If you’ve been a fan of nibletz.com or Thedroidguy.com for long than you know that I’ve been a “dj” all of my life. With that I love portable devices that assist in recording, jamming, playing and remixing. Monster’s Go DJ, and Roli’s Seaboard and Lightpad Blocks travel with me everywhere I go. I can have an instant jam session in a hotel room, on a plane, on a train, just about anywhere. But I’ve never had a way to record that’s truly convenient, portable and doesn’t sacrifice quality.
The folks at Izotope have created Spire an all in one, one touch, professional quality recording studio. The device features a professional quality microphone that records crisp and clear. It also has line ins for electric guitars, external microphones and other instruments.
The accompanying app allows for easy multi-track recording, editing, overdubbing and much more. The app also allows musicians to collaborate with one another, without being in the same place. Using the Spire app a guitar player in Montana can add to the tracks of a vocalist in New York, a bass guitar player in LA and a drummer in Idaho. The app makes this possible, and easy.
The Spire is ready to record out of the box. It gives musicians 4 hours of recording time on a single charge and even has a visual display showing which tracks are in use and which ones aren’t. Recording is a breeze with a big record button found at the top of the Spire device alongside an equally as large play button.
Spire is small enough to throw in your gig bag everyday so if you get into the ultimate jam session you’ll be able to record in minutes. Spire plays nice with other editing software and digital audio workstations (DAWs). That means you can export your Spire tracks and work on them in just about any software you want, or keep them in the Spire app and jam.
