One of the things I love most about Spire Studio is the free companion Spire app. An eight-track recorder that lets you capture, edit, and layer song ideas, it’s like having your own personal mixing engineer right at your fingertips. The app is free for everyone to enjoy (it's available for download in the Apple App Store, so if you don't have it yet, get your hands on it).
With the app, you can create, save, and access projects from anywhere, including a built-in metronome to help you stay in time while recording. Edit your recordings to remove unwanted audio and create seamless loops. Quickly mute and audition tracks to make the songwriting and rehearsal processes easier.
Mixing on the fly is made really easy with the Visual Mixer, so you can stay in the creative zone wherever you are. And to make things even better, you can instantly share a track or the entire session with a friend to collaborate on a work in progress.
But where the app really begins to shine, is when you pair it with Spire Studio. It's like having your own portable recording studio, ready for your great musical ideas wherever you are. Whether you're doing a "30 songs in 30 days" challenge in your home studio or sitting in a canoe on a lake, Spire Studio lets your record studio-quality audio with minimal effort. The built-in microphone auto-calibrates to your dynamics so that you're never too soft or too loud. So wherever inspiration strikes, you'll be ready to get those ideas down in no time. And do so at high quality.
One of the amazing things that happen when you pair the Spire app with your Spire Studio is that you suddenly are given access to a bunch of effects that can make your recordings sound spectacular. In this article, I'll go over all the effects that are included in the app and how you can use them.
