Focusrite Ships Free ‘Tape’ Recording App for iPad

| Cool Stuff Found

A few weeks ago, I told you about iTrack Studio from Focusrite, a "studio in a box" package that includes a microphone, an audio input for Mac, iPhone, or iPad, and a set of studio headphones. On Monday Focusrite shipped Tape, a free recording app designed to work with iTrack Studio, though it is iPad-only. Tape uses a reel-to-reel metaphor to allow you to record one or two inputs at a time, or combine them into a stereo recording. While the app is focused on two-track recording, it has several advanced features, such as support for Core Audio-compliant interfaces, low-latency monitoring, mastering effects, a metronome (not advanced, per se, but handy), and support for Soundcloud custom tiles. As noted above, it's free.

This seems to be for iPad only. It’s not showing up in the app store on my 4S.

Hey Flip, it’s iPad-only. I missed that before, but I have edited the article to reflect this. Thanks for the note!
