Ferrite is the award-winning app you need for creating podcasts, radio journalism, or other professional voice production work — lectures, speeches, voiceovers and more.
It combines the ease-of-use of a “voice memo” audio recorder, with a versatile multi-track editing studio. Powerful tools like effects and automation are available when you need them. With its time-saving features and a UI designed to get out of your way, people around the world are switching to Ferrite.
— Streamlined Recording —
Open Ferrite and with just one tap you’re recording. No fuss, and it won't break a sweat even with hours-long sessions. Just make sure your device has enough free space!
Recording an interview and you want to highlight a few quotes? Have to take out some inappropriate language? Or just fluffed a sentence and need to fix it? Bookmark moments during your recording and they’ll be flagged up during edits, so you can jump right to them.
Monitor levels with live recording meters, or listen through headphones. Tag your audio to find it quickly later. And of course you can import audio from your Music Library, iCloud, and other services such as Dropbox.
Please note: the free version has limited duration for recording & editing projects. Upgrade to Pro and you can edit projects up to 24 hours long!
— Editing is a Snip —
Ferrite features full multi-track editing, from quick cuts, to producing a complete podcast or broadcast package. Zoom out to see hours at a glance, or zoom in all the way down to individual samples.
Take a single clip, or a bunch, and arrange them in an editing project: move, crop, slice, fade in and out, or crossfade between clips just by overlapping them. You have full control over each track’s volume and panning, and can Mute or Solo as needed.
And best of all, you needn’t fear trying out changes: Ferrite has great Undo/Redo — even if you quit the app and come back a month later, you can still undo all the way back to the moment you created your project!
— Advanced Features —
Need more? Ferrite also includes:
• Automatic ducking: set tracks to “duck under” others (e.g. ducking music behind voiceovers).
• Strip Silence: Carves away all the silent sections from a recording, making it easy to edit the remaining audio.
• (iPad only) Split View and Slide Over support: Use Ferrite side-by-side with other apps. Recording a narration? Open another app with your script and place Ferrite down the side of the screen. Or open the User Guide in Safari on one side while you learn Ferrite on the other.
With a single In-App Purchase, you can unlock many additional tools, including:
• Record up to 8 channels at once (with iOS 13 and compatible audio interface)
• Prepare your audio for production with Noise Reduction and Auto Levelling.
• Add professional effects to your tracks such as EQ, Noise Gate and Dynamic Range Compression, for projects that sound clean and engaging.
• Automate volume, panning and effects settings so they vary over time, both on individual tracks and the final mix.
• Tighten Audio can automatically take out awkward pauses and gaps.
• Producing a podcast or series? Create a template to get each new episode off to a flying start.
• Found the perfect settings for an effect or tool? Save them as a Preset for re-use in other projects.
• Audio Unit Extensions: if you have other apps installed that provide effects as Audio Unit Extensions, they’ll show up in Ferrite, where you can add them to tracks or projects.
Note: Split View and Slide Over require a recent iPad. Please see our support pages for more details on compatibility. Maximum number of tracks available depends on the speed of your device.

Invaluable to quickly deal with crosstalk and coughs on the other track

Version 2.6.2
I’ve been using Ferrite for over a year and love how easy it is to separate out crosstalk, eliminate coughs etc on the ‘other’ track. I use the strip silence feature and delete/ move audio clips with a quick tap or swipe with my Apple Pencil.

Excellent, easy to use app with great support

I’ve been using Ferrite for about six months and it has transformed my podcast efforts. Hit a speed bump with IOS14 and my support email got an immediate response, with a fix implemented within days. Cheers to Canis and the team, Ferrite is a powerful tool.

Full integration with Luma Fusion would be excellent

Version 2.0.4
Very good audio editing app, full integration with Luma Fusion would make it excellent.

Introduces noise and super clunky UI

Version 2.6.2
We’re back to 1 star. Introduces horrible noise with my Steinberg UR22C and Oktava M-012. No noise in garageband with same set-up.
The mono selector does NOT work properly. I have tried this again
Switch between mono and stereo input which wasn't too clear from the UX (awful generally)
The drop downs and UI are hard work to use and counterintuitive
This app is not worth £28 - as others have commented it’s a £10 app max. It should be able to handle proper equipment.

A gift to an audio beginner

KD engaging
Version 1.7.2
Even if you decide to pay the modest charge for Ferrite Pro, it’s a gift to the newcomer to audio work
The User Guide provide guidance that can reduce anxiety about learning and increase optimism about reaping a return on your investment

This is as £10 app not at £28.99 app

Version 1.8
This app is good but it’s not worth the £28.99 it’s a £10 app at best.

Best smartphone audio multitrack editor

Latest update freezes :-(
Version 1.2.2
This app is indispensable for radio journalists and podcasters who need to do complex edits on the go. It is a superb audio editing app with many features you wouldn’t expect to find in a smartphone. It is used widely by journalists and I teach it in all my audio editing classes. - Corinne Podger, Mobile Journalism Lecturer, University of Melbourne

Very good app, but...

Martin Koss
Version 1.7.5
Firstly I must say that this app functions well and produces 'useable' results. It's not going to compete with something like Adobe Audition but being able to get audio recordings edited on the go - with useable results - is great.
What cost it 2 stars is not the app itself but that I feel a bit conned by having to buy 2 apps from the same developer - as well as a hefty upgrade from Pro 1 to Pro 2 - that essentially do the same thing in slightly different ways to get the full editing options.
You see, Ferrite is a non-destructive editor that has excellent tools for cutting out the silent sections of some audio and having the eq and a few filters is handy for refining the sound quality. I paid for all upgrades (2 x £9.99) and now the upgrade (Version 2) which is another £14.99 to get new features.
That makes it a £35 app!
But, hang on a sec because the same company (developer) also makes Hokusai Audio Editor which does a lot of the same things. The main differences (other than slightly different ways of editing) is that this app is non-destructive and Hokusai is destructive (unless the user makes a duplicate before editing) and it has many more effects. That's another £9.99 for the 'pro' feature pack on that app.
I see no reason that the developer has 2 apps that do largely the same thing other than to rake in more money. We're not talking about a few £/$ either. These are expensive apps and the results are 'useable' but not 'pro'.
Having the freedom to create and edit audio recordings for a podcast is nice but I think the developer could have made the all-in-one perfect audio editing app by merging the 2 apps together rather than making 2 apps that are almost the same.

Ferrite is For Everyone.

Version 2.0
When I first installed this App, soon after its launch, I did so as the Developer appeared to have gone to great lengths to make the App accessible to those of us using Voiceover. I wanted to support his efforts.
I remember writing to him, at the time, asking him what his driver was for making the App accessible, as a distinct focus toward accessibility was rarer then that it seems to be now. His answer was that it was in his view the right thing to do.
Then, to my shame, I overlooked Ferrite, always going with the easy option transferring audio to my desktop for editing using an app which is totally familiar to me.
That is, until a couple of days ago, when I had no choice, a project to complete whilst on the road with no desktop alternative available.
I duly read the comprehensive user guide, a must, and set to work and to my utter delight, was able to accomplish everything I needed to.
Once I’d got to grips with the App, realised that for my requirements at least, there is nothing I can’t do in Ferrite that I would using my Desktop alternative, So much so, that I think I’ll pass on the desktop upgrade which has recently become available.
Ferrite takes some getting used to when using VO, but you’ll find that if you persist, persistence will pay off.
Finally, the in App purchases are well worth the investment in my view, especially if you intend editing audio on a regular basis.

An absolutely brilliant and essential app

Version 2.2.2
This is an amazing app that deserves much wider attention. It’s not just a brilliant replacement for the Voice Memos app but also for recording podcasts, music and anyting you might use a portable microphone for.
The free version has a really powerful feature set and the pro verion is…well, for pros and those who want the ultimate flexibility and control when it comes to multiple audio tracks and editing etc.
What really sets this app apart is not just the features but also the design – there are lovely flourishes everywhere, from the icons, to the scrubbing animation, to the audio clip information sheet. You can import existing Voice Memos and export them from Ferrite to pretty much anywhere and the support is amazing – the Developer was brilliant when I had a query about the app, offering great advice and responding really quickly.
I love this app – it’s crafted with care and attention by a team or a Developer who clearly knows their stuff, and their passion for it shines throughout this gem of a product. I urge you to give it a go. It knocks its rivals into a cocked hat…


Version 1.1.1
I have been podcasting for a year now with some moderate success (Walk the Talk) This app was recommended to me by a BBC broadcast journalist and I was then a complete novice. I have really found it easy to use but like anything with complex functions don’t expect to be fluent straight away. It is intuitive though and some of the more common functions used in sound recording are easily completed with a few swipes of the fingers. In fact it’s so easy I now record my studio work onto an expensive computer based program and then export to Ferrite to do the edit. The only reason I don’t record direct to Ferrite in the studio is because of the type of microphone but out in the field my digital mic plugs straight into my phone. I’ve never written a review before on anything but this app definitely deserves one. Dave Thomas

Great App

Version 1.3.2
I have been using this application to edit my podcasts for the last few months now and couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Initially I was a little intimidated with the UI but after finally working out the basics everything fell into place.
The speed I can now edit a show is amazing. From dragging in separate tracks, positioning, editing, removing extended silence, tightening, levelling and finally exporting, all from my iPad Pro and Pencil, is a joy.
If you produce podcasts you really owe it to yourself to check out this wonderful application.

Solid upgrade. Some suggestions...

Version 1.2.1
Can I suggest the following for a later revision?
- The ability to name tracks in edit mode.
- When a track is soloed, remove the ambiguity of the other tracks by indicating they are muted.
- When adjusting effects (not via automation), highlight which track is affected.
- An option for solo / mute to be effective post effects chain. I have some tracks with long decay times in the delay effect. If I mute this track or solo a different track I have to wait until the effect decays before I can hear the other tracks.

Not intuitive at all.

Version 1.3
When you're new to sound recording you need everything laid out to the lowest common denominator so that it's very easy to understand. This app is just not.
The interface is boringly black and white. The instructions should be in bubble format, because there is nothing worse than having to trawl through pages of instructions, and options.
It does what it says on the tin, but I'm finding it a bag of nails to understand....EASILY!
It's impressively comprehensive but unimaginatively put together with lots of ambiguity built in.
In other words.....unless your instinctively clever at understanding 'sound terms' and are used to recording then this app is far too dodgy to learn with any ease.

Just fantastic.

Version 1.4.3
Wow so this is the good life. There are many apps that can record your voice and edit it, but there are few that can do it with such flair and simplicity. This app manages to combine very powerful tools and recording abilities with a deceivingly simple user interface, however do not let this deceive you it is an amazing app with some truly great hidden depths and I would recommend it to anybody who has to record their voice or a podcast. Great stuff!

Top app!!!!Mad Ferrite!!!!our kid!!!

Version 2.5.4
Great recording app for musicians using other application and instruments to lay down tracks
Only used the basic package and will be upgrading to the pro version when I've got a spare £20
I don't do reviews normally but if you need a iOS app for music recording then look no further you've won
I've-gone through all the applications in the App Store and this ones the "chicken dinner" all day and twice or a Sunday
Your welcome

Brilliant - best around for iPad

Version 1.4.3
Ferrite is just so, so good. I host/produce a simple podcast, and it's just great for that.
Very intuitive, and has a few useful gadgets.
It's super easy, and flexible with different file types. Don't know what it's like if you do highly-produced content, but for what we do (a few different tracks, music, a few clips) it's perfect and v quick.

Brilliant, but

Troll master 1234612346953/
Version 1.1
I've been using this app for quite a while now. It is brilliant for recording and mixing multiple track music. However, there is no feature to upload direct to YouTube from the app. Could this be added to the app? If so, it would be perfect. I'm yet to purchase premium, however this amendment would make it worth while.

The missing link for podcast production on iOS

Version 1.7.3
I've been using Ferrite now for a few months and I can genuinely say it's incredible.
For years I've been using my MacBook for my podcast production but was desperate to move to iOS. Ferrite was the app I've been waiting for. Combined with some nifty workflows and a popular FTP client I'm now able to do the entire show on my iPad Pro. Simply put - thank you !


Version 1.5
This app is slick and even on an iPhone you can slice up a recording and email it to someone in minutes. Believe the hype.

Serious Audio Editor

I'm still learning the full capabilities of this app but so far it's met my expectations.

Really great software and interface

In general this is a really functional and intuitive way to edit audio on the iPad.
I haven't been able to find a better alternative to this kind of thing.

Powerful stuff

I've now recorded and edited half a dozen podcasts using this app. I'm new to this game and I love the fact I can do so much with just my iPhone and a mic.
Also worth noting that I got very responsive and helpful replies from the developer when I ran into a problem. I believe they really care about this app and that makes me feel good about buying it.
If you want to record on the go, this is well worth the small price.

One of the best iOS DAWs

Fraser Speirs
Ferrite is quite simply one of the best iOS digital audio workstations available. It is better than most other apps in that it uses gestures and iOS-native controls for the various editing operations. I have been using it to record and edit a daily podcast for weeks now with great success.
