    I just purchased this app yesturday and it is truely amazing! It gives you the core features of a real music and audio recording program. I still feel that it lacks some functionality in terms of settings and customization. It would be awesome if somehow with a 30Pin adapter to USB or FireWire which would allow you to connect to an interface such as the Profire 2626 by M-adio. This would allow you to theoretically record upto 16 tracks simultaneously, granted you had the interface and mics, and Multitrack 1.1 would have to grow significantly. This with some more work can be the next revolution in audio capture and production, self promotion and digital distribution. The program needs to have a better file management system, more options on export as recording quality, effects/loops(maybe as a plugin) and a better interface on the backside of the file system. It shows great promise and if they’re not careful they could change music forever!
