FiRe 2 - Field Recorder
Our industry leading professional field recorder for iOS just got completely redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up. Although widely recognized by audio professionals as "best in class" we decided to skip the tweaks and create a next generation product incorporating many of the features our users have requested since FiRe's initial release.
FiRe 2 will again revolutionize what you expect from a portable recording application. FiRe was the first iPhone recorder to display an accurate audio waveform in real time, the first to support markers, Broadcast WAVE metadata, and the instant downloading of files in multiple file formats. FiRe was the first application on any platform to offer native SoundCloud integration. Now FiRe 2 incorporates into its original elegant design a stunning list of powerful new features including:
- - Advanced editing suite with SmartEdits, Bezier fades, change gain, normalize, looping playback, regions and more
- - Improved Transport screen with faster and smoother drawing and larger waveform view
- - EQ and Dynamics effects by Audiofile Engineering
- - iTunes File Sharing
- - Enhanced input processing powered by iZotope™
- - Record in background
- - Dropbox integration
- - Regions
FiRe 2 features a powerful editing suite. By simply rotating your iOS device to landscape view you can edit with cut, copy, paste, delete, crop and remove. Further editing features including applying Bezier fades, change gain, normalize, remove DC offset, and loop playback.
Start recording right away in FiRe, and worry about your file format later. When the time comes to share your recordings, you can choose AIFF, WAVE, CAF, AAC, Apple Lossless, Podcast, Ogg Vorbis, and FLAC, and with a few taps send them to your computer via iTunes File Sharing.
FiRe was the first application on any platform to offer native SoundCloud integration. Record and publish to your SoundCloud account in just a few taps!
FiRe now features the most widely used file sharing service on the web - Dropbox! With just a few taps your recordings are uploaded to your account.
Powered by iZotope™
FiRe 2 features unique input processing presets developed by iZotope. Use a variety of EQ and compression to capture just the sound you're looking for! With FiRe's playthrough feature you can monitor the audio before recording to make sure you've selected the preset you're looking for. New iZotope input processing presets in FiRe 2 include Dictation, Interview, Lecture, and Office Mode.
