Hindenburg Field Recorder is made with radio production in mind. It will work equally well for anyone conducting interviews for podcasts or research.

It’s all about the story.....

Create your interview in three simple steps:

Step 1: Record interview and set markers at points of interest

This is an ideal field recorder

This is an ideal field recorder. Foolproof recording, and surprisingly robust editing functionality. Direct integration with the desktop app make this a no-brainer.
I wish all apps had this great functional design and power.

(Come on, someone had to say it.)

Hindenburg Field Recorder is what I would consider a perfect app---IF you need what's known in the industry as a "field recorder." See? It's right there in the title of the app: Hindenburg FIELD RECORDER. If you don't know what that is, or if you're trying to edit your latest dubstep download from Pirate Bay (or wherever these young whippersnappers are downloading their sick beats from), then . . . move along. Nothing to see here.

But if you're in need of a kick-a** way to record flawless audio in a streamlined manner with an awesome U/I, and the ability to edit the audio ex post facto (that means "after the fact," by the way), and you have the need for crossfades and all sorts of nifty cool stuff like compression and limiting, then you will not find a better app.

Ever heard the expression: You get what yo pay for?

Some say the expression is merely a cliché, but it's a cliché because it's frickin' true in 90%+ cases. Hindenburg Field Recorder costs $30 because no other audio recording app can touch what it does.

Don't believe me? Download the free version first and check it out. Originally, I downloaded the free version, and within 5 minutes of using it I shelled out $30 for the paid version; I was *that* impressed with it.

That's just my opinion, but I'm sticking to it.

Now buy the app before the zeppelin explodes!

No integration with Journalist

One of the reasons I got this was that it is supposed to work with Journalist Pro. There is not an easy and straightforward means to import directly into Journalist. The import an iOS feature in Journalist does not even work.
