Spire Song Maker: Record Music - Latest Quality Issues
May 5, 2021
I'm having the same trouble as so many others! Can't connect with my android! I have a sweet Samsung and there should be NO TROUBLE! This is not acceptable after owning the unit for over a year. SUPPORT ANDROID USERS! Or do not market the product to them!

Can You Guys Please Make It Work With Airpods‼️‼️‼️
I love this app but if i try to record something and use my airpods to listen along, it makes the thing I'm recording behind the other track 🙄

I can't put away the metronome.

During the initial setup, every time it prompts for pairing an account and I press the Google link, the app crashes and restarts to the point of resyncing my phone with my Spire. It's an endless cycle. I've restarted everything, re-downloaded the app, no bueno. My phone reported over 10 crashes from the app in a few minutes. The app is currently 100% unusable for me, please fix so I can fully use your product, thanks!

Terrible execution
It is so surprising to me that this has been out for so long and they still haven't improved basic obvious things. Like, for example, who could think that it's a good idea to have the Spire completely disconnect every time you change apps? And then when it reconnects, it opens a new project instead of going back to the one you were on? And how you can't change effects after recording, or change the volume of certain sections? And how the "crop" function is extremely tedious and limited in its usage? I know the goal is for this program to be super simple, but there's no reason not to also include extra tools that you can use (or not use). If iPhone Garageband could easily connect to the Spire as an interface, I would always use that app instead and would never open this one again. I'm surprised that iZotope, a great company, hasn't improved this app. Also, I hate that they want you to pay for Spire premium. I already paid a ton of money for the Spire, don't ask me to then pay a monthly fee to have your frustrating app be slightly less frustrating. Ridiculous.

Why only wifi??? There is always an audio jack or usb c output on our smartphone or tablet ... It's ridiculous, especially since this app is for musicians. Uninstalled immediately.

The numerous additions to the app are messing it up!!!
App was working perfectly well like a year ago when there weren't so much features, then they started adding so much to it and now it crashes every 3 minutes, so flipping annoying

“That’s a crop icon...”
Typically when you “crop” audio in a DAW you are selecting what you want to keep, not selecting what you want to delete. This is NOT a DAW or a MAW (mobile audio workstation). In this software audio does not exist on top of a timeline. Because of that you cannot cut, paste and move around sections of audio within the global timeline. Rather, audio is constantly being over-written or deleted on the same audio file. Most likely the the amount of backend engineering required to gain that functionality would cost too much for the business model here. So if you're looking for Pro Tools in an app this is not it. If you want to have the ability to just record straight audio then it is somewhat useful.
Spire Song Maker: Record Music - Product Description
High-quality vocals with your iPhone or iPad

Spire for iOS combines award-winning iZotope audio processing with multi-track recording to make importing a beat, layering vocals, collaborating with your producer, and sharing songs easier than ever. When your iPhone is your mobile vocal booth with automatic Soundcheck and seamless cloud project sharing, recording high-quality vocals is possible anywhere.

• Import a beat and write lyrics

Get started by importing your beat. Easily write and develop your lyrics directly in the Spire app and have them front-and-center while you record. 

• Automatically set your levels and tone

When you run Soundcheck in Spire before you record, it will identify voice or an instrument, set your levels, and sculpt your tone. Vocals stand out in the mix through automatically adding compression, saturation, and EQ—powered by tech from the Vocal Assistant in iZotope's Nectar plug-in.

• Layer vocals and mix your tracks

Building a song with Spire is fast and intuitive. Easily capture lead vocals, overdubs, ad-libs, and more by just hitting record. You can edit out unwanted parts from any track with the trim tool. To mix, drag track icons up or down to adjust volume and left or right to pan.

• Collaborate with artists and producers

Text or email a project link to anyone from the Spire app and they can preview your song, export mixdowns, download individual tracks to edit in a DAW, or open in Spire to add tracks of their own. Cloud sharing lets you work with producers and collaborators no matter where you are.

• Share with your fans

If you’ve finished a song in Spire that you’re ready to show the world, you can publish your songs to SoundCloud, Instagram, and more directly from the app. Add artwork or a video to your project to make it your own before posting for your fans.
