Keep Track of Your Time and Expenses- OfficeTime

There are several things issues that really annoy me as a tech savvy teacher!

  1. Having apps that don’t sync across devices – come one people it’s 2016!
  2. Hearing people tell me how lucky I am to be a teacher because of all the time off I get!
  3. I hate buying an app and then having to pay MORE to get all the features!
  4. I really don’t like the current trend of subscription based services that the software world is going to. I want to buy it and know that I will be able to use it!

OK… so no that I have that off my chest let’s talk about keeping track of all that time I spend as a music teacher doing stuff for my job that is “off the books” or “behind the scenes”.

OfficeTimeOfficeTime ($7.99) by Productive Monkey Ltd is an amazing app that is simple and quick to use that lets me track hours worked as well as expenses.

OfficeTime has apps for iPad/iPhone (buy once use on both by the way), AppleWatch, Mac and PC

I decided this year and last year that I wanted to track my time using this app to give me better insights as to where my time was being spent the most. Just how much time did I actually spend on getting prepared for Band Camp every year? How much time did I spend on re-arranging music or transposing parts? How much time did I spend in that music library, sorting, filing, and keeping track of that music we played?

So the cool thing about this app is that I get to set it up any way that I want it to be set up. Of course that is also a down side as well – It is taking me a while to actually figure out how I should set up the app so that I can break my work down to best keep track of it all. For instance, a big area I want to keep track of are performances. Think about it though – how detailed do you want to go? Some performances are for the Fine Arts and some are for Sports. What about keeping track of set up and tear down times or getting the music around for that concert and doing music arrangements? I still am not fully happy with the way I have everything broken down. The other issue is that in my case I only wanted to track those hours outside of the contracted day so in other words if I organized uniforms during my regular scheduled prep time during the school day, then I do not enter that into this app.

In my case I created Projects for the big things I wanted to keep track of. So here are some of my Projects:

  • Band Camp
  • Instrument Inventory
  • Meetings
  • Performances
  • Teaching
  • Uniforms

Then I created categories so that I could get into greater detail. Here are some of my Categories:

  • Admin
  • Band Boosters
  • Drill Writing
  • Lesson Planning
  • Loading and Packing
  • Music Notation
  • Music Arranging
  • Parent
  • Setting Up
  • Performances – Concerts
  • Performances – Sports
  • Teacher/School

IMG_9897.PNGI then made sure the app was on my iPad, my iPhone and my desktop as well. This would give me the ability to have easy access to keeping track of each of these areas (in theory anyways). Then I went to work. Then I immediately forgot to keep track of what I was doing – silly me, adding one more thing to do in the heat of the moment! The nice thing is though that it is just as easy to go back later and add in events/expenses as it is to do it at the actual time of the event. If I actually do remember to start a timer when I start doing something then I usually forget to stop it anyways. So my way of using the app is to go back after the fact or even sometimes enter whatever events are coming up for the week ahead. The bad part is that sometimes I do have to guess at how long it actually took me to complete something.

IMG_9900.PNGWhen you set up your Categories you also are given a chance to setup how much you should get paid per hour for these hours you spend. Since I am paid a yearly stipend I really am not ever going to see an hourly wage that I earn. Of course that is one of the reasons I am trying to keep track of some of this. So I went ahead and entered an hourly wage for each category. This also will help justify my “extra” pay I get because I am a Band Director and the school knows I spend more hours working outside of the contracted day. In my case I am totally guessing at what an hourly wage would be (low balling it on purpose)

When everything is entered this app will for sure give me a much better sense of where I spend my time, where I spend too much time and where I should maybe spend more time. This app will also give me good insight as to which months I do more of something so as to help me better prepare my calendar – Uniforms for instance are mostly concentrated in August and in November. The Desktop version of the app gives me fancy little pie graphs so it’s even easier to take a look at what is going on.

Pie Chart of Time entered.png

Now I just need to remember to actually enter and track everything. One way that OfficeTime helps with this is that I can integrate my iCal right into this app and OfficeTime will pull events from my calendar into OfficeTime without any intervention from me. I enter my event into my calendar anyways so why not let OfficeTime pull it from there!

OfficeTime on my Mac allows me to keep my iPad, iPhone and Desktop all in sync with each other. It just works – it’s fun to see my Desktop update after I’ve added a bunch of events on my iPhone.

CONCLUSION

If you are looking for a great way to keep track of your time then OfficeTime would be an awesome way to accomplish this. In fact there is even a free version of the app for you to try out!

Give it a whirl and then the next time you hear someone telling you how lucky you are that you get ALL SUMMER OFF – whip out your OfficeTime and show them the REAL story!

 

 

Making Accompaniment Tracks With Your iPad

IMG_0601.PNG

Music teachers have to make a wide variety of accompaniment tracks for their students. I have made countless tracks over the years although these days it has become less of a chore because of the availability of karaoke tracks on YouTube.

I enjoy making these tracks plus I can create a track that fits my exact needs for any given situation. Maybe I just need a track for a student to practice singing their part with, maybe its an accompaniment for a flute player at church next week, maybe it’s a rehearsal track for the choir or maybe it’s a demo track for my young middle school kids so it’s not so boring to practice at home. Whatever the case…. having an iPad means it’s an easy chore for anyone! In the end you can end up wth as professional of a track as you decide to create.

IMG_0602.PNG

I created one tonight for a young lady who is practicing for an upcoming show we will be putting on in February. She is going to have a small rhythm section play live for her at the show but I want her to have a good example the next few weeks of what that band will sound like. My one drawback is that I really did not feel like taking a long time on the drum tracks tonight so when you listen please don’t judge ;)

HERE IS A VERY BASIC METHOD:

You need a recording app and a piano/guitar to make the recording. That’s it. The microphone you will use in this case is simply the mic on the iPad. There are several basic apps out there you can use – Ferrite RecordingFerrite Recording Studio by Wooji Joice or maybe even Voice Recorder Pro.pngVoice Record Pro by BejBej Apps.

Stick the iPad someplace close, hit record and start playing. When done tap stop. If you are using the Ferrite Recording Studio app you do have the option to create multiple tracks and takes in the app allowing you to go back to a spot you messed up on, cut it out and record that one section again into a new track giving you a better final recording.

When happy with the recording you then share the recording. Both apps have a ton of different ways to share the final product.

Quick, fast and easy enough for ANYONE!

HERE IS A SLIGHTLY MORE ADVANCED METHOD:

In my case I’m never quite happy with something that basic so I wanted a recording that had Piano, Bass, Drums (at least something basic), an Electric Guitar and one additional Keyboard part for filler.

MAIN APP – So I choose to use Cubasis small iconCubasis by Steinberg for most of my recordings like this. You could simply use Cubasis only and get all of those parts that I wanted as this app has a bunch of internal sounds. So that would be an amazing way for you to start getting your feet wet doing this. As I have collected a ton of music instrument apps over the years I wanted to use some of those so let me share how that works….

SECOND MAIN APP – First of all you have to use AudioBus small iconAudioBus to make this process smooth. Inter-App-Audio is another way to go but it failed me tonight. AudioBus is an amazing app that takes the sound from one app, like Korg Module SmallKorg Module that I used for the piano sounds, and pumps it out to Cubasis. AudioBus also has a companion app called AudioBus RemoteAudioBus Remote that I run on my iPhone giving me greater flexibility. ABRemote allows me to keep the play/record/stop buttons for Cubasis available at all times even though I might have a different app in the foreground on my iPad – this is a HUGE help!

MAIN PIECE OF HARDWARE – Now, as a keyboardist I almost always use an external keyboard when making these tracks. My Novation Launchkey49 is amazing as it sits right by my desk, plugs into my iPad with a USB cable into the Camera Connector Kit and is powered by the iPad.

OTHER APPS – As I mentioned I wanted five instruments in this recording. I used four instrument apps to make this happen –

  1. Paino – Korg Module SmallKorg Module (Beautiful piano sounds especially with the IAP Ivory Piano pack
  2. iFretlessIconiFretless Bass  – Such great bass sounds and a wonderfully fun interface to play the parts on. I can not get the same sound controlling iFretless from my external keyboard.
  3. Guitar – Came from Geo SynthesizerGeoSynth. I love the playing interface on this app as it is easy to play on the touch screen, gives me flexibility in the sound and controls other apps as well! I will often use GeoSynth to control other apps but not tonight.
  4. 2nd Keyboard Part – Korg iM1 LargeiM1 has a zillion sounds in it. All of them are from the Korg M1 and still sound so good!
  5. Drums – Came from Cubasis small iconCubasis

THE PROCESS

IMG_0600.PNG

Set up for AudioBus

Load up AudioBus first then add in the apps in the input slot and Cubasis into the output slot.

Set a tempo.

Create a drum track – I simply recorded four measures and copy and pasted them a bunch of times. I really didn’t want to dink with fancy drum tracks but I also did not want to record to just a metronome (how boring!)

The Piano track was next. For the piano track I actually recorded three tracks tonight. The two I recorded first were LHand and RHand as MIDI data. This allowed me to edit timing issues and missed notes without having to fiddle around with digital audio. With the MIDI tracks you can go in and just just one note, make another note longer, delete a couple measure and re-record. It’s so much easier to edit the MIDI! THEN when the MIDI recording was correct I played the MIDI track from Cubasis and recorded the AudioBus audio coming from Korg Module and created an audio track. After I had an audio track of the Piano part I simply muted the MIDI tracks in Cubasis.

IMG_9870.PNG

AudioBus Remote on my iPhone

Then I recorded the bass part and guitar parts. I mentioned AudioBus Remote and these tracks are a perfect example of why I use the remote app. Even though Cubasis is doing the recording it will be in the background for these tracks. That’s because I played these parts live using the interface of each app. It’s a wonderful invention!

The last part to be recorded was the extra keyboard part using the external keyboard playing iM1.

I then quickly made a few mixing adjustments in Cubasis – This is really cool to be able to do. You simply make sure the W button is red in the mixer section. Then hit play and as the track is playing you move the sliders. Then make sure that the R button stays green after that and you will be able to sit back and watch the automation take place. I made you a video so you can see it in action (it’s like 30 seconds long)….

 

At then end I simply upload the track to SoundCloud and let my student know where to find it.

CONCLUSION

If you are a music teacher then you need to know that this process is amazingly simple. You can make a pretty darn good quality track for you kids to practice with or perform with! In the past I used an expensive keyboard or my computer with expensive software in order to accomplish this task. Now it’s much cheaper and easier. Go try it! Let me know how you create tracks like this if you do it a different way. I like sharing ideas!

Here is my final product – WAY better than trying to “imagine” what “the band” will sound like when rehearsing at home…

 

 

Is It “My Music” – Great Discussion about using loops.

There is this great discussion over on the iPad Musician Facebook site about whether or not using loops can be called “Your music”. I’ve posted some of it here because I think this is a great discussion for educators to have…. (Please don’t bother leaving comments below unless it is about using loops in education… :) )

ORIGINAL QUESTION:

“Say you buy all the soundpacks for maschine2 (or one of those kind of apps) and you use their sounds to make tracks, is it really “your music” or do you consider it a kind of “remix”?”

 RESPONES:
1 –   Personally I know its not “cheating” but has a vacuum of achievement.. Technically I know it’s my music. I am also sure you don’t want to start herding goats.
2-I thought using loops was cheating, so I programmed my own using samples. I then thought using samples was cheating, so I recorded real drums. I then thought that programming it was cheating, so I learned to play drums for real. I then thought using bought drums was cheating, so I learned to make my own. I then thought using pre-made skins was cheating, so I killed a goat and skinned it. I then thought that that was cheating too, so I grew my own goat from a baby goat. I also think that is cheating, but I’m not sure where to go from here. I haven’t made any music lately, what with the goat farming and all.
3- I consider it a remix. I come from the land of playing an actual instrument, so I tend to want to compose my own stuff. There’s nothing wrong with using sound packs, loops, samples, etc. I wouldn’t want someone using something I created and call it their own, but I’m totally okay with them creating a variation on a theme. I myself have used loops to create a skeleton of a song, but eventually replace the loops with my own stuff.
4- Loops = lazy. To a point. But it’s more about what you do with the tools at hand. Back in the hardware studio I had years ago there were stacks of sample CDs. It’s no different really from using presets on synths. Creating your own loops using sound packs in apps is probably what the majority of us are doing. But if you were just sequencing someone else’s loops, well, that’s cheating.
5- Yes, it’s yours. Pick up and play an acoustic guitar – the sounds it makes are generally the same, and you arrange those sounds to make your melody. You can play them in various ways for sound variations. Doing the same with an app isn’t so different. A musical instrument can be anything you make music with.
6- It’s your music, even loops. That’s what they are made for, for people to make music with. Rappers have made very unique and creative songs using nothing but lifted loops and sounds. It’s all about what you do with it. Just stacking loops from a pack ain’t very creative, but there’s much more you can do with samples and loops.
7-

14 Best Drum Apps for Musicians (Do You Have Special Students With Limitations? Read This!)

The possibilities are endless so let’s not limit ourselves or our students!

(Some of these apps are currently on sale so I have underlined those prices – if these apps grab your attention you will want to act fast to get that price!)

Todays technology give us so many more options for ourselves and our students. When was the last time you sent home a drum set with one of your students? When was the last time your students lit up with excitement when they heard music that was performed by them but you and that student know there is no way that could ever have happened on a traditional instrument? I am not just talking about students with physical and mental limitations either but this is the scenario that inspired me to write this blog post. I have several students who REALLY love performing but when one is limited to a wheelchair it puts a damper on their dream of playing drum set.

What can we give to our students to heighten their involvement, to increase their level of music creation and to give them a greater sense of accomplishment? The majority of us are of course looking for ways to perform music live with our students but we should not limit our search to just that realm. We need to open doors for possibilities allowing students to create/compose/manipulate music outside of live performance as well.

Apps To Just Play –

These apps can all be used by ANYONE to play drums with… and in some cases do a whole lot more than “just play drums”! This first batch of apps can all be easily integrated into any ensembles performance by simply plugging the iPad/iPhone into an amp via the headphone jack and a simple cable.

ImpaktorImpaktor by BeepStreet (Currently on a 60% sale for $6.99) An app to get!

Impaktor is without doubt one of the most fun drum apps out there. It is a semi-modular drum synth app that can convert you finger drumming (or any rhythmic audio) into a drum line via the device’s built-in mic – which is undeniably cool.

This would be an amazing app to perform live with but as it responds to all sound coming into the microphone the possibilities are limited in a live setting.

Praxis Beats Drum MachinePraxis Beats Drum Machine (Currently on sale for $9.99) – If you are into creating all sorts of stuttering, glitchy beats with some manic rolls, then this is exactly what Praxis Beats is designed for. So, if you are using the ‘2 steps’ setting, and place a hihat hit, what you actually get within the time allocated to that single grid square is 2 hihat hits. Equally, use the ‘4 steps’ option with the snare and you get a short 4-hit snare roll….   or go bonkers and use the 16 step option all over the place and gets some really mad glitchy, buzzing sounds.

The reason I included Praxis in this list is the ability to control the beat with individual parameters down to 128th notes in a simple, intuitive interface. Instantly program complex loops with maximum precision.

  • Beat Automations –  Tap the ‘triangle icon’ (step automation) button (next to the ‘1 step’ button) and, when you then tap on an existing hit within the grid, the volume, panning and speed automation panel appears. Tapping the XY pad icon button opens a further pop-up panel that presents you with two XY pads and a set of effects options that you can assign to the X or Y axis of each pad. There are three basic filter options, delay, reverb, distortion, speed, volume and pan options to pick from

In Conclusion

It doesn’t matter our capabilities, our physical motor skills, our experience, or our training… there are a ton of apps out there that allow for some amazing performances on drums! Technology can help level out the possibilities for anyone by giving us access to tools and techniques that using traditional instruments would never be possible! Apps open the sonic palette of tones available at our fingertips. Apps give anyone the chance to create and share music that rivals music created in a professional recording studio by professional musicians with years of training and experience.

The new technologies coming out like Bluetooth MIDI and Ableton Link are opening even more doors for all of us! I will write more about these possibilities soon.

Session Band Apps still On Massive Sale! Don’t forget bundles!

If you ever have worked with Band In A Box then you are familiar with the concept of the Session Band apps. These things are pretty crazy fast to get a background for a piece of music you are working on. Pick the Session Band app that best fits the style you are going for, type in some chords and hit play! Boom…. Instant fun!

There is at least one HUGE difference here in these apps from some other apps like Band in a Box the loops you find in Session Band are actually recorded by real people! This means even better and more natural sounding loops. The loops all allow you to adjust tempo to your liking. The loops are also copyright free which means you can use the genius results from your explorations in your next big CD release!

There are 12 apps available covering Jazz, Blues, Rock, Piano, EDM, Acoustic Guitar and there is even one that's just plain Drums. There are several volumes of some of these with plans to make more volumes. They are all at $1.99 ( not sure for how much longer though)

Here's another thought too…. BUNDLES!!!! I love bundles of apps but really wish they were easier to find! Here's the fun part…. If you have already purchased one or two of the apps then when there is a sale going on the bundle becomes cheaper too! So in my case the bundle of Sessin Band Apps has 10 of their apps included and costs $12.99 currently. I've bought 2 of those apps before so through “Complete My Bundle” my price now is $6.01! Now THAT is a deal!

The Jazz Bundle has three volumes and is $3.99

The Acoustic Bundle has two apps in in and is $2.99

The big bundle of all ten apps is at $12.99

 

These apps are a great starting point for some people, for other people they actually can serve as excellent accaompaniment tracks for performance. Other people will get inspired by them and others will spend hours in these things.
