This is a very cool little $5 iOs app from Apogee. Designed for Sennheiser clip-on mics, (will work with anything, including a built in mic), you can record, and add markers, Roles, Favorites and Keywords in the app. Then export audio and fcpxml to Dropbox, and import into FCP X. All the metadata comes with it. Also, you can control recording, add markers, mic levels, and Favorite takes… from the Apple Watch. I don’t have an Apple Watch, but if I did more location recording, this would be a great reason to get one. 🙂
It’s a free download and records 60 seconds until it’s unlocked. You can unlock via $5 in-app purchase, or for free (limited time offer it seems) by just plugging in an Apogee or Sennheiser device. I recorded and marked up a couple takes today, and here’s what came into FCP X. Great use of technology. I bought it, and I don’t even need it. lol
Awesome, I have been dreaming of things like this since FCPX is out. Next step is include this metadata system in apps for Cameras with wifi.
