MasterRecord review - analog warmth for your iPad recording

New excellent review of Master Record from John Walden for Music App Blog.

MasterRecord music app review - analog warmth for your iPad recording.

- "If you are building a comprehensive app collection for your iPad-based recording studio, then Igor Vasiliev’s Audio Mastering app most certainly ought to be part of that. It is an excellent mastering solution implemented brilliantly in an iPad-scaled context.

Master Record is perhaps a slightly different type of case and a somewhat more niche application. It might not be the first app you buy after you have installed your chosen DAW app and I suspect there might be a few others (a guitar amp sim, a few synths and Audio Mastering itself for a start) that you might want to acquire before MasterRecord bubbles up to the top of your shopping list.

But, if you already have that app collection in place and are looking to build upon it and add to your already extensive iPad recording options, MasterRecord is another excellent piece to slot into the jigsaw. Its processing might not be as dramatic as some other effect-type apps but that’s exactly what’s intended; a subtle - but highly flexible - dose of analog-style warmth in an very easy-to-use format. And whether it’s for use with existing files or to process live recording via Audiobus on its way into your DAW, the results are very good indeed.

In MasterRecord, Igor Vasilev has produced another iOS music app masterpiece. It may be a specialist tool, but it is well worth the price of entry for all well-stocked iOS recording workflows. Buy it and feel the warmth…. :-)"
