Minneapolis, MN (April 30, 2010) – Audiofile Engineering, a leading audio software developer for Mac, has released Backline Calc 2.0, an update to their professional music calculator app for Apple iPhone and iPod touch. Backline Calc is an indispensible tool for musicians, music students and teachers, DJs, audio and video engineers and broadcast technicians, featuring more than 20 calculators and converters to cover virtually any musical situation, conveniently written for Apple’s iPhone OS.

“Playing, teaching, practicing or writing music, mixing live sound and producing music all involve calculations and conversions of musical and technical data,� says Matthew Foust of Audiofile Engineering. “Backline Calc lets you calculate musical, acoustic, video and even electrical data quickly and easily, so you can get on with the music and not the math.�
