Reforge for iPad is the Swiss army knife for audio files on iPad. Edit the wave form directly just by touching it. Set selections to cut, copy and paste within files or even paste from another file. Set the selection to trim unwanted parts of your audio off.
Record right in the app. Zoom-in down to sample level.
Automate volume changes for fade in effects or remove unwanted clicks. Adjust stereo balance and set it to the far left channel for the beginning of the track continuously transferring over to the right channel for the end. Add stereo widening effects or bring it all to together to make is sound mono. Add high pass and low pass effects to start an intro, simulate a telephone conversation or just enhance your sound.
Use control markers to automate the effect levels. Add as many markers as you need by double tapping on the waveform. Move them around to generate the changes to the effect you need.
*** To improve your experience with the control markers, touch and hold the marker for about 0.5 seconds before dragging it. This will ensure you are not scrolling the wave form but actually moving the marker. ***

Ratings and Reviews
Should be great...but disappointing
I got this because I need a dedicated waveform editor for my music. I'm a recording artist using only the iPad and various apps for everything. So little things like clicks and pops are a constant headache. I expected this to resolve that. I made a 15 second stereo synthesizer recording, and it was easy to bring in to Reforge. It was really easy to make any adjustment and understand its effect. Cool. But ultimately even after processing the altered waveform, there are noticeable clicks at the start stop points of my selected Reforge function. What's worse is that it will NOT remove clicks at all. It adds clicks. it's especially bad at the end of a file where it loops..POP! That is not good. I have a lot of experience with this sort of this, but still I really hope it's user error.
I hate this app!!
I am sick and tired of reading features of apps in the app that are in the app store then having to spend money on them justbto down load them and find out that they dont work. That is this app and its description in the app store. The app store description says you can import long audio clips.
I spent the 6 dollars downloaded the app and guess what like so many other apps there is no user guide no help nothing. Not only that I pressed every button on the screen and there is no import audio clip option. When i try to find a help menu none exist.
Heres a tip for developers of apps. Put a help menu in your apps it helps those of us that are using them for the first time. Especially when you charge for them it just good practice to add help menu. Now i just wasted another 6 bucks on a app i cant use
The iOS musician is in desperate need of a functional go-between to pass or edit audio between apps. This particular "swiss army knife" sports missing, bent and broken blades, but it will work in a pinch, seeing as it's the only game in town.
The good: you can open, trim, adjust the volume and export your sample. It works with audiocopy and paste.
The bad: the interface is cryptic, and functionality is stifled. Even the simple task of boosting volume is obfuscated. Every "write" function auto-names the file with long, date-based numerical garbage ...and fails to include file type data, rendering it unopenable. If you're hoping to email your clip to a non-audiocopy compliant app (e.g. Multitrack DAW) you can't.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
