What can you use the app for?

AudioSauna is a fully featured audio workstation. Users can maximize creativity by building their own music tracks. The application provides the user with a place to create music that can be saved and exported as an audio file. The computer keyboard is used to create melodies. Built in audio effects include delay and reverb. A mixer tool provides access to mute, pan, solo and AUX 1 and AUX 2 levels. A virtual analog synthesizer offers various filter types, ADSR envelopes, distortion, chorus, bitrate and unlimited transpose, portamento, polyphony and more. A frequency modulation synthesizer is also available. The advanced sampler lets users import MP3s and .WAV files. Users can also sample level, pan, fine tune and transpose.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

AudioSauna was launched in to beta in June of 2011. The application has earned significant attention for its many features and editing tools. Users can completely customize sound to create entirely new music tracks that can be downloaded and stored or shared with others. The application enjoyed over 150,000 Chrome installations by March of 2012 as well as a new mixer update. AudioSauna continues to attract music lovers and DJs.

What are the differences to other apps?

AudioSauna takes things a bit further than most free online audio applications. Rather than providing a handful of sound options and a place to play them in, AudioSauna gives users an enormous collection of music editing tools. Many of the sounds, effects and settings are designed for users with some experience, adding a professional layer to the AudioSauna package. The application is very sophisticated and gives the user a variety of ways to add detail and depth to their music.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

AudioSauna looks as good as it works. The application favors a realistic interface that gives the user eth illusion of working with an actual mixer. Sleek silver dials shine beside simple slider buttons and numeric settings. Keyboard keys line the left side, above additional rows of silver dials and sliders. The experience has a modern yet realistic feel that works exceptionally well for the application’s intended purpose. The only downside is that new or inexperienced users may be intimidated until they get the hang of each function.

How does the registration process work?

AudioSauna makes it as easy as possible for new users to give it a try. Any visitor on the homepage can access the workstation by clicking the dark blue “Open Studio!” button. Doing so takes the user directly to the workstation. Users are not required to provide any personal information. No registration option is offered, however a few menus at the top, left side of the interface lets the user save music to their computer.

What does it cost to use the application?

AudioSauna is available to all users at no cost. There are no subscription fees and users can create as many new songs as they like. There is no registration option, so charging a fee would be somewhat difficult. The free price is an excellent way to get more users to visit AudioSauna and try their hand at making unique music. The application puts no noticeable limitations on user access.

Who would you recommend the application to?

AudioSauna is a great resource for anyone who loves to make music. Users who have no music making experience may have a hard time at first because the application is so detailed. There are many settings and features to learn, so users should prepare to do some experimenting before creating a musical masterpiece. The application is free and doesn’t require an account, giving users unrestricted access to each function and setting.
