"I'm obsessed with the FourTrack recording app - a super powerful studio in your pocket." Trey Anastasio (Phish guitarist) in Rolling Stone Magazine
• Multitrack recording: use bounce for more than 4 tracks
• 16 bit, 44.1 kHz recording quality
• Pan Control: move tracks from left to right

I bought this app and didn’t with with iPhone 8 and iOS 11
Not happy to have paid money for an app that doesn’t work with my iPhone 8 and iOS 11. Unable to locate the mix file on my phone.
10/2017 update: it’s essentially worthless.
After switching to a GuitarJack 2 USB with an iPhone 5s and an iPad Air 2, I got the interface control panel working semi-consistently under iOS 10. I did not bother using the app for anything else and recorded with TwistedWave instead.
Well, that must have been the honeymoon. Since the update to iOS 11, the GJ is a brick half the time. Which makes the embedded control panel, and all of the app as far as I am concerned, junkware. Like a shiny Cadillac with no engine, it has everything you want except what makes it go.
It is impossible to predict when the goddamn interface from Sonoma Wireworks will be recognized by the goddamn software from Sonoma Wireworks. If for any voodoo reason it returns from the dead, most likely the next time your iOS device locks up or you simply breathe on it, FourTrack will go all Alzheimer’s on you and report that there is no interface connected. And if you think GuitarTone will help you there, forget it. Its control panel is just as dead inside.
Meanwhile, these guys keep pushing shiny new toys and asking more money for them. And of course when the old toy breaks they will be suggesting you buy the latest to ‘solve’ your problem. Which just happens to result one hundred percent from their failure to manage their own software driver for their own devices, which are all supposed to comply with a stable USB audio standard. Yeah, right.
A word of advice to would-be iOS recordists: go to a professional company that supports its products, tests its products for iOS compatibility and explicitly warns you when they stop supporting a specific interface under a specific operating system. People like Apogee, Sound Devices — even boutique operations like H2 Designs. With pros, you know what you’re getting — they don’t allow their products to turn into paperweights after a couple of years because they refuse to do what it takes to keep them working for their existing customers.
Oh, and BTW, I know one way to get that bricked GuitarJack to work: plug it into a seven year-old iPhone 4 running Apple’s own abandonware, iOS 7. See? I raided the smartphone family vault. That stuff is ready for Halloween.
SWW did some heavy marketing around this app, which is presented as the ideal companion to its family of GuitarJack audio interfaces. Oh, the friendly reviews, the salesmanship. You'd think it would be rock solid. Well, at this point, it's just plain unusable.
With a firmware upgrade to run the converters at 24-bit/48kHz, you'd expect their own software to match the full hardware spec? Nope. WAV files generated by this app out of the GJ2 (30-pin connector into an iPhone 4) are currently 16-bit/44.1kHz instead of the 24-bit/48kHz the ADC was actually delivering at one point. Good luck finding a setting anywhere in the control panel (which they go to great lengths never to release as a separate app), to fix that.
But wait, there's more -- I mean less. Now FourTrack, well, can't track. Set up to record with the GJ2, and it just stops in the middle of things. Just like that. End of file. No warning except if you are monitoring. But by then it's too late anyway.
When other apps like Røde Mic went to hell, I could still fall back on FT. Not any more. The thing can't even use the company's own hardware. And it was just about the only one with acceptable monitoring.
Fortunately, there is still Hindenburg, or TwistedWave, or even Hokusai. Despite monitoring and replay glitches, these apps actually record with the GJ2. TW will even set the ADC correctly to 48kHz if you wish. A proper 24/48 audio file is just an export away.
As long as there is a semi-working control panel (and "semi" is mostly what it is, just compare the three embedded versions that can't even operate identically between three SWW apps), you don't have a paperweight. For now.
