Free App Enhances Guitars Played Through GuitarJack
Taylor Guitars EQ iOS app dials in acoustic tones 21/10/10
Sonoma Wire Works and Taylor
Guitars have teamed up to create and release the free Taylor EQ app:
an input EQ for enhancing the sound of a Taylor guitar when played
through GuitarJack on an iOS device. Here's what they have to say about it...
Players can select from a range
of EQ presets that complement Taylor's signature guitar body shapes,
including the Grand Auditorium, Grand Symphony, Grand Concert,
Dreadnought, T5, or the new GS Mini. Each EQ preset was custom
designed by Taylor Guitars' engineers to optimize the tone of each
body shape for use with the GuitarJack. Players can also create a
custom tone for any guitar by using the six-band parametric equalizer
in Advanced EQ mode, and play along to their favorite songs by
launching Taylor EQ while the iPod app is playing.
While the Taylor EQ app will work with most iPhone guitar adapters
and any acoustic guitar, it is optimized for use with the GuitarJack
and Taylor guitars equipped with the company's Expression System(r)
for the highest quality sound. The Taylor EQ is the first free app to
include the GuitarJack control panel, which allows users to configure
the GuitarJack settings and levels. Most Taylor EQ features are
built-in to FourTrack to enhance recordings of Taylor guitars or any
GuitarJack was announced earlier this year and 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.
Pricing and Availability:
The Taylor EQ app is available as a free
download from iTunes.
GuitarJack is currently available
for purchase at Taylor Guitars, Sonoma Wire Works, Sweetwater, and
other select dealers at
the suggested retail price of $199. More information:
