The app uses AI to "drastically simplify high quality audio recording and help musicians and songwriters focus on being creative. Tape It turns an iPhone into a stereo microphone. The app is designed both for recording and for organising, annotating, sharing and listening to recorded ideas. It uses a range of AI algorithms and smart UX to help users find ideas even in a large library of recordings. Special emphasis was put on recording and listening to long songwriting and practice sessions - a common pain point with existing recording solutions.
CEO Thomas Walther says:
We built this simply based on our own music making needs. Existing solutions are either completely basic, or made for recording engineers. Tape It is for musicians. It is entirely designed to help you stay creative and play your instruments. In the long run, the company plans to use its experience in music AI to further improve recording quality and completely remove the need for dedicated recording equipment that most musicians still buy today.
Price: Free on the Apple App Store, with high quality stereo recording available for a $20 annual subscription.
