Do NOT Update to 3.0


Do NOT update this App. You will lose the good features of 2.0 by going to 3.0! After updating my old library of songs was not accessible with the app. They were still there, but I had to move them to another device to play them. Also had to go into the library through iTunes to delete them. Brilliant! The old version 2.0 allowed me to rename the recordings within the App, that has been removed. When contacted the developer stated that there is no way to go back to the previous version so all the convenience of having a portable, manageable, recording and playback device has been sacrificed to add video capability. They should have built a separate app and left the old one alone. I have suggested that they resurrect to older version and re offer 2.0 it but for now avoid this update. They really F'd it up.

Works well with iRig Mic Field & Zoom H6 with CCK. Most recording apps cannot record these items in stereo, even paid ones such as iRig Acoustic, Studio Mini, or Jam Up Pro. I bought the wav add-on because this app is serious enough to export hi-res audio & HD video, even for gigs as a backup or second source.



Downloaded this app to record for my business after reading about it online. Long story short the app continues to crash and won't let me access my recording. All information was lost. Complete SCAM of an app. Would give it negative stars if I could and plan on reporting it to iTunes as a scam app. Don't waste your time!
