Multitrack Recorder for iOS
FourTrack is one of the most used and beloved music apps on iOS. Below is a sampling of some of the top reviews of FourTrack.
The New Hotness: FourTrack Audio Recorder for iPhone, iPod touch
"The FourTrack app is the work of Sonoma Wire Works... After a few days of pre-release testing, we've seen that this is a solid, functional app, well worth the $10 asking price for musicians and anyone else who messes around with audio, despite -- or even because of -- its rudimentary, four-track-like functionality. It's stable, easy to use and useful."
This Week in iPhone Apps
"Remember how Keith Richards always said he recorded the riff to Satisfaction on a hotel answering machine? Well, now, budding Keefs can multi-track their sudden inspirations for songs about not getting sufficiently laid. FourTrack offers all the controls you would want for a basic deck, has no track length limit, and can sync via wi-fi to import you recordings into Garage Band or Pro Tools. Awesome. It's $10."
iPhoning It In
"My favorite of the bunch is FourTrack, which provides solid functionality and is the only one of the 4-track apps with pan controls. It also lets you upload tracks to your computer as WAV files (or directly to the company's RiffWorks software for Mac and Windows) using Wi-Fi sync."
The 88 Records Entire Song on Their iPhone
"Who needs expensive recording equipment anymore? That's what Adam Merrin, the keyboardist for indie rock trio The 88 thought when he read about FourTrack, which lets you record music directly into the iPhone. The 88 Tuesday released "Love Is the Thing" (iTunes) ), a new song recorded directly onto the iPhone. The tune was recorded at Zimitti's Los Angeles house. The trio (guitars, keyboards and drums) used the iPhone mic for each instrument, plus four-part harmony, which is displayed on the bands "making of" video on YouTube.

"FourTrack is a deceptively simple-looking multitrack recorder and mixing console. If you're a songwriter looking for a way to sketch multi-instrumental song ideas on the go, FourTrack acts as a fully baked portable recording studio."
iPhone Apps: The New Assistant Engineer
"Offering pan controls, FourTrack lets you upload tracks to your computer as WAV files (or directly to the company's RiffWorks software for Mac and Windows) using Wi-Fi sync. Recording at 16-bit/44.1kHz, a clip light ensures that input levels do not cause distortion while calibrated meters monitor record and playback level. A Slide to Record feature prevents overwriting of tracks; track length is unlimited. Other features include an "onboard" compressor/limiter and the ability to bounce tracks, duplicate songs, internal metronome and packaged sounds, including three beats by drummer Jason McGerr (of Death Cab for Cutie) on his signature Ludwig kit recorded in his Seattle-based studio, Two Sticks Audio."
What I'm Excited About by Trey Anastasio
"I'm obsessed with this recording app on my iPhone - the Sonoma Wire Works FourTrack. It's like you have a superpowerful studio in your pocket. I can record basically anywhere."
"Smartphone music apps seem to be catching on with both artists and producers in the studio. While making Leticia Wolf's debut EP in Nashville in 2008, producer/engineer Mark Hornsby used Sonoma Wire Works' FourTrack, a 4-channel multitrack app containing a hardware interface. Wolf quickly recorded and e-mailed Hornsby a small vocal part to replace a Pro Tools session file that had become corrupted in his studio computer."
