SongCatcher is the first fully functional recording studio environment on the iPhone platform, designed around capturing creativity at the moment of inspiration! It is the first app to feature both Audio and MIDI recording, making it the ultimate solution for the songwriters who are looking for a sketchpad.
SongCatcher comes with two interfaces, which are tailored specifically for professional musicians, and enthusiastic amateurs, or anyone who likes having fun with music.
