PORTASTUDIO is based on – and nearly the same dimensions as – the TASCAM Porta One four-track cassette recorder that revolutionized recording in 1984. The PORTASTUDIO app records four tracks, one at a time, with VU meters and a cassette transport contributing a vintage vibe. When a production is complete, the app can mix your recording to a stereo track that appears in iTunes.
A four-position selector switch assigns which track PORTASTUDIO records to, and input trim and limiting are applied to the input before recording. Audio can be recorded form the iPad's built-in microphone or a microphone plugged into the headset jack. The iPad will record from the built-in microphone if standard headphones are plugged into the jack. Pan, level, high and low EQ are available for mixing, and mixes are saved as CD-quality WAV files inside iTunes.
Pricing and Availability:
PORTASTUDIO by TASCAM is available now on the iTunes App Store for $9.99.
Aren't there 16 and 24 track apps for around the same price ? Also UI looks like windows 95 ... not in a cool retro way either lol

Yes looks nice, but I saw an sneak preview of a 8 tracker from IK multimedia in the iPad Music/Apps groups on Facebook. It appeals more to me..
