Apogee Announces Update to MetaRecorder

Apogee has announced MetaRecorder Version 2.0, the first two-channel audio recording app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch to offer multi-take recording, tagging and file organization for any field recording scenario.

Apogee said Version 2.0 adds support for the new UltraSync BLUE module by Timecode Systems along with updated compatibility with new Apogee products like Jam+ and MiC+.

With the additional purchase of the UltraSync BLUE module, IOS users can wirelessly sync audio and video from up to four devices over Bluetooth with a range up to 50 feet. The BLUE timecode protocol is currently compatible with two IOS apps: Mavis Camera and MetaRecorder.

Once the Bluetooth connection is established within the Mavis Camera app (for video) or Apogee MetaRecorder (for audio) each connected device will be synced and ready for recording. Timecode from BLUE is automatically embedded in the media files’ metadata for easy sync when using your favorite Mac editing app.

UltraSync BLUE is the first device to enable iOS users to wirelessly sync audio and video from up to four devices over Bluetooth. The Apogee MetaRecorder app and the MAVIS Camera app have both adopted support for Timecode Systems’ new system which, for the first time, allows sound and video recorded on an iPhone to be synced with sub-frame accuracy using Timecode over Bluetooth.

While using the BLUE transmitter even out-of-range devices continue to generate timecode. Once devices return within range, timecode is jam-synced to the BLUE source. The BLUE transmitter will remain powered for up to 16 hours per charge.
