iRig Recorder 3 LE is a flexible and easy-to-use audio and video recording app for iPhone or iPad. Use its recording, editing and export features to create and share great sounding audio and video while on the go.

iRig Recorder is extremely simple to use: click on the “record” button at the bottom of the screen to immediately start recording. To capture and monitor video, simply click on the camera icon then tap record.

But don’t let the streamlined design fool you… iRig Recorder is a full-fledged, professional audio and video recorder. You can edit audio waveforms, optimize volume automatically, and share your recordings in many different ways. It offers a wide range of creative and professional effects via in-app purchase, but even the free version is a robust tool for capturing and editing on the go.

iRig Recorder is also Inter-App Audio and AudioBus compatible, so you can use other apps like AmpliTube or VocaLive when capturing audio or video, for even more flexibility.

Want to add a reference marker to your audio? No worries! iRig Recorder lets you add photo and text markers that can be applied in real time or in the editing timeline for quick access to important content.

iRig Recorder is the perfect companion to IK Multimedia’s full line of digital microphones and audio interfaces for iPhone and iPad. Use iRig Recorder with an IK microphone or interface and you'll have everything you need to get that Hollywood-style stereo sound — iRig Recorder automatically activates the stereo option whenever a stereo recording interface is connected.

Once you've captured your audio, you can use iRig Recorder’s intuitive editing tools to cut, crop or loop it. You can even do Waveform editing, using 16 studio-quality effects (via in-app purchase) to optimize sound for speech, clean up background noise, increase clarity and presence, change speed without altering the pitch, apply creative effects, fades and a whole lot more.

iRig Recorder organizes your recordings by date and time and also tags them with geolocation for easy and reliable file management. You can now share your audio and video files via Airdrop, Messages, DropBox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, SoundCloud, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, E-mail, Wi-Fi, FTP, SoundCloud or iTunes File Sharing in a variety of sizes and formats.

Problems recording / editing

So when I first got this app it allowed me to edit each recording but since the update, won’t allow you to do so. Why wouldn’t I want to do it all within the app? Well because they want you to pay 15$ for it on top of whatever you paid for their hardware. Also, whenever I record through the app, after an hour it cuts out & repeats the last 3 sec over & over. Not sure if anyone else has this problem but def didn’t happen prior to the update. 2 stars cause it was once 5

Do NOT Update to 3.0

Do NOT update this App. You will lose the good features of 2.0 by going to 3.0! After updating my old library of songs was not accessible with the app. They were still there, but I had to move them to another device to play them. Also had to go into the library through iTunes to delete them. Brilliant! The old version 2.0 allowed me to rename the recordings within the App, that has been removed. When contacted the developer stated that there is no way to go back to the previous version so all the convenience of having a portable, manageable, recording and playback device has been sacrificed to add video capability. They should have built a separate app and left the old one alone. I have suggested that they resurrect to older version and re offer 2.0 it but for now avoid this update. They really F'd it up.

Hardware is great, app is terrible

After spending $120 for the iRig stream I expected more from the app. The fact that WAV export was an in-app purchase stung a little and the app is buggy, after a while the waveform display stops working as you're recording. Basically I record onto my phone then take the file to Audacity and work with it there as that's a real fully featured product for... Free!
