Multi Track Song Recorder Pro

Posted by Mikers On January - 28 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen568x568 (3)Multi-Track Song Recorder Pro is a premier iOS music recording app. MTSR Pro allows you to record up to 4 tracks for infinite recording time with an advertising free experience. Made to be easy to use for beginners, but has the depth for creative and more advanced music recording.


Playing back all tracks in CD quality; 16 bit, 44.1kHz

Pause, seek, and scrub through recorded audio easily to help write/record your music

Includes 2 different audio viewing options; Volume meter and Waveform. Each shows detailed audio information including peaks and clipping

Includes Mixdown function to merge audio tracks and export as m4a (MPEG-4 – AAC) compressed audio files

Includes Metronome with 3/4 and 4/4 time signatures

Allows volume control on each track for simple mixing

Allows you to save/load your Audio Sessions

Allows you to import music from your device’s iPod Library into any track you wish

Includes Dropbox support, which lets you export your songs directly to your Dropbox

Multi Track Song Recorder is the perfect iOS app for musicians looking to write and record simple songs at home or on the fly! Also useful for lecture notes, voice memos, and song ideas!

Tips and hints:
When recording one track, all other tracks will play as well. Wearing headphones will avoid recording the other tracks into the armed track and causing bleed-through.

The play button at the bottom serves to play all tracks.

The pause button at the bottom is a universal pause that pauses any track that is playing. When paused you can resume play of a different track or all tracks at the time position that was paused.

The slider at the bottom is used to seek or scrub through the recorded audio. Scrubbing is when you seek through audio while its playing in real time. To scrub simply drag the slider at any time while audio is playing. You can seek similarly by dragging the slider when audio is paused or stopped, this places the time position you would like the audio to start.

Adjust volume by dragging the slider of the corresponding track.

Warning: If your device does not have a microphone you must use headphones with an integrated microphone in order to record.

Don’t forget to submit a review and stay tuned for more updates coming soon!

Posted by Mikers On October - 29 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (8)n-Track Studio is an audio and MIDI multitrack recorder that turns your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a full-fledged recording studio. You can record and playback a virtually unlimited number of audio and MIDI tracks, mix them during playback and add effects.
You can also edit, cut, copy and paste, zoom and drag waveforms.
All the audio tracks are saved as standard wave files and mixed “on the fly” during playback.
Once you are satisfied with the recording you can send it by email with a touch of the finger. Or you can mixdown the recorded song in standard .wav or .m4a format which you can later open with any 3rd party audio application or use to create an audio CD. You can also export the song in multitrack .sng format and open it with the desktop (Mac and Windows) version of n-Track.
2nd and 3rd generation iPod Touch devices require an external mic.

How it works
• Record a base track (i.e. rythm guitar) with the built-in mic
• Plug a standard headphone, record a solo or vocal track while listening to the rythm track
• Press play to listen to the multitrack recording, use the mixer to adjust levels, pan, apply EQ add effects
• Email the recording directly from your device

Main features
• The max number of tracks depends on the device capabilities, with the iPad or iPhone 4 you can typically use 10 tracks or more
• EQ with Spectrum analyzer + chromatic guitar Tuner
• Import existing tracks from your iTunes library
• Reverb, Echo, Chorus+Flanger, Tremolo, Pitch Shift, Phaser, Tube-Amp and Compression effects can be added to any track and master channel
• MIDI tracks with builtin synth featuring 128 General MIDI instrument sounds, MIDI editing in the Piano Roll window, support for external MIDI keyboard and inter-app MIDI
• n-Track is available for Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Exchange and share your projects on all your desktop and mobile devices
• Supports Audiobus: you can send audio from other apps to n-Track, play your favorite instrument app and record the output inside n-Track alongside the device mic/line input. Each Audiobus app can be recorded to a separate track
• Supports interapp audio: receive audio from instrument apps (interapp audio requires iOS 7)

Advanced features
• Support for multichannel external audio devices on the iPad: record 4 or more tracks simultaneously from pro-audio devices such as the RME Babyface, Fireface, Focusrite Scarlett etc.
• Choose microphone on multi-mic devices and set microphone polar pattern (e.g. cardiod, omnidirectional)
• Set recording resolution to 16, 24 or 32 bits
• Set sampling frequency up to 192 khz (frequencies above 48000 hz require an external audio device)
• Allows monitoring and processing live audio input with near-zero latency
• Automate track volumes and pan using volume and pan envelopes
• Use group channels to group and process tracks together
• Support for multiple audio output when using compatible USB devices
• 3D frequency spectrum
• AudioCopy & Paste allows transferring audio files between compatible apps

Standard vs Pro editions
• n-Track Pro includes all the features that are otherwise available as in-app purchases for the n-Track app. In short n-Track Pro = n-Track + all available in-app purchases

WaveMachine Labs – Auria compeition!

Posted by Mikers On October - 24 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS


Are you a fan of Auria? The guys at WaveMachine Labs would like to know more about it, and are willing to reward you for telling them. Though rather than some simple ’25 words or less’ competition, they want you to record a short video ‘showing’ how you use this powerful recording app, and it can be as ‘lo-fi’ as a phone recorded video to as slick and professional as you like, although they’re note awarding extra points for a James Cameron production. Just capture yourself doing what you do, and send it in!  Here’s a link to the details on the competition, or you can just keep reading the details below – http://review.wizehive.com/contests/auria-video-contest






It’s hard to believe, but it’s been just over a year since we launched Auria.  So, we decided this would be a great time to give a really big THANK YOU to our loyal customers, and at the same time learn more about how Auria is being used in the real world.  So, we are announcing:
The $11,000 “WHAT THE #%&@ ARE YOU DOING WITH AURIA” Video Contest!
The focus is on you and your music or whatever else you are using Auria for.  What kind of projects are you working on?  How has working on the iPad changed how you work?  Which plug-ins do you use most often?  These are just some sample questions.  We want to know what’s on YOUR mind.  So here’s the deal:

We are inviting you to show us how you are using Auria in a video up to 4 minutes long.  You can focus on a project/song you are working on and the sound track of the video can include the entire song, just excerpts, or no song at all.  You can focus on recording, editing, mixing, or all three.  You can tell us about techniques that you have come up with to work faster or better.  You can shoot it with your phone or whatever device you have.  We’re not looking for Hollywood quality video here – it’s the content that matters!  We will take all your submitted videos, pick the finalists, and post them on our contest site for the public to vote on.  Submissions that have the most interesting and engaging content, in the opinion of the judges, will be moved into the final public round of voting.  Oh, and by the way, in addition to the WaveMachine Labs team, we’ll be getting some help in picking the finalists from Grammy Award winning composer/producer/engineer David Kahne and legendary producer/engineer Bob Bullock.  (Listing their respective credits would take up WAY too much space, but you can check them out for yourself on the web.)  In this business, it never hurts to get your work in front of top pros like Bob and David.

So it’s a win-win deal.  We get smarter about how people are using Auria and you get a chance to win some awesome prizes for sharing your stories with us.

“Okay”, you might be wondering, “what are the prizes!?”  We did go a little crazy here, thanks to our insanely great sponsors: AKG, Apogee and JBL Pro.  In fact, we went all the way to “11” – 11 thousand dollars in prizes, that is.  Our first prize package alone is worth over $7,000 and is pretty much a dream system for any iOS producer.  And the second and third prizes are pretty great too!  Click on the PRIZES tab above to see for yourself.  When you are ready to jump in, head on over to the HOW TO ENTER and ENTER NOW tabs and GET IN THE GAME!

Moo Cow Music have been quiet for awhile, and now I know why! They’ve been working on this comprehesive band-in-a-box music production app! Looks very interesting indeed.

Ever wanted a recording studio in the palm of your hand? Looptical is a complete music production solution for iPhone and iPod touch.
Record your musical ideas on the go and mix them into a finished track, or use them as the basis for a new project back at your studio. Create looped sections of music and combine them to form larger musical sections until you have a finished song. Going from an initial riff idea to full track is easy with Looptical. Then mix the track with comprehensive effects and fully automated mixer controls, or export the MIDI and component audio tracks to your DAW when back at the studio to take your song one step further.
- Play keys with a single or dual 128 key keyboard layout, complete with pitch/mod wheel.
- Use the Scale Keyboard to play scales effortlessly by sliding a finger up and down the screen.
- Strum your way through your own palette of chords with the Chord Guitar.
- Use the Latched Arpeggiator to turn simple chords into sequences of notes.
- Use Quantize to tidy up your performance, and Undo any mistakes.
- Songwriting in Looptical involves creating Loops: building blocks for a song that could be a one bar bassline, an 8 bar chorus, or a 100 bar indulgent guitar solo.
- Use the Loop Bank to combine, merge, repeat, and insert these Loops to form larger riffs, and ultimately a complete song.
- Use the Event List to perform mass edits of notes, such as tweaking velocity, quantize or transpose.
- Add and mix up to 24 stereo tracks with Looptical’s Mixer.
- Add up to 5 Insert effects (Overdrive, Bit Crusher, Compressor, EQ, Filter, Chorus/Flanger, Phaser, Trance Gate, Delay) to each track, and a single Reverb Send effect.
- All mixer and effect parameters are automated and changes are recorded directly into the song.
- Record vocals with the iPhone internal microphone or compatible audio interface and add your own effects with live monitoring.
- Control input with an intuitive preamp-style gain and noise gate.
- Record audio tracks directly from any Inter-App Audio (iOS7) Instrument app.
- Use Audiobus (requires purchase from third party) to send and receive live audio to other Audiobus-enabled apps.
- If the 95 keyboard and 50 drum presets (including 600 individual drum hits) are not enough, create your own from scratch.
- Import samples via iTunes Shared Folder, from another iPhone music app via the clipboard, or resample the current song.
- Effortlessly create an entire new instrument from a single sample, or add further samples for a multi-sampled instrument.
- Edit your sample to trim, chop, loop, amplify, fade or reverse sections.
- Export your instrument to use again, or even share with others via the Looptical forum.
- Plug in an iPhone-compatible MIDI keyboard and you can break out of the iPhone screen and compose using a full hardware piano keyboard.
- Play drum parts by assigning piano keys to each pad, or effortlessly noodle a solo by playing the Scale Piano from the major keys.
- Assign spare MIDI controllers such as Pan or Modulation to directly control automation parameters in Looptical insert effects.
