Connect Instruments, Stereo Line Inputs and Microphones via the iOS Device Dock Connector
Sonoma Wire Works, makers of the FourTrack iOS app, has released the GuitarJack audio accessory for compatible iOS devices. 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 is priced at $199 MSRP.
