We’re super excited to announce FiRe, an iPhone application by Audiofile Engineering that turns your iPhone into a professional field recorder! Now the greatest thing about FiRe (we think) is that you can upload your recorded sounds straight to SoundCloud from your iPhone (using our open API). Simply tap the “Upload to My Account” button after you’re done recording, and the sound will be on its way to the cloud. That’s pretty neat!
Aside from the awesome SoundCloud integration, FiRe is packed with pro audio recording features. Location tagging, overdubbing, waveform editing, and Broadcast WAVE metadata make FiRe a powerful tool for journalists and musicians.
FiRe also supports stereo recording with external microphones such as the BLUE Mikey and Alesis ProTrack. If the internal mic is used for mono recordings, then the screen rotates 180 degrees, allowing users to best position the device for optimum directional pickup. Users can scroll the live waveform display with the touch of a finger or navigate it with a system of configurable double-taps.
