Dirty Ebtides

Forgot to post one of my Recording projects. Features a couple of long time brothers of the revolution. Rob James and Kevin Ertel. This recording is me using the internet to bridge the gap of two musicians that live about 200 miles away from each other. This is our first draft and I hope to give it another shot some time this year. the tune is called "Ebtides" It was written by Rob where he lays down bass and drums and a few other parts at The Jamesdrive freestudio project. and then Kevin put down some guitar chops here at the auxlo studio.

Irig update

Ive had the pleasure of playing around with the Irig unit and the free amplitube app. and I do believe this is not a load of garbage. under the correct circumstances I do believe the muse of creative juices could flow. With a little app. purchace one could put together a cute little recording device for there Iphone although This would truly kick some A using an Ipad. I threw together a recording without thought for this post, just to show where the sonic realm of this sh*t can go. with a little thought and the purchase of unlocking the four track recorder one could have a lotta fun.

Sound clip using my iphone (Not possible a few years back).

A few of draw backs that I found were that if you plug your unit in to a computer there is a lot of of line interference, so keep it unplugged and use the iphone battery. Irig really blows for acoustic stuff, you have to crank every thing up and you get a lotta noise. Maybe if you upgrade to a better app., but the free app blows for stuff that does not have some overdrive behind it, and to end my nonsense I will complete my complaining by saying the reverb is really lame so use it very carefully.

Got a new piece of gear today, I hope very soon to get active with it. I'll post as the scene develops.

iRig Plug Interface Adapter

The new iRig interface adapter is the easiest way to get your instrument’s signal into iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. Simply plug iRig into your mobile device, plug your instrument into the iRig, plug headphones or amplifier to the output and you are ready to rock!

The iRig is the ideal companion not only to the mobile AmpliTube app, but also works with any other recording, processing or tuning app. Plus, you can also use the iRig with line level signal sources such as synthesizers, keyboards or mixers.
