Whilst this isn’t really in the music making space, I thought it would be useful to a few people. Soundmarks has some interesting features as an audio recorder that I haven’t seen elsewhere, and it’s free with an IAP for export.

Here’s the detail:

Soundmarks is the professional grade recorder for iOS that helps you focus on the most important sections of your recordings. The start of each section is marked with a soundmark. In a nutshell, a soundmark is to a recording what a bookmark is to a book. At playback, you can jump between these soundmarks with only one tap, making it easy to listen only the things you’re interested in.

Perfect for a multitude of work, school or daily activities, including:

  • lectures, meetings, interviews, conferences
  • brainstorming, planning, patient progress notes
  • learning new languages and more

Core features:

  • three types of soundmarks, text, drawing and photo
  • create soundmarks while recording or playing
  • modify the timestamp of any soundmark
  • pause the recorder at any time and seamlessly continue your recording session later
  • at playback time, jump between soundmarks, this allows you to listen only the parts you’re interested in
  • recording/playing also works when the device is locked or the app is in background
  • universal app
  • support for the latest devices

In-app purchase features:
