I’ve been using iSequence on the iPad to do a bit of tracking and sequencing and it’s a fantastic application – the iPad I’m sure will revolustionse alot of audio produciton work – and had some problems using the built in sound recorder.
If you too are getting distorted recordings I’ve found a workaround.
- Power off the iPad (hold down the power button and swipe off)
- Restart the iPad
- Start iSequence and record sound – result is distorted
- Shut down iSequence
- Start iSequence and record sound – sound is good to go! (within the limits of the hardware)
The iPad isn’t very configurable for recording yet and I don’t see any devices on the horizon to support plug in microphones however for rough and ready instamatic sound snapshots in the right environments, it has interesting possibilities.
UPDATE – 5/8/10
A new update to this app is now available with a fix to the recording function, so I’m pleased to say the developers were listening!
