Minneapolis, MN (July 16, 2009) – Audiofile Engineering, a leading audio software developer for the Mac, announces version 1.1 of FiRe, their professional field recording App for the Apple iPhone and iPod touch.

In addition to iPhone OS 3.0 compatibility, FiRe adds to its lengthy list of professional recording features with Varispeed playback, multiple VU meter styles including K-System scales, and adjustable input gain. This new version also adds workflow enhancements such as public or private uploads to SoundCloud, web server authentication, the ability to add a picture reference to the recording, and the ability to name and rename marker points.

FiRe was designed to bring serious field recording to audio professionals with an accurate real-time waveform display, audio markers, support for professional Broadcast WAVE metadata, and the instant downloading of audio files in multiple formats. Users can scroll the live waveform display with the touch of a finger or navigate it with a system of configurable double-taps.

FiRe includes professional and accurate VU meters for input and output signals, a moveable playback head, configurable time units, the ability to tag recordings with location data, and an overdub mode for layering tracks. FiRe also offers native SoundCloud integration, making it simple to upload recordings directly to the web and share them with the tap of a button.
