AudioTools is a suite of professional-grade audio and acoustic analysis apps. Included in the price of this app is a great collection of professional tools -- SPL, RTA, FFT, Speaker Polarity Test, Generator, Audio Scope, CLF Viewer, and Recorder, and the framework to add more powerful modules as you need them.

Customize AudioTools for your needs by buying any of the additional optional modules, like Smaart Tools I, SPL Graph, or Impulse Response, at any time right from your iOS device.

We test every iOS device and calibrate the microphone level and frequency response for the best results. We have the ability to turn off the Apple low frequency filters, and on many devices we can measure up to 120 dB SPL.

Add iTestMic, iPrecisionMic, or iAudioInterface2 for a complete professional audio and acoustic test and measurement platform.

Actual reviews:

“...AudioTools is a “how did I ever live without it” app”.

“I think this application is the best I EVER purchased.”

“I have used many thousands of dollars of complicated test equipment that doesn’t measure up to this app suite.”

Detailed acoustic analysis, up to 32876 points. View full detail or smooth to 1/24, 1/6, 1/3 or octave. Includes cursor, scalable graphics, and peak tracking.

* Polarity
Speaker polarity checker. Route the test signal to a speaker, and read the polarity of the speaker on the screen.

* CLF Viewer
Show loudspeaker data, including plots for impedance, axial response, sensitivity, polar response, and 6dB coverage, and a 3D color balloon plot.

* Delay Finder
Measures the time it takes for a pulse to return from a speaker.

* Generator
Generates sine waves, square waves, white and pink noise.

* Line Level Tests
A line level measurement function and frequency counter.

* Audio Scope
A dual-channel audio oscilloscope that includes auto-triggering, variable gain and sweep rate, and storage of scope images.

* Recorder
A mono/stereo audio recorder with WAV and compressed formats and 8k-48k sample rate. Transfer files via WIFI.

* File transfer of results via wifi to PC / Mac.

Awesome app


I’ve used this app for years now and have not rated it but it has always been up in the 4-5 star range. Great updates and quick to fix any bugs. I thought I bought the SPL pro once but it never transferred to my newer devices. I could be wrong it was quite a while ago, but everything else has always transferred with all my new devices. I found that there is an option to restore purchases but I did have to click the SPL pro button first for the choice to restore to come up.
Andrew did respond but I had already figured it out. Thanks for your help and quick response.

Developer Response

Everything should come back with the Restore Purchases function, unless you had some in-apps that were bought from another App Store account.

Great app nice features


I only use a small percentage of the app but it is great to have all of this in one place. Plan on getting then calibrated USB mic.

Only current nit — don’t use the screen capture on IOS 11.0.2. If you need that try before you really need it or use the Apple supplied screen capture. On my device you loose most of the third octave bars and it totally clips the top of the graph. Hopefully when I upgrade to IOS 11.2 this will fix itself. If not, how the developers can research.

Smaart and Transfer Function are Great

I have been using SMAART Live for years on my PC to do live sound. This is so much cheaper and works just as well for a really good RTA. I have the transfer function add on as well. It's very affordable for use by any working audio engineer. I have advised many touring pros to get this. I have now purchased 2 iAudiodevice2 for Smaart and Transfer Function and and I love them. I used to use the Shure mic Pre with a USB hub for power and it worked great too.
