StudioTrack is another 8 track recorder that focuses on simplicity rather than an abundance of overwhelming options. It has a clean and intuitive design and a decent amount of post recording options to help mix and master your creations. Since the app is aimed for those that already have their own music gear (read: guitars, amps, preamps,etc.) you won't find any virtual instruments to tool around with, but the clean design and user-friendly interface will allow you to focus on your music rather than getting consumed by overly complicated functions. This may not be the ultimate recording option for most, but for those looking to sketch out their ideas before going big, StudioTrack is a nice choice.

App Store Description
StudioTrack is a multitrack recorder and songwriting tool for musicians who want to capture musical ideas and record songs on their iPad. StudioTrack works with the iPad built-in microphone and headphones and most iPad audio interfaces (Sonoma’s GuitarJack Stage or StudioJack Mini recommended). iTunes File Sharing allows StudioTrack recordings to be downloaded to any desktop computer. Tracks can then be loaded into any recording software (DAW) to continue working on songs.
