Master Record app is new app from developers of AudioMastering app reviewed on ipadmusic.com recently. I like to see more and more professional level music apps for iPad and it’s also good to see Audiobus support from the 1st version.
Master Record is the first audio recorder for iOS which contains some of the effects inherent to analogue tape recorders such wow/flutter, tape saturation and noise adding.
Not only as an effect but also as a standalone application the Master Record can be used with external audio interfaces for real-time sound processing and high-quality recording in the studio together with other equipment.
In addition with this application you can convert audio formats, change sample rate, convert bit depth, cut part or trim a track and apply fade-in and fade-outs.
