Cool mini studio found and used!!]]> And now when I've got this little cool interface that allows me to use some really good mics, the quality of the sound is staggering!(for a phone, that is) :mrgreen:

More to come!

Seems to be an awesome sound quality, sounds very natural and clear. Been doing some tracks with a double-bass for starters.
Will add a lot of acoustic instruments..

And I can reveal that the project not only aims to record with the phone but the songs are a bit unusual, hehe.. :mrgreen:
I've gone back to my own "roots", old hard rock.. :shock:

The idea is to get the music from my youth to sound more like the rootsy blues I'm playing now, delta style acoustic.. O::)

So far it feels very inspiring, completely new and rootsy versions of songs such as:
Walking in the shadow of the blues by White Snake,
Stormbringer and Soldier of fortune by Deep Purple,
Back in Black by AC/DC,
Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath, etc, etc... :D

I'm having a blast arranging and recording, folks!

More info and songs to come..

A bit strange to be able to carry the studio around in the pocket, hehe...

There's the gadget called Guitar Jack which allows you to use two inputs at the same time! I'll try some different mics and see what happens..

I'm waiting to get the jack right now from the US.. :mrgreen:

I'm really, really interested to see if I can get the quality enough to make an entire album using the iPhone as my "studio" haha! :roll: :wink:

Made this video clip with the two songs I've recorded so far, sounds pretty good for a telephone!

Sounds like it would be perfect for me. Im still at the beganing stages of my music life[ saldy I started late, and dont have the time I would have when I was younger :| ], so Im not looking to record to play to others... but just when I get a good tune going durning a pratice, or a good riff, or something, I can record it so I dont forget it.

Not so much more hiss but I've managed to get egg-shaker, foot-stomping and two backing voices into the mix! :D
Everything just to test the possibilities for recording with the iPhone....!!

Only had to adjust the panning and volume on each channel, then press the button BOUNCE, hey presto, you have two new channels to play with ..

Listen to iPhonemazing Grace # 2 here:

Foot-stomping was a high-tech thing, put down the phone on some bubble wrap on the floor beside the foot and stomped away, haha!

Vocal choirs were recorded in the kids room while I looked after our 11 month old dughter ..
There were a few retakes due to all the toys that were thrown to the floor, followed by laughter, hehe .. :mrgreen:
