Sorry I have not mentioned this earlier – it IS band camp season though. Plus I took four days to go with my kids to Unity Christian Music Festival last week. It was a wonderful time to hear bands I’ve never heard live, to hear bands I’ve never hear and to gain a renewal of musical worship and praise.
Korg has their music apps on sale until August 21st! The apps are up to 50% off currently. Might be a good time to grab an app you don’t have. Might be a good time to grab these for your school owned iPads too! Makes you budget go a bit further!
Before you ask, yes these apps really are worth that much money! If you have not bought any serious, professional level music instrument apps yet you may be expecting $5, $2 maybe even $8 but considering that these apps give you an excellent recreation of the original hardware that they are emulating…. which would cost you WAY more than the app would! Plus you can carry it around with you in your shoulder bag! These are serious music making apps people! The sound quality is outstanding and the workflow is outstanding!
There is a good reason to haul that old gear around with you on stage like the bass player from the David Crowder performance I saw last week – that old moog modular synth on stage looked REALLY REALLY REALLY COOL and the audience loves seeing you twist and turn those knobs! Nothing on an iPad will replace that experience but these apps are pretty sweet! (Check out the picture at the bottom for that synth from the David Crowder setup!)
(and just in case you were wondering – that guitar player is a legend… played in the Ragamuffin Band with Rich Mullins! I loved seeing and learning of some connections in the music world between bands of old and bands of new!)
