Developer Woojijuice has announced Hokusai – a new multi-track audio editor for the iOS.

Here’s what they have to say about Hokusai:

Hokusai is a multi-track audio editor — like a word-processor for sound. It’s for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, subtly adjusting its interface to fit the different devices.
