Yes we will ship worldwide from our headquarters in Amsterdam.
The fulfilment costs are heavily bound to changing fees, therefore we will determine the exact shipping costs at the time of shipment (March 2023). We estimate the shipping price around €10 – €30.
You can switch Howler between 2 modes:
a) Recording straight to a swappable microSD-card inside Howler (not included).
b) Livestream with your phone (Android, iOS), or other devices, i.e. laptops (macOS, Windows).
Howler in livestream mode functions as an audio interface and SD-card reader. you can use it to record the audio straight to your phone with help of a recording app, i.e. n-Track Studio and you can copy the recording that you made before.
No, currently Howler’s tech is unable to livestream and record at the same time. However, we do have plans to create an app over 2023 that will be able to do this.
The audio is streamed to your phone as 24-bit, 48 kHz audio. The actual streamed audio format depends on the app that you use.
Yes, Howler is compatible with both iOS and Android.
- Livestream iOS 13 and higher*
- File transfer iOS 14 and higher*
- USB-C compatible Android phones
We have tested Howler with Twitch, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok and YouTube. Note: on some phones it is necessary to an app such as Lesser AudioSwitch to force Android to use Howler as an audio source.
To livestream with an Android phone, all you need is a USB-C to USB-C cable. To livestream with an iPhone, you will a USB OTG adapter and an USB-C to USB-A cable. We sell the adapter together with the cable as “iOS pack”.
Yes, Howler is also a standards compliant audio interface and SD card reader and compatible with any laptop.
In general, microSD-Cards with UHS speed class (or higher) will work. However, during testing we have found that some microSD cards work better than others. If you buy a microSD card via us, you are certain that it will work. Howler works with FAT32 and exFAT formatting.
If you want to connect your Howler to a USB-C device, such as an Android phone, or a laptop with USB-C, you only need the USB-C to USB-C cable. Most likely you will already have one at home!
If you want to be able to charge your Android phone while it is connected to your Howler, you need the Android pack which includes an USB OTG adapter and a USB-C cable.
If you want to connect your Howler to your iPhone, you will need the iOS pack. This includes an adapter and a USB-A to USB-C cable. This adapter also allows you to charge your iPhone while it is connected with your Howler.
We have tested with cards up to 256 GB but technically there is no reason why larger cards won’t work. Note: Windows will not allow you to format an SD card of larger than 32 GB in FAT32, so use exFAT instead, or use an external tool to format.
