I wonder how the NR compares to the later versions of sound forge which is quite good now, b4 it had all kinds of strange artifacts. :)

I did go ahead and get both Ferrite and Hokusai for around $39.98 combined $US. It will take me a while to learn them with my iPad Pro. I am looking forward to the experience. I used Adobe Audition years ago when I had vision. I was encouraged by the noise reduction that is described on several reviews I read for Ferrite Studio Pro. That was one of the major strengths of Adobe Audition.

The original eMail was written 4 days ago and since then I’ve had more time to play with Ferrite Recording Studio and so on.
Regarding normalisation? Ferrite shouldn’t require this function as it already has an AGC which can be toggled in the settings.
In any case most people have a reference with their system that they can set levels by so you will know pretty much straight away if the level is too high, lower levels can be tolerated of course as there is no chance of clipping.
Secondly ferrite Recording Studio is ana absolute joy to use particularly if you’re using an iPad with a keyboard connected, not only do you have the excellent touch gestures and shortcuts at your fingertips but you also have quite a good list of keyboard shortcuts to do the job with.

I don't think Ferrite has a normalise feature or does it?

Twisted Wave and TW Recorder are some of my other favourite audio Apps
for IOS.
TW Recorder is free but for a small extra fee you can buy a complete
conversion package so if one say recorded using Ferrite Studio etc
then they could use the extra add-in on tW Recorder to convert say to FLAC, OGG etc.
With the new generations of IOS devices conversion is incredibly fast.

Yes, there are other apps that can be used to convert audio files
into various file formats. I’m not sure what all of those apps are,
but I know they exist. Even garage band is pretty cool! I just wish
there were more tutorials for Ferrite recording studio and Hokusai.
The user guides are good, but more tutorials would be helpful. Maybe
someone will develop tutorials in the near future.

Yes ferrite Recording Studio and Hokusaki are great Apps to work
with under IOS.
Both have a few limitations such as file format conversions but its
not a huge hurdle to overcome as other Apps can be used to convert
file formats and so on.
I like the fact that - with the Hokusai App - one can perform audio
scrubbing at different speeds whilst moving the playhead, what a
great feature.

Ferrite recording studio is a great app! I think it’s comparable to
most of your Windows based desktop audio editing apps. I don’t
think you would be lacking anything by using this app instead of
apps developed for desktop and laptop computers.

I am very grateful that this app developer has chosen to make the
app accessible and improve its accessibility on a regular basis.
Plus, according to what I have read in the App Store, the developer
is willing to answer questions.

Thanks for bringing this App to the attention of the list.
The App is designed to function differently than BackPack Studio
but is most useful if you're involved in audio production just the same.
I'm a firm believer in - wherever possible - supporting developers
who go out of their way to make their products accessible and
user-friendly, the developer of Ferrite Studio Recorder has
certainly made the App very accessible it would appear from the
short exploration I had of the App over the last half hour.
The user guide is easy to follow and can be either read through
the App or downloaded as a separate file for reading on other devices etc.

Thank you for sending this! I’m totally blind since birth, I use
iOS with VoiceOver and I just bought this app. I’ve been looking
for a tutorial. Now if I could only find tutorials for Hokusai
and Ferrite Recording Studio.

Thanks again,

Thought people may wish to examine the following page as we have
been discussing the Backpack Studio App on list.
The tutorial presented here is very basic but certainly more than
enough information is presented here for the beginner.
