Apogee Electronics’ MetaRecorder, a free download from the Apple App store, is a 2-channel audio recording application for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that is tailored for mobile audio production for video. Apogee’s MetaRecorder offers multi-take recording, tagging and file organization for any field recording scenario.
A companion to Sennheiser’s digital clip-on microphones, powered by Apogee, MetaRecorder features 24-bit/96kHz recording quality plus software control of input level and recording presets.
Users can control essential features of MetaRecorder on an iPhone from an Apple Watch: start and stop recording, Favorite a Take, add Markers, or set the microphone input level.
MetaRecorder allows users to apply metadata tags like Keywords, Favorites, Markers and more to audio files while recording in the field, and then share the recorded audio and Final Cut Pro XML files to Dropbox directly from MetaRecorder. When imported into Final Cut Pro on a Mac, the captured metadata simplifies the process of organizing and parsing media files, which helps to accelerate post-production workflow.
For a limited time, connecting a compatible Apogee or Sennheiser device (see list below) permanently unlocks unlimited continuous recording. MetaRecorder also works with the built-in microphone or any other iOS compatible device but is limited to 60 seconds of continuous recording. An in-app upgrade can be purchased for $4.99 to unlock continuous recording.

- Sennheiser ClipMic digital
