How does Spire Studio work with Spire Pro ?
Spire Studio pairs wirelessly with the Spire app. Capture instruments or vocals in real time, use the built in effects, and then edit, mix, add more effects, and publish/share within the free app or within Spire Pro.Spire Pro is a subscription that unlocks new, exclusive features in the iOS app. Some of these features include cloud-based audio cleanup to remove background noise and vocal pops/plosives, effects that can be added to tracks after you record, a random effects generator to boost your inspiration, and that’s just to name a few. We are working to continuously add new features and content to Spire Pro.

Spire Pro utilizes cloud-based processing to get your final mix and certain dsp-heavy effects sounding professional and polished.
