Customer Reviews

Master Record to convert Vinyl


I purchased Master Record to convert vinyl records to digital files, using a "line-in to iPad microphone inputs" cord. Master Record works exceedingly well for this task. The large digital VU meters, along with the superb input volume limiter is working wonders to keep my levels consistent. A problem that used be the plague of all my digital recordings. I also love the 2-band shelf EQ, I use it to boost the bass and hold back a bit of treble. I also love the easy to use interface, the running record timer, and the "web enable" feature in the Files tab. I do not have any love for introducing "flutter" or any kind of "noises". I wish that Master Record offered a bit of reverb, and soundstage widening effects, instead, maybe a "loudness switch" emulator would also be a nice addition as well. I keep flutter, saturation and noises at zero. But as I said the limiter, the 2 band EQ and "easy to use" interface, and web access, all add up to a superb program to help you get that vinyl onto your iPod. I can whole heatedly recommend Master Record for this task.

Very very good!

Hydra vein

It would ber tough for me to pick a favorite of Igor's apps. Each one has their little niche. Master Record offers some outstanding warmth/tape sim. for a crazy low price.

Good stuff Igor!

Side note: Developer is very approachable and timely in responding to emails and questions.

Analog Warmth


I import songs I compose with other iOS apps into Master Record so that I can simulate a bit of analog warmth. Like the dev's other app, Audio Mastering, Master Record is easy to use and achieves excellent results. The tape saturation feature alone is worth the price.
