Multitrack Recording for iPad
While StudioTrack 1.5 is working well with iOS 6, please note these known issues with iOS 7. A fix for iOS is coming.
StudioTrack is a powerful songwriting tool designed exclusively for iPad. Works with the iPad built-in microphone and most audio input accessories. Sonoma's GuitarJack audio interface, which connects a wide variety of instruments and microphones to the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, is recommended for the most features and highest quality sound.
Record up to eight tracks on a lucious multitouch mixer with meters, faders and knobs. Control multiple parameters simultaneously, like an analog console. Rearrangable channels help you keep your tracks organized.
Choose from beats by celebrity drummer Jason McGerr or samples of live drums and percussion courtesy of Discrete Drums multitrack drum library. Time signatures include 3/4, 4/4, 6/8 and X/4 (unaccented beats that can be used to play 5 ,7, 9 and other odd meters).
Bounce & Mix
Bounce your tracks to a new song and keep expanding your work beyond eight tracks while maintaining all the original recordings. Then Mix down right on the device and use WifiSync to download the mix and the original tracks to a desktop computer.
Effects on every Track
StudioTrack has an effect rack on every channel which can be configured with a set of effects. Options include a tempo-synchronized double delay, a 4 band parametric EQ with Hi-Shelf, Hi-Peak, Lo-Peak and Lo-Shelf filters, a 1 band peaking parametric EQ and a compressor. The delay and 4 band EQ require more processing power, so they require both slots, while the 1 band EQ and compressor can be used together in any order.
StudioTrack includes a built-in Reverb with send knobs on every channel and a Reverb Return level on the master section. It also includes a 4 band parametric EQ and a stereo-linked master compressor to help you create the perfect mix for your style.
