The Earlier Version Was Better

IK Multimedia makes great products, but the iRig recorder has suffered its most recent update(s).

I am a musician and I used the previous version(s) extensively to record ideas, practice, rehearsals and so on, both with the guitar interface and the iPhone’s internal mic. It was wonderful. All the controls were large enough, easy to tap and adjust, and the audio record and playback levels were clear and robust. Perfect for songwriters, as that great idea can disappear while dealing with fiddly controls.

This current version, however, moved the controls into tiny buttons very difficult to tap accurately. The record level setting now takes several taps, and is very weak at best. Every recording requires boosting, which increases noise. I’ve tried to remain faithful for months, but my patience has worn thin and the app must go.

An audio recorder should function just like a camera, with the ability to either choose to point and click, or delve into advanced settings. My suggestion is to rework the interface to that end; make one-click recording and advanced settings into separate, selectable options, and make the buttons larger and more intuitive.

In the meantime I have chosen to save all my recordings, delete the app and switch to Wave Pad, which is somewhat easier to use.

I hope this helps other musicians make an informed choice.

Still good, but indeed was better

This has been my go-to app for voice recording for a few years now, and I have tried just about every other rec app there is.
It's been stable as all hell, which is a huge plus. A while back, they completely changed the 'optimize voice' processor which was an in-app purchase, and ruined it, IMHO. It lost all the gain it had before, an the differentiation between speech and music is lackluster at best. Before it was like, POW! In your face vocals, and now it's just like every other app. I have no way to get back the effect I bought, which is lame. Imagine me coming to your house, taking an effects box I sold you, but replaced it with one i said was better, but u hated it. How long would we remain friends?
Nice app, iRig, but let me know next time you're gonna pull the rug out from under me, so I can jump or something.

Accessibility problem

I am a blind user of the iPhone and use VoiceOver for operation of the device. However the controls in iRig Recorder are not labeled very clearly with VoiceOver. A fix for that would be fantastic. Thank you in advance.
