About

SnapRecorder is a PATENT PENDING portable recording studio, built with dual layer acoustic foam to significantly reduce echo and outside noises. SnapRecoder provides near studio quality recordings without spending thousands of dollars on recording studios. It is light and small enough for you to take it to your friends house or carry it around with you while on the move.

SnapRecorder allows you to professionally record your vocals anywhere by simply mounting it on your mic stand. SnapRecorder channels sound directly onto your mic and capturing all of the low and high frequencies contained in your voice. The end result is clear and defined voice every time you record. Our patent pending design prevents your mic from capturing ambient noises and room tone while reducing echo and other surrounding noises. It's lightweight, small and portable design allows you to take it and record anywhere. In other words, all of your recordings will sound like they were recorded in the same place.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional, SnapRecorder is the perfect solution for you to record songs, voice-overs, pod-casts...pretty much all your audio recording needs. We have the first prototype ready for production but we need your help kickstarters to bring SnapRecorder to life.

SnapRecorder is compatible with standard mic stand thread size of 5/8-27 so most likely it will work with your existing mic stand. We strongly recommend using a mic stand with tri-pod base.

Follow the simple steps below and you are ready to start recording:

  • Attach the large 6' extension to mic stand
  • Attach the small 3' extension to the large 6' extension
  • Place SnapRecorder on top of mic stand and push it down (make sure it is aligned properly before pushing it down)
  • Attach traditional microphone inside the SnapRecorder or use the Smartphone kit to start recording on your mobile phone

Don't have a mic stand? no problem. Order the Platinum Package and we will ship SnapRecorder with tri-pod mic stand and smartphone kit. Basically, everything you need to start recording immediately.

We support local manufacturing. In order to make SnapRecoder in the USA, we have partnered up with a local facility in Dallas, TX to produce SnapRecorder in mass quantities. We have already received sample orders to make sure their quality matches our expectations.

We started on this journey in summer of 2012. After going through many prototypes, we finally have the production ready version. However, we need to meet the Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) for the local manufacturing facility to start mass production. So, we need your help kickstarters to make SnapRecorder a reality. Below are some of the specific items your funds will go towards.

  • Dual layer foam: purchase of outer layer hard foam and inner layer soft foam
  • Manufacturing and assembly: actual manufacturing and assembly of SnapRecorders
  • App development (stretch goal): development and testing of iOS and Android app
  • Shipping and packaging: packaging and shipping of SnapRecorders to your door steps

We started the SnapRecorder project to solve a problem that we faced personally. We wanted to make audio recordings echo and noise free without spending thousands of dollars on recording studios. The end result is a portable recording studio made with dual layer acoustic foam which provides near studio quality recordings. SnapRecorder is small and light enough for you to take it to your friends house, keep it in your car or just carry it around with you. We hope you will join us in our journey to bring SnapRecorder to market!

Please support and help us spread the word (email, facebook, twitter or whatever you prefer). We will need as much help as possible. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and at our Website. Don't hesitate to contact us at info@snaprecorder.com for any questions or inquiries. Thanks in advance for supporting our project and helping us spread the word!

Risks and challenges

We have already selected a local manufacturer to mass produce SnapRecorder. The risk associated with mass production is if the local manufacturer will be able to complete the full order in the agreed upon time frame.

To overcome this risk, we are going to have a contract in place which will legally bind the manufacturer to produce all SnapRecorders in the agreed upon time frame. Furthermore, we have selected two other local manufacturing facilities as a backup if we need to split up production between multiple facilities to ensure timely delivery of your orders.
