About iRig Recorder

iRig Recorder is a simple to use audio recording app that can start recording immediately when it is launched making it the perfect “on the spot” field recorder. Users simply launch the app and hit the record button, or can also configure the app to start recording audio immediately upon launch. The app automatically groups recordings by date, tags them with geographic location information (if your device location services are enabled), and saves the original file as a backup. Recording time is limited only by the available memory on the device. iRig Recorder can be used with the built-in device microphone, or with IK’s iRig Mic handheld microphone, iRig Mic Cast compact device microphone, or iRig PRE professional studio XLR microphone preamp, all designed for capturing broadcast quality audio on the go.

Editing in iRig Recorder

In the full version of iRig Recorder for Android, recording is only part of the story. It provides a precise waveform editor, which allows for selecting, cutting, copying, pasting and cropping of the audio content. Automatic onboard audio processing options can optimize recording levels and tone, remove background noise and increase the overall audio quality so that anybody can produce professional quality audio on the go.

The app can also speed up or slow down a recording without changing the timbre. With its onboard processing and editing features, it’s possible to produce podcasts or other types of programming, all without leaving the app.

Multi-format Export Options

Finished recordings can be easily shared by e-mail and FTP, over Bluetooth, through USB cables or via apps installed on the device. Files can be exported as CD-quality WAV files, or as compressed .ogg files, ranging from 64 to 192 kbps.
