Free Tascam PCM Recorder For iPhone, iPod, and iPad

TASCAM PCM Recorder is a free stereo recorder for iOS devices. It supports up to 12 hours of recording, using the built-in microphone or connected USB devices like the TASCAM iM2 stereo microphone. EQ, limiting, Soundcloud support and more make this a full-featured professional recorder.


Recording is now possible in iOS 5.x when the device is locked (because of the auto-lock function or pressing the On/Off Sleep/Wake Button).
In order to prevent unexpected feedback noise, the speaker button is automatically turned OFF when recording or in recording standby. In the previous version, the speaker button stayed OFF after recording (or standby) ended, but in this version, the speaker button is turned ON again if it was ON beforehand.
Operation has been confirmed with the TASCAM iM2 Stereo Microphone and TASCAM iU2 Audio/MIDI Interface.
In order to protect the recorded data, recording will automatically stop before the iOS device stops when the remaining battery charge becomes less than about 15%. In addition, if recording is started when the remaining battery charge is near 15%, a low battery warning appears on screen.

New Features:

Automatic detection of stereo input sources such as the TASCAM iM2
Mono L mode added
Smooth ramp up/down at the start/end of a recording
New Limiter matches TASCAM DR hand held recorders
Input/Output level sliders now go up to +12dB, with no zipper noise
More accurate meters

Tascam iPad Portastudio

I kinda miss the old days of recording on my Tascam multi-track cassette. Looks like Tascam realised there would be a market for function and nostalgia in one iPad app. A little gimickey but hey!

TASCAM’s Portastudio brings 30 years of easy-to-use home recording to your iPad. Based on the PORTA ONE recorder that revolutionized recording in 1984, the Portastudio app records up to four tracks with a vintage vibe.

Record one track at a time using the built-in mic or a headset microphone connection, monitoring on authentic VU meters. A cassette transport with position counter tracks your position while you mix with level, pan and EQ controls. When you’re ready to mix, the built-in mixdown function saves your song as a CD-quality WAV file. Your mix appears in iTunes when you’re finished, ready to share with friends and bandmates.

A generation of your favorite bands crafted their songs with Portastudios, now it’s your turn. Start capturing your songs with the company that invented home recording using Portastudio by TASCAM.
