Patchrat is the future of session recall

My engineer buddies are pretty amazed when it comes time to recall a session and I break out Patchrat. Not only does it retain the accuracy of every dial-in in far more detail than I ever could by hand, but it looks absolutely astonishing. With new gear interfaces coming out seemingly every few weeks, this app gets better and better.

I personally was a little slow and oblivious to certain functionality as a new user, so make sure to hit the help buttons to see exactly how everything works in the app. Once you’re in, you’re in and honestly you’ll never go back to recall sheets and scrawlings.

Lastly, from the short dialogues I’ve had with the creator of Patchrat, I can tell you that they are incredibly responsive, open and truly care about their user base and functionality. I’ve gotten locked into a lot of apps where there is no user support whatsoever, and this is not one of them. They’re truly passionate about who is using the app and what they are getting out of it.

Get it !!!

Inefficient and incomplete

I heard some buzz and was pretty excited about checking out this app as an alternative to paper recall sheets or just taking photos. Come to find out about half my gear was available in their library and some of the units were incomplete (dials couldn’t be set). Why even offer a “template” that is unusable? I clicked on the “help” button and it took me to a “Lorem Ipsom” page... that’s what developers use as a placeholder for actual text that hasn’t been inserted yet. This app is clearly still under development. What’s more, pinching and dragging on my phone to get to the buttons and knobs on my device templates is even more difficult than dialing in the actual devices, so you’re doing more than double the work to document. If you already have a smartphone, just take a photo an move on. Cool idea, poor execution, certainly NOT a time saver or worth a cent as a paid app or subscription purchase.

The best Hardware Recall app in the universe

I can’t stress enough how Amazing this app is.
It’s truly a game changer. The customer service is amazing & they get back to you literally in minutes with solutions.
I recommend this app for all mixing & mastering engineers.
