iZotope updates Spire Studio and cloud ecosystem

Posted on: Wednesday 7th of April 2021

iZotope has launched the new iteration of its Spire Studio recording device, the entry point to the cloud-based ecosystem of recording, production, and collaboration tools.

Billed as a quick and easy way of working for musicians and producers looking to quickly capture inspiration, Spire has received buzzy endorsements from artists including Phoebe Bridgers during the lockdown period, as they looked for innovative ways to continue being creative. The company says this led to the product all but disappearing from stockists during the pandemic, at which point it took the opportunity to make further improvements to the hardware recording device.

As part of the new, updated Spire Studio package, owners will get the free Spire companion app for iOS and Android, and six free months of Spire Pro for iOS, which offers AI-powered features and effects. While the Spire Studio features its own onboard mic, it also allows connection of instruments and mics-of-choice via two combo inputs that can be tasked to provide phantom power. The recording capacity of the small tabletop unit has also been upped to over 8 hours, and – so the company says – battery drain is lower too.

The software is built to allow collaboration via mix notes and text or email sharing of previews, project files, mixdowns and stems, while on the sound side it leverages iZotope’s processing expertise with the facility to automatically remove unwanted background noise, pops, clipping, and plosives with cloud-based repair algorithms. The Spire Pro app also offers a ‘Personalised Soundcheck’ that can monitor changes in the recording environment to provide consistent vocals.
