Some of you may know The Piano Guy from PBS, he's kind of like the Bob Ross for musicians. I really respect him and he is now available in App form!
He's got 4 apps out today that teach you how to play some classics on the Piano, based on the DVD series of the same name. Beyond just learning the notes, he offers lots of tips and advice for mastering the piano.
So far you can get his 1-on-1 instructions for Jinglebells, I Left My Heart in San Francisco, Imagine, and 100 Years.
Here is the sneak peek at 100 Years, by Five for Fighting.
AmenBreak Generator, from Loop Twister developer WAVEFORMS, has always been a fun-but-not-so-functional app. It has been featured here a couple of times when it was free. I hope you snagged it then, because it just got useful today!
High-quality STEREO sound with sample interpolation
Update: It just got pulled from iTunes! I've contacted the developer, Jacek Dojwa, and he said there was a serious crashing bug so he had to pull it immediately. Apple won't let you revert to older versions on iTunes, so he had to pull the whole app for the time being.
I'm excited about this one! I've had a lot of fun with it in the past, but now recording and all of the extra goodies make this compelling!
Drakenberg was live at Art of Sound, in Stockholm last week, and just posted a video of his booth. Although I doubt many of you will sit through the 2 hour duration, the first minute gives you an idea of what this guy is up to! iPad's are scattered all over, an iPhone is strapped to his wrist and he's got an old analog phone for his cue monitoring.
This guy is like a cyclone of technology, anything in his path is consumed and made a part of his set.
