Customer Reviews


I bought the Rode lavalier mic and downloaded Rode Rec LE to record lectures I give at a small public university. I’m using an iPhone 4S with the most current iOS. The app and the mic worked fine, at first. Then a couple of times I noticed that I only captured 20-40 seconds of my lecture. I tested it… hitting “record” and watching and sure enough after 5-10 seconds it just stopped. I contacted support who asked me many questions but could only offer that I try removing and reinstalling the app. This is really quite unacceptable because I bought the mic and app to work as a package. If the app stops recording (randomly) it’s useless because reliability is essential. I don’t get a 2nd chance to record a live lecture.


After an intense search for a successor of the BlueFire app, I realized its reincarnation is Røde rec - solid as the origin, simple and 90% fitting to my needs... cannot verify the minus-reviews of other users. I ran it on an iphone 4s@7 and On an IPadMini@6... made large test recordings of >1hour. Works.
The last star remains for separate input channel volume control.

The app is one of the few ones which allows for stereo rec via usb! I use it for tape recording digital conversions: perfect! Worth to bye the full version.

One Job To Do...

I don't have or use additional recording hardware on my iPhone 5s.

If you you are only recording a few minutes on each file, the app works fine. It is a little bit annoying that you need to export the recording into another format to transfer.

My main issue is that the app is unable to export a 1.5 hour lecture, every time I try to access it or export the app crashes. I think the only way I can do this is to transfer in realtime via audio cable which is less than ideal. Not the type of quality you would expect from a professional audio company.
