Great Tip: For those of you who use Voices.com, you can use iAudition to record your audition from anywhere! When you're done recording, simply email the audition to yourself; once you get back to your computer, simply upload the file when auditioning online.
* Please Note: Some services have a limited on email size. The average MP3 file size is around 1MB per minute; so make sure that your file is not larger than what is allowed, or your email may be rejected.
* When sending files longer than 2 minutes, we recommend using a WiFi network; sending files will work using 3G, but will go much faster with WiFi.
* For best results, we recommend keeping audio files under 15 minutes in length.
* iPod Touch models 3G and earlier require an external microphone for use.
** Audio Files will be sent as MP3s only when emailed or uploaded to FTP servers.

Needs a lot of work
I bought this app because I needed the ability to record decent quality mp3s. Most of the recording apps out there either are for speech (low quality) or else record in lossless formats that take up an amount of space utterly unjustified by the iPhone's mic. iAudition allows me to record mp3s of rehearsals in good quality but at mp3 compression ratios.
Although I appreciate that it can do this, iAudition is really quite a disaster. Problems:
-It does not allow wifi transfers, necessitating the use of email for large files for all those without convenient access to some sort of FTP service. Wifi transfer capability is essential, and I personally would very much like to see dropbox integration as well.
-the editing feature, as far a I can tell, simply doesn't work
-it is slow and crashes frequently. On one occasion it even decided it would shut off my phone all by itself and delete the recording it had just made.
iAudition has potential, but is not, at present, worth the money.
It's great until you miss an audition because it doesn't work
I've been a fan of the app for about a year now. I even booked a gig from it. It was great when I was traveling or working another job and needed to get something to my agent quickly.
This week though it just stopped working. I had an audition stuck on "preparing" for too long and it timed out. I tried re saving/re titling my file and even re recording it but nothing worked.
What's worse is that I tried contacting the company both through the app and their website to two different addresses to see if they could help me troubleshoot and both attempts bounced back as undeliverable. I'm mostly disappointed in the customer Svc since the app worked well up until this glitch.
Luckily my agent was able to wait until I could get home to post the audition from my home studio, but now I need to start looking for a new app before it's too late.
Superb - When it Works
I have used this a lot over the past year or so. Initially I had one gripe. I'd press record and nothing would happen. Press again, then it starts. That problem remains 90% of the time. No biggie.
Now I find that the export to email as MP3 - the sole reason I bought this app - is getting stuck midway through. The little loading/processing bar just stops and stays there for 5min or more. Necessitating quitting the app and starting over. Sometimes it gets all the way through, but most of the time it just freezes. I'm a VO actor and this, paired with my Apogee mic, is the tool to fire off ASAP auditions when I'm on the road. Now it's just dumped me by the side of the road. It's a great app with its editing and export feature. Please please please fix!
