Wowser. That’s a pricey app … tempting tho….

Age rating: 4+
What sort of four year old would have that much money?
Must make sure I clear this from iTunes before my kids accidently buy it!
@dancraggs Maybe it's not priced for the average audio geek, but I can see the appeal to newscorps.
@hazymat Ah wait, $50 for pro encoding for AAC. But still, that's not $400.
@hazymat "MP2,AAC, AAC-HE, AAC-HEV2,G711,G722,ULCC." MP2: as above. AAC, <$1/unit. G711/722: patents expired, if I recall. ULCC: Is that even a codec?
@niksargent You mean a live streaming pro portable recorder? Show me where!
@dancraggs MP2 isn't the only codec! Oh, and RTP/UDP low latency streaming? Cool.
@hazymat MP2? "For MPEG-2 Encoding Products in hardware or software, the royalty is US $2.50 from January 1, 2002 [..] for each encode unit"
shame it's overpriced - you can buy a pro portable recorder for 1/3 the price (with the hardware!)
@altabadger I don't think the price is excessive considering the licence fee for those codecs!
I think "4+" is the age rating...
The fact that there are no ratings for it under "Customer Ratings" and yet it is somehow rated 4+ in the description disturbs me a little... Not to mention that yes, $400 is a bit excessive for an iPhone app.
