Sonoma Wire Works has a new version of GuitarJack that will work with iPads and newer iPhones in the pipeline, but this version only works with the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and the second and third generation iPod touch.
However, in anticipation of the new product, the asking price has been reduced to a bargain $49 from the original $99.
Solidly built and connecting via the dock, the GuitarJack has two inputs (1/4-inch mono and 1/8-inch stereo) that can be used simultaneously to record both an instrument and mic.
Various input options are available via a software control panel that offers, among other things, high or low impedance for the 1/4-inch input and adjustment of the analog input level before it is digitised.
GuitarJack works well and will reward you with good quality sounds, provided you have a compatible device. If you don’t you’ll have to look elsewhere, or wait for the new model.
The Bottom Line
We like: Compact size; solidly engineered
We dislike: This version is only compatible with older iPhone and iPod models
