Ditch The DAW - Get One Of These
Over the years I've come to know many musicians and songwriters who struggle to record demos of their songs. They generally don't like getting bogged down with technical DAW tasks when they are in their creative songwriting modes. When a songwriter is in the depths of their creativity they don't want plug-ins, preamps and microphone placement getting in the way of their writing flow, no, instead they want a simple point and squirt device that can capture their ideas quickly without hesitation.
In the new Inspired Collaborations series from iZotope, two world-class musicians meet for the first time and are tasked to record a song in four hours on Spire Studio. Episode 1 features GRAMMY-winning mandolinist Chris Thile and Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards, who make something spontaneous sound years-in-the-making.
With one touch of the “Soundcheck” button, Spire Studio automatically sets the perfect microphone and instrument levels to eliminate distortion and clipping. Songwriters can immediately translate their lyrics into a song, wherever they are when inspiration strikes.
What Can You Do With Spire From iZotope?
Artists can record up to eight tracks, then seamlessly mix them within the Spire Studio app for a blended whole. The device’s famous, intuitive visual mixing makes it seamless to find your signature sound, and refresh your tracks with a wealth of iZotope’s studio-quality effects such as reverbs, delays and amp models. iZotope co-founder and CEO, Mark Ethier told us…
“Our core purpose has always been to make innovative products that inspire and enable people to be creative. As a true zero-latency, professional quality recording device on the Android platform, we wanted Spire Studio to enhance and democratize the creative experience for Android users. Our intelligent audio processing translates what a musician wants into what an engineer would do, so artists can focus on the sound and the music, not the technology behind it. That’s what Spire Studio is here to do. We’re just happy to see so many people excited to create.”
