PR Musikmesse: Free Taylor Guitars EQ iOS App Adds a Tuner and GuitarJack Model 2 Controls

Frankfurt, Germany - March 21, 2012 - Sonoma Wire Works has added a free, high-visibility tuner and the GuitarJack Model 2 control panel to the Taylor EQ iOS app: an input EQ for enhancing the sound of a Taylor guitar when played through GuitarJack on an iOS device. Players can select from a range of EQ presets that complement Taylor's signature guitar body shapes, including the Grand Auditorium, Grand Symphony, Grand Concert, Dreadnought, T5, or the new GS Mini. Each EQ preset was custom designed by Taylor Guitars' engineers to optimize the tone of each body shape for use with the GuitarJack. Players can also create a custom tone for any guitar by using the six-band parametric equalizer in Advanced EQ mode, and play along to their favorite songs by launching Taylor EQ while the iPod app is playing.

While the Taylor EQ app will work with most iOS guitar adapters and any acoustic guitar, it is optimized for use with the GuitarJack and Taylor guitars equipped with the company's Expression System(r) for the highest quality sound. Taylor EQ is a free app that includes the GuitarJack control panel, which allows users to configure the GuitarJack settings and levels, then quit to launch a third party app. GuitarJack will retain the current settings and levels even when the iOS device goes to sleep or the GuitarJack is disconnected. Most Taylor EQ features are also included in FourTrack to enhance recordings of Taylor guitars or any acoustic guitar.

Taylor EQ's GuitarJack Control Panel now allows users to adjust the input settings and modes for both GuitarJack Model 1 and Model 2. GuitarJack is a high quality interface that connects a wide range of instruments, microphones, and other audio hardware to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Select 1/4-inch line in, stereo 1/8-inch line in, or use both inputs for simultaneous voice and instrument recording onto two tracks at once when used with an app that supports those features. GuitarJack's 1/8-inch stereo line/headphone output offers increased drive for headphones. GuitarJack features Lo-Z and Hi-Z modes, 60 dB of continuous level control, a 12 dB pad for 72 dB of adjustment, a 24-bit AD/DA converter, and high quality sound. GuitarJack is available from Sonoma Wire Works, Taylor Guitars, and select dealers worldwide: http://www.sonomawireworks.com/guitarjack
