Hokusai is a multitrack audio editor for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Record or import a track, and make it sound the way you want it to: not just trimming the ends, but full cut, copy, paste and delete, and a suite of filters and special effects available. "Beautiful clutter-free interface" — TouchProducer.com "Hokusai will convince you that audio was meant to be edited with a touch screen — it's just so natural within this app that you’ll find yourself consistently coming back to it." — iOS Music And You Edit many tracks side-by-side, mix them together, and export to Wave or MP4 format — then transfer them to your computer, send them to another app on your device, or upload to cloud services. Hokusai is streamlined to give you a clean, clear view of your tracks. Use the familiar pinch and swipe gestures to zoom right in and fiddle with fine detail, or step back to see the big picture. Select pieces of audio. Live "scrubbing" means you can hear the sound under your fingertip as you make your adjustments. And you needn't fear a bad edit with our full undo/redo support — even after closing your project. Hokusai comes free with a set of useful tools such as fade in/out, normalise volume levels, reverse time, and basic synthesis. If you need more power, you can upgrade from inside the app to add new tools and effects, including: Per-track volume/mute/panning, selecting across multiple tracks at once, presets and favourites, grain synthesis, noise gating, time-stretching, pitch-bending, echo, reverb, modulation (AM & FM), resonance, distortion, grunge, vocal levelling, monster voice, high/low/band-pass/notch-cut filter and more — many of which can be previewed live.



  • Efficient but buggy

    By 20M13P02
    This is an amazing app! I’ve been using it to cut my music and it works miracles (most of the time). There are some times when I would select a region to begin cutting, and then it would just automatically slide to some other spot. Or I would slide the cutter to cover the region I want to delete, and then it would just shrink to where I selected it. Over and over again. This is probably the only complaint I have regarding this and it is rather frustrating to deal with. Please take this into consideration and hopefully make changes to fix this bug. Thank you for reading
  • Doesn’t Get The Attention It Should

    By imjustsarah515
    I don’t think this app gets the attention it should! It’s a really robust app and does a hell-of-a lot more than “it should.” This app is comparable to say... Audacity on the desktop. It’s a very functional and easy to use mobile audio editing tool that beginners, hobbiests, and even professionals will find helpful — and it has a clean interface... unlike SO many other video and audio editing apps. Give it a shot!
  • Best audio editor ever to exist on the App Store! 😍🤩

    By connor2071
    I use this app for a few different purposes actually: to make my remixes, make clean versions, and make the bleep sound. Lol. I honestly don’t see why the review is so low... it’s the simplest, but most advanced, audio editor I have ever used. This is actually my second year using this... and I have been a happy user because of all the features it has to it. Thank you for making such a good app! ❤️
  • Excellent!

    One of the best application in app store!👍
  • Perfect and Free!

    By TheLarrys
    We were looking for an app that would let us import songs from iTunes, cut out pieces of each song, then splice them together into one track. This app lets us do just that, it’s easy to figure out, and it has a user guide built in. I’d give it 10 stars if I could.
  • Perfect

  • Perfect app

    Does everything perfectly for editing music files.
  • Impressed

    By noeticMuse
    I am impressed. Fine work has been done here with many important basic sound editing features. Multi-track controls. Import/export. Timeline control. Plus all the fx. I hope this nice little app never goes away.
  • Fantastic, one feature request

    By HelloWorld1337
    This is the app I was looking for. I needed import export, minor trim functionality, and some gain manipulation. This did all that, and has plenty of tools as my needs grow. My only feature request would be to expand the output formats. I’m currently using the free version, but would love purchase the paid version to expand the exports to include mp3 (specifically) and other formats (generally). This would allow me to do my entire workflow in this one app. Thanks @dev for consideration.
