AUv3 version of Pro-Q 3 by purchasing the Pro-Q 3 Upgrade Bundle. If one already owns Pro-Q 2 AUv3 for iOS, the amount that was paid for it earlier will be deducted from the bundle price, resulting in up to 50% discount for the upgrade.

About FabFilter plug-ins in Auria

Until recently, FabFilter plug-ins were only available on iOS as in-app purchases in Auria. Users of the in-app FabFilter plug-ins in Auria can of course continue to use these and FabFilter will keep supporting them. New plug-ins, like Pro-Q 3, will only be made available in the AUv3 format so they can be used both in Auria and in other hosts.

Unfortunately, App Store limitations make it impossible to offer an upgrade path from the plug-ins bought as in-app purchases in Auria to the new AUv3 plug-ins.
