“What’s up”, a little video which has a vague connection to Guy Fawkes Night

Well, it’s got a sparkler in it away, and it was all handheld made too, back in 2008.

Here’s what I said about it back then:

“This video is more of a accident than anything else. I was re-creating an old song in Bhajis Loops and decided that I wanted to work on it on the desktop, so I exported it to a MIDI file. I thought I’d listen to it using MixPad from miniMusic and found that it sounded nothing like the original track. So, I recorded it using my Boss Micro-BR and then added a few spare video clips too.”

Back in 2007: Google announces Android

Strange to think of a world without Android as a mobile OS, but today in 2007 Google announced their mobile OS for the first time. Here’s the original post.

Voice Jam Studio arrives from TC-Helicon

TC-Helicon announces Voice Jam Studio for iPad, the first music app that lets anyone create remarkable sounding studio-quality vocal compositions with advanced looping, powerful professional effects and seamless sharing via YouTube and SoundCloud.

Voice Jam Studio is a fun way for creative singers to produce music, explore their voices, unlock their potential and improve their craft. It is the only looping app designed with the complete performance and recording workflow in mind—from project conception to production to publishing.

Looping—recording a series of words and sounds and layering them atop of one another to create compositions—is a popular trend among singers, brought to the mainstream by countless Hip Hop artists and top vocalists such as Ed Sheeran, KT Tunstall, Dub FX, Imogen Heap and Ani DiFranco.

TC Helicon pioneered this musical form in its hardware-based products for years, and now brings the world’s most powerful vocal effects and looper to the iPad. While simple looping apps can be found in the iTunes store, Voice Jam Studio offers singers of all levels far more performance and flexibility. In addition to TC-Helicon’s proprietary vocal processing technologies, Voice Jam Studio enables advanced recording with four fully independent stereo tracks for loops of up to eight minutes—the longest loop time of any looping app—and 50 professional studio effects presets.
A huge range of TC-Helicon created sounds and effects—including HardTune, auto pitch correction, gender bending, Transducer FX, distortion, delay, reverb, echo, chorus, flange, doubling and micromod—currently used by renowned recording artists – let singers hear themselves differently, using the tools they need to make magic with only their voice and an iPad.

“Voice Jam Studio is the ‘GoPro’ for singers of every skill level who want to create powerful vocal performances anywhere and share them quickly with anyone in the world over the Internet,” said Fred Speckeen, global business manager at TC-Helicon. “We believe this app is the most powerful thing to happen to the human voice since the microphone.”

Singers will enjoy Voice Jam Studio’s audio and video integrated recording capabilities that allow them to share video content captured by the iPad face cam and video screen cam (that can show how compositions were made) with friends, bandmates and fans via SoundCloud or YouTube. Voice Jam Studio has AudioBus and Inter-App Audio integration, allowing singers to interconnect with popular guitar and drum apps, as well as GarageBand, to further enhance their music.

The Voice Jam Studio app is intuitive and easy to use, featuring built-in tutorials that help users hit the ground running as they choose their creative paths.

Considering that it used to cost thousands of dollars for the array of tools offered in this app, Voice Jam Studio represents a staggering value at only $19.99. In fact, for a limited time, vocalists can take advantage of a special introductory price of $9.99.

Voice Jam Studio is available today on the app store:
