Got an Idea? AirLoop it!
AirLoop 4-Track Recorder is the place for you to capture your musical ideas in 4-track fullness right one your iPhone, iTouch, or iPad (iOS 4.0 or higher). Recording is easy, and when you've created that masterpiece, you can share it with friends or send it to yourself via attached files in email. Airloop can export and share your music to QuickTime playable files (.m4a) or you can share the Core Audio File track data (.caf). The Core Audio tracks can be easily imported directly into GarageBand with just a few clicks. It has never been easier to be creative. Play on!
I chose this app because I really wanted a simple app that would allow me to make multitrack recordings and easily share them with friends. This was one of the only apps of its kind that would allow you to email finished recordings.
The recording process was easy enough, but the email feature is essentially worthless if the file size is too big to be sent via email. I did a 2 minute long, 3-track demo and gmail couldn't handle it. That doesn't leave much room for creativity.
If there was a way to compress the file for email (or do mp3 format instead of QuickTime m4a), then this app would rule.
Also, sometimes it doesn't export all of the tracks and you end up with just the first track when you open it in your email.
I love this app. Airloop is amazing, it's the best, well, the only app I know of that lets you overdub your recordings. You can use it to record melody and harmony to songs, or piano, guitar, drums, and singing all on the same recording. Get it.
It's pretty good, but a little too complicated. Something like this doesn't need to be as complicated as this app. The little faults of the app add up, but if you are looking for a quick recording where you can record four parts, it's decent for it, especially for 1.99.
