Perfect form & function


Apps designed to go with specific pieces of equipment are often a weak point. Not this time. This app does everything you would expect it to do, in the way you would expect to do it. It does not distract from the main task of sound recording, which is to get the content, performance, and acoustics right.
That said, I have not used many advanced features, since my workflow is: record using Motiv on iPod Touch, AirDrop to the Mac, and edit with Audacity there.


Music Whizz

I bought my MV88 specifically to record live bands. The VU meters in this app clearly indicate that it is not clipping yet the recording sounds clipped. I have yet to manage to get a live recording of a band that sounds better than the iPhone built-in mic. For medium to low volume sounds it works well, but otherwise I am dissatisfied.

And why is there no facility to save named user presets?

Developer Response

Sorry to hear that you're experiencing issues recording. If the source is extremely loud, we recommend using flat mode with the gain at 0db. Please feel free to contact our team at if you'd like further help troubleshooting.

Fantastic for recording classical guitar and voice


Full control over all the microphone settings. LOVE IT !
