What’s New

Version 1.10.1

In the latest version of Dolby On for iOS we're bringing you even more ways to customize and create! Top billing feature includes:

We're now supporting low power mode so you can get the most from Dolby On without your phone going into overdrive.

You now have the option to remove audio visualizations from your tracks.

When recording in Lossless, a badge will now appear letting you know it's on AND you'll see a Lossless badge on your track in the library.

Having trouble finding what you need in the library? Enjoy the updated filters!

We added a "swipe to go back" gesture in Settings.

Please note that Dolby On will no longer allow livestreaming to Groups on Facebook.

Stunning results

This is a fantastic app. I've made several recordings including vocals, guitars, drums, and the clarity of each is very impressive. With the ability to tweak the sound afterwards with simple to use yet very professional sounding options, and the option to share recordings directly to Facebook etc, this app genuinely ticks every box. And the fact I'm blind and use the VoiceOver screen reader and its completely accessible is the cherry on the icing. Top marks and kudos to the team at Dolby for this little gem!

Lossless audio and other useful features

Appreciating the option for lossless audio on video; haven't seen this useful feature elsewhere. Also useful is the 3 second countdown before recording. A few well-chosen features are easy to switch on and off with well-placed buttons. Slight gripe regarding portrait/landscape getting stuck, on iPhone SE (2015) but on my first day using the app, I am grateful for good features, working immediately, and for free, so 5 stars.

The sound quality is noticeably different

In these Pandemic times when everything is video I found my recordings crisper and easier to hear on Adobe. Especially when I recorded myself singing. So much better sound quality than any other recorder I’ve used on my smartphone.
