We’re not all about iPhone applications here, promise – they’re just becoming ever more interesting, we think, but this one’s been attracting so much attention, Four Track for iPhone – a multitrack audio recorder for the iPhone and iPod touch.
FourTrack is a songwriting and practice tool for singers, guitar players, piano players and other musicians who want to capture musical ideas and record songs on their iPhone. “Plug in a microphone, arm a track, record, and repeat,” the developers say.
The app works with the iPhone built-in microphone, a headset mic, or an iPod touch with a third-party mic and headphones. WiFi sync allows FourTrack recordings to be downloaded to any desktop computer with a browser. Tracks can then be loaded into any recording software (DAW) to continue working on songs.
