Sonoma Wire Works Launches GuitarJack


Sonoma Wire Works, makers of the FourTrack iOS app, has released the GuitarJack audio accessory for compatible iOS devices, as announced at the Summer NAMM show. Here's their press release with all the details...
GuitarJack connects a wide range of instruments, microphones, and other audio hardware to the iPod touch® (2nd and 3rd generation), iPhone® 3GS* and iPhone 3G* via 1/4 inch instrument and 1/8 inch stereo mic/line inputs. GuitarJack Model 1 is not compatible with iPhone 4, iPad™ or iPod touch 4th generation. 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. FourTrack has been updated to include a GuitarJack control panel, where users can select an input and set the recording level. FourTrack 4.0 includes the new TaylorEQ Song Tool, which allows Taylor Guitar players to hear and adjust the tone of their guitars playing through the GuitarJack using EQ settings custom designed by Taylor Guitars. A free TaylorEQ app with similar features, including a GuitarJack control panel, is coming soon. GuitarJack works well with most third party audio apps like tuners, amp models and other recording apps.
GuitarJack Features:
  • 1/4 inch instrument input with configurable pad, Lo-Z and Hi-Z modes
  • 1/8 inch stereo mic/line input with pad, normal and boost modes
  • Each input has 60dB of continuous level control
  • 1/8 inch stereo output with increased drive for headphones
  • Sleek and rugged metal shell
  • Dock connector compatible only with iPod touch (2nd and 3rd generation), iPhone 3GS* and iPhone 3G*
GuitarJack Controls in FourTrack Allow Recording in these Modes:
  • Instrument (1/4 inch) mono
  • Mic/Line (1/8 inch) mono, dual-mono or stereo
  • Both inputs, with the instrument input and the mic/line input (right channel) recording to separate tracks
*iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G are compatible only in airplane mode, so they will display the following message: "This accessory is not optimized for this iPhone. You may experience noise caused by cellular interferance and a descrease in cellular signal strength." Sonoma Wire Works recommends that you turn on airplane mode whenever recording on an iPhone.
