Audreio plug-in is designed to stream high quality audio (16-bit over Wifi, 32-bit over cable) from one computer to another computer or to an iOS device running Audreio iOS. If you’re streaming audio between projects/devices set to different sample rates, Audreio will automatically convert the audio to match the receiver’s sample rate and channel count. The Audreio plug-in can be downloaded in AudioUnit format (for Mac OS X hosts such as Logic, Live, Studio One, and Digital Performer), VST3 64-bit and VST2 64-bit (for Mac OS X or Windows hosts such as Cubase, Studio One, FL Studio, and SONAR), and an AAX version will be released in the near future.
If you’re sending a mono audio stream to a stereo receiver Audreio will copy the data into both channels. If sending a stereo signal to a mono receiver, Audreio will sum the signal and send a mono stream to the receiver.
Instantiate Audreio on the track that has the audio you would like to send. Audreio will automatically detect any devices running Audreio on the same local network. When multiple devices are available the left/right arrows or page indicators can be used to browse to the desired device.
On the other device tap “Connect” on the item that represents this Audreio device. The plugin will display “network status” indicators that represent the health of your local network conditions.
Create an Aux track and route the output of this track to the input of the track you will be recording the incoming signal. Some hosts might require to enable Monitoring mode on the receiving track so that live audio passes thru to the output.
Instantiate Audreio on the Aux track. Audreio will automatically detect any devices running Audreio on the same local network. When multiple devices are available the left/right arrows or page indicators can be used to browse to the desired device.
Tap “Connect” to start receiving audio from the desired device. The plugin will display “network status” indicators that represent the health of your local network conditions.
Connect to an iOS device or the Desktop Client to send and receive audio simultaneously.
Use an iOS device running Audreio iOS as if it were an effect plug-in. When an iOS device becomes available to connect to, click the roundtrip icon (the two arrows) next to the device and then click the connect button. Then just load an IAA effect on your iOS device.
Since version 1.2, Audreio now shows up as an Instrument in your DAW. Loading the Audreio plug-in as an Instrument allows using an iOS device as if it were a software synthesizer within your DAW. Incoming MIDI will be sent to the iOS device which will then return audio to the DAW.
Reliable streaming of uncompressed audio over wi-fi depends heavily on your router and network conditions. Audreio for AU includes a simple latency slider to adjust the latency (delay) of the incoming audio stream. To access the latency slider, click the Settings icon in the upper right section of the plug-in window. When latency is set low, the potential for audio glitches is increased. To minimize the risk of audio glitches set the slider to a higher latency position. A higher latency setting will result in greater delay latency of the incoming signal, but can also help reduce potential audio glitches while streaming. Click the Settings icon again to return to the main view.
Audreio is designed to route high quality audio from one iOS device to another iOS device, or to a desktop DAW running Audreio plug-in, over a local network. The connection between devices can be made either wirelessly or using the standard device cable. Once a connection is made via Audreio’s input section, you can stream the output from a sender to the input of a receiver.
Tap the + icon to load an input. The input can be set to an IAA (Inter-App Audio) app, the built-in microphone, another iOS device running Audreio, or a desktop DAW running Audreio plug-in, or a recorded file.
Audreio can route audio to an IAA host (e.g. GarageBand), to a “Remote Input”, or to Audreio's own internal recorder. To send audio to an IAA host, choose Audreio as an IAA Instrument in the host app. To send audio to another device, select this device as the input to the other device. The output section will display an icon representing the receiver.
Tap the + icon to the left of the transport controls to load an effect. The input can be set an IAA (Inter-App Audio) effect or another iOS device running Audreio. The loaded effect will process the signal coming from the input, before it gets to the output.
Record the incoming audio by tapping the record button in the output section. To stop recording simply tap again. Once recording is over, Audreio allows you to preview the recording, rename the file, and either save or discard it. To discard the recording swipe up on the "Save" icon and tap the "X".
To export a file via AudioCopy, simply press and hold the filename on the Inputs screen. To export a file via iTunes, go to the Apps section of the iOS device in iTunes, scroll down to File Sharing, and select Audreio. You will see all recorded files and will be able to save or add others.
To delete a recorded file, swipe the file to the left in the Inputs screen and select Delete. You cannot undo this.
The transport controls appear when an IAA app hosts Audreio, or when sending to a remote connection that is hosted by an IAA app. If Audreio is hosting an IAA app, it passes transport commands from that app down to its IAA host or its remote connection.
A plug-in can connect to send and receive audio simultaneously. When this happens, the screen is divided into two sections, with the top section representing the outgoing audio and the bottom section representing the incoming audio.
Tap the Settings icon to adjust the streaming latency. The further the slide is set to the left, the lower the latency of the incoming signal will be. Streaming performance and the likelihood of audio glitches is directly tied to the latency setting and your network conditions. Higher latency settings can help reduce audio artifacts.
The Desktop Client for Remote connections is available on 64-bit Windows and Mac OS X. It is free to download and requires an Audreio account to use. Once logged in, the Audreio iOS App and the plug-in can both be used to connect to the Desktop Client.

Make sure that Audreio is open (and in the foreground on iOS) on at least one other device, and that both are connected to the same local network.
Tap the settings icon and move the Latency slider to the right. This will increase the latency but also reduce the risk of audio glitches.
Lower the audio buffer size of your host or IAA app. We recommend using buffer sizes of 256 samples or fewer.
Audio Unit plug-in support is disabled by default in Live. To enable go to Preferences -> "File Folder" and set "Use Audio Units" to On.
