While trying new applications is part of the fun of mobile reporting, changing from a proven app to a new one can be nerve wracking.
Since Day One of my #iphonereporting — February 2010, to be a bit more specific — I’ve used Vericorder apps , most recently Voddio, for my multi-track audio editing.
After years of neglect, I began looking, and eventually waiting, for a new multi-track editing app that looked like the Adobe Audition desktop software I’m familiar with.
With a few taps, I can record interviews, pull cuts, record voice tracks, finely edit, rearrange tracks, change volumes, and mix ambient sounds into a professional-quality report, which can be emailed and shared on social media.
While there are plenty of multi-track recorders for musicians, Ferrite is aimed at journalists and podcasters, in terms of functionality and workflow. It’s iOS-only.
I’m very impressed by the responsiveness of the lead developer, Canis, who has demonstrated an interest and willingness to integrate suggestions from working journalists into feature updates.
Check out the new kid.
