Best app of it's kind!


This really is the best app for podcasting, or several other kinds of quick audio assembly work. It's got so many features, it's crazy. I found myself using it for things I never expected to. I am an audio engineer and musician, and am used to working with some pretty cool gear. However, there are times when I will just plug my phone in, turn it all the way up, and use this app to play clips and prerecorded segments. Really, if you do any kind of audio work with mobile equipment, you need to have this app.
The only reason I haven't given it five stars, is because of two things I think it should do and it doesn't:
1. You cannot trim the beginning and ends of recordings made in the app. You have to use an outside app to do that, then reimport them, if you have some reason to do it such as removing preshow conversation from an MP3 final. Something simple, like the iOS camera video editing interface, would be sufficient.
2. Every once in a while, it will record absolute silence for no apparent reason. the only solution I know of to make sure this doesn't happen, is to close the app every time you make any kind of audio change, such as plugging-in a new audio device or microphone, or recording a different file or file type.

Best podcasting software out there


Bossjock is THE best podcasting software!! Bar none!. I have used it to make many podcasts. The only thing I hope they would put in there would be an automatic record option. I generally put my podcasts together by filling up each cart with what I want (music, interviews, voiceovers, etc..) then when you go to record you have to press each cart to play it. I wish they would have a feature were it would play each cart in sequence autmomatically while you are recording. That way you can press a button and walk away while it is putting your podcast together. the way it is now, you have to press each cart while you are recording. Some of my podcasts can be 30minutes long. It would be neat if I did not have to sit there and monitor the recording. It would be nice just to have it automatically process all the carts and produce a mp3 automatically for you.

Love this app!!!


I purchased this app for my podcast and absolutely love it. It allows me to produce it like a live radio show, which I much prefer to cramming it all together after the fact. The hot keys and auto mute for the mic make everything so easy and help me put together the best show I can.

What I didn’t expect is how much it would help me in other areas. I DJ a lot of weddings and parties and when I need a lot of pre-produced songs ready at once, the hot key function on this app is awesome. I had a wedding where every person had a different intro song, and this app was a life-saver. I couldn’t recommend it more.
