A Musician's Best Friend

More than just for playing tunes

I’m not only a musician and teacher; I’ve been a PDA enthusiast for many years. It all started in the mid 90s, when I got my first handheld, Apple’s short-lived Newton. I moved on to the Palm Pilot and a great piece of software called ittyMIDI, which allowed me to play back MIDI files, change tempo, set volume levels, and mute individual tracks. When my Palm Pilot died, I moved on to a Windows Mobile Pocket PC, which had more multimedia capabilities and a variety of third-party programs that turned the Pocket PC into a musician’s helper.
