Customer Reviews


Using the iRig Recorder with the iRig Pre interface was a snap. The recording quality is very good for interview/vocals. Using an iPad and dowloading the in app All Functionalities Bundle seems to be a good value that adds lots of flexibility to this app for editing purposes. Exporting files may be another issue however. Included are options for FTP file transfer or Sound Cloud exporting. My preference would be to use the more widely accessible Dropbox as an option. For this reason I give it four out of five stars.

Doesn't even deserve 1 star

Ummm... I recorded something but it wouldn't play back. There's what looks to be a playback button on the right side of the file bar, but that's just to edit, which you need the full version to use. Fair enough.

On the left side of the file bar is a play button that appears to do something... You see the time marker move as if it's playing. My speaker is on and my volume is up, but no sound.

Okay, I figure I need to explore a bit so I went to "Help" on the menu screen. Here's the kicker: you can't get to help without registering the app. Sorry, but that's more intrusiveness than this app deserves so far.

There are other editing programs. I'm going to use one of them.

Works one minute, not the next

First of all, I don't like an app that goes with a product I purchased (iRig Microphone) that keeps asking me to upgrade to do more stuff. Second, when I practiced with this it worked fine. Then when I went to do a live recording it recorded nothing. The iRig microphone continues to work great with my Tascam app, but it's 'hit or miss' with the iRig Mic app. Not worth chancing a failure to record. The iRig microphone also works great recording live video.
