Easily create professional sounding podcasts and radio on the go, from anywhere - using only your iPhone or iPad.    

Your show is automatically mixed and mastered while it’s being recorded.  Focus your time and energy on being creative, instead of doing post-production work.  

Backpack is the sequel to bossjock studio,  from the same developer, and based upon years of refinement  and user feedback.   A must-have app for podcasters and radio DJs - both beginner and pro.


- Record your voice while triggering sounds live - intros, background music,  and  sound effects.   Sounds automatically adjust volume in real time.   No need for multitrack or post production software.   Recording your show becomes a creative live performance!

- A powerful soundboard with unlimited pages of soundpads.   Scroll pads to the  left and a new  empty page appears -  ready to go!   Reposition sounds, or pin sounds to a specific pad to appear on each page.  Configure the size, color, and behavior of each pad as needed.   Swipe the pads vertically to live mix the volume.

-  Import sounds into the soundboard from anywhere - iCloud, dropbox, google drive, your music library, email, even import directly from other apps.  

- Studio quality compression, limiting, and eq algorithms are  automatically applied to your mix live for a loud, studio quality mastered sound.  

- Encodes to all popular formats, mp3, wav, m4a,
aiff, and video.

- Publish recordings directly to  iCloud, dropbox, Facebook, youtube, an FTP,  Libsyn,  or open in any app on your phone that accepts audio or video.

- Full VoiceOver compatibility for visually impaired producers .    

- Battery and cpu optimization.  Records in compressed audio to save 90% of the drive space space of other mixing apps. (optional)

- Inter-app audio and audiobus support allow you to stream to other  apps.  

- Unrivaled hardware support. Backpack works with all usb / external mics like the Apogee Mic, IK Multimedia iRig Mic Cast and Blue Mikey.   4 channel usb mixer support for Focusrite mixers.    Mix the left and right channels together or disable the iOS built in gain control (AGC) via the settings panel.
