I've used RecForge 2, for 100s of hrs of recording mostly speech off of my radio boombox. But it has NOT been updated in over a year and all of my recordings have disappeared with the last Android upgrade to Android 12. Nothing on Android is aware of any of those recordings I can't get to them. It was once excellent, the best, it even had a working operator manual just like real programs. Now it's destructive I don't think a single recording can been made with RecForge II.

The once great recorder software has lived to become rotten... maybe it was purchased from the original dev by to be monetized harder, but something is off. If you can avoid updates for it, definitely do. Don't fall for the BS excuses for feature removals, guarantee they come back but only as paid features or as a new app. 👎 I don't begrudge the original dev compensation but the one time pro purchase already had ads stacked onto it, now it's trying to extract more money. Not worth it.

Edit: It's been 6 weeks without a word from the developer, and nothing seems to have changed. It looks like the developer just said "screw you" to users. This had been my go-to app to quickly record music ideas for later. I used the original one with little problem, and this one without much trouble until the recent update. Now, everything I had recorded has disappeared (backed it up, fortunately), I can't record anything new, and it seems like everything just stopped working altogether.
