New Software Turns Your iPhone Into A Four Track Audio Recorder

Nov 6th, 2008 | By | Category: iPhone, iPods & Portable Media Players, Podcasting Software

Sonoma Wire Works has launched FourTrack (App Store link), a multitrack audio recorder for the iPhone and iPod touch (2nd Generation).

FourTrack 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….or podcasts!

Note that FourTrack won’t let you record four tracks to the iPhone at the same time. That would require a four-channel audio interface for the iPhone…..which would be awesome.  

FourTrack retails for $9.99. 

FourTrack Features:

  • Track Count – 4
  • Track Length – unlimited
  • Recording Quality – 16 bit, 44.1 kHz
  • Calibrated Meters – accurately monitor record and playback levels
  • Recording Clip Lights – ensure input levels do not cause distortion
  • Calibrated Faders – accurately adjust playback level of each track
  • Pan Control – move tracks from left to right
  • Time Line – seek to anywhere in your song instantly
  • Shuttle Wheel – accurately move within your song
  • Slide-to-Record – prevents over-writing your tracks
  • Latency Compensation – accurate to within 1ms
  • Compressor-Limiter – automatically fattens sound of the output mix
  • Song List – unlimited song count
  • WiFi Sync – copy recordings to a desktop computer


Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch (2nd Generation). Requires iPhone 2.0 software update. iPod touch requires third party microphone (see developer website for recommendations).

    Why would you want 4 tracks of poor quality audio? Ya 16/44.1 but you are recording on the phones mic? Just something else to blow the money on.

    I have to say that I’m quite impressed by the mic on the iPhone. I recently attended a concert by the Philharmonia Orchestra and was able to capture some of the music played that evening. Okay it’s never going to be CD quality, but it was good enough to include a few snippets on a podcast episode. These sorts of recording software for the iPhone can turn out to be very useful.
