Los Altos, CA – September 14, 2010  Sonoma Wire Works’ FourTrack
multitrack audio recorder for the iPhone® and iPod touch® has been
updated to 4.0 adding powerful new features including file import,
AudioCopy, input monitoring, the GuitarJackâ„¢ control panel and
Taylor EQ. FourTrack 4.0 empowers musicians to easily produce high
quality recordings wherever inspiration strikes.

FourTrack 4.0 New Features:

– File Import: Import audio into FourTrack by opening an audio email
attachment or by dragging audio files into FourTrack’s File Sharing
area under Apps in iTunes. Supports wav, mp3 and aiff formats.
FourTrack’s Sessions folder can now be dragged out of iTunes to the
desktop. These features require iOS 4.0 and iTunes 9.2 or above.

– AudioCopy: Copy a track or a mix in FourTrack. Name a copy to
easily identify it in the AudioCopy history list of up to 12 items
which includes audio previews. Paste to another track in FourTrack,
to another song in FourTrack, to any AudioPaste enabled app, and to
apps that support Apple’s general pasteboard.

– Input Monitoring: Use FourTrack’s settings tool to enable/disable
input monitoring. Input monitoring is enabled when a track is armed
and in either Pause or Record mode. Playback of existing tracks
overrides input monitoring. When input monitoring is on, sliders on
armed tracks are enabled and control the monitor mix.

– GuitarJack Control Panel – Adjust the input settings of the new
GuitarJack audio accessory for compatible iOS devices. Select from
1/4″, stereo 1/8″ or both inputs simultaneously, and adjust input
levels with 60dB of analog gain control. FourTrack remembers
GuitarJack settings. Settings are maintained by the GuitarJack while
powered, and it can be used by most apps that do recording or
playback such as tuners, amp models, and more. When a stereo mode is
selected, tracks will arm in pairs (1&2 or 3&4).

– TaylorEQ – Sonoma Wire Works teamed with Taylor Guitars to create
an input EQ for enhancing the FourTrack recordings of Taylor Guitars
or any acoustic guitar. Select from a range of Taylor body styles in
basic mode, or select the Advanced tab to adjust the 6 band
parametric equalizer manually.

– ARM Optimized Audio Engine – Hand optimized assembly code makes
this the fastest running FourTrack release ever.

– Higher Resolution Graphics: Optimized for the iPhone 4 Retina
Display.
