The Road to Macworld | iWorld 2012 includes a talk with Douglas Wright of Sonoma Wire Works about the iOS music apps and hardware that they will be demonstrating at the show. Doug talks about how they let you record anywhere the mood strikes, what you can do with the tracks, and even cites an example of a commercially released recording that was done impromptu in a sushi restaurant. Reading is one thing but doing is another, and Doug let’s you know how you can play (literally) with their products on the show floor.
The Road to Macworld is a special MacVoices series produced in partnership with Macworld to preview some of the exhibitors and presentations at Macworld | iWorld 2012 in San Francisco from
January 26 – 28 at the Moscone Convention Center.

He founded Sonoma Wire Works in 2003 and co-created the RiffWorks guitar recording software with InstantDrummer, effects, RiffLink online music collaboration, and the RiffWorld.com online community. RiffWorks has received multiple awards for performance and innovation, including a NAMM Best in Show Trendsetter Award.

In 2010, Sonoma launched their first hardware product, the GuitarJack accessory for iOS.
