Not familiar with the intricacies of this process -- mainly because we're not well heeled enough to actually, you know, own one of these things -- but this seems pretty badass. Evidently, there's an iPhone ap called Four Track that allows you to record sweet, sweet pop music from the comfort of, well, wherever it is you happen to be at the moment. At least that's the impression we get from watching this YouTube clip of the 88 apparently doing just that.
Near as we can tell, the individual tracks are saved as wav files that you can then feed into ProTools or Logic or whatever, then mixdown and upload to iTunes for download. Voila! The snake eats its tale. We've heard of dudes demoing songs on their iTouch, but have never heard of anyone actually making a finished recording. Have you recorded a song on your phone? Yeah? Send it. We'd love to hear it. And if you haven't, how about it? Make a track and send it to us. We'll post it in Freeloader. Whaddya say?

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
