iZotope Spire Studio overview

  • 1Description

Designed for singer/songwriters, mobile producers, and more, the iZotope Spire Studio Recorder is a table-top device that aims to help you record and mix with as few wires as possible. It might look like a typical digital assistant, but this unit is capable of recording up to eight tracks, and, with its corresponding Spire app, the unit allows you to mix all eight tracks right within your phone—or export tracks to your favorite DAW for building upon your sketches in the studio.

The Spire is Wi-Fi enabled, showing up automatically within your iPhone. If you're using the Android app, the Spire will be found in your Samsung S6 (or later). Once you fire up the corresponding iOS or Andrioid app, configuring the device to record is relatively uncomplicated, thanks to its intuitive interface. Prominent record and playback buttons sit top-center, surrounded by a LED touchscreen that simultaneously displays levels and allows you to navigate through the app. The New Song button automatically opens a new song, while the Soundcheck button calibrates your Spire to receive optimum levels; simply tap the button, begin playing or singing, and the machine will handle the rest. When you record, audio will be beamed over Wi-Fi to your phone without loss in fidelity. Indeed, this device transmits audio at 24-bit/48 kHz, which is sufficient for studio-quality applications. Also, the preamps in the Spire were designed in conjunction with Grace Design, a well-regarded company. 

Mixing on the app is also a rather intuitive affair, with iZotope algorithms on hand for EQ, reverb, delay, and more to help you manipulate audio into a cohesive sonic picture. A metronome with tap-tempo capability is provided for keeping your tempi straight, while on the mixing side, volume and panning control is a matter of manipulating the X/Y-axis matrix with your finger.

You can record through the Spire’s built-in microphone, which provides an omnidirectional capsule. Using processes derived from iZotope’s Ozone platform, signal derived from this microphone can be modified to approximate stereo, if that’s your desire. Two combination jacks on the back provide XLR or 1/4" connections, giving you the ability to plug-in your own microphones or instruments. Connecting an instrument or mic to input 1 will disable the built-in microphone; however, you can plug an instrument into input 2 and still use the built-in microphone to record. Near the combination jacks, you’ll find a push-button switch for sending phantom power to condenser microphones. Two 3.5mm headphone jacks are on hand, so you and a friend can both monitor signal. The unit ships with its own power supply, which charges the built-in battery, which lasts up to four hours at a clip.

Note: Please note: You must have a Samsung S6 or later to use the Android app.

    iZotope Spire Studio reviews

    Spire Studio Wireless Recorder is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Simple!! I never leave reviews for things...but this piece of gear was totally worth writing about.� This thing is AMAZING!!� I've been in recording studios, have done home recording and have been around this stuff for years.� One of my biggest limitations that I would have when songwriting was my workflow.� As I'm now more domesticated and a family man, being able to record at home was just super tough.� This thing just gets the job done and super quick!� My ideas aren't hindered by workflow anymore and sound 10x better then any voice memo I've ever recorded.� I liked this product enough that I went ahead another one for some of the other people I collaborate with in songwriting so they could contribute to the process.� Can't praise this thing enough!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing and hopefully soon even more amazing Spire studio makes recording music incredibly simple. Eliminating the restrictions of the computer is huge. Sit down anywhere and record with three button clicks. Editing app is pretty limited not having the ability to move track segments and loop segments but I’m sure they’ll allow it soon. Hopefully. Still, a very useful tool for musicians.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome So simple to use, unbox and start recording. Mix feature is brilliant, get a studio mix in seconds. Soundcheck, press record, and thats it, unbelievable quality recordings. Put down 3 numbers 7 piece band in 3 hours ready to export to anyone anywhere. Would like to see more effects for vocal tracks, effects are a bit light on. Other than that, a sound engineer in the palm of your hand. Regards John.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useless as a Stand Alone recorder Pretty much does not work at all without iphone app. Headphone jack (listen back) volume on this unit is way too low even at max level, which makes over dubbing vocals in stand-alone mode impossible. Works pretty good with the iphone app. But what's the use of having this clunky $350 multi-track recorder that does not work good without using it thru the phone. Might as well just buy a good quality mic and use a good multi-track recording app without this expensive clunky device.
