Audio recorder for iPhone
Berkley Integrated Audio Software (BIAS) has launched the iPro Recorder for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new app records voice memos, lectures, sermons, legal briefings, field interviews, business meetings/dictation, ambient sounds, music, and more, with three levels of quality from CD fidelity to dictation quality levels. The software records in 16-bit mono from 44KHz to 11KHZ, in .WAV format, (up to 13 hours of audio per gigabyte) offering cross platform compatibility with Macs and PCs. It provides one-touch recording, pause and resume and appending of previous recordings with new audio. It has an option to send a call on the iPhone straight to voicemail, or can pause and resume after the call.
The new app's GUI features a rotating display for times when the iPhone is held upside down to point the microphone at a sound source, and has playback meters, a volume slider and volume boost. It features a jog/shuttle dial for quick location of a specific point in a recording and can play back at 1.5x faster or .75x slower and offers pitch control.
iPro Recorder can organize sound files in categories and offers search base on keywords and filenames. The app can attach pictures to soundfiles to give a visual marker to recordings and will be able (in an update to come) to send files to a users computer via web sharing.
The new app is available now at the iTunes App Store for a limited time price of $1. It requires a iPhone or an second-generation iPod touch.
