Ratings and Reviews
Doesn’t do what I need, due to copy write
Wanted this to slow songs down and analyse them for learning to play them on my guitar! Every song from my library won’t upload due to them being protected!
I understand it to an extent, but is useless for anyone else trying to do the same thing.
Developer Response ,
Hello! I understand your frustration, but unfortunately this isn't something we can help with — if the songs in your Apple Music Library are Copy Protected, we're not allowed to import them. It's against Apple rules and (in some places) may be against the law. Hokusai can import non-Copy Protected songs from your Music Library and many other places such as iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, or by copying songs into the app, but we can't help you break Copy Protection.
I have been a working voice actor for about six years now. In that time I have created numerous home studios with expensive processors, computers, microphones and acoustic treatment.
One thing I have always found to be near impossible is to put together a portable at a reasonable price. I’ve used my old Zoom H2 and a laptop at times and the results have been good but the laptop has always been a pain in the neck to cart about.
I’ve had Hokusai for a year or two and it was clear from the start that there was potential to use this app to make money from my voice no matter where I was in the world. The limitations though were that the iPads I had previously were difficult to connect to microphone and didn’t really have the grunt to cope with the intensive audio editing required in my work.
All this changed with the iPad Pro 2017. Now I can hook up my H2 via the usb 3 connection kit and it will record directly into Hokusai. The sound quality is good enough for professional purposes.
The processing power of the iPad Pro turns Hokusai into as good a tool as the Adobe Audition software I use at home and the cherry on the cake is IOS 11 which allows me to deliver, store and archive the audio I record and edit with Hokusai.
The effects such as noise removal are superb. I would go so far as to say better than Adobe.
If you are looking for the best in IOS audio recording and editing, don’t waste your time elsewhere, Hokusai is everything you need and more.
I haven’t time for a huge review today, which is a shame, because this app warrants lots of praise.
I have paid, gladly, for the full version and I have found its completeness and user friendliness to be outstanding.
I had a couple of troubles and was disappointed to find poor online guidance (on my problem - the online tutorials / help is excellent) so emailed the developer.
I have never ... not ever ... had such a responsive and helpful developer. Truly exceptional app and follow-on customer service.
Bloody well done.
