News:Review: Zivix Jamstik MIDI guitar controller for iOS and OS X

Review: Zivix Jamstik MIDI guitar controller for iOS and OS X: "Aspiring musicians looking to learn to play guitar with the aid of lessons on their iPad, iPhone or Mac should check out the Zivix Jamstik, a small, convenient and unique MIDI controller that uses technology to offset the learning curve associated with learning an instrument."
Would like to try it but seems like the bridge and the neck are too close together for a guitar hero.

News:Director J.J. Abrams shows off Apple Watch onstage at 'Star Wars' event in California

Director J.J. Abrams shows off Apple Watch onstage at 'Star Wars' event in California: "This marks the second time in as many days that a bespoke Apple Watch has shown up on the wrist of a celebrity. Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld appeared with an Apple Watch Edition with a solid gold link bracelet on Wednesday.

A number of other celebrities, including Drake and Pharrell Williams, have been spotted with Apple Watches of their own in the days leading up to the device's public release. It's unclear what criteria Apple's worldwide product marketing department is using to decide which celebrities are granted early access."
It's Rollerblade-inspired marketing for the Cupertino.

News:Vince Clarke Launches Company, Announces Modular Synths | Emusician

Vince Clarke Launches Company, Announces Modular Synths | Emusician: "Depeche Mode, Yazoo, The Assembly, and Erasure all have two things in common: one, they were founded by legendary synth-pop Svengali Vince Clarke; two, they have enjoyed catchy Clarke-penned (or co-penned), synth-driven Top Ten hits in his native UK and beyond. In a noteworthy career spanning four decades and countless millions of records sold, the Ivor Novello Award-winning songwriter has had more hit singles than most of us have had hot dinners, clocking up no fewer than 17 Top Ten entries in the UK with Erasure alone."
Just loved the bio so much.

I once knew an unfortunate amount about the MP4 container ('MooV') file format.

News:Jay Z asked Apple's Jimmy Iovine to collaborate on revolutionary streaming platform Tidal

Jay Z asked Apple's Jimmy Iovine to collaborate on revolutionary streaming platform Tidal: "The rap idol hopes Tidal's new model will drive more direct compensation from streaming plays, while serving as a catalyst for artist experimentation. Not beholden to record labels, musicians would be free to create almost anything they desire. For example, artists could break conventional format and release 18-minute songs, or meld genres into completely new hybrids, testing for audience response.
Yo, Jimmy! I needa get whichu.

News:How to get all the awesome extra sounds for GarageBand 10 | Cult of Mac

How to get all the awesome extra sounds for GarageBand 10 | Cult of Mac
When you download GarageBand from the Mac App Store, you get 50 sounds, 500 loops, 1 drummer, and 2 basic lessons for guitar and piano. Likely, though, you want the full package, though, which expands the content to 200 sounds, 2,000 loops, 15 drummers, and 40 basic lessons for guitar and piano.


Frankly, I'm frightened to upgrade lest all the features I depend on are upgraded away in the interest of trying to get people to use Logic. Unfortunately the German logic of Logic is not so logical to me.
