Band Records Entire Song On iPhone, Publishes It

A vast majority of iPhone applications may end up abandoned, but we know of at least one app that a Los Angeles-based band simply can't do without: FourTrack. As the iPhone continues to push the envelope of what's possible on a smartphone, the band--which goes by 'The 88'--has managed to record an entire track using Apple's smartphone. It's hard to believe, but it's true.

The app, which was crafted by Sonoma Wire Works, sparked an idea to jot down song ideas on the fly, and eventually the band simply used the 14 recorded tracks to create one of their published songs. The single is called "Love Is The Thing," and it's available now in the iTunes music store for $1. A video of the making process is posted below, and those interested to see how it sounds can catch a sample or make a purchase by visiting the band's website. The iPhone as a recording tool? Really, what will it do next?

A band could record an entire song into your telephone answering machine - It doesn't mean it's a practical tool for the art.

On the plus(?) side, it's portable... on the negative side, there's no way to use a high-quality mic with the program and it doesn't have many features found in free PC software.

In short: It's a gimmick to try to get their song heard, not a testimonial to the practicality of the software.

heheh.. yah. I think there's a negative part of my brain that kicks in when I see a technical accomplishment stories that originated in a marketing department. :p
