Guitar effects-and-amp modeler JamUp Pro is down to $10. This is as good as it gets. They've had a lot of sales in the past, but they never drop below $10. Although I haven't used any of the guitar apps, I know this one is iOS Musician's favorite.
Keith Merrow was joined by Nevermore's Jeff Looomis for an epic bit of metal in this JamUp promo!
MATRIXSYNTH pointed out a helpful BeatMaker 2 tutorial, from professional sample and preset designer App-Sound. Bringing new life to your drums! By automating parameters, you can drastically change the character of your drum kit.
Tip for BeatMaker 2: Use Parameter Control of Drum Machine for Beat Programming. A short tutorial with some examples. All samples are taken from "Electronic Beat". http://www.app-sound.com/BeatMaker2
In a move which will seem treacherous to some, Jordan Rudess has done an amazing Windows 8 demo on the 27" Lenovo.
For approximately 3 times the price of the iPad, you get nearly 3 times the screen! The new Lenovo A720 has 10-point multitouch and plays so well with Jordan's MorphWiz. This is not running the stripped down Windows RT either, as the processor in here is one of the beefiest from Intel's i7 line. With 8 Gigs of RAM and over a Terabyte of storage, it could easily run a full-fledged DAW.
I'm not sold on this All-In-One PC idea, I like to be able to upgrade, and would personally rather have an independent multitouch monitor. That said, I really like the idea of this thing as a grown up tablet. The future is now!
Thanks to Sean, over at iOS Musician, for pointing out the video. I hope he'll be able to find a new domain name!
