Spire: Music Recorder & Studio

iZotope, Inc.
Spire combines award-winning iZotope audio processing with multitrack recording to make importing a beat, layering vocals, collaborating with a producer, and sharing your song easier than ever.


No matter where you are, your vocal booth is only as far away as your pocket. Whether you're a rapper or singer, you can now effortlessly import a beat and record high-quality vocals with nothing more than your smartphone.


When you’re ready to record, there’s no need to waste time manually setting your levels and EQ. In seconds, Spire’s Soundcheck detects your voice or instrument, automatically sets your input level, and sculpts your tone based on the instrument. Spire ensures that your vocal takes always sound great in the mix.


Quickly trim tracks to tighten up your project before you start mixing. Just highlight the parts you want to delete and remove the unwanted audio with the tap of a button.


Mixing on the Spire app is easy and smooth. Drag track icons up and down to adjust volume, and left and right to pan. The visual mixer makes building your soundscape effortless. The Wide/Narrow feature puts iZotope's award-winning Ozone Imager signal processing to work, making the selected track sound big and lush or more focused. When you run Soundcheck before you record, it intelligently selects the best width setting based on what’s detected.


Collaborating on a song with producers, co-writers, or a guest artist has never been this easy. Import a track from your producer and lay down your vocals in seconds. When you’re done, text or email a project link back so they can download your vocal tracks and work with them in a DAW. Send this link to anyone and they can preview the song, open the project in the Spire app to add their own tracks, or download an .MP3 or .WAV mixdown. Spire’s cloud sharing makes working with a producer, adding your rap to a friend’s record, and sharing your next hit fast and intuitive.


If you’ve finished a song with Spire and are ready to share it with your fans, you can publish it directly to SoundCloud or create a video file with your own cover photo to post on social media platforms like Instagram. Share finished song ideas to fans and producers as soon as you want them out in the world.
