iRig Recorder 3 Audio/Video Recording App for iPhone and iPad

The more that I travel, the more video footage keeps piling up. I love shooting video, but I always seem to end up with unedited hours of material. I’ve been looking for an app that will not only help me put out professional looking video, but is also easy to use. I’m also a singer/songwriter that would love to start recording all the new material that I’ve written over the last 18 months. The iRig Recorder 3 is the app that I have been waiting for.

iRig Recorder 3 Audio/Video Recording App for iPhone and iPad

iRig Recorder 3 is the new version of the popular audio recording app which now supports video recording plus includes a wider collection of pro audio effects, expanded sharing capabilities via a number of online services and social media as well as professional exporting features. iRig Recorder 3 now allows users to finalize superb sounding audio/video recordings directly on their device, share them with the world or export them for further editing.

The pro audio recording app, now with video
While there are many video recording apps available, very few of them focus on an easy way of getting professional sounding audio tracks together with the recorded video. iRig Recorder 3 solves this problem, starting from a powerful audio recording engine and adding video recording capabilities for a truly complete content production solution. With more and more musicians, video-makers, bloggers, journalists, web professionals and enthusiasts willing to share their videos at a higher-than-ever quality, IK Multimedia have focused on giving them everything they need to record serious audio and video at the same time, anywhere. Whether for recording “selfie” videos, live performances, lectures, speeches, interviews and much more, iRig Recorder 3 is aimed at both professionals and enthusiasts who need a tool capable of higher versatility when it comes to creating ready-to-share, high-quality video with great audio directly on their iPhone and iPad.
iRig Recorder 3 supports both portrait and landscape audio and video recording, allowing iPad users to take advantage of the full size of their device’s screen for previewing and capturing higher quality videoclips. Together with IK’s iKlip Grip range of multifunctional camera stands for iPhone, or iKlip Xpand mounts for iPad, iRig Recorder 3 provides a great solution for shooting professional audio/video anywhere, on the go.
New professional audio effects
iRig Recorder 3 now comprises an expandable collection of up to 17 professional effects such as Normalize, Stereo Imager, Compressor and 3-band EQ as well as creative audio effects such as Morph, Reverb, Chorus and Delay. They can be applied to the audio recordings for sound optimization and creative purposes, doubling the number of effects available in the previous version of the app.
Natural fade ins/outs can also be applied to the recording in order to create natural transitions before exporting the final project.
iRig Recorder 3 is ideal for use with IK Multimedia’s full range of portable iRig audio interfaces (both single and dual channel) and microphones for superior audio quality in the studio or on the field, and includes convenient, easy to-use on-screen waveform editing functions.
Works well with other audio apps
For all those musicians who want to record and share their musical performances while playing with their favorite audio apps, iRig Recorder 3 offers complete AudioBus and Inter-App Audio compatibility, which means it can seamlessly receive audio from other IK apps such as AmpliTube, SampleTank, VocaLive, EZ Voice (or other third-party apps like GarageBand), and directly record processed audio together with video for great “selfie-style” videoclips that can be socialized immediately.
Advanced multimedia export
One of the features that make iRig Recorder 3 stand out from the crowd is its ability to export the recorded content in separate files for convenient editing in a DAW or other third-party video editing software. A convenient, professional-oriented feature that is not found in any other audio/video recording app on the market.
Enhanced sharing capabilities
The content created with iRig Recorder 3 can easily be shared via a large selection of online services and social media like Airdrop™, Messages™, SoundCloud®, Twitter®, Facebook®, WhatsApp™, DropBox™, Google Drive™, Microsoft OneDrive™, E-mail, Wi-Fi™, FTP or iTunes™ File Sharing, in a variety of sizes and formats.
Pricing and availability
iRig Recorder 3 is available as a FREE version and as a paid version at a price of only $/€7.99 (includes waveform editing, 8 effects and high-quality wav file export), both offer the option of expanding the effects collection via in-app purchases.

A Phone That is Worthy of Traveling the World

I’ve been to Europe three times in the last year. I love traveling over there. No matter how many times I go, it never stops being as exciting as the first time I went. If I had a complaint, (And I wouldn’t even use that strong of a word… more like small annoyance) it would be the extra cell charges. I want to be able to call my daughter whenever I want and not have to worry about a $500 phone bill. Most unlocked phones can cost a ton of money and might not have all the tech that I want. I need a phone that has a lot of memory, all the latest features and is affordable. I need a phone that is worthy of traveling the world.

Try an Unlocked Phone for the Holidays

In December, my wife and I are going to Europe for our 10th anniversary. We’re doing one of those fancy river cruises from Switzerland to Amsterdam. We love going to Europe, but we HATE paying international phone charges. Our daughter is staying in the states and we want to be able to talk to her whenever we want and vice versa. The solution to our problem is going to be an unlocked phone. So, since we are traveling so close to Christmas, I told my wife that I want to try an unlocked phone for the holidays.

Unlocked phone at Best Buy

What’s an unlocked phone?

An unlocked phone is a smartphone that is in no way tied to one specific carrier or contract. What that means is that you have the freedom to shop for all of the latest phones and plans as often as you want. Or, like me, you can buy one to just have for traveling purposes. When it comes to international travel, unlocked phones are the only way to go. Unlocked phones are becoming more and more popular here in the U.S. Why? Because of the freedom when it comes to a choice of models, carriers and plans. Click here to learn more.
