Our Verdict

Spire serves as a link between the creative spark and the finished product. It’s never been easier to record at a professional level on iOS.

It may appear expensive for a two-in, two-out interface, especially one linked to iOS, but it’s worth it as a standalone recorder. The rapidity with which ideas can be laid down is ideal for creative types, and it is backed up by strong iZotope software tools to bring those ideas to life. We’d like to see the hardware open up to all platforms in the future, with MIDI enabled. However, for the time being, Spire Studio checks a lot of boxes for anyone wishing to expand their iOS production setup.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy this product has to be Amazon, due to their competitive pricing and fantastic customer service.
