I love my iPhone and especially keep an eye on the Music category of the apps store. If you have any Apple "i" device it's high time you start thinking about using it as a portable and very capable recording studio. All it takes is a simple wire interface between your iPhone and your guitar if you have an electric guitar, and if you're using acoustic you can use the built in headphone microphone.
Recently, the guitar app market has grown, and you can buy both interfaces to connect your guitar to your iPhone or iDevice in various ways, and app to process your guitar such as amps, effects, and multi-track recorders for the iPhone. I've evaluated and tested nearly all of the hardware and apps and continue to do so on a regular basis. Please subscribe to this blog in the right column by email or RSS to keep up with my latest updates, or just bookmark this page.
In this series of posts I'm giving you an overview of what you need to record, the types of apps out there you'll find interesting, and some things to consider when recording. Along the way I invite you to leave your feedback on each post. Let me know if there's anything I've missed, or anything you'd like to share that would be helpful to others. The more ideas we share the better!
I'm going to use "iPhone" to mean any Apple "i" device you have.
