When Tim Cook introduced the Apple Watch, I was very excited and enthusiastic, as any good Apple fanboy should have been. This blind enthusiasm and the desperate need for something new to change the world was not impaired by the watch’s price tag in any way. Since we all know that Apple is working on becoming a luxury brand, everything seemed pretty reasonable for a paradigm shifting, game changing new device that would redefine time itself. For some reason, I opted for a […]
ricfreak: New kid on the block…………….Steve Lukather Music Man Luke III Music Man Luke III, totally the one and only guitar I’d want if I had any skill that could justify the investment. Also I would love the AMPLIFi TT by line6, a totally kick ass tabletop multi effect with a remote app for iOS or Android. for just 188 €.
When I tried Composer the other day, I especially liked the approach they took on collaboration between musicians. They really seem to think of it like working with repositories when it comes to managing input from different sources and keeping track of revisions etc. Source: Online Music Collaboration, https://www.composrapp.com November 16 2014 So maybe there’s is github for musicians in the making, or at least there should be. What they really should do is, is provide an environment to share and collaborate […]
Since my bedroom wall is supposed to be decorated with Polaroid instant photos, I spent an evening with my Impossible Instant Lab, developing a series of photos with an iPhone 5 and the Impossible iOS App. The result being a bunch of color and black & white photos soon to be displayed in my personal little art gallery. It comes at a price, though. 8 instant photos produced with Impossible Instant film sum up to 20 €, not considering the […]
In September 2014 Elgato introduced Eve Smart Home Sensors supporting Apple’s HomeKit. I am not quite sure what to do with them really, but I am convinced I need stuff like this. I can’t wait for a connected home. I would even consider renovating on a large scale to make it happen.

After reading several reviews of Apple’s GarageBand for iPad, I couldn’t resist. For just 4,99 $ it seems to be the best 8 track recording studio I’have ever seen. If you are interested I recommend this review by iLounge. At least trying out the drums is something you shouldn’t miss. I especially like the integrated sampler, allowing you to record your own samples. External microphones would be a recommended accessory for this. There is a integrated sample library in addition to you […]
When using Apple Logic Studio 9, a DAW controller always comes in handy. Any control unit of higher quality easily costs more than $ 1,300 (e.g. the Mackie MCU). Now there is an alternative: the first sophisticated iPad DAW controller app AC-7 Core from Saitara Software. The apps run on iPads/iPhones/iPod Touches running iOS4.2 or higher. Wether this app solves all your problems or not, it is quite a setup for small money. For myself I must admit I still […]
