What's New in Version 1.5
Fixed crashes that occur when device runs low on free space.
This app works well. It does a good job or separating tracks. It then converts them from wav to mp4 in the background to save space. You can then transfer to your computer - nice!
So more specifics - I have a turntable hooked up to an older receiver. I used an iRig (analog) to hook the headphone jack out on my receiver to the input on the iPad. I recorded an album using the app. I used the wifi server built in to share songs to my computer. I had to wait for the mp4 conversion to happen, but it wasn't too long. I threw the songs into audacity and trimmed some empty space off the beginning / end of a couple tracks. I then used the filter "noise removal" on the files. I used the "normalize" filter and finally exported to mp3. All in all, it's a lot of steps, but it's not hard. The final result sounds good for a record from 1982...
Decent app, but needs basic options
This app records well, audio seems good, and it's definitely simple-too simple, in fact. It doesn't have enough options, like renaming song tracks (you have to name each one as you record it, or it will permanently be labeled "track 1", etc). Also, the auto track split NEVER works, so I have to split and name each song manually, which is extremely time-consuming! Why can't they add the option to adjust the gap length and audio level threshold? I guess the app registers the white noise/popping between tracks on the LP as music, so it won't split tracks. Very poor design, considering this app is designed specifically for LPs, which all have some background noise even between songs!
I've used this app, and heres the result
When i got the app, i had to figure a way to connect a usb turntable to my ipad/iphone. I needed a usb adapter that fit the 30 pin dock outlet on the ipad. So i went to the store and got the Apple ipad cam connector. And it worked fine, except that as i was in a vinyl to ipad recording session, i got an ipad crash. At other times a pop up saying not enough space to record, i had 6 gb. On iphone and the touch and ipad mini, wont except the cam connector. Pop up says this accsesory uses too much power. My old ipad has been givin away. And so i have no way of using this app through a connector. Is there one that works with all the new gen ipads phones itouch?!
