Become a Rock Star–Record Your Own Music

Using the iPhone or iPod Touch to record and mix your own music

Since my very first generation iPod, I've wished for a way to integrate my favorite music player with my hobby—recording my own music. When the iPhone and its accessories exploded onto the scene, the ability to record directly on the device was finally realized. But how well does it compare to more traditional recording methods?

What the iPhone’s Sound Capabilities Can Do for Your Projects

Quality audio will enhance the user experience

One of the most overlooked aspects of the iPhone is its ability to playback uncompressed, CD quality audio. Apple has managed to squeeze even more quality and volume out of the tiny speakers on the newer 
iPhone3GS. Also, most people are unaware of the 3D positional sound feature incorporated into the original iPhone and what it actually does. This feature allows the developer to simulate moving sounds and have them play anywhere in three-dimensional space around the listener. For example, if a game developer needs to have a jet fly by the left side of the player, they can use the positional sound feature to place it there. Other devices can do this, but Apple makes it a lot easier for the developer.
