Final Design

We are audio enthusiasts who started the SnapRecorder project to solve a problem that we personally faced. We wanted to make audio recordings echo and noise free without spending thousands of dollars at recording studios. The end result is a portable recording booth made with tripe layer acoustic design 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!

We are experienced professionals who are passionate about using technology to solve everyday problems. We have handled high value projects in past and feel confident to deliver SnapRecorders to our backers within the promised time-frame.

We support local manufacturing. In order to make SnapRecoder in the USA, we have partnered 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 this journey in the 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 the funds will go towards.

Materials: purchase of acoustic foam, fabric, middle layer, etc.

Manufacturing: production of SnapRecorders

App development: deliver final version of SnapRecorder iOS and Android app

Shipping and packaging: packaging and shipping of SnapRecorders to your door steps

Risks and challenges

We released the first version of SnapRecorder in 2013 and learned quite a bit about improving this product. We went back to drawing board and figured out a way to lower our manufacturing cost while improving product quality. As a result, we are passing down the cost saving to our backers. Furthermore, we were able to negotiate a lower MOQ with local manufacturing facilities. The combination of reduced cost and lower MOQ have allowed us to start production with 100 or more SnapRecorders. We have also secured $2,500 funding from a family member to assist with this project. With the new changes and reduced cost/MOQ, we strongly believe we can bring SnapRecorder to market.

To ensure local manufacturing facility will be able to produce SnapRecorders within the agree upon time-frame, we are going to have legal contract in place. Furthermore, we have selected two other local manufacturing facilities as a backup. If needed, we can also split up production between multiple facilities to ensure timely delivery of your orders.
