Audiofile Engineering first to bring professional recording features to the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Audiofile Engineering, a leading audio software developer for the Mac, announces the world's first professional field recorder built exclusively for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

Created for audio professionals by audio professionals, FiRe brings several firsts to the iPhone platform. Audio pros can now use this mobile platform for serious field recording with an accurate real-time waveform display, audio markers, support for professional Broadcast WAVE metadata, and the instant downloading of audio files in multiple formats.

"We created FiRe to give audio professionals the tools they need without having to invest in and carry a second, dedicated device," said Matthew Foust of Audiofile Engineering. "The iPhone and iPod Touch provide an amazingly powerful platform for FiRe and will allow us to continue to develop it. This gives audio pros a great portable recorder that will never be obsolete."

Designed to revolutionize expectations for portable field recorders, FiRe supports stereo recording with external microphones such as the Blue Mikey* and Alesis ProTrack*. If the internal mic is used for mono recordings, the screen rotates 180 degrees allowing users to best position the device for optimum directional pick-up. Users can scroll the live waveform display with the touch of a finger or navigate it with a system of configurable double-taps.

FiRe includes professional and accurate VU meters for input and output signals, a moveable playback head, configurable time units, the ability to tag recordings with location data, and an overdub mode for layering tracks. FiRe is also the first recorder of any kind to offer native SoundCloud integration, making it simple to upload recordings directly to the web and share them with the tap of a button.

FiRe is now available on the Apple App Store for $5.99.

Hardware Requirements:

  • iPhone 3G
  • iPod Touch (second generation)
  • First Generation iPhone (headset only)

FiRe does not support sample rates lower than 11.025 kHz. Thus, recording and playback will only work a headset on a first generation iPhone.
