Good app, not far from being perfect

This is a very nice app with great control over the mic (I have an MV88). I like the way settings are stored, the different patterns and stereo width along with DSP compression and limiting is great. One thing I'd like in addition is a very basic wave editor for the recorded clips where you can see the waveform and do some basic e.q. processing, clipping start and end points etc and also normalising. That would make the app perfect and while the e.q. Is very good you don't always want to add pre recording. But still a very good app and great mic.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! We actually have implemented some changes that address a couple of your suggestions. The option to trim and split recording was added in Version 2.0. We hope that these updates have made your experience with the app even better. We will make sure to pass your other suggestions along to the engineering team.

Perfect form & function

Apps designed to go with specific pieces of equipment are often a weak point. Not this time. This app does everything you would expect it to do, in the way you would expect to do it. It does not distract from the main task of sound recording, which is to get the content, performance, and acoustics right.
That said, I have not used many advanced features, since my workflow is: record using Motiv on iPod Touch, AirDrop to the Mac, and edit with Audacity there.

I bought my MV88 specifically to record live bands. The VU meters in this app clearly indicate that it is not clipping yet the recording sounds clipped. I have yet to manage to get a live recording of a band that sounds better than the iPhone built-in mic. For medium to low volume sounds it works well, but otherwise I am dissatisfied.

And why is there no facility to save named user presets?

Sorry to hear that you're experiencing issues recording. If the source is extremely loud, we recommend using flat mode with the gain at 0db. Please feel free to contact our team at if you'd like further help troubleshooting.
