Tape It is a recording app for musicians and songwriters. It is packed with smart features that put you back in control of your recordings:

• Start a recording straight from your lock screen.

• Record in stereo for vastly superior audio quality by combining several of your iPhones built-in microphones. Just try it - you’ll be amazed how good phone recordings can sound.

• Record with lossless quality. Perfect for field recordings and additional dialog recordings in film.

• Automatic instrument detection and smart waveforms. Now you can see what a recording contains before you even listen to it.

• Organise your recordings in mixtapes to get on top of your chaos.

• Mark your favorite recordings, and even mark special moments while you record or while you’re listening.

• Collaborate in mixtapes with your band mates, your producer, and your manager. Say goodbye to a chaos of files in shared folders and email attachments.

• Enjoy the beautiful Time Paragraph for long recordings. Tape It makes skimming a whole songwriting session completely natural.

• Full media center integration. Listen in your car on your commute, or use your workout time to review your ideas.

• Sync between devices, and sleep tight knowing that everything is backed up in the cloud - encrypted, in the EU.

Handy app for recording ideas

Excellent app for recording quick ideas. So far it’s been more reliable than music memos was. I haven’t found any apps better for the purpose of quickly recording a sketch, especially now that you can use it with an external mic. They’ve also improved the app quite a bit since I first downloaded.

Thank you so much for your review! I’m glad you like it. We’ll continue to improve it while keeping the simplicity :).

Wonderful and simple

It’s a wonderful app, and makes me feel much less weird about Music Memos being discontinued. Good, simple and easy to use. The things that pop out though is that the instrument detection seems iffy. I’m taking notes with an acoustic guitar and it hasn’t understood that’s what I’m playing. Which makes me think that I’d much rather just set it myself if I could. Also, the things that jump out are that I wish I could trim recordings, and also it’d be nice to be able to organize clips into groups so if you had a number of different ideas for one project you could have a group to just hear/see all those, for instance. Other than that I think it’s quite nice so far.

Hi candlesayshi,

Thank you so much for your honest review. We're working on improving the instrument detection, but you'll soon also be able to set the instrument yourself. Trimming is quite high on our list, too, and I think you'll be excited to hear that we are already working on groups and will bring out an update, soon. It's great to hear that those are the features that you are looking for, too.

Good app but needs a few added features

I’ve seen in the previous review the developers are working on adding a trim feature, grouping or folders, and better instrument detection. This is currently a pretty basic recording app but after the new updates it could be a five star app. I do like that you can easily add markers to your recordings. Ideally I would love to be able to take a long recording and break it into multiple shorter separate clips. Sometimes I want to record an entire session and then divide it into parts.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review - it's always good to hear it, even if you repeat things others may have already written. It gives us a good idea of what to focus on. Grouping/folders will come very soon (we call our folders Mixtapes, and they're more like playlists, so you can have your recording in more than one Mixtape). Trim feature is also on our roadmap, and should land relatively soon. Breaking a long recording into separate recordings has been on our list almost since day one, but we're still a bit unsure how to implement it. Should these break-outs retain a link to their original recording, or are they displayed like any other recording? It also gets really important once we add better sharing; we know that people often only want to share a section of a recording, not the entire one. All this to say that breaking up long recordings into shorter ones will come, but we're still a bit unsure about its design, so it will take a little while.
