Guitar solo on iPad shreds

At first I kind of made fun of GarageBand on the iPad because I never thought anyone could make truly compelling music on a touch device. That's all changed after I saw Cult of Mac point out George Lambro's guitar solo on the iPad. I'll let the music speak for itself, but I will say this is how...

Apogee's Jam connects your guitar to your iPad

We've seen the iRig and the AmpKit, two interfaces for getting a line-in from your guitar or bass. Both come with effect racks and sound pretty darn good. But where do you go from there? How about a dock interface that records 44.1 kHz, 24-bit audio without line noise? Apogee's Jam guitar...

OMGuitar iPad app lets you strum away on your iPad

This music video of a girl playing Garbage's "Only Happy When it Rains" (embedded in the continuation of this post) is actually an ad for an iPad app called OMGuitar, but that doesn't make it any less impressive -- the app looks pretty good. It allows you to hit a button to choose whatever chord...

Review: GarageBand '11 is worth diving into

iLife '11 has a lot of goodies, but none impressed me more than GarageBand's new capabilities (although I am pretty enthralled with some of the new iMovie features). GarageBand has taken another step toward being a "prosumer" music-recording solution, while still maintaining its roots as a simple,...
