IK Multimedia just released the iRig Recorder for Android. I’m a android user myself and this is big news. Yeah, I got rid of my iPhone. Anyway, I’m immediately downloading this to my Galaxy S3 to see what it can do. I guess I can retire my Tascam field recorder. Here is what IK Multimedia has to say.
March 14, 2013, Modena, Italy — IK Multimedia — the leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories for iPhone and iPad — is proud to announce that its first Android app, iRig® Recorder, is now available on the Google Play Store. iRig Recorder is a powerful audio-recording app that turns any mobile Android device into a professional field recorder, and makes it easy to capture interviews, music performances, rehearsals, lectures, and more, with outstanding quality, anywhere.
About iRig Recorder
iRig Recorder’s powerful but easy-to-use audio-recording function starts recording immediately when the app is launched, making it the perfect “on the spot” field recorder. The app automatically groups recordings by date, tags them with geographic location information (if your device’s location services are enabled) and saves the original file as a backup. Recording time is limited only by the available memory on the device. iRig Recorder can be used with the built-in device microphone, or with IK’s microphones and mic accessories — all designed for capturing broadcast quality audio on the go.
Recording is only a part of the story with iRig Recorder. The available in-app purchase also provides a precise waveform editor, which allows for selecting, looping, cutting and cropping of the audio content. Automatic onboard audio-processing options can optimize recording levels and tone, remove background noise, and increase the overall audio quality so that anybody can produce professional quality audio on the go. The app can also speed up or slow down a recording without changing the timbre, and, with its onboard pro-sounding processing and editing features, it’s possible to produce podcasts or other types of audio productions, all without leaving the app.
Finished recordings can be easily shared by e-mail and FTP, over Bluetooth, through USB cables, to SD internal memory, or via apps installed on the device. Files can be exported as CD-quality WAV files, or as compressed .ogg files that range from 64 to 192 kbps.
Pricing and Availability
iRig Recorder for Android is available now on the Google Play Store for FREE. Editing, and additional effects processing can be added via in-app purchase for only $4.99
