Customer Reviews

App cripples excellent mic

After returning my first, defective iXY mic, I was happy to be able to do stereo recordings on the move without having to haul around a separate recorder like a Zoom. (And the included mics on those recorders are not as good as the iXY). Imagine how disappointed I was to find out that NONE of the file transfer methods provided by the software work, I have an older iPhone 4 which I had hoped to hang onto and keep as my dedicated portable recorder when I upgrade to my next iPhone, but … FTP transfers time out with larger files, the so-called "file sharing" option provides an IP address that just returns an error message when I try to access it with my MacBook Pro, and I don't have an email account associated with my phone (deliberately -- I don't want to have email with me all day everywhere I go!). So now my recordings are stuck on the phone. I'm looking for substitute software that can transfer the files. What a piece of crap.

App makes Rode iXY mic unusable

Using iPhone 6 and the Rode iXY mic, the app takes forever to do anything - if it doesn’t crash first. It takes about 8 sec to get from selecting a recording to be able to even record. Once you hit the record button, it takes about 10 sec to start recording. Then when you stop, it takes about 8 seconds to let you record again. I can’t think of a situation where this wouldn’t be infuriating and a complete waste of time. I should have checked the reviews before buying this app.
Without the iXY mic tho, the program seems to work just fine, no extended delayed responses – except that the iPhone’s built-in mic is leagues beneath the quality of the Rode mic.

does not work with smartlav+

I'm really sad and disappointed I purchased a smartlav+ and this app in the hopes of getting better audio on some of my videos...

Unfortunately many times while recording with the rode Rec and the Smartlav+, the mic would activate Siri (or voice command of Siri is disabled) and stop recording with. I warning what so ever.

This was very frustrating since 99% of the time it meant starting over at the end of long takes after realizing no sound was recorded...

If I talked for 20 minutes it could literally freeze and fail a minute in, making the next 19 minutes a waist of time...

Unfortunately there is just no way to trust this combination. I and would highly suggest that people stay away from both...

I really feel like I got ripped off on both ends, the smartlav doesn't have very good sound quality to begin with, but the rode rec app is supposed to help over come some of its limitations...

Unfortunately this voice/siri activation bug is a total show stopper
