Sonoma Wire Works have released v1.1 of Taylor EQ – their free guitar EQ app developed with Taylor Guitars for the iPhone. The update includes a high visibility tuner for fast and accurate tuning. Also, the GuitarJack Control Panel in Taylor EQ is now compatible with both GuitarJack Model 1 and Model 2.
Adjust input settings of Sonoma’s GuitarJack high quality interface that connects a wide range of instruments, microphones, and other audio hardware to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via 1/4-inch instrument and 1/8-inch stereo mic/line inputs. GuitarJack’s 1/8-inch stereo line/headphone output offers increased drive for headphones.
GuitarJack features Lo-Z and Hi-Z modes, 60 dB of continuous level control, a 12 dB pad for 72 dB of adjustment and an AD/DA converter for the highest quality sound. Levels set using Taylor EQ’s GuitarJack Control Panel remain set when you switch to compatible audio apps, like GarageBand, even if they do not include the GuitarJack Control Panel. Taylor EQ is also included in Sonoma’s FourTrack recording app, which, when used with GuitarJack, will allow you to record in stereo and use both inputs simultaneously to record onto two tracks at once.
Sonoma Wire Works and Taylor Guitars have teamed up to create and release the free Taylor EQ app: an input EQ for enhancing the sound of a Taylor guitar when played through GuitarJack on an iOS device. Players can select from a range of EQ presets that complement Taylor’s signature guitar body shapes, including the Grand Auditorium, Grand Symphony, Grand Concert, Dreadnought, T5, or the new GS Mini.
Each EQ preset was custom designed by Taylor Guitars’ engineers to optimize the tone of each body shape for use with the GuitarJack. Players can also create a custom tone for any guitar by using the six-band parametric equalizer in Advanced EQ mode, and play along to their favorite songs by launching Taylor EQ while the iPod app is playing.
