Digital audio recording company Apogee Electronics has introduced MetaRecorder, a two-channel audio recording App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that, Apogee says, will “revolutionize mobile audio production” for video.
Apogee’s MetaRecorder is the first audio recording app for iPhone to offer intuitive multi-take recording, tagging and file organization for any field recording scenario. Designed as a working companion to Sennheiser’s digital clip-on microphones (powered by Apogee), MetaRecorder features 24 bit/96kHz recording quality, plus software control of input level and recording presets.
Essential features of MetaRecorder on iPhone can also be controlled from the Apple Watch: start and stop recording, “favorite” a take, add markers, or set your microphone input level. Continue reading →
Sonoma Wireworks has announced that their GuitarJack Model 2 audio interface for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is compatible with Apple’s new iPhone 5, new iPod touch, iPad mini, and fourth generation iPad, which all use Apple’s new Lightning-to-30-pin adapter cable.
GuitarJack connects a wide range of instruments, microphones, and other audio hardware to iOS devices via 1/4 inch instrument and 1/8 inch stereo mic/line inputs and an 1/8 inch stereo/line output. GuitarJack includes input level control with 60 dB of gain plus 12 dB pad for 72 dB of adjustment, configurable Lo-Z and Hi-Z modes, and more. GuitarJack Model 2 works with Sonoma’s iOS apps, which are compatible with iOS 6, as well as third party apps like GarageBand.
“MIDIConnect offers musicians a compact and portable solution to create and edit music on the go, at a fraction of the cost of a recording studio,” said Ethan Opelt, Line Manager of Griffin’s Audio category. “We are excited to be showcasing MIDIConnect… at Summer NAMM in Nashville, our home town.”
MIDIConnect adds a MIDI input and output to iOS devices, and allows the user to plug MIDI keyboards and other MIDI-capable devices into an iPad, iPod touch or iPhone. The user can play MIDI instruments straight into MIDI-capable applications like GarageBand. MIDIConnect users can also download MIDI controller apps to make use of the MIDI out port and the iOS devices’ touchscreens as a MIDI controller.
Both MIDI in and out ports are industry-standard 5-pin DIN connectors, compatible with most commonly available MIDI cables and connectors.
