New Version of Røde Reporter is Slow on iOS 14

The previous version of Røde Reporter worked well with my iPhone 8 Plus running on iOS 14. My only major complaint was that scrubbing through minutes-long recordings (20+ minute sessions) for voiceovers caused the playback to stop and freeze the app until I quit and restart Reporter.

If I had known that the responsiveness of the newer versions of Røde Reporter was slower than the previous version in terms of the audio level meter, and having my previous recordings disappear, I would've waited until Røde fixed the app before updating. Now there's no way I can roll back the app to the previous version, and I need this app for voiceover work. Either fix this app or allow us to roll back to a prior version of the app that wasn't as sluggish as this.

Good, but room for improvement

Leaps and bounds better for quick run and gun recordings over the Rode Rec app. Quick to load and begin recording. UI is modern and well laid out. Native iOS share menu is great for transferring recordings. However, it’d be nice if the app remembered my previous recording settings using the iXY with an iPhone 8 (Input Gain, HPF, Sample and Bit Rate), as it’s just one more step that prevents you from recording quickly. The app also doesn’t seem to prevent screen auto-lock, regardless of the toggle state in settings. Looking forward to future updates with some improvements, and will likely continue to use for now for quick field recording.

Dear Røde

Please add an option to record the stereo file with the left and right channel hardpanned to left and right using regular TRS 3.5mm, would be great for all the iOS musicians. I’m recording a single stereo file using two TRS 3.5mm going into the sc6-l. But I can’t hear the actual stereo, both inputs are centered or plain weird, even tried with mono tr 3.5mm. I’ll add even a 6th star if you can make this happen. I do know that it can record two separate files, but that’s not what I’m after (it was supposed to record both stereo audio music as well as do the same while filming using the iPhone).
