Which app for voice recording?

bossjockAll I wanted to do was practise recording my voice so I could get over the sound of it. It’s a recommendation which is working well. I have had some good feedback from listening to my recordings and I have had a chance to normalise recording myself. I worked in a language laboratory for 10 years and ought to feel comfortable with voice recordings. I’m not. I need faces to talk to. I don’t like talking to the air or a camera lens. I was looking on my iPad for what I could use. I found Beats!HD which doesn’t appear to be available in the app store anymore. Then there was Boss jock studio which is a paid app I got as a birthday present and which I reviewed here.It is very good and makes very clear recordings. Wavepad was there because it is on all my devices. It’s a really good, straight forward free recording app which you can buy content for but it works extremely well as the free app. I also found Garage Band which came free with my iPad Air. Beats!HD doesn’t have a timer but it records easily and has the carts where you can store your recordings. Bossjock has the carts too (the little squares in the image.) That is such a good idea for a classroom and I wish all recording apps would store their files like this instead of in lists which you tap on. It means current content is there before your very eyes and easily labelled and accessible. You don’t want to be fumbling with lists with 30 students waiting for you to get going. Wave Pad gives you the chance to easily clean up and enhance your recordings with simple , easy to follow buttons. GarageBand is also easy to use once you work out how to extend the recording time. There are other apps and there may be apps you find easier to use. Sometimes it comes down to how you operate on your device. All of them made clear recordings and that is what you want: a clear, strong recording of your voice. I hope developers would consider the use of carts in the apps suitable for education, at least as a view option for teachers and students. It really is more classroom friendly.
