What is a Four Track Recorder?
Stereo tape recorders record two tracks at a time on a cassette. A four-track recorder allows you to record one track at a time while listening to the other three. This allows you to record a guitar part, then add a vocal part, then add a harmony, and so on. The Beatles recorded several albums using only four tracks. Four-track cassette recorders were the first affordable multi-track recorders for home musicians. Multitrack recording software, like GarageBand and Pro Tools, allow you to record many tracks, but the principle is the same. FourTrack (the iPhone app) gives you the simplicity of the old-school cassette four-track in an affordable and convenient package. With FourTrack in your pocket, you can record music anywhere at the moment of inspiration.
Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch(2nd Generation).
Requires iPhone 2.0 software update.
iPod touch requires a third party microphone (see
developer website for recommendations).
