CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--iZotope, Inc., Emmy Award-winning experts in intelligent audio technology, announces retail availability of Spire Studio for September 27, 2017 – a wireless, portable, multi-track recording system that goes anywhere. Working together with the free, integrated iOS Spire app, this versatile system makes it easy to capture and develop your music in professional-quality — from the moment of inspiration to sharing it with the world.
Spire Studio's compact and portable design fits into a small bag or guitar case, turning any location into a pro studio. Built with a long-lasting, rechargeable battery, Spire Studio is ready for hours of recording time wherever the creative process happens.
At home or on the road, musicians and songwriters can now record and edit their music with a built-in, studio-quality mic and a wealth of creative effects like amp models, reverbs, and delays. To get projects started quickly and easily, iZotope’s intelligent audio processing eliminates setup time and distorted sounds by automatically setting recording levels with a single “Soundcheck” button.
Spire Studio also simplifies the multi-track recording process, making it easy to layer and mix up to eight individual parts to create a polished song that can be shared with audio editing software, cloud storage services, or collaborators and bandmates anywhere in the world.
“Spire cuts out the setup time and technical complexity of the recording experience, letting artists get to the heart of capturing creative moments in a quality they’re used to hearing come out of a pro studio," says Colin Thurmond, iZotope Product Marketing Manager. “We've continually seen Spire Studio resonate with all kinds of musicians – from classical to rock, and folk to hip-hop – in addition to producers, audio engineers, and even podcasters.”
