Question – When I connect my iPhone earbuds, MetaRecorder records the earbud’s mic signal. How can I listen through earbuds (or other headphone/mic headsets) while recording with an Apogee/Sennheiser input device (such as Apogee Mic , Sennheiser ClipMic digital or MKE 2 digital)?
Answer: Connect your Apple iPhone earbuds first and then connect your Apogee or Sennheiser input device. To monitor as you record, go to the ‘Settings’ tab and engage the ‘Input Monitor’ switch.
- iOS uses the most recently connected audio device for audio I/O, so if an Apogee Mic is connected first and then a headset after, audio apps will use the headset for input and output. If the headset is connected first and then the MiC after, audio apps will use the headset for output and the MiC for input.

Yes! With the release of MetaRecorder v1.2, the app’s layout will scale fully for both the iPhone and iPad screen sizes.
(*Previous versions were designed for iPhone screen sizes, but could be loaded onto an iPad and will function in the same way as it does on an iPhone.)
To record the longest continuous file possible, we determined the following settings would provide the longest battery life when using MetaRecorder:
Note: the most important of these are: 1) set file format to CAF, and 2) make sure that the screen goes to sleep – MetaRecorder will keep on recording just fine.
