No One Can Play Music

The way I record all of my videos is with a Cydia (Jailbreak) app called Display Recorder. I have no idea why Apple won't approve it for the App Store, but they won't so I've got to be Jailbroken in order to do anything. Due to a series of collosal fuck-ups and the way Apple signs iOS versions, I had to do a "Restore" which upgraded my iPad 2 to 5.1. As there is no Jailbreak for A5 Devices on 5.1, I have been imprisoned.

This blows. I have been keeping to my schedule of a new Everyone Can Play Music to every other week, but today that streak has ended. I will have to indefinitely postpone the series, but it will return the Friday following the release of a 5.1 Jailbreak for iPad 2. There are other ways of recording the screen, but they are either somewhat expensive and very expensive. Neither of which will show my finger touches the way that Display Recorder does, and I feel that is a really important part of the videos.

In lieu of a new video, and to demonstrate why I don't just record over-the-shoulder with a cam, please enjoy my first tutorial! Viewers who have been watching my series up to this point should be able to follow it, and hopefully get something out of it since I go over stuff we haven't gotten to in ECPM.

Hi Discchord,
Sorry to hear about the problem. I enjoy your videos quite a bit. Very no-nonsense and the video is always superb. Hope you get the jailbreak soon. I'm surprised that there is nothing reasonably priced to do the live capture.

Looking forward to more videos soon. Maybe you can blog in the meantime?

Another option - maybe do some reviews of SunVox in the meantime? Easy to capture the desktop version which is more or less identical.

I get a lot of requests to do SunVox, and I am tempted because it looks like they have an astounding synth engine, but I hate Trackers. My head just doesn't want to fit into that space. I feel like I should recuse myself from reviewing it, so that my own prejudices (and history of fighting with Trackers of Yore) don't impact a review.

I may do something with it at some point if we go through a dry-spell on app releases!
