SNAMM10: Connect Instruments And Mics To Your iPhone


Sonoma Wire Works, makers of the FourTrack recording app, has announced the GuitarJack audio device. GuitarJack connects a wide range of instruments, microphones, and other audio hardware to iPod touch(R) (2nd and 3rd generation), iPhone(R) 3GS* and iPhone 3G* via 1/4 inch instrument and 1/8 inch stereo mic/line inputs. Here's what Sonoma have to say...
Addressing the most frequent request from musicians who use FourTrack, GuitarJack makes both level control and input monitoring possible when using a GuitarJack enhanced app. Sonoma Wire Works is also developing the TaylorEQ app for the GuitarJack.
