As their first foray into the world of high-quality hardware, iZotope's Spire Studio went above and beyond to provide users with an easy-to-use solution for portable recording. With the Spire Studio 2nd Gen, you get everything that made the original so exceptional, plus several optimizations and added benefits geared for both studio engineers and traveling producers. Upgraded preamps add a welcome shine to your vocals and instrument tracks, with an onboard omnidirectional condenser mic for picking up sounds on the fly. Spire Studio's exclusive software handles everything from auto-mastering your tracks to injecting additional character, with stems and mixes easily sharable via Spire's cloud sharing. When paired with the free Spire app, Spire Studio becomes an ultra-powerful production tool, capable of 8-track recording with an incredible amount of functionality to improve your recordings and edit them to perfection. Finally, there's Spire Pro, iZotope's subscription upgrade that is chock full of more functions to polish your sound and bring out the absolute best in your recordings.
At its core, Spire Studio is a top-notch audio recorder that easily pairs with mobile devices of all kinds. Its two combo 1/4-inch/XLR inputs are perfect for recording instruments and mics, with new and improved preamps for significantly better interference rejection and a smoother sound along with sky-high headroom for considerably less clipping. When out and about, it's crucial to have your tools at the ready when inspiration strikes. Thankfully, Spire Studio comes equipped with a discreet studio-quality omnidirectional condenser microphone that is capable of capturing sounds in all directions with crisp, clean results. Not to mention, Spire Studio can run for over four hours on a single charge with an increased storage capacity giving you over eight hours of recording space â€” whether you are at home or out in the field, you can rest assured knowing Spire Studio is always ready for action.
With the free Spire app, high-quality recordings on your phone and tablet are at your fingertips. You get up to eight tracks for each project, perfect for layering instruments, vocals, and beats to your heart's desire. The Soundcheck function instantly beefs up your sound by identifying voices and instruments, and setting appropriate levels with a Vocal Assistant to adjust the EQ. When it's time to lay down your vocal tracks, the app's digital notepad makes it easy to write and check lyrics and song notes on the fly. You also get access to trim/editing functions, a visual mixer, and wide/narrow stereoizing. With seemingly limitless options, the Spire app is the ideal companion to the Spire Studio.
If Spire Studio's solid feature set wasn't good enough, iZotope has sweetened the pot with Spire Pro. This monthly subscription unlocks even greater functionality at a price designed to fit any budget. To start, you get a handy Automatic Noise Removal function derived from iZotope's highly acclaimed RX software, which is capable of removing unwanted background sounds, vocal reverb, and instrument/vocal noise. Pesky pops stand no chance against Spire Pro's Virtual Pop Filter that is designed to combat plosives in vocal tracks. Sweetwater producers are floored by Spire Pro's pitch tuning technology, which takes the best of iZotope Nectar's pitch module and automatically tunes your vocals. For non-vocal mixes, Spire Pro's Inspire Me random effects/parameter generator is guaranteed to open your ears to new tonal possibilities by throwing static EQ, plate reverb, iZotope Trash distortion, echo, chorus, tremolo, phaser, or flanger effects on your tracks. The cherry on top is the upgraded Soundcheck function, adding personalized processing to your takes for a crisper, more consistent final product. Plus, iOS users get six months of Spire Pro for free!
