GuitarJack connects a wide range of instruments, microphones, and other audio hardware to the iPod touch (2nd and 3rd generation), iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G via 1/4 inch instrument and 1/8 inch stereo mic/line inputs.
Addressing the most frequent request from musicians who use FourTrack, GuitarJack makes both level control and input monitoring possible when using a GuitarJack enhanced app. FourTrack has been updated to include a GuitarJack control panel, where users can select an input and set the recording level. FourTrack 4.0 includes the new TaylorEQ Song Tool, which allows Taylor Guitar players to hear and adjust the tone of their guitars playing through the GuitarJack using EQ settings custom designed by Taylor Guitars. A free TaylorEQ app with similar features, including a GuitarJack control panel, is coming soon.
GuitarJack works with most third party audio apps like tuners, amp models and other recording apps.
Note: GuitarJack Model 1 is not compatible with iPhone 4, iPad™ or iPod touch 4th generation. The fact that it’s a higher-end device and that it’s got built-in obsolescence is going to make it a hard sell for a lot of people.

iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G are compatible only in airplane mode, so they will display the following message: “This accessory is not optimized for this iPhone. You may experience noise caused by cellular interferance and a descrease in cellular signal strength.” Sonoma Wire Works recommends that you turn on airplane mode whenever recording on an iPhone.
