Press Spire’s Soundcheck button, and once it auto-calibrates the perfect level to prevent clipping, you’re ready to record. Try a few takes, keep the best one, label your track and order another coffee, safe in the knowledge that your idea is ready to work on with your friend later in the afternoon.
2. Mobile recording on the road
You and your two bandmates are in your van, driving cross country to play a gig the next day. Halfway through your 12-hour voyage, you pull over for a break at a rest stop.
On the way, you spoke about an acoustic track you want to get down and share with your fans before tomorrow’s show. That would be a far-fetched notion if you didn’t have your Spire Studio in tow!
How Spire helps:
Before you know it, you’re all sat inside the van, instruments in hand with your Spire Studio and mobile app ready for action—the entire setup process has cost you a mere 10 minutes of your time.
First, don your headphones, adding an Acoustic Shaper reverb effect to your guitar channel to create atmosphere—one of Spire Studio’s 10 studio-grade effects which include ultra-realistic spaces, amps and pedal emulations.
Within 30 minutes, you can have your main rhythm tracks, lead lines, vocals and percussion locked down with Spire Studio’s noiseless preamps and high-quality omnidirectional microphone to capture a sound that is dynamic, flawless and rich in tone.
From here, it’s easy to pack up, jump back in the van and continue the second leg of your journey. On the way, use the app’s visual mixer to experiment with panning and set the perfect levels, bringing your song to life before bestowing it with a title and sharing it through SoundCloud and Facebook directly from the app.
