Hokusai Audio Editor

Hokusai is an app for iOS devices which allows you to edit audio tracks. You can use an already existing track or record your own. There is a wide array of editing options available, such as filters and special effects. Also, you can work on several tracks simultaneously and even mix them. The final version can then be exported, saved, and shared.

Evaluation: Hokusai is a simple editing software for tablets and smartphones. Just about any operation can be performed very easily with a touch of your finger. In addition, thanks to the various effects and filters available, Hokusai allows you to produce very professional sounding recordings.

Cost: Free. An upgrade may be purchased with additional tools and effects.
