Ratings and Reviews
Best audio editing app I've seen in a while.
This is the best audio editing app I have found out there on the App Store. It is also one of the very few audio editing apps that work with voiceover. What I think would be cool though, is that when you are recording a new track, you can listen to your audio from another project. This way, I could have background music going, and when I can hear that his song is about to end, I could finish up what I am saying and finish the recording at the appropriate time, rather than the Recorder track being too short or too long. I also like how you can just the time more precisely and zoom in and out, I was able to make music loops from songs that I created with my windows PC
I was really enjoying using the pro version of this app until I discovered there is no way to export edited files in anything other than 16 bits. The internal format is 32 bit but there is no way to access it. Had I known this, I would never had purchased it. I can no longer use all of its great features knowing I cannot export my work in a professional audio format. This is unacceptable. Despite all its great editing features, Ferrite is simply not a professional editing app. Please add 32 or 24 bit export of edited files in a future update.
Reply: I edit audio (all kinds) professionally and I thought I had found the perfect audio companion to my iPad Pro. I would like to be able to edit in Ferrite and master the finished edited project in my mastering suite, but your refusal to implement high quality export of edited audio makes that impossible. I also find it preposterous that you would not implement a function that would, in effect, make your product perfect. It is so close. Why not go that extra little bit and make the internal format of edited audio exportable? Your refusal to do so is truly baffling.
Developer Response ,
Hello! If you have 24- or 32-bit audio stored in Ferrite, you can export it using the "Original File" option, which will export it in its original 24-/32-bit format. Those higher bit depths can be important during editing, because they can provide "room" to do certain kinds of editing without loss of quality — that's why Ferrite does support 24- and 32-bit source audio, and uses 32-bits for its audio engine, to maintain the highest quality during editing. But when you export a finished podcast, radio programme, audiobook, lecture etc, it's output as a 16-bit file, which is the industry standard for those types of production. You mentioned you're wanting to use Ferrite for music editing? If folks find it useful for that, that's great, but it's not what the app's designed for — as it says above, Ferrite is designed for podcasting, radio journalism and other spoken-word audio. It sounds like your needs would be better met by one of the many excellent music-focused editing apps that can be found in the App Store. All the best with your music production!
Astonishingly good podcast editor
There are so many aspects of my podcast editing workflow (usually done in Logic Pro X) that I thought would never be able to be done on an iOS device. This app has it all. I can easily strip silence, it has a quick triple tap for select all following, it can ripple delete and insert, it can add chapters... The list goes on and on. In some ways I prefer it to Logic since I can relax on the couch with a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones instead of sitting at my desk. Getting audio onto the iPad is obviously a little trickier than it is with a computer (I load everything onto iCloud Drive, then import to Ferrite, which takes several minutes even for short episodes) but once it’s in Ferrite editing becomes pretty effortless.
