GuitarJack is coming …

A new audio interface from Sonoma. Not only does the device look good, but with GuitarJack ‘enhanced’ apps too this could be amazing!


Sonoma’s GuitarJack page describes it like this:

The in-app songtool gives you tons of options to configure the GuitarJack. Record from both inputs at the same time, set into monitor levels, set Impedance, Range, and more!

Here are the full specifications.

  1. This looks very promising, and not a million miles away from the “fantasy line-in device” I mentioned in my e-mail to palm-sounds the other week.

    Hopefully I've misread the proposed price ($199!!!) and am unsure why it is incompatible with iPhone4…?

  2. Looks lovely. I notice no iPad support mentioned. Wonder if this means it's true about the ipad dock connector not supporting audio in?

  3. So it supports my mic… and looks really good, and what i have been looking for for a long time. But 200 dollars? what a rip off. FAIL.
